This week’s guest is music web designer Ross Barber-Smith from Electric Kiwi.
As well as making beautiful websites for bands and musicians across the globe, Ross has also created content to help artists with articles on everything from building music communities and why he loves Twitter, to an open letter to music fans telling them the best way to support the artists they love.
Ross is based in Glasgow but he co-hosts a podcast with Marcio Novelli, an artist from Canada, called Bridge the Atlantic which launched in 2014 and has featured guests from all corners of the music industry and has over 4 & ½ thousand subscribers and over a million views on their YouTube channel so I’m really grateful and excited to welcome Ross Barber-Smith.
