'It's Like Learning to Ride a Bike' - Leeds Musician Nicky Bray breaks down barriers to songwriting
Play • 35 min

In this episode we speak with Leeds-based Singer Songwriter Nicky Bray who runs an open mic called Tower of Song in the city's Fox and Newt pub.
The event, run alongside co-founder and co-host Carl Flattery (a lecturer in songwriting at Leeds Beckett University) is in its ninth year and now has a sister event in Newcastle called Tower in the Toon.
The emphasis at both events is strictly on 'having fun' and has been so inspirational, that Nicky's parents, Frank and Ros, (both featured in the podcast) have started penning their own tunes. Tower in the Toon is cohosted by Brian Wilkinson.
