Chain Wallet on this weeks show!

NEWS

What a month! Well it’s been a busy one so I couldn’t get to this blog unfortunately! I took in SXSW in Austin – You can hear me featured on a BBC Introducing in Manchester SXSW montage HERE from 1 hr 30 mins in as I chat to Manchester band False Advertising and to Aquilo on BBC Introducing in Lancashire from 1 hr 40 mins right HERE.

Last week I was in Canada for The Juno’s and Ottawa Music Summit where I spoke on a panel and experienced some of Canada’s freshest music talent. I talked about the awards and my experiences in Ottawa on BBC Radio Lancashire right HERE from 44 minutes in.

In between those two weeks a project I’ve been working on for a few months came to fruition as a special BBC Introducing music event took place in Lancashire which saw me co-present a music industry special for our artists which was so informative and helpful. A panel of five music industry specialists share their knowledge with us and you can listen in HERE.

I chatted to Andy about Canada, clarinets, his writing process, tour entertainment and more on tonights show!
