It’s finally here! BBC Radio live session

Hi folks,

So here it is, my live session for Dean Jackson’s ‘The Beat’ show on BBC Radio Nottingham. I’ve received an overwhelming response so far, with over 2300 views in just over 3 days :) (UPDATE: the video now has over ten thousand views! :D)

You can also listen to the radio broadcast on iPlayer if you missed it (it features an extended version of the interview) :

It’s also worth checking out the first part of the show here – there’s some great coverage of Summer Sundae festival, with a surprise performance from the amazing Martha Bean

Glastonbudget – the time has arrived!

So I’ve got my set all sorted for tomorrow, and I’m actually pretty happy with it. I’ve largely avoided the I’ve-played-this-one-to-death syndrome, which even despite having a large amount of songs to choose from, it can be difficult to steer clear of at times. On a side note, I’m currently enjoying a Boost bar and it is most delicious.

On another side note – I’ve been featured on two podcasts recently, so I thought I’d share them with you all!

The first is LeftLion magazines ‘Poddingham’ podcast, which you can listen to/download here:
http://www.leftlion.co.uk/audio.cfm/id/115

I recorded 3 songs in total for the live session, 1 of which is featured in the podcast (along with an exclusive interview and a track from my album Perfectly Fine) – the full live session should be available to download for free from the LeftLion website come Monday :)

My track ‘I Want Out’ from the free Kala Sessions EP has been featured on the latest Spencerwire Radio podcast, available here: http://spencerwire.blogspot.com/2011/05/spencerwire-radio-third-edition.html

That’s all for now – see you at Glastonbudget!

All the best,

Marc.

First radio play on the BBC!

So I was very pleased this morning to be greeted with an email from the BBC introducing site informing me that on Saturday my track ‘Shadows’ from my album ‘Perfectly Fine’ was broadcast on BBC Radio Nottingham’s The Beat. The Beat is a radio show championing local and unsigned music, and is hosted by Dean Jackson, who is well known for discovering lots of up and coming unsigned talent.

If you didn’t manage to catch the show, you can listen to it on BBC’s iPlayer here: Launch iPlayer

There’s some great stuff on the show including a great single from We Show up on Radar & an amazing live session from Vintage Trouble

If you would like to hear more of my music on BBC radio then feel free to drop Dean Jackson an email at beat@bbc.co.uk and let him know how much you enjoyed hearing my music on his show.

Also, on a side note – anyone in Nottingham tomorrow, I’m playing at Acoustic Rooms at The Rescue Rooms, for their Dot to Dot festival auditions. As always, entry is free and there are happy hour prices on drinks all night, so if you’re around it would great to see you there! :)

Ramblings, announcements…et cetera! FESTIVALS, MORE FESTIVALS??

I did not hit her, I DID NAAAATT!!!!! Oh hi there…person reading this!

Yes, many of you will have not understood that, and I risked sounding like a complete nutter. Maybe I am. Maybe I have just spent too much time watching this film:

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQ4KzClb1C4]
Yes, the film in question being The Room; undoubtedly the worst film ever made. It features Arnold Schwarzenegger in Borat mode in one of the most bizarre love triangle stories you’ll ever witness, interspersed with bad bad softcore pornography and drug dealer subplots that lead nowhere. And that’s only skimming the surface!
Anyway, enough of that. I am sat here in front of my computer in the early hours of the morning to deliver to you news of a festival-y nature. Yes, some of you will already be aware of this, but I don’t care, prepare to be made aware once more! This year I am playing, not just one, but TWO UK festivals! I am rather chuffed to say the least – it’s going to be fun :)
This first is Glastonbudget festival in Leicestershire. It’s held at turnpost farm in Wymeswold over 3 days – 27th 29th May 2011. Glastonbudget festival initially started life as a tribute act festival, but for the past 3-4 years or so it’s been showcasing the very best unsigned and independent artists too. This year, one of those artists will be me, and I’m very happy to be a part of it. Thanks again to all those who helped me get a place on the bill!
I should also mention that lots of other fellow East Midlands based musicians will be on the bill, which is really cool. I’ll be playing alongside local bands like the Breadchasers, Jimmy the Squirrel, and Emily and the Martins.
The second festival i’ll be playing this year is Out the box festival. It’s being organised by the bassist from Nottingham band The Swiines – who play awesome indie rock akin to the Artic Monkeys and Stone Roses. They’ll be playing mainstage along with the fantastic Jake Bugg (brilliant young country & folk singer) and more. I’ll be on the acoustic stage on the 18th July, alongside the amazing Gallery 47 and newcomer solo artist Paige Guy.
You can find out mroe about the festival and the rest of the line up at: http://www.outtheboxfestival.co.uk/lineup.aspx
I would love to be playing even more festivals this year – I have applied for End of the Road festival and Tramlines festival, but are there any others you would like to see me play? Please let me know, get in touch on here, twitter, facebook or drop me an email
I have some tales of my escapades with the band The Deeper in Wolverhampton – where we did a photoshoot with renowned photographer Benjamin Lycett – hopefully coming your way at some point. Got so much going on right now it’s hard to find a spare moment to think!
As ever, thank you to everyone who is showing me support with my music right now. It is your support that spurs me on, and allows me to do what I love most – making music! :)
All the best,
Marc.
