16 Dec 2013


Huge, huge year of music. The internet's been doing its rounds of collecting everyone's Top-whatever-lists and you could say this is my contribution. Although, to be honest, I realise it won't greatly differ from anyone else's. But, my contribution to music consumption in general has arguably been my biggest yet – I attended 19 live shows, including over 50 artists at venues large and small from arenas to recording studios. More of such details, as well as every purchase and download, are all logged on my regularly maintained Music page.

I've found myself (unintentionally) using this Blog more and more as a platform to present music material that I've been engaging with, more so than any other topic, and I suppose that's a natural reflection of how I'm spending my time. 2014 already promises so much and I don't foresee the intense interest stopping on my part either. I've got gigs lined up for CHVRCHES, Justin Timberlake Ellie Goulding, MØ and BANKS already – and I'm loving it.
