After visiting Rome and seeing the incredible Baroque art and architecture wonderfully decorated inside the many chapels and churches there, one can see how ‘human creativity’ has influenced and shaped who we are as a species. I would go as far as to say that visual art and music, performance and literature, drive our species in all areas of human development. As both a musician and writer, I feel like I can experience both the process, creation of music and text, the finished product, and apply these experiences to my writing.
As a post-graduate in Popular Music Studies, I have learnt how to ‘view’ a piece of music and analyse it from all angles. As a music-lover, I have a huge back catalogue of CDs, records, biographies and magazines to reference from, with which I enjoy reviewing music. I currently review live shows and music for online music magazine ‘3 Songs & Out’ and I have studied with Liverpool theatre company ‘Grin Theatre’ At present, I work for Vulcan Studios Ltd which is a music rehearsal and recording studio complex. All of these organisations have taught me how to work within a creative environment and how to perfect my writing skills.
I look forward to meeting and working with other writers and musicians and I hope to learn from them and their peers.
