SheBeat Meets...



SheBeat Meets... is my latest project to share with ya'll... 

I have long loved radio-making and radio-listening, so after much umming and ahhhing, I am now in production of my very own new music podcast! Think BBC Introducing without a budget... Your fav singer-songwriter chatting to other singer-songwriters about music making etc, exclusive live performances, plus a chance to discover someone new... I always say, just around the corner could lurk your new favourite song! 

One of the motivations for my making this little addition to the big bad world of podcasting is how few outlets there are for talking about your music as a grassroots artist... I'm hoping to give a platform to a handful of artists you might never hear about otherwise... I was inspired, in part, by ItMattersRadio with Kerry & Monica who invited me to be their guest a few months back, which I found such a great experience. I also really enjoy a gal pal podcast called Call Your Girlfriend - recommended to me by my own girlfriend KC - which often laments the lack of women in podding... so here I am! 

The series will be in season format, I am recording six episodes which will be dropped weekly via the soundcloud page below hopefully starting sometime next month... bear with me caller ;) 

After the first season I will take stock and seek feedback on whether we all want to carry on for another batch... but first we shall suck it and see!

This is where SheBeat Meets... will live when we go live, so add it as a bookmark beat fans...

Festival Fun



This weekend I'm performing at the first edition of The Great Estate at Scorrier House - they're calling it a rambunctious garden fete - so looking forward to finding the fun!

Am super proud to be playing the BBC Introducing Cornwall stage Sunday lunchtime - which is a prime hangover spot time for a festival, so don't worry I'll be gentle ;) So thankful to BBC Introducing for the support they've given me this last year playing lots of my tracks - you can hear all my published songs on Spotify and there's a few on Soundcloud too, iTunes... you know, all the places...

BBC Introducing is in part the inspo behind my new podcast series project currently in production - an indie platform for new unsigned and independent artists... going to publish once I've got a few editions under my belt then decide whether to do more/ how often etc - stay tuned! SheBeat Meets... coming soon!

The Great Outdoors


What could be better than the sounds of SheBeat in the fresh air? It's festival season once more, and slowly but surely the dates are dropping into the Chez Beat mailbox... 

I really enjoy an open air gig - it has a totally different vibe to a venue gig - and sunshine permitting is a great day for everyone!  The snap above was taken when I played Wirral Festival of Firsts a couple of years back on Hoylake Beach... I recall it was so windy I nearly lost my dignity, but thankfully a friend with a safety pin saved the day! Ha! You hear all the best rock & roll stories here... 

As soon as I can confirm my dates I'll brb ^_^  

Meanwhile enjoy this free download, just because...
