Singing The Post-Album Blues

I don't think I should really be surprised by how I've been feeling this last week or so - I worked extremely hard over a sustained period of several weeks in order to reach my self-imposed deadline to finish the Survival album and finally be able to move on to working on other projects. (It…Read more Singing The Post-Album Blues

Interview Thursday: Jacky Stoneygate

Thanks to W.Wang’s World Commentary for interviewing me! I thought it would be cool to share it on my blog, too 🙂

W. Wang's World Commentary

Interview Thursday is back, and this week I’m featuring electronic artist and producer Jacky Stoneygate from East Midlands, UK! Here below is the interview:

W.: Please tell us an introduction of yourself!

Jacky Stoneygate: I grew up in Leicestershire, England and was fascinated by music and musicians from a very early age. My first proper musical instrument was a guitar, when I was 8, which was very exciting but I can still remember doing the homework after the first lesson with painful fingers, frustration and tears! Thankfully it got easier! Later, I dabbled with sequencing software and a 4 track tape machine, dreaming of making an album of my own songs.  It took a long time, but now I make music which aims to give the listener some head-space to stop, unwind and think more deeply about life and the world around them.

W.: What makes you start your music career?

Survival – New Album!

With Dad doing a lot better and dropping hints that I have my own life to get back to, I've felt able to concentrate a lot more on finishing my started music - punctuated by a few medical appointments that I've provided transport for and just keeping an eye out to make sure things are…Read more Survival – New Album!

Playlist of the Week (2018/20)

This week's POTW is a bit different from previous ones, which have all so far been Spotify playlists. This one is a Musicoin playlist, run by artist Juxta via the Atom Collector Records website, with a little help from another artist, Self Suffice, aka Rapoet.  Musicoin doesn't have playlist features built into its website just yet, so…Read more Playlist of the Week (2018/20)

Playlist of the Week (2018/19)

This week's POTW is compiled by the obscurely named 'The X Reposts'. This is actually a selection of tracks that this Spotify user found via the Atom Collector Records site, which I've already mentioned in a couple of posts, but is not one of their playlists. A quick look at The X Reposts' website shows that…Read more Playlist of the Week (2018/19)
