We all want to be heard, who is listening?

there's something about sitting in a room filled with people listening to live music. As a musician living in London what you will come to realise is that although there are many venues to enjoy music, not all of them have a listening audience. Most people go out to music events with friends which is cool but most times, people use that time to catch up with their friends while the musician struggles to be heard.

We all want to be heard... don't we, but who's listening?

For four years I was the host of the weekly acoustic night, Portobello Acoustic Sessions - i really enjoyed sitting in that cosy room filled with listening audience. I was sad to let that gig go! 

A few months ago, I was asked to curate a monthly event at the Omnibus  in Clapham Common called Lánre + Special Guests 

It's a room filled with people who love music - I get to play some of my songs and introduce people to musicians they may or may not have heard of. 

Below is a video of me talking about it - more like a day in the life of kinda thing! :-) 

The next Lánre + Special Guests is Friday 26th June

Thank you for listening ;-)

I am a believer in the saying that... We need to tell our stories, otherwise others will tell it for us and it almost always is inaccurate. No one can tell your story like you can.

I am currently putting together a series of short stories and this is the first of those.

It's about my hair - see video below

PS: don't ask me how my neck's doing!! hehehe
