Music

Nathan Emmanuel (a.k.a. Nayshan), Musician & Journalist

Initially, that was through university. In my final year, I had to make either a presentation or a mini documentary piece. Now, me being me, living outside the box, I didn't just want to make that regular documentary-style kind of thing, and talk about my so-called financial issues during university. I wanted to make it different; I wanted to put it in a narrative form that people are more likely to connect with and engage with. Something different that catches their eye a bit more, and that's what really inspired the rapumentary style...

Zoltan Torre, Musician

I always say that nothing particular inspired me to write this song. I just wanted to make something fun that gets you moving. I found the guitar loop that you can hear at the start of the song, and me and my friend Jake immediately started working on it. Even what I talk about in the song doesn’t really relate to me. I imagine it to be about a night out, meeting someone and having that tension between the two, all just happening on that night only; maybe becoming a one-night stand...

Emma Gale, Singer-Songwriter

I always wanted to sing, so when I was like in my early teens I did something like the ‘gang show’ in Essex, where I come from, and that was the Scout movement. That was my first taste of being on the stage. Then I joined a local dramatic group and I did some shows and musicals when I was very young. I didn’t get into a band until I was 25; I started off as a backing singer in Cambridge for a covers band. Then I moved down here and set up my own band...

Local Musician’s BLM Rap to Play on BBC Radio

The 6-minute video, entitled Thoughts of a Black Guy, which features clips of the Black Lives Matter protest on Bournemouth Pier Approach earlier this month, has already received a lot of positive responses. However, today, the musician and filmmaker revealed that the rap segment would be played on not only BBC Radio London at 10:30am on Wednesday 17th June, but also on BBC Radio Solent between 12 and 1pm that same day.

Jake Blenkinship, Singer

This album is basically the manifestation of everything I’ve felt over the past year. Most of the things that have happened to me since I started it have gone in there. Over the past three years of releasing music, I’ve been finding out who I want to be as an artist and what I want to sound like, and this album is a milestone in that discovery...

David G Taylor, Artist / Writer

My artwork sometimes features textile-like abstract patterns and colours that reference artists such as Alexander Calder and Joan Miro. I’ve developed a language of ambiguous shapes and marks that could be read as purely decorative, but on closer inspection suggests otherwise. As a collagist, I’m influenced by the Dada and Pop Art movements. There's also definitely a Punk aesthetic. I’m obsessed with lurid Day-Glo colours, and I’m trying not just to appropriate photographs, but often to annihilate them...
