FIFTY3 FRIDAYS: HAPPY NEW YEAR


To recognise the arrival of yet another new year, may I wish you all a peaceful and fruitful 2023, though after the 12 months we have just had it is difficult to approach it with any positivity, especially while an alternate reality persists in Russia and indeed in many places around the world.


Fifty3 Fridays was absent on 30 December and is taking a break for personal reasons. We hope to return on Friday 13 January.


FIFTY3 champions
outstanding new music through Fifty3 Fridays and occasional features. 

 

Music is a great passion of mine. In my teenage years I was an avid record collector and concert goer. Stints as a booking agent, running folk clubs, promoting gigs and even a crack at artiste management followed. While it never became my main occupation, music was always on my personal radar.

 

Over the past 13 years I have written for the leading US music website Consequence and  for the  breakthrough artiste site,  site, BestNewBands. I am a judge for Glastonbury Festival's Emerging Talent Competition and have reviewed the festival for both sites. I am now pleased to curate my very own music site.

 

Nothing gives me greater pleasure than unearthing good, original new music and championing independent musicians. You’ll find many of them on this site alongside the occasional legend of times past and I hope they will bring  you as much joy as they give me.
