So I have a SoundCloud profile. Never thought I’d have the guts to get one, let alone blog about it, but here we are. It all started after a chance conversation following my weekly drama class. My classmate Danny and I were chatting on the way to the tube, and he casually let slip that he was a music producer. As you do.
Naturally I wanted to hear more about his job, (much as I love copywriting it doesn’t quite have the same cachet). And, as I expected, his role is pretty awesome. I quizzed him for some time, excited to hear about the ins and outs of the music production industry and his guitar playing career. Then he asked if I played music. I answered yes, I was a keen sax player and singer at school and university, but have lost touch with it recently.
We both joined the drama class as a challenge. I enjoy it immensely, but it also really does scare me. So Danny challenged me to record some songs and get back into music. And I’m really glad he did. I’m not a huge fan of sharing my work, but I’m trying to get better at being more open. An introvert masquerading as an extrovert as it were. So here are a few things I’ve been working on:
Well I’ve shared more than enough for one day. If you want to check out some of my other tunes, head here: soundcloud.com/elliejh-2 And if you don’t then that’s fine too.
