#MusicalizeManorParty S2 coming soon... 🔊🏡🕺🏾(🎥 @skyeboy101 [Link in bio to register for updates]
3 years ago I woke up to this image on @50cent’s Instagram from our @musicalizeuk concert at @theo2london the night before. That night was incredible for so many different reasons (I should probably talk about it all in more detail one day). I’ve been reflecting a lot on that time period over the last few days and it’s given me a renewed sense of drive. Can’t wait to be back in the arena very soon..
2 more days till @therealfaithevans UK tour kicks off. Looking forward to these shows. @iamricardowilliams @iamjoeyjames and @djace on support
S/o to the homie @not3sofficial on the new EP #TakeNot3sII. It’s crazy to think how much music this guy has put out or featured on over the last year or so and the way that he’s cementing himself as one of the most exciting artists in the UK music scene right now is very exciting to watch. The joke is it genuinely feels like he’s just getting started!
This is why @justintimberlake is such a g! England game being shown before his concert inside the arena tomorrow evening #ItsComingHome 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿⚽️
The moment @stormzyofficial stopped his #MerkyFestival headline set at @ibizarocks to watch England win the penalty shootout and then went straight into ‘Big For Your Boots’. WHAT A LEGEND!🔥💥🔥💥 #ItsComingHome
I can’t believe something so beautiful only took me 60 seconds to make 🙌🏾
Looking forward to this one on Friday. @TPain at @kokocamden w/ support from @compozers @flohio_ & @djace. Who’s coming down?
History was made last night. @afrorepublik at @theo2london. @wizkidayo has promised us #AfroRepublik 2019. Watch this space!
I don’t ever use this word at all but @ibizarocks on 2/3 July is going l to be very lit! 💥🔥 #MerkyFestival2018
It’s crazy to think that a conversation that @sophie_k_a and I had 7yrs and 2 months ago that went along the lines of “how hard can it be to put on a decent live music event” would end up with us launching @MusicalizeUK 7 years ago today 😳. The last 7 years have been some of the craziest, stressful and exciting times (often all at once). Turning a hobby into a business is no easy task and I’d be lying if I said over the years I hadn’t had moments where I just wanted to pack it all in and in recent times become a stay at home Dad. But there’s just something about live music and events that has a special place in my heart and nothing beats that feeling of watching an artist come out on stage and connect with their fans / audience. So much has changed in the live music scene since we started out and I think the biggest challenge we now face is to adapt to those changes and make really smart decisions but we’re ready and very excited for what the future of this company looks like. We’ll still be doing lots of concerts but we’ll also be doing lots of other bespoke events too under a new event management arm of the business. We’re open for partnerships and collaborations so if there’s anything you think we can work on together please get in touch. All that’s left for me to say is a HUGE thank you to all the artists, DJ’s, managers, agents, venues and all their staff , ticket companies, our incredible team for working with us to put on some incredible shows and most importantly to the fans and anyone who has ever bought a ticket for one of our events for being a part of the 1st 7 years of our journey. Here’s to the next 7 and beyond! 🍾🍾🍾 [Swipe right to see some of my fave shows]
Almost 7yrs ago on a random night out in Paris after a @teddysphotos gig I was introduced to @annemarie by @stuartcamp73. He told me she was an incredible singer that was going to be a star one day. (Note to self: Stuart is always right!) Over the years it’s been amazing to watch her grow as an artist putting out solo material, touring the world with @rudimentaluk, the countless collaborations (that’s she’s nailed EVERY SINGLE TIME) and then more recently having the spotlight fully on her as a solo artist. Today her debut album #SpeakYourMind is out and I’m genuinely so proud of her. What I love the most about this is that sometimes artists get sold dreams of overnight success but when you know first hand of an artist that has been grafting and grinding for 7+ years then I think it just reinforces that this music game isn’t easy but with hard work, consistency and of course talent you can achieve incredible things! Also I love that whenever I see her (which isn’t often these days because she’s an international jetsetter now 😂) she’s the same humble and quirky character from that random night out in Paris 7yrs ago. Well done to you and your team on the album and all the success so far and long may it continue AM! ❤️
