My 2018 Music Review

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

2018 has been a momentous year in so many ways, but for me musically … off the scale! So happy and lucky with my own music making exploits: joining and gigging with a great band The Postcards; gigging with my sister as Jan & George Glen; and recording and mixing a great CD for Rachel Edwards. Really lucky to have had all these things come together in one year … and manage to see and hear so many great artists …

Best Gigs –

My Gig of the Year award simply has to go to Susanne Sundfør at the Barbican in May. Unforgettably perfect … I still have to pinch myself to believe I was there and right in front. Sublime.

I was lucky also to witness some other really special occasions –

Best Albums

Very few notable albums to mention really this year for some reason. Enjoyed Ruins by First Aid Kit, Great Aspirations by TC&I and lately Lamp Lit Prose by Dirty Projectors, but nothing earth shattering.

Best New Discovered Artists

Again no earth shattering new discoveries either (if you exclude The Postcards ! ) Loma, Trembling Bells, Screaming Females and St Martiins are worth a mention.

Here’s to a great 2019 for all of us. It’s guaranteed to be ‘interesting’!
