Music

I’m a huge fan of music, and I collect vinyl too! Here are all of my music blog posts.

Flying Vinyl: An Alternative Record Subscription!

Flying Vinyl: An Alternative Record Subscription! I first heard of Flying Vinyl a few months ago in NME magazine, and I thought it was a brilliant idea. I forgot all about it, until I opened an email from them asking if I’d like to review November’s edition. Of course I squealed with excitement and quickly emailed back with a big YES. Flying Vinyl is a vinyl subscription service in which you receive a selection of the best new alternative music…

My Top 5 Music Experiences

I’m getting really into blogging about music again, so today I’m here with another music-related post. This time I’m sharing my top five music experiences with you, in collaboration with independent online music news magazine Get To The Front*. It was so hard to narrow my music experiences down to five, but here they are… in no particular order! 1. Singing on BBC Radio Devon – I’ve performed many times, including a Mozart aria at my school speech day (which…

The Changing Look of Music

You all probably know by now that I’m really into music, I studied music for A-Level, and I play the guitar and sing (I upload covers occasionally to YouTube… when I remember). I’m also interested in fashion, so I love looking at how fashion and music influence each other, and how an ‘image’ can be so important for musicians. Think of Elvis, David Bowie, The Beatles, Freddie Mercury, Madonna… their images are almost as famous as their music! This is…

My Vinyl Record Collection

I’ve been collecting vinyl for over a year now, and as my collection has recently surpassed 50 records, I thought I’d take some pictures to show you all on my blog! It took quite a while to lay them all out on my bed (and even longer to put them away), but it was totally worth it because the pictures look cool. You can generally see most of my collection in the pictures, but generally I have a lot of…

I MET MELANIE MARTINEZ & WENT TO HER CONCERT!

Okay, I can’t really contain my excitement about this blog post. On Friday 6th May, I got to meet Melanie Martinez at her album signing in HMV at Westfield Shepherd’s Bush. She was so lovely and friendly, and she said she loved my denim jacket! (the one with all the patches on it that I blogged about a while ago).  Not only did I get to meet her and get a signed copy of a special edition of her album…

My Vinyl Record Collection

I’ve been collecting vinyl for over a year now, and my collection has gotten pretty big. I have a lot of Elvis, The Beatles, Nirvana, and recently I’ve been getting some more modern stuff too, like the Arctic Monkeys.As a musician, and music-lover, I can honestly say that music sounds better on vinyl, and collecting my favourites on vinyl has become a bit of an addiction. My wishlist is ever-growing, (I still don’t have any Lana Del Rey!), but I…

Weekly Vlogging & a new cover?!

You may or may not know that I’ve uploaded a couple of acoustic guitar / singing covers to YouTube… it’s been really fun so far and everyone has been lovely, so I decided to start vlogging weekly, and make a few other types of videos on my new second channel. The idea for vlogging stems from the fact that I’m living away from home in London, and my boyfriend is in California until June. I have a group of lovely friends, but…
