Okay, let’s get into the Ten questions for The Ennrons!
𝟭. 𝗪𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗵𝗼𝗯𝗯𝘆? I'm originally from the UK and making music and a podcast is pretty much my hobby although it's in danger of becoming a full-time job.
𝟮. 𝗛𝗼𝘄 𝗱𝗶𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗴𝗲𝘁 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗼 𝗠𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗰/𝗠𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗰 𝗣𝗿𝗼𝗱𝘂𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻? I always loved music, from listening to LPs at home, there was always music. I sang in the school choir, got into playing guitar at Uni and joined a barbershop quartet, before leaving to front a rock band and busk on the streets of Europe.
𝟯. 𝗪𝗵𝗼 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗯𝗶𝗴𝗴𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝗶𝗻𝗳𝗹𝘂𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲𝘀?
Apart from the Beatles, my biggest influences at the moment aren't musical, but two podcasts and a YouTube channel. The first podcast is called Your band sucks (at business) and is hosted by two musicians talking about the business of running a band, how to make sure that you achieve your goals and set things up professionally. The second is a music podcast called Strong Songs in which the host analyses songs to find out what makes them great. The level of detail is astounding and the host is a professional musician. It's just so inspiring to see how great artists and composers add depth and hooks to their music. The YouTube channel is MUSformation and is about how to grow your fan base through effective use of social media.
𝟰. 𝗪𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝗱𝗶𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗯𝗲𝗴𝗶𝗻 𝗺𝗮𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗺𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗰? I can't remember a time when I wasn't making music, but The Ennrons is the first time I have released music to the public.
𝟱. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗴𝗼𝗮𝗹𝘀 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗺𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗰 𝗶𝗻𝗱𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗿𝘆? My goal is to be able to earn a living in the music industry with a combination of releasing music, growing my mixing and mastering service and getting support for the podcast through subscriber platforms (Patreon etc)
𝟲. 𝗜𝗳 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗰𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝗰𝗵𝗼𝗼𝘀𝗲 𝗮 𝗹𝗼𝗰𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗼 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗺 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝘄𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝗶𝘁 𝗯𝗲? Fairport’s Cropredy Convention - the best folk festival ever. Such a chill and friendly atmosphere and the level of musicianship is second-to-none.
𝟳. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲 𝗳𝗮𝘃𝗼𝘂𝗿𝗶𝘁𝗲 𝘀𝗼𝗻𝗴? Phantom of the Opera by Iron Maiden. The energy of the song is breathtaking, right from the start and the complexity of the guitar parts displays a level of virtuosity that is often overlooked by non-metal fans.
𝟴. 𝗠𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝗲𝗺𝗯𝗮𝗿𝗿𝗮𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗺𝗼𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁? The situation that comes to mind was when I was impersonating one of my lecturers at University and didn't notice that he was standing behind me, he having come into the lecture hall late.
𝟵. 𝗣𝗿𝗼𝘂𝗱𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝗔𝗰𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗶𝘀𝗵𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁?
My proudest accomplishment is getting my PhD. I was quite late starting it (at age 43) and it took me three and a half years to finish. I think I am proudest of the fact that I invited the world's foremost steel metallurgist to be an examiner and he was satisfied that my work merited a PhD.
𝟭𝟬. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗶𝘀𝘁 𝘄𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘄𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝘁𝗼 𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗹𝗮𝗯 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗶𝗳 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗰𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝗰𝗵𝗼𝗼𝘀𝗲? Jeff Lynne. I love everything he has done from ELO, to the Wilburys. He has produced songs for George Harrison, Tom Petty and Roy Orbison. It would be awesome to go on a musical journey, to find out how to tell the story we want to tell with our music and arrange killer tracks.
