What's Your Story?
As part of my "Isolation" project, I am collecting stories and experiences of people during the worldwide pandemic. Would you like to be involved? Then simply click on the chatbot below and answer a few (funny) questions and you could be in with a chance of winning some cool prizes from me 🙂
What is the "Isolation" Project?
I'm glad you asked! The project started at the very beginning of the pandemic. I had just returned from a wonderful working holiday in New Zealand to find myself in lockdown and all of my gigs cancelled. Of course I felt like crap for a while, but I soon realised that there were people out there in far worse situations than me and that I as a musician had the ability to do something positive about it. This started with the song pandemic-inspired "Isolation", but it soon grew into doing a series of free online concerts for people to tune in and enjoy. But this wasn't enough - I wanted to do more - and so the "Isolation" podcast was born.
Why a podcast?
I knew even before I started that there would be a lot of people out there who, like me, had been badly affected by the pandemic, and so doing a podcast seemed a small but natural step. At first I thought it would be helpful as a form of catharsis for people to simply talk about their experiences and, in the process, try and make sense of what had happened. After all, it's the first time in over 100 years that something like this has affected the human race. My hope is that, by listening to other people's stories, the listener will go away feeling better and just that little bit more connected to their fellow humans.
Can I be interviewed?
Of course you can! Just get in touch using the email address on my "contact" page of this website. I look forward to hearing from you 🙂
