In case you missed it, this is Man v Music. “Where’s the origin story?” I hear you ask, well ask no further…
I took upon Man v Music about a year and a half ago now, as a means to explore and learn more about the music industry and what it has to offer to us – if anything – as musicians, fans and general consumers.

But I’m out to learn as much as I can about the music industry – before I deep dive into the music myself.
I’ve been told that learning together is the best way of sharing knowledge and understanding.
So delve in with me and learn from: insight with industry professionals, explore intriguing industry stories, learning and discovering new beginnings and endings in the industry, discover emerging and exciting talent, adapt from the industry struggles we delve into, and of course, keep up to date with the effects COVID-19 has had – and is having – on a daily basis, on the music industry.
So why don’t you join me in it all – and stay for the content if its good enough?
