It’s going to be special having @imcathmcgrath play at our @london music night, #Stageside, tomorrow. If you’re one of the lucky ones with a ticket, you’re in for a treat. I took this shot of Catherine performing at a sold out @utatrootsfest night at the awesome Exeter Cathedral a couple of weeks ago. Stunning evening.
This week’s episode of Mainly Music podcast just dropped. I’m chatting about the Q Awards so play music from winners @liamgallagher, @stormzyofficial and @kasabianofficial. I’m still battling a cough but respite comes from award winning producer @sar_bishop who brings in American podsnacks. Also music from @pavesband and @bouncingsoulsnj.
One of my favourite portraits I’ve taken was of @sirkevinmax in Nashville at a coffee shop near his house . Kevin was (and still is) one of my musical/vocal inspirations so it was really cool to hang out . His voice is unrivalled. Those who know me, know how much of a huge Queen fan I am; something Kevin and I have in common. Check out his cover of ‘Save Me’ on YouTube .
Podcast update. I’m still wiped out and haven’t made it into the studio, so instead, I called in where Sarah was on hand to catch my Benylin infused ramblings. There’s conversation with @jacobyshaddix from @paparoach about rock and roll vs social media , tribute is paid to Tom Petty via a track from The Travelling Wilburys and there’s music from @donnamissal and Chris Isaak. Listen at www.mattspracklen.com or link in bio.
Here’s an example of why it’s called “Mainly Music”... It would mean so much to me if you’d subscribe to my podcast . The show focuses on the music I add to my #Spotify playlist and the stories behind them. Links to the podcast and playlist can be found at www.mattspracklen.com (link in bio) or simply search Mainly Music on whatever podcast app you use on iOS or Android. Shout out to @tomcert who designed the cover and has drawn in my producer, @sar_bishop to the season 2 artwork .
These guys have been setting light to stages all around the UK the past couple of weeks. Catch @bangbangromeo with @theshimmerband & @blackwaters_uk at The Electric Ballroom in Camden this coming Saturday. 3 of the best new bands in the country. It’ll be a killer night. @thisfeelinghq #AliveTour
On Thursday, I was kindly invited by the @britishfilminstitute to attend the premiere of #Mudbound. I walked the red carpet but also got into the media area in time to grab a word with lead role, @jasonmitchellactor. Fantastic, hard hitting film and wonderfully shot. Also stars @therealmaryjblige. // by @shootwithdan
Come one, come aalllll... Mainly Music season (series - whatever) 2 has begun. This week, @emelisande puts a song on my #Spotify playlist and we chat to @bransonsam at @sofarsounds. There’s music from @thestruts and @taylorswift, I cry in front of @gregoryportermusic AND I eat HEALTHY chocolate... Link in bio. X
So you probably saw I went to Antwerp in Belgium this week to hang out with @paparoach ahead of their show at #BrixtonAcademy this coming Tuesday (10th) on the #CrookedTeeth tour. Check out what @jacobyshaddix and I chatted about in this teaser clip of the night. Full interview will be on YouTube soon. See you in Brixton. #PapaRoach / by @lewypee
Gotta love a speeding bus photo. This is how I feel right now. I’ve got a crazy next 7 days. From London to Belgium to Sussex and back to London. From rock and roll shows to tv shows and from interviews with bands to wine tasting days. AND I need to record the next episode of Mainly Music. Might even squeeze in a red carpet appearance at a film premiere.🕴🏻 See my week unfold on Instagram Stories.
