Twenty years ago I created Popjustice which (briefly) became the UK’s biggest independent pop site and is now one of the world’s longest-running music blogs (mainly because I refuse to shut it down). Along the way there have been Popjustice books, club nights, live showcases, a record label (!) and compilation albums as well as curation for Apple Music and an In Residence series for Spotify. Take a look.
Media training, coaching and consulting
One of the most rewarding parts of my work is helping people become better popstars. This can take the form of media training and interview coaching or, increasingly, more longterm development work directly with the artist. Sometimes it’s working with managers and labels. More about that here. Separately if you’re a creative person (or a person who’d like to be) and you’re interested in life coaching, creativity coaching or simply a space to make sense of what you’re doing, drop me an email and I’ll tell you all about it: firstname.lastname@example.org.
My glorious content has appeared in places like the Guardian, Q (where I was a contributing editor), Vice, ES Magazine, NME (my Peter Robinson Versus column ran for nearly a decade), heat, GQ Style, BEAT, The Fader, i-D, The Observer, Stylist, The Times, Attitude, Pitchfork, Time Out, Smash Hits, Observer Music Monthly, The Face and Melody Maker. My words have also popped up in books, tour programmes and sleevenotes, in award-winning PR campaigns and on the TV. Have I ghostwritten books for people? I could not possibly comment. More info here.
