Ok, so technically it is not a new month until tomorrow but I just haven’t got the patience to wait to let you all know what I have been up to this past while.
Pop On Down is like my new baby, I have been thinking about blogging for a while now and this is what it has resulted in, a blog based primarily on music news, new artists (and old of course), reviews, interviews and more. Think of it as your one-stop shop for all your music needs.
So I know you are all wondering, where did the name come from? Pop On Down was decided from sitting around the kitchen table with a cup of tea, laptop infront of me and people throwing ideas around for a great name which was both relaxed as well as representative of what I was going to do. Almost instantly the suggestion was thrown out that we all love a good cup of tea, a chat and hanging out. We all ‘pop on down’ to our parents and friends to discuss the latest news or gossip about whatever we saw on Facebook this week so it fits quite nicely I think. The name also lends itself well to the gig goers among us who are constantly ‘popping on down’ to local and big name gigs.
So why music you ask? Well, why not I say. I have always been a big pop music fan and I am not afraid to admit it. My parents will tell you, I never watched a cartoon as a child, I always just wanted MTV on in the morning and I would be happy. At the age of 3, I was at a Take That concert dancing in the aisles, singing every word and enjoying every minute of it.
Apart from loving listening to music, I have delved into the pop industry in the past as well as the broadcasting and journalism side of things as well. I am not saying I am the Lord of Music or that I know the ins and outs of pop or anything like that really but I do know a good song when I hear it and I am not too bad at writing a few lines either.
Pop On Down will not only bring you the big names in music but we also want to promote new artists from around the world with our artist interviews, reviews and gig guide.
So, now that I have introduced myself and you know a little bit about me and Pop On Down, I really hope you will find my blog interesting and enjoy it as much as I enjoy writing it.
Come on and Pop On Down,
