Promoter & Independent Label MD
Pittville always felt like more of a creative community than a University campus. Quite literally full of people who get excited about the arts!
Popular Music as a course has helped me realise my strengths and, in turn, develop them to a professional standard. Modules offered a chance to put ideas & techniques into practice, and work on projects that were both challenging and exciting. Along side the label I am involved with a number of live music events including ‘Flux’, an under 18s live music night which I run with two of the town’s most successful promoters. It may sound a little clichéd, but my time at the University of Gloucestershire has introduced me to people who I’m sure I’ll be in touch with for years to come on both a personal and professional level.
Rob has recently been on a European Tour with Steve Winwood as a drum technician, and continues to run the istartedthefire record label who now have a distribution deal with Proper Music.
