This is me (Simon Speed) writing and producing music on my own and with my friends, particularly Jonathon Harflett (formerly of Dawnwind).
Why this name?
It's my Wikipedia logon:-)
Do you play live?
I sometimes sing and strum at my local folk club and even the occasional open mic night. I've even taken to busking now and then in Bedford town centre :-)))
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It started by opening everything up, but to such an extent that there was too much chaff needing to be winnowed out. The listener is now left with very little choice but to seek out what they already know, or worse, the most popular material. If the popular was originally popular for being good that would be fine, but as the listener seeks only the popular this creates a self feeding monster, a bunch of celebrities who are famous just for being famous.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
When these existed, everybody did, if they could. I doubt anyone would have been interested in me even if they had a very long bargepole to hand.
Band History:
I'm a computer programmer and EFL teacher. Some years ago my friends Angie and Jonathon started teaching me to play the guitar. Then I asked Jonathon if I could try setting one of his lyrics to music.
