Supporting artists during lockdown

   

If your spine tingled to the introductory music to the BBC drama Strike (click here) you’re a Beth Rowley fan. She comes from my birthtown, Bristol, and has released two albums. I think she’s right up there with Adele and Amy Winehouse. But it was through Strike that I discovered her. Normally I’d have played her on Spotify and checked if she ever performed near Nottingham. But she won’t be touring now.

Until streaming came along, musicians used to make most of their money from LP & CD sales. Then live performance took over, surely a good thing.  Now that has stopped we need to go back to buying CDs. Her latest Gota Fria is £11.99 on Amazon, and an extra 95p on her own website. I love Amazon but they are doing well out of lockdown. I still have a job and less to spend my money on, so the latter it was (click here).

It’s a wonderful record. Time to buy Little Dreamer.
