Mim became one of the leading artist’s agents in music and film in London from the 60s onwards. He put together director and talent for the film Sympathy for the Devil for producer Michael Pearson’s company Cupid Productions. Mim then set out for Morocco in search of the roots of Blues music, a trip he’d planned to undertake with his friend Brian Jones, before the legendary musician passed away. Michael and Cupid went on to produce the classic car-chase movie Vanishing Point, an iconic piece of Noir somehow pure in its portrayal of a modern driven but also random world.
An extraordinary new mix – Symphonic – from Deep Forest. Also a full length interview with Eric Mouquet, of the Grammy Award winning Deep Forest Project.
He talks about the recording and production process, some new orchestral installation and film work, as well as the wildest situation he’s ever gotten himself into on location.
Tim plays Gothic Blues, his own form of raw and brutally honest music. He has a rare and immediate voice which he accompanies mostly only with a 12 string played with a sizzling slide. Tim Scott McConnell’s interview takes us from the deep south where, after he grew up in a trailer park, he played in local bands before leaving for New York and creating the house band at CBGB with a member of the New York Dolls. He was signed to Island and a number of other major record labels. Bruce Springsteen is a fan and popularised one of his songs, ‘High Hopes’. Tim lives in Norway and has a new record out called ‘White Crow’, under his artist name, Ledfoot.
Jon Green – songwriter and producer with Universal Music. He has written and produced for Linkin Park, Paloma Faith, Kylie Minogue, James Bay, Lola Lennox and recently scored his first Country Music No.1 hit. Jon splits his time between the UK and Nashville. He talks about getting sent to meet artists and breaks down the often time-limited songwriting and development process.
Interview with singer songwriter Lola Lennox. Lola is releasing her debut single, ‘In The Wild’, in early February of this year, 2020. A phenomenally talented singer and songwriter working with innovative producers and co-writers, both in London and L.A., notably Jon Green. Lola is the daughter of Annie Lennox. However, I suspect that soon enough she’ll be recognised as an artistic force in her own right.
