Jess Campbell - Producer MCR Live
Graduating from Cardiff University last year with a degree in English Literature is not something I had ever seen myself doing so it's not surprise that throughout I became heavily involved with student radio and events work - where my true passions lie. Though I haven't grown in a family involved in the scene, I've had a passion for music for as long as I can remember and I was always the first person to scout out new bands so writing for various music blogs from the age of 16 to now has been a natural progression.
From putting on monthly gigs across Cardiff for two years, a one-day festival and presenting the SRA Selector as one of 6 UK students in 2016 to interviewing bands like Bastille for BBC Introducing across the summer festival season, DJing at various events including Swn Festival and talking on panels for Indie Week to The Big Music Project it's pretty fair to say that my life revolves around the scene. Fast forward to now, as the Head Of Music for MCR Live (Manchester's newest station, podcast and content network), I curate all the playlists and music content and continue to have my finger on the pulse regarding the best upcoming bands about and featuring music that needs to be heard - no matter how big or small, good music will always be at the top of my list.
