You can read part one here if you haven’t done so already. If you have, here’s Burt – exposed – a bit more! Woop…
4.) You also run the Sam Isaac street team – what happens, and how do people get involved?
Well we’ve tried to make it all about real fans helping promote the music in any way they can and getting rewarded for it, from sticking a poster up in their school/college to playing tracks on Uni radio stations. If a few people tell a few more people about an artist it can snowball and help people hear about them who might not have done previously. If you get me? Get involved by going to myspace.com/samisaacstreetteam and filling in a quick form. You’ll get pleasant emails occasionally letting you know about how you can help.
5.) Any artists you’d like to recommend that we should listen to immediately?
I’d have to say a guy I met up in Manchester while at Uni there named John Elliott. Check him out at myspace.com/meandjohndotcom (pictured). He writes amazingly intimate Buckley-esque songs which make me really happy. If you’re not into that then listen to Stars, the Cinematic Underground and Peter Broderick.
Fine words – thanks Burt… Hear him in action here
