I run a website for booking musicians for events, such as weddings and corporate events. We have around 1000 musicians based in the UK and around Europe. We put them in contact with people, event planners, wedding couples, who are looking for live musicians for their events.

How do you take your tea/coffee?

I usually drink my coffee with oat milk. My favourite kind is a dirty chai latte; dirty because it has a shot of espresso in it.

What’s your favourite Waltham Forest hangout?

I live in Upton Park, but I only moved to the area about a month ago, so that’s a hard one to answer. Dorothée recommended a place around the corner, Luna. They have good live music there so that’s on my list to try.

Tell us the story so far…

I run a website for booking musicians for events, such as weddings and corporate events. We have around 1000 musicians based in the UK and around Europe. We put them in contact with people, event planners, wedding couples, who are looking for live musicians for their events. I’ve been doing it for about two and a half years. Before I started the business, I was a lawyer, but I wanted to break out and do something of my own. I’ve also been a musician all my life and it’s what I studied at university, so I wanted to start something that made use of that knowledge and skill. A couple of friends and I came up with the idea and it started from there. We’re still growing which is good. It’s all online connecting people, so it doesn’t really matter where the musicians and the clients are. We have musicians based all over the place and we have some musicians in the UK who do a lot of travelling.

Where will you be This Time Next Year?

I suppose, pretty much doing the same thing, but a lot more of it. Possibly with a bigger team; at the moment it’s me and one other person full time as well as a part time, freelance coder. At some point in the next year we’ll probably want to hire our first person, otherwise, continuing to grow the number of musicians we have. Just trying to be as big as possible really!
