sheer_isolation_85_-_nina_casey_purple_noise On this week's Sheer Isolation we talk to the Frome DJ Nina Casey (aka Nina LoVe) about her new project to boost interest in learning new music skills.
Purple Noise offers workshops and advice to provide experience working in studios, producing music, and lessons in live DJing.
They have a fully kitted out recording and rehearsal space in Trowbridge Town Hall and opens its doors to everyone. They especially want to help kids with learning difficulties or those who don't have access to music studios through their own schools.
Nina tells us about her path to becoming a DJ, and how the disruption of Covid was a catalyst for forming the Purple Noise project.
Her music choice is an uplifting Beverly Knight track that helped her during the lockdowns, while Kieran picks a post hardcore track from the duo, Frauds, who are coming to Wiltshire for a show in the Spring.
We also give a shout out to some of the week's music and comedy events in the region.

Sheer Isolation 84 - Dawn Dines (StopTopps) We're tackling the often-taboo subject of drink spiking on this week's Sheer Isolation.
Dawn Dines is the founder of Stamp Out Spiking and is also the inventor of StopTopps - a foil topper that can be stuck to drinks cans and bottles to help prevent clubbers becoming another victim.
Off the back of recent local and national news stories on the subject, Dawn has presented her case to politicians in Westminster as she continues her campaign to have spiking recognised as a separate crime.

If you need support or more information on what is covered in this week's episode, visit https://stampoutspiking.org/

Two throwbacks for our music choices this week. Dawn goes back to the seventies with one of her favourites from X-Ray Spex, and Jon picks a tune from the archive of Ben Marwood - a songwriter who's playing in Bristol next week.
We also have a positive discussion about this summer's festival season, and how stand up comedy appears to be bouncing back quicker than music gigs in the region.

Sheer Isolation 82 - John Parker On Sheer Isolation this week we're joined by a musician, teacher and promoter who's been a consistent part of Cirencester's music scene for four decades.
John Parker talks about forming his first college bands in the eighties, his cheeky way of booking gigs in unsuspecting pubs, and how musicians used to get their sound heard before social media.
We also talk about the Cirencester School of Rock which John ran for several years with Swindon drummer, Tim Downes-Hall. The school quickly became a pedestal for spotting young, talented artists in the south Cotswolds.
On the music menu, John picks a track from upcoming Cirencester songwriter, Joe Gardiner, and Kieran chooses some post-punk from Bristol's Slagheap.
In the news, we look over the recent changes to Covid precaution requirements in England, and what that means for venues continuing to host live music over the festive period.

As well as being a musical artist with Dorset rockers, Weatherstate, he also dabbles in graphic design - especially creating artwork for gig posters.
Callan tells us how he went into art design professionally for a whole month, that Weatherstate are now signed and have a new album on the way, and why you can often find him at the UK's third best burger restaurant.
Music choices this week are Wiltshire's indie band, Borts, and songwriter Katherine Priddy who is currently on tour in the region.

Sheer Isolation 80 - Jaime Bullock (Magic Torch) This week's guest on Sheer Isolation has dedicated her life to creating music videos for local artists, documenting art projects, helping Swindon's school-leavers on their first steps towards a career in media, as well as finding time to work on her own artwork, it's the founder of Magic Torch Productions, Jaime Bullock.
We talk to her about how having such a diverse range of skills means she gets to work with people from all walks of life, whether being commissioned to produce a documentary, or creating a Swindon Spiderman using nothing more than an old friend and some body paint.
She also works at the Swindon's Platform Project which gives advice to youngsters about choosing the right career path, and helping them to follow their passions in life.
For our music selection, Jaime picks a tune from the 80s as a tribute to friend, Levi Saunders, a musician who recently passed away.
We also play a post-classical piano piece from Larkhall, who is performing in Trowbridge this week.
In news, we note how there are no requirements to wear masks in crowded venues or nightclubs, even though this rule has just been re-enforced for shops and public transport in England.

Sheer Isolation 79 - Dominic Bailey-Clay (Nine Volt Leap) We're joined on this week's Sheer Isolation by the owner of the Nine Volt Leap recording studio in Melksham; Dominic Bailey-Clay.
His small team of friends created the town centre studio space from nothing, and he's now dealing with a steady stream of recording jobs from local and national artists alike.
Dominic tells us about the early days of their makeshift recording set-ups and questionable neighbours, some of his recording highlights, and talks about the band's he's been working with recently.
One of those bands is Bath based Byker Grove Fan Club - we play one of their tracks in the show. We also play a lively pub recording from 2013 of upbeat Swindon folk trio, Grubby Jack. We play this as a tribute to band member Levi Saunders who sadly passed away this week.
In news, Kieran announces a hefty Government grant for a venue in the centre of Trowbridge.

Sheer Isolation 78 - Florence Espeut-Nickless On this week's Sheer Isolation we're joined by actor, stage performer and writer, Flo Espeut-Nickless.

She created the show to dispel the stereotype that everyone in Wiltshire is wealthy and well spoken.
She's now in talks to adapt Destiny for TV, while also rehearsing for a festive play, Miracle on 34 Seymour Street, which you can see in Trowbridge over Christmas.
We play a track from Gavin Osborn; previous Sheer Isolation guest and is working with Flo on her next project.

Sheer Isolation 69 - Ben Parkes This week's guest on Sheer Isolation is going old-school to help share community successes across the centre of Wiltshire.
Ben Parkes is part of the team behind the newly launched Celebrate newspaper in Trowbridge.
The idea of the paper is to promote local events, share good news stories and encourage more people to make their home town a more cheery and friendly place.
We ask Ben why he's taken on this project, and what he sees are the advantages of promotion via a physical newspaper.
On the music menu, we play a brand new tune from Chippenham/Bristol fuzzy rock outfit, The Erotic Secrets of Pompeii, and Ben picks a family favourite during lockdown... a single-take, quirky, sample and loop build-up from South African YouTube star, The Kiffness.

We've also thrown a couple of songs into the mix; We have a new release from Bristol based songwriter, Onika Venus, and also a tune from the grandmaster of agricultural hiphop, Corky, who has just been announced as support for The Wurzels on their upcoming tour of the West later this year.

Bird Songs For The Most Dedicated Bird Watchers Audio Intro We've all heard bird songs in nature and our backyard, but how many do you recognize? Listen to these bird sounds and see how many you're able to identify.
Sheer Isolation 66 - Nick Reed (Trowbridge Festival) The Trowbridge Village Pump Festival has been a regular event on the summer calendar for decades, but in more recent years the musical line-up took a different turn, a new site meant the festival moved away from it's home town, and the organisers eventually called it a day.
But after a successful one-off event in 2018, our guest this week has plans to revitalise the festival and bring it back to its former glory.
Nick Reed has been a part of the festival since the eighties, from a child attending with his parents, to working backstage, and now taking a top seat in planning the 2022 event.
He tells us about the festival's history, why it disappeared off the calendar, and how work is already underway for a weekend event next year.
On the music menu, Nick chooses a track from traditional folk group Gigspanner, featuring Steeleye Span's Peter Knight. We also play a tune from south west based act Samantics, who is currently touring the UK with a previous guest on Sheer Isolation, Frank Turner.

Sheer Isolation 64 - Kirsty Clinch We are joined on this week's Sheer Isolation by Wiltshire's very own Kirsty Clinch.
Kirsty is a folk musician who has more recently turned her attention to creating songs for toddlers. Over lockdown she illustrated and authored a children's song book which links to a series of short music videos on YouTube that she also produced.
On top of this, she has also opened her own music school for young children with plans to expand into nurseries and village halls as more restrictions are eased.
And with an impressive 111,000+ Instagram followers, she's got plenty of support for her many projects, although we learn that having that many followers comes with its own challenges!
We play a couple of singer-songwriter tracks this week - one from Americana artist, Steve Hewitt, who will be playing in Trowbridge in August, and Kirsty's choice is a tune from UK based Texan, Arielle.
In the news, we look at new rules coming into force next month for nightclubs and large venues to reduce the spread of Covid.

Sheer Isolation 63 - Dan Greeves (Pegasus Music Management) After 63 episodes, this will be the last Sheer Isolation... to be recorded under Covid restrictions! Don't worry... we aren't ready to retire the show just yet!
This week our guest is Dan Greeves who has recently set up his own music management business and plans to offer an alternative way for acts to get their music heard.
The first band on the Pegasus books is Concrete Prairie; a folk act from Bristol, and he is looking for more untapped local talent to get in touch.
Dan tells us why he's chosen now to return to the music industry after a 20 year absence, and why he thinks there is a better way to promote and support performers in the music industry.
We play a tune from Concrete Prairie, as well as a song by Trowbridge based songwriter, Daisy Chapman.
And in news, we look ahead to the 19th of July when most Covid restrictions in England will be lifted. What does this mean for live music, and why is Government advice for nightclubs still muddying the waters?

Rose-Breasted Grosbeak With a bright red throat, white body, and black wings, the Rose-Breasted Grosbeak whistle their way through the trees.
American Robin The American Robin is perhaps the most recognizable bird song, at least, one many can recall.
Arctic Tern With a throaty call, it's hard to mistake the Arctic Tern for any other bird.
Eastern Bluebird With the male's bright blue plumage, the Eastern Bluebird is a favorite among bird-watchers. Additionally, its cheerful tone and unmistakable whistling make its sound iconic.
The Eastern Meadowlark The Eastern Meadowlark, a bird primarily known for the black mark on its chest as it flies. Its slightly melancholic and clear tune differentiate it from the Western Meadowlark.
Winter Wren at 1/4th Speed Once the Winter Wren's song is slowed down, the true musical nature of their song becomes evident. The Winter Wren is able to fit an entire song within a few seconds as they sing through the trees and the brush.
Winter Wren At normal speed, the song sounds like an unconnected series of high notes. The male Winter Wren will serenade a female in an attempt to build a nest and have nestlings.
Mowing Grass The sounds of a lawnmower are unparalleled. Few other sounds can signify the beginning of a leisurely summer morning, especially on the weekends. Listen and reminisce about the smell of freshly cut grass.
Firework Sounds Perhaps tied with New Year's, July features some spectacular fireworks shows. Listen to the thundering crackle of a dazzling display of pyrotechnics.
Chirping Birds Coupled With Wind Sounds If you live near a forest, these sounds may be familiar. Perhaps these sounds evoke a memory of running through the woods with no worries or cares, only thinking about where your adventures will take you next.
Crickets at Night Crickets always emerge when the sun starts to set and the stars start to appear. When the crickets began in earnest, it was time to wrap up a successful summer day and head home.
Sheer Isolation 62 - Sam Robinson (Sound Knowledge) On this week's Sheer Isolation we're joined by Sam Robinson, who's part of the team at Marlborough's CD & vinyl shop, Sound Knowledge.
As well as the retail side, Sound Knowledge is also known for putting on in-store gigs and has hosted the likes of Ed Sheeran and Everything Everything since the shop was founded in the '90s.
We talk about the resurgence of vinyl sales, how the pandemic has pushed them into online selling, and how Record Store Day has quickly become their busiest time of the year.
On the music menu, we play a track from William Doyle, previously known as East India Youth, who is another musician to play at Sound Knowledge.
We also play a tune from Bristol indie group, Parkas, who are playing in Swindon this week.

Sheer Isolation 61 - Jess Bradley We're joined by comic book illustrator, Jess Bradley, on this week's Sheer Isolation.
Jon's old classroom buddy from St. Joseph's in Swindon has gone on to bigger and better things, including having regular strips and stories published in the Beano and Phoenix.
It's a rare moment in our podcast's history where our guest has seen workload increase during lockdown, with more of us buying comics online to keep our kids and ourselves entertained during the pandemic.
Jess won a Blue Peter award for her last book, A Day In The Life of a Poo, a Gnu and You. We get her perspective of how publishers pick who to back, and consider the comparisons between illustrators such as herself, and grassroots musicians looking for a record deal.
Jess has sequels on the way for A Day In The Life, plus a new series of comics called Super Dweeb - available later this year in all good bookshops ;)
Our music choices this week include a gorgeous new acoustic melody from Bath based Luke De-Sciscio, and Jess chooses one of her favourites which helps the creative juices flow, courtesy of UK synthwave group, Gunship.
In the news, we look at how Wiltshire's WOMAD festival has been forced to cancel for a second year. Could the Government be doing more to give festivals a fighting chance this summer?

The project is being led by Sally Snail who has promoted grassroots dance, music and stage shows in Wiltshire for more than two decades through her Starry Eyes project.
She joins us on this week's Sheer Isolation to share her plans for the bandstand, how she hopes these events will bring communities back together after lockdown, and why she has chosen to fundraise for local Alzheimer's charities.
We also play two shiny new tunes... the first from Swindon three piece, All Ears Avow, and a song/poem combo from Wiltshire's own country star, Kirsty Clinch.
We also talk about how the Government's four week delay to easing restrictions has led to the cancellation of more music festivals, and how the difficulty getting events insurance is making matters worse.

Tom tells us about how he got to tell off Jeremy Clarkson for wanting to build a pond, and how that ended up featuring on the TV star's new Amazon Prime series; Clarkson's Farm.
He also talks about recording sounds in nature which he converts into samples to create songs, why he played 30 gigs in 30 days just before Covid arrived, why he's always accompanied by a toy badger and wolf hat, and why he played a gig to a field of cows.
Tunes this week include one of Tom's newest tunes, and we also play a track from indie acoustic songwriter, Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly.
In news, we discuss how the extended four week delay to restrictions has led to the cancellation of more local festivals, with one of Wiltshire's largest music weekends still hanging in the balance.

He had an incredible passion for live music and was a key player in promoting grassroots artists, as well as bringing internationally known acts into the town.

This community based recording and rehearsal studio offers support to teens through tutoring, reachout programmes, and giving young people a space to work together on musical projects.

Sheer Isolation 56 - Lorena Pino Montilla (Trowbridge Film Club) Our guest on this week's Sheer Isolation has made it her mission to bring minority communities together through music, singing, and now movies.
Lorena Pino Montilla moved from Venezuela to teach Spanish in Wiltshire, and has always looked for ways of reaching out to groups who may feel isolated due to language or religious barriers.
She talks about how the Trowbridge Song Project brought women together to share cultural and traditional music with each other.
Her latest project is working with Trowbridge Town Hall to screen films from around the globe, in a way that makes them accessible to as many people as possible.
On the music front we're playing a double helping of traditional folk. Representing the UK we have The Albion Band, and Lorena's choice is the C4 Trio from Venezuela.

Sheer Isolation 54 - Keith Hyett After more than a year of silence, the UK's grassroots musicians are starting to plan real-life events once again. Our guest on Sheer Isolation this week is flipping the perspective by encouraging communities in the West to put on events themselves, to help support seasoned singers, newbie performers and raise money for their village halls at the same time.
Keith Hyett's Re-connect project encourages communities to work together to create a place where we can spend time with our friends and neighbours post-lockdown, and enjoy food, drink and music at the same time.
We also discuss exciting developments at the Cheese & Grain in Frome, where you can find some of this year's Glastonbury line-up after the internationally renowned event was cancelled for the second year running.
In our music selection this week, we play one of Keith's instrumental compositions; our other track is a new release from the Bath based Longcoats.

Sheer Isolation 53 - Tracy Sullivan (Open Minds Mental Health) The past year has highlighted the need for mental health awareness across all sectors from big business to individuals.
On this week's Sheer Isolation we're joined by Tracy Sullivan from Open Minds Mental Health. She offers accessible training that helps us understand and better communicate with people who are struggling with depression and anxiety.
As we start to socialise again post-lockdown and get ready for live events to begin in a few weeks time, concerns about anxiety and mixing are high on a lot of people's minds.
Before starting this worthy cause, Tracy was behind the creation of Trowbridge Arts Centre.
Also in this week's show, Kieran announces exciting live music news with local gigs for Frank Turner and Salem, featuring Creeper frontman Will Gould.
Our tracks include the latest release from Salem in preparation for their UK tour, and Tracy picks a track from Bradford-on-Avon (now Brighton) four piece, Hum Fuzz.

Sheer Isolation 51 - Isha McIntosh (Life 2020) On this week's Sheer Isolation we're joined by Isha McIntosh from the Bristol based community project, Life 2020.
As well as helping with life skills, wellbeing and alternative learning, Life 2020 provides a platform to upcoming musicians by booking them to play at networking events.
With lockdown restrictions being lifted, the team are now planning to take these meet-ups out of Bristol, starting with a visit to Wiltshire this summer.
Isha tells us more about the non-for-profit group, and the importance of providing entrepreneurs in black and minority communities with the encouragement and motivation to chase their ambitions.
Music choices are as wide-ranging as ever... Isha picks a hip-hop track from PRZY, who performed at a previous Life 2020 event. We also share an indie-math instrumental rock track from Parachute For Gordo, who are planning a mini tour in the West this August.
We also consider a loophole in England's current lockdown rules which lets venues book outdoor music as long as they can prove punters aren't there to listen to the performance.

Sheer Isolation 50 - Jess Bennett (Trowbridge Town Hall) It won't be long until venues across the West come out of hibernation and start entertaining us again.
The team at Trowbridge Town Hall have used their time over lockdown to breathe fresh life into the building.
Our guest on this week's Sheer Isolation is Events Manager, Jess Bennett. She tells us about their new space for live music, new cinema room and their plans for showcasing live music and comedy later this year.
Our music choices this week include a new acoustic session recording of Bath based group, Young Martyrs, and Jess picks a live recording of rhythm & blues band, The Worried Men.
We also revisit the idea of vaccine passports for venues, and for the first time in 50 episodes we lose our link over Zoom.
