I'm a keen female musician who is looking to take on a career in live music events, festivals, management, production or PR. I believe that there should be more female representation in these areas of the music industry and I'm prepared to commit, get involved and work hard.
I currently work at the Watford Colosseum where I am responsible for Admin tasks and security at Stage door such as handling post, fire protocol, dealing with phone calls, meeting artists/performers and being available for assistance when needed, going through health and safety information.
I am working casual shifts with Soulshakers. I bar tend and serve coffee at venues such as Printworks, Tobacco docks and work at festivals such as Red Rooster and Blue Dot. My responsibilities include working at a fast pace at large capacity venues, making cocktails, attention to detail, using the till and ensuring any waste or issues with customers are noted and dealt with appropriately.
I was involved in working for the University of Liverpool Lunchtime Concert Series as part of a work experience module. Our team were responsible for transforming the performances into sell out occasions after previous years of low attendance and helped establish the concerts as a popular event within Liverpool’s cultural calendar. While working there I was responsible for working in a front of house and administrative role. This included greeting audience members of all ages, handling tickets, greeting, assisting and liaising with artists, arranging refreshments and liaising with site managers. I was also responsible for introducing the acts, going through formalities and delivering any notices about future concerts to the audience. My administrative roles included minute taking, planning meetings and sending emails. I gained experience in using software such as Microsoft Office and Google docs to create cost spreadsheets and to plan our bookings for each season. I also used social media platforms to help promote our events which developed my experience in using social media on a professional basis.
While studying at University I volunteered for both the 2015 and 2016 Sound City music festivals. Whilst working there I was responsible for assisting members of the public and attendees of the conferences as an artist runner. I was also responsible for the artist load in station for the day while working under that job role, for example greeting artists, determining which stage they were performing at and delegating jobs to volunteers to help assist artists with gear and directions to the stages on the site. As Artist Liaison I worked the liaison team on the main stage for artists such as The Dandy Warhols, Band of Skulls and Catfish and The Bottlemen. We were responsible for setting up performers dressing rooms along with their requirements from their riders and attending to any other needs of the performers before and after their sets.
