What role does music play in your day-to-day life as a creative?
I often find that listening to music is a tool that I can use to help me focus on a project that I’m working on, life can be so busy and hectic that you often need to close yourself off from distractions and be in your own bubble. I often struggle with focusing on one task and get distracted, or waylaid very easily by a dozen other things I’m thinking about or have happening, that music drowns all of that out, which is why I rely on it.
I typically listen to music that I know well when I’m working so that it is more of a background noise, usually that consists of 80’s & 90’s cheesy tracks like Snap! & Eurythmics, Kate Bush, that kind of thing.

As you can see from my tracklist I’m far from particular in my music taste, I’m very much a magpie for different sounds and decades, I think usually because I mostly listening to music when I’m busying doing something, I like high-energy sing along music. I never sit and listen to music to relax or recreationally, it’s a tool to energise me and separate me from outside distractions.
