I started the business in 1997 and still spend any money we make on continually buying more stock than we can fit on the shelves!! I am passionate about music in general and can’t imagine doing any other job. My personal music faves are anything by Mott the Hoople and Bill Fay and I have a guilty pleasure for electronic/synths
After working in Mental Health as an Art Therapist for many years, I now find myself managing our Warminster Store!! This is probably because I married the owner!! I have learnt a great deal about music and my interests vary, they range from Tom Robinson (I was an original member of the Castaway club) to Jeff Buckley. My two children have now also discovered vinyl, which is great!!!
Discovering new music from up & coming artists is something I enjoy immensely, and I try to support new artists as much as possible, whether it be buying their releases, or catching them live at a show.
I have often edged toward the indie & electronica scene, with favourites such as Radiohead & LCD Soundsystem, but have recently been trying to expand into new areas.
I joined the Raves team about 2 and a half years ago. After gaining experience as a touring musician, a back line technician and other positions in the music industry its been a joy to change pace. Not to mention now working for such a well established and respected record store.
My music tastes range from MF DOOM to Jane’s Addiction and everything in between.
