If you could sum up your day in a couple of lines, what would you say?
Inspirational and eye-opening day which encouraged me to reset and reapply myself to some of the goals I’ve set armed with new information, new support, new friends and some valuable A&R feedback.
Was it what you were expecting?
In some ways it was what I was expecting as I’ve been to a WAL event before, but I think I had a lot more take-aways from this event than previously – possibly because my production has improved since the last event I attended and so the track feedback and production session was more useful, but also the talks felt very relevant and pitched at a really good level for me.
Did you enjoy it?
I’m delighted I came!
I don’t think there’s anything to improve on. The format of the day worked really well. Loved having the A&R session first and getting a feel for everyone’s sound at the start of the day (as well as getting the nerves of having my track listened to out of the way!). There was also a good mixture of talks and production focus. Personally I could have listened to D Ramirez for another few hours of production tips, although I wouldn’t want to cut short the evening of catching up with the girls and jumping on the decks.
