BBC Introducing Guernsey: February 2013 – The Get Down and Matt Ward

BBC Guernsey studioFor the second BBC Introducing Guernsey show of 2013 I was joined by three of the guys who help organise, run and participate in The Get Down events and we had an acoustic session from Matt Ward.

The Get Down have been staging nights for a number of years spanning genres but largely focussing on things associated with hip-hop and funk (and their myriad offshoots) they have their first live event of 2013 coming up next week at The Fermain Tavern and DJ Oneofakind, Woody (aka Sterone1) and Mi$ta told me all about it.

Matt Ward has been playing in bands for quite some time but has recently began life as a solo acoustic performer. With a regular gig as host of the open mic nights at the De La Rue he has started to gain a name for himself on Guernsey’s music scene and he played 5 original songs for the show.

I also aired an interview from Oliver Wade who has the ambitious plan of forming his own record label in Guernsey, ATOS Music.

Anyway, enough ramble from me, you can listen to the show by clicking here, and here is the tracklist:
