2019... / by francine gorman

The new year is upon us, so here’s a brief glance back at 2018!

About to enter my third year of freelancing, and feeling extremely fortunate to have had the chance to work with such great partners and clients over the past 2 years. Honoured to be taking the Ja Ja Ja London and Berlin nights into their 10th and 5th years, respectively, and looking forward to producing some very special events to mark these anniversaries.


Also very happy to have had such great opportunities and experiences through the Keychange project over the past 12 months, which is embarking upon another year of encouraging progressive change regarding gender equality in the music industry. And thanks to Deezer for the continued support and opportunities too, especially to Chris Baughen - good luck with your future endeavours!

Finally, big thanks to Daniel, Erica, Andy and Anna for their collaboration on this year’s Sørveiv Music Summit. It’s always a (very cold) treat to spend a week in Kristiansand with such bright, driven folks. I’m immensely proud of the conversations that were started and continued at this year’s event, and hope that we set up some solid foundations for future editions.

2019 will see a bit of a change around in the projects I’m working on, as I modify my schedule to be able to fit in some well overdue writing time. That said, i’m always looking out for new projects to jump on board with, so please don’t hesitate to reach out with any ideas - contact details are here!

Happy new year and looking forward to seeing everyone in 2019!
