“New Music That You Just Don’t Hear Anywhere Else!”
The After Eight Show started in January, 2014. It took us about six months for us to discover what our show should be about but, ever since deciding that it should be ‘New Music That You Just Don’t Hear Anywhere Else!’, we haven’t looked back.
It is an eclectic mix of (mostly) new music by unsigned artists, artists and bands who are starting out and building their fanbases, or in some cases playing kinds of music that do not get them included in the narrow playlists of the big commercial and public service radio stations.
Our ambition is that, in the course of our 2 hour show, you will discover 3, 4 or 5 artists or bands whose names you don’t know at the start but whose music you will want to go away and explore after our show has finished. At the end of each show, we invite musicians to send us links to their music and we listen to everything that’s sent in and we play it if we like it.
Typically, during a 2 hour show, you will hear some electro pop, rnb, blues, jazz, acoustic and world music - always melodic, always innovative, always interesting.
