Hey friends, Gemma here.
It’s with a heavy heart that I write that I will be stepping down as Casual Band Blogger’s co-editor. For three years I have been doing cool stuff alongside Rochelle to get great stuff up on here, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything, but it has inevitably come to a point where my other music projects require more and more attention, so I have to say goodbye.
Being at CBB has meant I’ve discovered some of my now favourite musicians, made some of my best friends and been able to work with some people I really respect. A thanks has to go out to my co-editor Rochelle Flack, who does a tonne of work that no-one even realises but keeps all of this afloat, and our news editor Angela Christian-Wilkes who is a genuine legend. Gotta also make note of all of our contributors over the time I’ve been at CBB- everyone here works for free, donating their time and effort to be involved in something bigger and to promote local acts- which has always been the goal of Casual Band Blogger.
If you want to keep an eye on where I’m headed, check out my stuff at Riot Expert where I’m managing bands and running a little record label. There are big things in the works over there, especially for my acts RKDA and Aeora so check them out.
Thanks for supporting CBB, and please continue to do so because Rochelle, Ange and the team are going to keep doing great stuff.
