Welcome to episode 181 of Erk FM, Erk’s music podcast featuring a wide range of podsafe & independent music from across the world.
This week’s episode was recorded in the Pillar of Hercules hotel in London and is an interview with guitarist Matt Stevens. The last time that Erk interviewed Matt via Skype (Erk FM episode 70), Matt was having severe health issues that severely restricted his movement.
Fast forward 12 months and Matt is in good health & chatting quite freely to Erk in a pub about his music, promotion over the internet & a lot more. Is it hard for a solo guitarist who doesn’t sing to get a gig in a pub? Is paying to play a good idea? Listen & find out the answers to these questions and more.
As an exclusive for this episode, Matt introduces a new song for Erk FM, Rushden Fair.
