I intended to cover industry events in the UK and Europe in 2020 on TGTF. However, given the unexpected event cancellations and the inability to travel after late February 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the only new content in 2020 that was posted to TGTF were a preview and subsequent review coverage of the conference and music festival at Output Belfast 2020. In mid-February 2021, a year on since the first lockdowns began, I wrote this blog post here on how I see the music industry must evolve from its current state, and with swift action at a regional, grassroots level. Without significant funding from governments, major record labels, and streaming services, this evolution seems to me the only way that popular music will survive as a viable business and one that will continue to employ musicians and all manner of technical support positions.
I’m convinced the stork dropped me off in the wrong country. Although I am American by birth and Chinese by ancestry, I adore England, Scotland, Australia, and Ireland. I have strange, strong connections to Scotland and the North of England, especially with Glasgow, Liverpool, and Yorkshire. My heart aches while being away from my friends abroad and these beautiful places. I fully intend to return to them all as soon as humanly possible.
