Better Than The Book gets interviewed by Live A Little Bit Louder about "Two Years On" (Super exciting!), MusicLaunchSummit over, FREE "(Feels Like) Heaven [Jabun Hardcore Remix]" downloads for everyone + more!
It's been a super exciting and jam-packed week since I arrived back in Herne Bay on Monday and there's lots of amazing stuff to share! Most of my time has been spent attending the final lectures of MusicLaunchSummit which has been an amazing experience, and now I've 29 pages (double-sided) of notes to go through and learn from. It's a little overwhelming the amount of information I have at my fingertips to take in, but for now I'm concentrating on just a few things, which I've already planted the seeds for, and we'll see how everything goes from there! A MASSIVE thanks to Steve Palfreyman for organising the whole thing, and of course to all the speakers too who took the time to share their knowledge! I'm sure all their shared experience will be a great pointer in the right direction to take JabunAudio even further! Well, I guess that means it's back to normal work this coming week (gotta go find it first!). I have an AMAZING announcement as the main headline for this weeks news post, and it's been a while in the making so I shall delay no further. Let's get to it!
The main headline this week:
Better Than The Book has been interviewed by an independent web blog!
It's been a few months in the making due to busy schedules, summer holidays (the warped tour), and other factors but it's been a super fun project to work on and I've been dying to share this since we first started working on it! The blog is called "Live a Little Bit Louder", created by Megan who conducted the interview with me. Over the course of 9 questions, you'll get an in-depth view into the songwriting and production process behind "Two Years On", some background about me as a musician, hints at what's next for Better Than The Book, and some fun questions where you might see me struggle with some impulsive acronyms! Really hope you enjoy this FIRST EVER backstage look into BTTB, and thanks so much to Megan for reaching out, organising this and just being a super fun person to work with throughout the process! Check out Better Than The Book on Live A Little Bit Louder below:

And in case you've yet to hear the album which a lot of that interview is about, feel free to have a listen while you read to "Two Years On", Better Than The Book's debut full-length album:
Next and lastly on the news for this week, October has come and the results of the "(Feels Like) Heaven" remix contest are out! Unfortunately no prizes this time (Dang!), but now that the contest is over, I have permission to release the Jabun remix myself as a free download, so everyone wins! Feel free to grab a FREE DOWNLOAD of "(Feels Like) Heaven [Jabun Hardcore Remix] from SoundCloud and share it with as many people as you'd like! It's FREE!
That's it for this week! I hope you enjoy the BTTB interview and hey, if you're an blogger who'd like to interview me about anything, or even if you're anyone who wants to chat, feel free to leave a comment or send me an email and I'll be happy to! What's in store for next week? Well if I remember correctly, SOMEONE said that one of their targets for 2016 was to release a Jabun EP or Album by the end of the year... 3 months left. Chop Chop! Hint Hint! (I'll keep you updated). I'll also be working on putting some of these strategies learned from MusicLaunchSummit into action too so we'll see how that goes. By the way, one thing I've been meaning to put right for a while is to be more active on Twitter so feel free to give me a follow on @HurpADervish or @BTTB_UK and if you tweet to me, I'll follow you back! Hope to see you there and hope you all have a good week until the next update! Enjoy the music, take care, and thanks as always for supporting JabunAudio and all my projects! Peace!
