We are fortunate to have had much of our work reviewed by David Morrison. David is a music industry veteran boasting wide-ranging experience spanning five decades. Music is more a lifestyle than career for Dave, who is in some way engaged with music and its industry every single day of his life. He promoted over 300 shows in the UK, hosted radio shows both there and in Canada, and has worked in music retail since he was a teenager. For almost twenty years Dave has written about music for magazines the world over, and as such has been viewed as something of a tastemaker and passionate authority on the huge spectrum of music he loves. As a former A&R man, band manager and consultant he has worked very closely with, for and alongside musicians around the globe.
