Nominated for Salisbury Music Awards 2013
Saturday October 19th 2013 sees the event the Salisbury music scene has been gearing up to all year – the 2013 Salisbury Music Awards.
I am honoured to have once again been nominated in the ‘Best Solo Male Performer’ category, so be sure to visit the organiser’s website and take a peek at all the categories and nominations, and cast your votes – it’s quick and easy, and simply uses Facebook in an attempt to prevent spam voting.
How to place your vote:
As for the event itself, I will be performing at the Winchester Gate during the day, along with many of the acoustic act and solo nominees, then its all down to the Salisbury Arts Centre for a full evening’s entertainment as well as the award presentations.
David Waddington Joins Marland Music Management
After a performance at The Victoria in Swindon last year, I had the fortune to meet the remarkable woman who runs Marland Music Management. Ronnie Swift Laurie invited me to join her roster of incredibly talented songwriters and performers, and she has been instrumental in arranging many of the gigs I have been doing in and around the Devizes area. Ronnie has worked in the music industry for many years, and alongside many well known artists; her enthusiasm and dedication knows no boundaries!
Marland Music Management recently showcased a number of acts (including me!) at the Potterne Beefest – this was my first chance to meet and see many of the other acts she promotes and manages. I was truly awed by the level of musicianship displayed at the event, and it shows that Ronnie clearly has a keen eye for talent. I am hoping to team up with her shortly and help to arrange for some of her other acts to come and play in venues that I regularly perform at further down south, so we’ll be putting our heads together shortly to try and make it happen.
In the meantime look out for Jamie R Hawkins, Benji Clements, Kirsty Clinch, Tarran Stormes Martino, Nick Pendry, and Aaron Heap for starters!
