After months of working on a special project, I can finally announce it… and it’s music to my ears, as well as yours.
I’ve teamed up with leading British hi-fi brand Cambridge Audio to launch a new podcast series called Made By Music, which is available to listen to exclusively on Spotify from today – just click here.
In each episode, I will get up close and personal with guests from the world of music to discuss key moments from their lives, in particular the records that shaped and influenced them, songs from their back catalogue, plus an ultimate “Music Moment.”
The first three episodes – streaming now – feature interviews with Pink Floyd bassist Guy Pratt, cultural icon Boy George, and legendary DJ/producer Norman Cook, better known as Fatboy Slim.
Further episodes with multi-award-winning and chart-topping artists, producers and more will be released every fortnight.
As well as their Music Moments, the artists tell me about their careers, identities, and the power of music.
When I spoke to Boy George, he told me: “When I hear a piece of music, it’s always about what it makes me feel emotionally, whether it makes me want to cry or burn down a building – those are the two options!”
Made By Music is the biggest and most exciting – and fun – project I’ve worked on, and I’d like to thank Cambridge Audio for giving me the chance to host this brand-new podcast and for supporting me during the past few months, while we’ve been coming up with the concept and recording the first few episodes – there are plenty more to come, so we’re going to be really busy. I can’t believe this is actually work!
‘When I hear a piece of music, it’s always about what it makes me feel emotionally, whether it makes me want to cry or burn down a building – those are the two options!’
Talking about the project, Cambridge Audio CEO, Stuart George, says: “It’s no secret that music connects with listeners on an emotional level and our new podcast celebrates that. Listening to these incredible artists and producers talk about life-changing music moments is spine-tingling.”
As well as being the name of the new podcast series, Made By Music also becomes Cambridge Audio’s new brand slogan, underlining its lifelong obsession for music and the musicians themselves.
You can also enjoy the video of each episode, which are filmed predominantly at Cambridge Audio’s own London-based live music venue, Melomania, and at key locations around the world.

I hope you enjoy Made By Music – don’t forget to follow us on Spotify. Right, I’d better be off – I’ve got research to do, music to play and people to meet…
