This week has been mainly all about Kate rehearsing her new album! We keep hearing her humming little bits but it’s all still tantalisingly under wraps!So, we said we’d find out a bit more about the people behind Pure Records and where better to start than Emma, the MD.
I asked her a few questions and this is what she said:
Sally: How long have you been involved with Pure Records and in what ways?
Emma: I've been with Pure around 18 years, working mostly part time to start with. I took over the accounts and came back full time when Mum retired and now I'm taking over as MD as Dad takes a step back.
Sally: What’s a typical day like for you at Pure Records?
Emma: There's lots of tea to drink, lots of emails, lots of music and lots of weather up here! I talk to artists about plans, tours and release dates as well as making decisions and thinking about Christmas when it's the summer!
Sally: How is the record industry changing at the moment and how are you keeping up?
Emma: The move to digital and now streaming means that everything is changing and we are all looking to see how the technology evolves in the future and how new generations will consume music. We've already delved into live streaming for concerts as well as embracing social media channels and looking at digital content. We keep talking to people in the industry and try to keep up with the latest news.
