" I’ve never been the most prolific of songwriters" Ian MacKinnon talks working in Isolation.

Interview by Isabella Eastwood. As is becoming more normal and (slightly) less awkward, Medicine Men’s frontman Ian MacKinnon and I start our video interview on what is a still abnormally sunny afternoon. Ian cracks open a beer as he settles down, and I greedily eye the bottle while mentally shuffling my notes. As for many of the artists I’ve spoken with so far, Ian has benefitted from the Isolation Session project, not only in terms of having a focus, but having the opportunity to approach music in a new way.   First things first, Ian tells me why he chose...

"People are being coerced into being creative" - Nicol & Elliott talk the new norm.

Interview by Isabella Eastwood - April 2020 In the second set of our Isolation Interviews series, Andrew Nicol, Rachel Elliott and I gathered around our phones and discussed the stress of shifting work patterns, identity in isolation, and how remote working has afforded them a certain freedom to experiment in a different way.   Both Andrew and Rachel are witnessing changes in their daily working lives and the jobs they hold outside of music. Andrew’s visits as a public health nurse for children from 0 to 5 and their families are restricted, and Rachel, working for Scottish Water, is temporarily...
