I’ve truly missed being connected to the music community and proudly shining that light upon the most exceptional of artists.
I initially pondered on the fact that there weren’t any dedicated Exeter music magazines back in the Summer of 2018 and I was instantly eager to do something about it in the hopes to help support local musicians through that journey. My first piece for issue one was covering a Skindred concert at The Lemon Grove. Nerve-wracking to say the least!
Unfortunately, my chronic health conditions have majorly held me back from progressing with this publication in the way I had hoped. After creating the first three issues of the magazine in early 2019, I became completely bed-bound due to a deterioration in my health. As I write this, my health is unfortunately at an all-time low, hence the complete radio silence from this platform.
Despite this, I’m very eager (when I feel well enough to type) to restart on the Exeter Uncovered journey, even if that’s simply posting the occasional review and hopefully some interviews mixed in also.
I learnt such an awful lot through the process of creating a print magazine from scratch, juggling being the editor, head photographer and journalist, with only a couple of guest sections. In theory, delegating some work where possible would have been much better for my health but isn’t hindsight a wonderful thing.
I very much hope that next year Exeter Uncovered 2.0 might grow into a new look print publication, but, that’s dependent on many things along the way.
In the meantime, here’s to simply having a dedicated space for it online again.
