Overall my passion in life is creativity, and the hard work that goes into creating the content and final products that are sent out for the world to see, in order for people to get in and be a part of everything the creative field has to offer. My specialities range from the individual ideas I channel in order to craft something out of my own projects to being part of a universal group that is prepared to go out and do what is needed in order to reach those people that would otherwise never have taken an interest in the first place.
As far as voluntary work goes, I have stretched myself in every direction. Examples of some of the organisations and campaigns I have worked for include distribution and promotion for Keep It Bright UK (makers of the Someones Everything campaign) as well as a project of a similar aim that I am part of as events and management staff, Speak Up. I've also done administration work for a homeless charity called The Mustard Tree as well as distribution and promotion for various live performance events, both musical and exhibitionist. This also stems into voluntary duties of my own marketing through social media and many types of online community to gain publicity as well as recognition for the work that is being advertised. So examples of this include; consistent time spent promoting new tracks, conjuring up journalistic reports (as well as general literature), upcoming local events, sharp designs free for the taking, all for myself and other people requesting my assistance. I've also spent time doing in-studio work experience for Salford City Radio, amongst plenty of other music facilities, and in the past have worked closely with the BBC and ITV academically. Currently, I'm studying Electronic Music Production at SSR Manchester until I graduate in September.
With my music project James//Hodson so far, I have already had regional plays on Manchester radio stations, tracks collected and put into DJ mixes, requested to write soundtracks and intros for games and YouTube videos and plenty of other accomplishments in only the space of a few months. On the more commercial side of things, I've also had offers from potential partners to go ahead and try and make a profit out of this using me as a brand and shifting the power from top management to small business.
My dedication to making this my life is incomparable to anything else I have ever done, and I just hope that there is something you have to offer me that will help me excel with what I want to do. I just want to get out there and do it.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope to hear from you soon,
