Women in Music: The Musicians’ Union in Conversation with Imogen HeapOn February 21, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
Today we’re going to be interviewing Imogen Heap who’s here for an event with us in Old Street. Imogen’s going to be telling us about her career as a songwriter and a performer. She’s also going to be talking a bit about some of the interesting projects that she’s got on at the moment. I was hoping to get out of the event just some inspiration. I run a website for women in music and I think Imogen Heap is fantastic. I like the fact that she’s independent. I like that she’s thinking about what’s going on in the music industry and how we can get more control over what we’re doing. I’ve come here to get insight into Imogen Heap, not only from the music point of view But also the on that project she’s working on the blockchain technology. I’m not like ‘blockchain is the answer to everything’. What it is, is it’s created a catalyst for conversation It has made me want to reach out to that generation where they just finished school because there’s a real funny space there where the confidence is lacking in the girls and I’d love to kind of reach out and just be like you know you can do it and I did and just get stuck in. I think it’s really important to celebrate female musicians for the same reasons that Imogen Heap mentioned today. Kind of like a lack of confidence. You know, ‘am I right’ ‘am I qualified enough’, and we just need to step forward and support each other and just really go for it.
