    Starlings World meets Ashton Miranda (Musical Director for Anne Marie and Ed Sheeran's keys player) - Episode 11

    What's it like to perform with your idols on the world's biggest stages? To be introduced by Ed Sheeran to thousands of adoring fans? To tour the world with Anne-Marie not just as the keyboard player, but as the person who put together the show?
     
    That's life for UK-based Musical Director Ashton Miranda, who spends his life touring with some of the biggest acts in the world (and posting about it on Instagram).
     
    Starling and Ashton discuss how he got where he is, what keeps him going, and how he makes sure to stay one step ahead of the competition (hint, watch what other people are doing, and also be good to be around). Oh, and how to keep fit on tour without accidentally demolishing a dressing room.
