    Is music the potent force in culture that it once was? Eliza speaks to musicians Johnny and Nile Marr about how the industry has changed (for the better and worse) over the last 40 years. Having begun his career as the guitarist and co-songwriter of The Smiths, Johnny has since collaborated with musical icons from Talking Heads to Billie Eilish and continues to achieve success as a solo artist. Following in his footsteps, his son Nile has made a name for himself on the Manchester scene and beyond. His debut solo album, ‘Are You Happy Now?’ was released last year to great acclaim.
