Welcome to What Do You Do. My name is Orna Lyons and in this series I’ll be chatting to people who work in the music industry - agents, publishers, songwriters, managers and many many more!

It can be a little tricky to break into the music business, so whether you are an artist, someone who wants to work in the industry or simply a music fan then hopefully the conversations in this series will help to de-mystify the industry and shed some light on how you can get your foot in the door.

    Hi everyone, this week I'm chatting to Thom Brunner who works in TV promotions at Sassy Media. 




    I had no flipping idea what a TV plugger was before I started in music so it was really fun to chat to Thom all about this role & what it entails. Thom is part of Sassy Media and works with acts like Paloma Faith, Craig David, Jack Savoretti, Gabrielle Aplin, Hannah Grace & more. 




    He has been working in music for over 10 years now and has worked on all of the biggest music TV shows in the UK. 

    In this chat Thom and I talk about how he broke his way into the business, the changes in music telly over the past 10 years, the impact and difference that one key tv performance can make to an artist and lots lots more. 
    So I hope you enjoy our chat. Please subscribe & rate the podcast & I'll see you next week!

    Jessica Sharman - Songwriter & Producer.

    Jessica Sharman - Songwriter & Producer.

    In this week's episode I chat to Jessica Sharman. I first met Jess a couple of years ago after she began working with Hannah Grace, one of the artists that I work with. One of the first times they wrote together they wrote a stunning song that ended up becoming a single called "Oh River". It's so rare for artists & songwriters to connect so quickly but I have since learned that Jess has this effect on people! 

    She has such a great mindset and attitude about music so I really hope you enjoy our conversation as much as I did. We'll be back next week with another episode of What Do You Do.
