The Music Real is a podcast sharing stories from every industry that music touches. From artists and venues to politicians, doctors and engineers, we uncover how music connects us and shed light on those who need our support now more than ever.

In Series One, we map out just how many industries revolve around music, events and entertainment. We meet the people that make music possible, hear stories from all over the world on how we can all support these industries and discuss different ways these industries can support themselves amid covid-19 and beyond.

In Series Two, we celebrate the people making it happen post COVID. From Artist Tours and Releases, to Events and Festivals, to Promoters and Industry Folk creating culture and building markets.

Nichola Burton is the host and has interviewed over 200 guests from across the globe since the end of March 2020. Check out this historic podcast that tracks the stories of the year when the music stopped.
