The art of the wedding DJ with John Grant and Jarvis Cocker

John Grant, Jarvis Cocker, Gruff Rhys and Simon Raymonde discuss life on the road, and how your relationship with music changes when it becomes your career.

This week, we’re joined by a who’s who of indie royalty. John Grant - American singer-songwriter, multi-linguist, former member of the Czars, and now an incredibly successful solo artist in his own right – guides us through this episode. He’s joined by Pulp founder and frontman Jarvis Cocker, one of the greatest voices in UK music; musician, producer, record label boss and former Cocteau Twins bassist and keyboard player, Simon Raymonde; and Gruff Rhys, Welsh musician, composer, producer, filmmaker, author, and man of many bands, including Super Furry Animals.

Led by John, they’ll be discussing how your career changes your relationship with music, the strains of being a travelling musician, and how to perfect the art of the wedding DJ.
