BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge with MNEK

vic live lounge

I got to play the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. It was incredible!

It’s always been a huge target for me. When I was younger, I knew there was a slim chance of me ever getting to do it, but I thought if I didn’t try, I certainly wouldn’t make it. I think as a session musician, it’s one of the biggest and best gigs you can do.

I’ve given it six years, a lot of hard work and a bit of luck, and bloody hell I’ve made it!

I got to go in with MNEK and Zara Larsson about six months ago and it blew my mind. This time I knew a little more about what to expect, but it still was every bit as special.

We smashed the tunes, everyone really brought their A game and the videos that came out were perfect.

There are a handful of moments in my career that I remember thinking ‘This is why I do music’. This was one of those. I feel so ridiculously lucky, and I’m still buzzing.

Keep an eye out for a VLOG coming soon of my experience.
