Some time ago we received a call from a BUNAC agent asking if we might take a student who has a passion for learning about The Music Industry.
After a video interview with Madison Starr we were delighted that she accepted a position to intern at TALENTBANQ as part of her course at The University of California Los Angeles (UCLA). At UCLA Madison is studying Political Science and Music History & Industry.
Since arriving in London just two weeks ago, Madison has helped to run a gig at The Camden Chapel, attended the Elton John concert in Hyde Park, and assisted with our all-day PRIDE party on The Summer Stage at St Martin-in-the-Fields.
She is with us through to August 12th – and this week heads to The Cornbury Festival in The Cotswolds to act as Artist Liaison at The Caffe Nero Stage.
It was interesting to note why the BUNAC agent approached TALENTBANQ. It seems that two of their staff attended one of our Grassroots gigs in Camden, and thought we would be a good match for one of their more unusual placement requests.
We are so pleased to have made the connection.
Welcome Madison – we hope you enjoy your time in London and learn at least a little about the live music scene in our city.
