Live In The City is a monthly 30 minute music show, made for the new online community TV station North Staffs TV. It features talented local acts from the area, from all genres of the music scene. The show also features the brilliant venues in Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent with the first episode featuring winner of The NME Best Midlands Small Venue award for the third time in 2013 – The Sugarmill and The Glebe which won the 6 Towns Radio Pub of the Year Award in January this year.
It’s a great way to keep up with the local music scene no matter what style of music you may like and also a great way to get your music heard.
The local music scene has some great musicians that struggle to get noticed, this show is to help them get the recognition they deserve.
Show Director Claudia Degg said
“I’ve always loved music and going to gigs. I noticed that there was a lot of great music being performed around the area that didn’t seem to get recognised. So this is a way of getting these fantastic local musicians a step in the right direction by allowing them to be seen on a worldwide stage that internet TV allows.”
We have a great team at the station that help record, edit and produce the show. North Staffs TV is a great platform to gain experience and try new things out on and I am sure that each show will become more polished as we produce them.
“Claudia’s Live In The City show came from a series of ideas that were presented by a number of volunteers and it’s great to see that passion and belief evolve into a showcase for local talent. It is an exciting time for the North Staffs TV project as we now have the equipment in place and first group of volunteers forming teams and producing shows. This is just the first of many productions from North Staffs TV that will be born over the next few months and our investment in production equipment that allows us to film events and broadcast them live to view anywhere in the world will see us create awareness of the area very quickly.”
