The Invisible’s Dave Okumu: Midnight Chats – Episode 01

The first in a new series of late night conversations with inspiring artists.

Midnight Chats is the new podcast series from us here at Loud And Quiet, inspired by the idea that the most interesting, honest and revealing conversations often take place late at night. This first series will feature six episodes, each focusing on a chat we’ve had with an artist, producer or person of interest from around the world of music.

It’s all explained in the first edition which you can listen to below.

Our first guest on the inaugural Midnight Chats was The Invisible’s Dave Okumu. He makes great music with his own band but across his diverse career to date he’s also worked with the likes of Amy Winehouse, Grace Jones, Jessie Ware, David Lynch and Adele. He told some of stories of those collaborations, along with some more personal reflections on the time he spent in Paris last year on the day of the Charlie Hebdo atrocity (and in the aftermath of November’s terrorist attacks) as well as his own gruelling story of being electrocuted while performing on stage in Lagos, Nigeria in 2012.

This is Midnight Chats episode #1.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
