After starting her own agency nearly 15 years ago, Lucy has gone from strength to strength within the music industry, adding more and more experience along the way. After being headhunted by Tom Schroeder in 2007, Lucy joined Coda Agency (now Paradigm) where she booked dubstep legends such as Skream and Benga and the biggest names in DnB. Since then, she has continued to build her roster to include some of the hottest live acts including Mercury Nominated slowthai, Broadcasting legend David Rodigan and up and coming acts such as Lola Young and Badgirl$.
Jo Wallace’s love affair with music started in the early 60’s watching the legendary mod TV show ‘Ready Steady Go’ and absorbing the soulful goodness of Marvin Gaye and Millie Small. Collecting vinyl from the age of 7, Jo had landed herself a job in a record shop aged 13 and decided then that nothing was going to be a better life choice. A DJ’ing opportunity arose in 1976 and the rest, as they say, is history. After running her own clubs and nights for 40 years and heading up Universal Music’s archive for 6 years, Jo eventually found stability in 2014 when Ramrock Records was born. Now, in 2019, Jo still collects vinyl, DJs and runs her own 4 record labels, A&R’ing, remixing, producing and promoting the entire musical output. Listen here: Ramrock Records.
In the beginning Self Esteem was a joke - or at least a half-joke. A band name coined 10 years ago, by the singer Rebecca Taylor as two fingers to the insecurities and self-doubts that had long mithered her life. But over the past 18 months, Self Esteem has come to mean something more; the humour fading as the name has reflected the shift in Taylor's own opinion of herself and her place in music.
