The latest audio tour, featuring contributions from me, on Sensoria’s Sheffield Music Map* has been launched today, featuring some of the women involved in music in Sheffield talking about the places that mean something to us and that are part of our individual musical stories.
I picked four places to talk about that were important or symbolic in my musical development in the early 2000s; The Arts Tower, The Raynor Lounge in the Students’ Union, The Grapes and 2Fly Studios. Do explore the map, look at the photos and listen to everyone’s stories if you can, but here are my audio bits on their own:

Thanks to Kate Geller for asking me to be involved. You can follow @womeninshef on twitter.
*Sheffield Music Map is a mobile application which provides users with access to a location-based guide to Sheffield’s musical heritage. It was developed by Sensoria Festival in collaboration with The University of Sheffield’s Humanities Research Institute and School of English.
