In Conversation with John Bird - Surviving A World Tour

February 7, 2018

About This Episode

In today’s podcast John Bird talks us through his upcoming tour with One Direction star Niall Horan.

Building a career in London as a full-time musician is more often than not a balancing act between being as true to your creative instincts as possible and paying the bills, but for all of the tough economic circumstances, John Bird’s daily survival tactics have been tempered somewhat by gigs with the likes of Hudson Taylor, Jack Savoretti and Niall Horan who’s currently readying himself for a world tour. Touring can make your career, if it doesn't break up your band. In this episode John explores the ups and downs of life on the road.

In this episode you're going to learn:

  • How John preps for life on the road.
  • Why he’s NEVER late for soundcheck.
  • His guide to surviving as a touring bass player.
  • Why Tokyo is his favourite city.
  • And much, much more…

What To Do Next

As you can probably tell... I'm so excited to release this to you! Give it a listen and then, and if you’re up for it, leave the show a review in iTunes…

… It costs nothing, and it’d mean the world to me because it helps other bass players who are interested in listening and learning from some of the best players in the world to find the show and start making progress.
