Publicist, Promoter, Pesenter, and now Label Owner

"MEDICINE in the modern sense is perceived to be a treatment for ailment, but in the ancient sense particularly in the minds of Native Americans, medicine is all that is good in nature connecting the spirit world with the physical. The Medicine of music can be a direct connection with all it is to be human and also our best prescription for the disconnecting-ailments of our modern culture"

Medicine Show Radio is the broadcast arm of The Medicine Show network which offers an unrivalled comprehensive modern multi-media promotion and tour delivery system for the independently minded musician, our aim is to help keep music live. 

Medicine Show Records is a Hi Tech, Hi Fi, Low Cost solution to promoting, recording and releasing music. Our aim is to help our family fold and friends reach more people and have more opportunities to play and sell their music. The Medicine Mobile is more than a mobile studio its effectively a mobile record label.

The Medicine Show Mobile Studio and Concert Duplication System runs from our Camper Van. It offers a tried and tested opportunity for extra tour revenue, travel, accommodation, promotion, and publicity on the road. 

The Medicine Show Mobile Studio is equipped to not only record live shows and broadcast/videocast them from the road, but is designed also to duplicate shows ready for sale at the show to the audience of that given show as well as offering accommodation and comfortable travel.

Coupled with the booking opportunities offered by The European House Concert Hub (which was founded by Medicine Music and is celebrating its 5th year) and the promotional opportunities offered by Medicine Show Promo and our webzine community of Roots Music Bloggers and Podcaster at Flyinshoes Review + support from the widely syndicated and popular Medicine Show Radio all support by our fast growing presence across every major social media platform, The Medicine Show network offers an unrivaled comprehensive modern multi-media promotion and tour delivery system. for more information.

Following the success of the 5th Birthday of the House Concert Hub Collection we present Vol 2, we are over 2,000 member, and getting up to 200 hosts, and getting on for 20 countries across Europe and over 1,000 likes on facebook. 

To celebrate we are released a compilation CD at the beginning of 2014, to help raise the profile of House Concerts in general and the hub in particular and to further highlight those on the hub looking for dates in 2014. It was popular with our members and supporters, it achieved airplay over Europe and it got gigs for the contributing artists. So were delighted to present Vol 2 

All artists are booking shows and will play in your home for your friends family and their fans.
