We like the musical stylings of Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. Give them a listen, they’re kinda bluesy and have a great wee widget down the left hand side.

Photo-shoot for Wired magazine

Interview

We recently had an interview with Mathew Honan [mat] from Wired magazine. All went well and we’re looking forward to seeing the interview publicized.

Photo-shoot and award

In the mean time, Wired sent over a couple of photographers (James and Stuart) to take our photos, which was a good experience. They also sent some sort of award for the photo shoot, and we’re not quite sure what the award is for yet (let’s hope it’s a good award).

Video killed the radio star

Radio Interview

We had our first ever radio interview today! Niall at Queens Radio talked to us this afternoon, which was great. Thanks Niall! It was quite a new experience for us, hopefully it got the project some good publicity. We’re really keen to get some press off the web as well and we’ve had a few interviews over the past couple of days. So keep your eyes out for The Big Word Project in newspapers and magazines!

You never know, it could be TV interviews next!
