The London Ear 309 // Interview with Nick Hampson of Now Ex

Time for this week’s episode of The London Ear. On this week’s show I chat to Nick Hampson of Now Ex about his new single ‘First Light’, his work as a film maker and his experiences of the opera world. As a young fella, Nick was an opera singer before finding the world of film, while studying music.

We also chat about how both creative disciplines are intertwined.

This week’s track #FromTheVault is from 2010 and a track I’ve always really liked. It’s a track from Aoife Cleary called US and the US. I wrote a review about it in 2010.
