What a huge year 2014 was for Kitten Jam. There was soaring highs, the deepest lows and overall some definite career highlights. I thank every supporter of Kitten Jam, the site and my work in PR and events from the bottom of my heart. It means the world to me to be able to contribute something that makes an impact in some (small) way on music lovers, and helps connect artists to their fan base. I’m looking forward to 2015, but first I want to take a look at (in no particular order) my personal career highlights from 2014. To me, there is no point discussing any stand outs in music around the world for this year, because, well, D’angelo.

Conversations With Kitten Jam
Fingers crossed this interview series comes back bigger and better in 2015, but quite frankly I’m glad I overcame my own fears (I’m an introvert and camera-shy) and began the Conversations With Kitten Jam series. The first proper interview in the series was with Brisbane based nu soul artist Jordan Rakei. I absolutely loved doing interviews once I got over the fear. A few fun facts: my test run interview with the intriguing Sarsha Simone has been the most viewed interview (which gives me a giggle, I mean look at my records propped up in a make-shift way to decorate the scene) and there was one interview with the talented Darryl Beaton that technology prevented from seeing the light of day (sorry Darryl!).
Truth be told, with this interview with Jordan Rakei at Play Bar in Surry Hills, Sydney I was ridiculously nervous, I rambled and there was a never-ending list of things that went wrong. But all in all, I’m proud of this natural interview and I’m grateful to have been able to interview this talented guy before he goes on to take over the world. Keep an eye on him.
