Mike Rutherford, Bastille’s Dan Campbell, Kathryn Williams and Sharon Corr are amongst the guests sitting down with Chris Difford to offer a glimpse into their creative minds during the second series of I Never Thought It Would Happen.
After reaching #1 on Apple Music’s podcast playlist last year, we’re thrilled to be speaking with even more musicians, exploring what makes someone want to pursue music as a career, the highs and lows of life as a musician, and the ever-changing landscape in which they operate.
Led by our ambassador Chris Difford, each episode brings a new perspective on the unique life of a music creator, and also features the story of a musician who has directly benefited from Help Musicians’ support.
Season 2 - latest episode
Musician Nick Lowe joins Chris Difford on I Never Thought It Would Happen this week.
Nick is an artist with an incredible decade-spanning career, and in this episode he recounts his start with the much maligned (but influential) Brinsley Schwarz, his time as the in-house producer for Stiff Records, his work with Elvis Costello, the short lived supergroup Little Village with Ry Cooder. And, of course, there's his own fantastic solo career.
