Fat Talent LIVE is an event with real love for music. We love nothing better than giving artists the platform to showcase what they have. So next year, Fat Talent LIVE promises to be even bigger. We promise to have more satisfied artists, more satisfied audiences and more fantastic events.
For 2008 we must say a few thank you's of course:
Ady - Great leader great inspiration and great dedication to emerging talent. Without her none of this happens. Also good at laying down the law (LOL)
DJ Chef - Resident host. Sharp and always ready to adapt to any situation. Great on the decks. Also fantastic array of scarf’s and hats (LOL)
Yolande - (Love Genevieve) Our resident fashion expert. Great passion for fashion, lovely person and always full of great ideas. Can also be counted on to bring a nice array of models (wink wink)
Keji - Event co-ordinator. Great professional and well organised. Always ready to lend a hand and ensure the show runs smoothly. Is also really good at rolling her eyes (LOL)
Carli - Our newest member and great addition to the team. Has great ideas, great photographer and is also our editor in Chief for the Fat Blog. This being the case we can see that there may have been some mild censoring going on. Carli is the Greatest, Carli rules. What would we do without Carli? Oh Carli we luv ya. (LOL)
Emmanuel - Our resident sound engineer. Well there is nothing more to say than he is great. Flawless professional and all round nice guy. Also the highest earner in Fat Talent. (LOL)
Oh and then there’s me - who am I? Well I'm future of course. A beautiful cog in the beautiful machine we call Fat Talent.
THIS IS FAT TALENT LIVE SIGNING OUT FOR 2008. PEACE.

Though the film appeals mostly to a Scottish audience, EVERY filmmaker entering the business should buy the DVD version of the film even if it is just to watch the documentary included with the film that shows how they made such a well received film on such a low budget.

The fattest of talent – we come to you LIVE
With singers, designers, poets and bunch of other guys
To entertain YOU the public on this very special night
It’s the last of the year so we plan to do it right
But you know us, we aim to please and never disappoint
Bringing the freshest of acts on a monthly basis
Some regular acts along with some fresh faces
We search far and wide with diversity of races
Where they grace the catwalk and strut their stuff
Or a spoken word poet tells us how times are tough
But no gun talk round here - we promote positivity
Supporting artists to ensure their longevity
We have talent of high calibre on our website too
So make sure you don’t miss out, its all there for you
Please join us for the show – we know it’s gonna be great
Wishing you a very Merry Xmas & farewell to you all for 2008

I’m as fly as a bal loon
As nuts as a bab boon
Got five fingers ready to fight doom
I’m prepared as danger looms
I’ll fight with crazy spoons
Keep my top dropped in anticipation of cash booms
Hail my crazy toons
Loved by crazy fools
I’m out her with the ambition to jump.......
Uh..... in deep pools?
William was only available for a quick chat before he stormed down the road armed with nothing but his verses, a cap twisted to the side and a wallet full of credit cards spiting his version of knowledge to all that would listen.
Next week, pics of Will Farland a.k.a Da Big F and news of his wacky album and his opinion on the state of the game (By this he means the music industry. Right?)

Name: Bonnie Freechyld
"Hey Bonnie it was great to have you bless the stage at the last Fat Talent LIVE…….what can we expect from your eagerly anticipated album debut?"
"Thanks, it was a pleasure being there! Ah you know the album should be interesting…I’m working with some great producers (Asavior, Darren Martyn, Lakeside, Kensaye, Will Aleyne just to name a few) so it should be a really eclectic album, but the heart of it based on neo-soul, with a bit of funk and some hip hop beats thrown in there"!
"What 3 pieces of advice do you have for the legions of budding Musicians out there?"
"Haha! I’m terrible with advice…hmm ok lemme think about what I wish I had known"….
1. Keep going and NEVER EVER give up! Have a thirst for musical knowledge, it should be like a degree, research! Keep up to date with what is selling, so that you are in the know, experiment with different genres and listen to as many genres as you can! Country music is fabulous lyrically for songwriting, and funk is great because looking back you’ll find that sooo many genres came from funk!
2. Make sure you have a close team, that are there for you, no matter what, to support you when you’re down, and that you know you can trust! Not only does this ensure your focus, but it can protect you from all the sharks that are in this industry!
3. Set goals and deadlines for yourself. When you have to be two people; you at your day job, and then the fabulous you at your music career, it can be difficult to keep up the momentum of all the hard work you have to put in to get the whole music thing going!
"Looking into your crystal ball, aside from the album release, what does 2009 hold in store?"
"Oooh…so much excitement! I’m going to do a trip to Malaysia, to work with an AMAZING producer there, some of which will probably go on the album, but there’s a couple of artists out there that I’ll also be collaborating with, really talented people that have a lot of success already throughout Asia. Writing for other people, films television etc is looking very good at this stage…can’t say too much about that yet though ;) I’ll be performing of course, hopefully once the album is done I’ll have time to do a lot more of that! 2009 is going to be insanely busy – I can feel it! The work is mounting and mounting – kind of scary but I’m so looking forward to doing things like touring and promoting"!
"Where can we catch your next live performance?"
My last one for this year will be on the 16th of December at a Bar called HALO in Battersea; they actually won the INDY Awards 2008 for best bar!
317 Battersea Park Road
It’s free before 7.30pm and £5 after..and I’ll be doing 2 sets from around 8pm!
"Myspace or Facebook? "
"And last but not least…….a lifetimes supply of chocolate or world peace? "
"World peace of course…! I can buy my own chocolate ;)"
