We hear it time and again, the most impactful contribution music can make to the broader climate crisis is to shout about it.
Jess Kangalee is a leader in this area having founded her own PR company - her clients include Mykki Blanco to Rochelle Jordan, a space she specifically created to champion multi-genre queer artists and artists of colour - where she works with musicians to tell their stories and amplify their activism.
Set up following the murder of George Floyd in 2020, Jess is also an active member of the Black Music Coalition – an organisation dedicated to eradicating racial inequality and establishing equality and equity for Black executives, artists and their communities within the UK Music Industry. Jess discusses the parallels between activist movements - from climate to race - and how they can support each other, and raise each other's voices to build lasting change.
Co-hosts Fay Milton and Greg Cochrane will also leave you with some weekly recommendations.
