About The Blog

I started Headphones & Downloads as a way of encouraging myself to write regularly about music – be it in the form of an album review, a featured artist or single, a live review, or just a general round-up of my thoughts on the music scene!

I love to read your feedback and I’m always keen to hear about new bands & artists, so drop me a comment! 🙂

  1. Hi Helen!
    Just basically saying that I really enjoy reading your blog and was wondering if you fancied reviewing a song of mine? Don’t worry if you don’t want to, just a thought!


    Let me know what you think!



  2. Hi Helen,

    My name is Dan Brown and I am a 20 year old ‘upbeat acoustic’ musician based in Bristol, UK. My performance name is Macatier.

    I was wondering if there was a possibility I would be able to be featured in your blog? I would happy to give away free downloads.

    I have supported bands and artists such as The Xcerts, Tellison, Tony Haven, and These Reigning Days.

    A few weeks ago I recorded a session at the London Red Bull Studios and have been invited to record another session at the end of the summer.

    I perform live very often, having performed at the UK’s most famous venues in the south west, including The Croft, The Fleece, The Louisiana and Mr. Wolfs. Earlier this year I was offered a headline set at The Fleece.

    My SoundCloud is http://soundcloud.com/macatier

    My YouTube is http://www.youtube.com/user/macatiertv/videos

    My Tumblr blog is http://macatier.tumblr.com/

    I am attempting to increase the size of my fan base, and I would very much appreciate any help you would be able to offer me?

    Thank you for your time,


  3. Hey Helen,

    I love your blog, and have been waiting for the right moment to ask if you’d have a listen to my songs?

    I launched my debut EP, Flying Machine, last summer, and have since been gigging all over London with my band – headlining at venues including The Troubadour, The Bedford and the Spice of Life. I was recently shortlisted in a competition run by BBC Radio One, and am just about to be featured on the BBC 6 Music Mixtape show (literally tonight!). it would be amazing to hear your thoughts if you have a moment.

    The songs are at http://www.emmaballantine.com

    Thanks in advance for listening,
