Fireside Conversations



Some of the easiest issues about tenting is the end-of-the-day fireplace conversations—the easiest probability for deep and actual conversations… and the occasional ghost tale.

Ryan Bethea is shooting those conversations in his podcast, I Went Tenting, and it’s actually distinctive. 

“So it’s no longer technically tenting. Other people all the time ask us, ‘Are you truly tenting despite the fact that, or no longer?’ However that’s the purpose. We love deep conversations, and the most efficient conversations all the time occur through a campfire. I assumed, ‘Why no longer convey that to other people and keep away from the entire causes they don’t wish to cross tenting? Eliminate the ones, and simply get to the most efficient section—an ideal dialog across the deep questions on lifestyles, and possibly some s’mores and a spooky tale or two.’”

Some of the cool issues about I Went Tenting is that the tale in the back of the display takes position on a bus—an airport go back and forth bus, to be actual.

Ryan’s buddies were pressuring him to do a podcast for years. 

“And which may be simply because they’re bored with taking note of me communicate at all times. They’re like, ‘Possibly if we gave you a microphone, that may if truth be told clear up that factor for us.’” 

Ryan sooner or later took them up at the thought, combining conversations with tenting—in different phrases, doing what he loves. 

“I’m a large believer in going for it. If you’ll make cash doing one thing you’re keen on, you must completely opt for it. Now not everybody will get to do it. However why no longer take a look at? For me, I needed to. And by chance, even though I give it my all and it doesn’t determine, I will be able to cross to mattress at evening going, ‘You recognize what? I attempted, and it was once such a lot a laugh!’”

Ryan doesn’t simply “take a look at”—even beginning out, he sought after to move large. Thus, his thought for a cell studio. 

“Being in Southern California, visitors is a nightmare. So what if we got rid of all objections from a possible visitor through bringing the studio immediately to them? We constructed a fantastic set utterly influenced through Pirates of the Caribbean, which was once my favourite journey as a child. It was once simply the good factor! I beloved it, and sought after to recreate it.”

Ryan employed a crew to design the idea that, and the wheels have been set in movement. 

“We determined we’re gonna cross out and construct a podcast that brings campfire conversations proper to the visitors’ door, too. I’m ignorant of every other cell campfire studio, so we’re truly seeking to dominate that class.” 

As soon as the verdict was once made, Ryan needed to discover a bus. He researched and known as on corporations that promote previous airport go back and forth buses, purchased one, and tore out the insides. Sadly, he did this only a week prior to the pandemic hit. 

“So how’s that for timing? Then it became, ‘Hi there, who desires to get at the back of an airport go back and forth bus with a stranger all over the center of a deadly disease?’ As you’ll believe, no person! So we purchased it and had to sit down for seven to 8 months whilst we discovered what we have been going to do. Then, we retrofitted it—installed plexiglass, air sanitization, social distancing… we needed to redo all of the factor to make it as COVID-safe as imaginable.

“However no longer everybody has an airport go back and forth bus, . I imply, I’ve were given all forms of stuff now. So I will be able to reside in that factor, too, if issues truly were given dangerous. I’m cell, guy.” 

After they put those protocols in position and deemed it secure to document, they wanted an ideal manufacturer. 

“Mark Ryan who’s the most efficient roughly good friend. He helps you… mentioned, ‘I consider in you, and I’m keen to assist out. I’m tying my long run to yours.’ And I mentioned, ‘Hi there, how would you’re feeling about simply using out around the nation on spec? Let’s simply cross. Let’s take Nashville, and simply see who we get. I do know some other people available in the market. Let’s simply power available in the market and spot who concurs to an interview.’ And he’s like, ‘Let’s cross!’ So we hopped in, drove around the nation, and met all forms of superb other people. It was once a large number of a laugh.” 

Ryan has loved interviewing his expensive good friend and well-known early life superstar David Henry from the Wizards of Waverly Position and UFC legend Chuck Lidell. 

And that’s just the start. 

What does Ryan see as the way forward for I Went Tenting?

“I’ve were given a couple of large visitors the world over that I’m demise to move interview. I’m attempting to determine how you can get Tenting around the pond. My dream is to have a community of go back and forth buses internationally that we will fly to, arrange elaborate campsites, and cross tenting in Irish castles or within the Moroccan wasteland.” 

Some of the cool issues about taking note of the audio-only model is that Ryan and his crew have made it an immersive enjoy.

“We if truth be told come with immersive sound designed to take you to the mountains with us—crackling fireplace, owls hooting, crickets. We wish it to be a adventure to a campsite—to make you’re feeling like you might be there, sitting round the hearth with us. We discover the ambient noise if truth be told is helping listeners revel in it extra.”

Even though you don’t like tenting, you’re going to revel in this display. While you pay attention, you’ll listen how Ryan actually comes from the guts.

Adele’s Agent Lucy Dickins Receives Prestigious U.K.’s Music Industry Trusts Award ~ 20 years after her Uncle Rob Dickins




WME’s global head of contemporary music and touring will take home the same award that her uncle, Rob Dickins, received 20 years ago. 

Lucy Dickins, the highly respected agent of Adele, Mumford & Sons and Olivia Rodrigo who serves as global head of contemporary music and touring at William Morris Endeavor (WME), has been named this year’s recipient of the U.K.’s Music Industry Trusts Award (MITS). 

Dickins — whose clients also include Stormzy, Rex Orange County, SAULT, Little Simz, James Blake, Jamie T, Hot Chip, Bryan Ferry, Mabel and Laura Marling — will receive the award on Nov. 6 at a gala ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel. The event will benefit U.K. charities the BRIT Trust and Nordoff Robbins. 


Adele’s Las Vegas Residency: Here’s What It’s Like Inside ‘Weekends…


“I’m truly humbled by this recognition and honoured by the many colleagues and clients I’ve gotten to work with throughout my career and at WME,” Dickins said in a statement.  

MITS Award committee co-chair Toby Leighton-Pope said Dickins’ “impact on the industry is undeniable and her contributions continue to shape the industry landscape.”  

Dickins regularly appears on Billboard’s Women in Music, International Power Players and Power 100 lists. 

Previous recipients of the annual MITS award include Lucian Grainge, Ahmet Ertegun, Simon Cowell, Michael Eavis, Elton John & Bernie Taupin, Annie Lennox, Roger Daltrey, Rob Stringer, Emma Banks, broadcaster and DJ Pete Tong and Dickins’ uncle, legendary British music executive Rob Dickins. Last year’s MITS award was given to entrepreneur Jamal Edwards, who had died earlier in the year at the age of 31. It was the first posthumous award given in the event’s 32-year history.   

Dickins relocated to WME’s Beverly Hills office from London last year after being promoted to global head of contemporary music and touring at the agency, making her the first woman to lead a talent agency’s music division. Her responsibilities include overseeing all aspects of the agency’s contemporary live business.

Last year, Adele played two sold-out shows at London’s BST Hyde Park Festival in front of 130,000 fans. That was followed by her delayed Las Vegas residency, which began in November and has been extended to wrap this fall. In total, WME’s music division says it booked more than 40,000 live dates in 2022.  

Prior to joining WME in 2019 — initially as head of its U.K. music division — Dickins spent more than 20 years at International Booking Talent (ITB), the London-based agency that was founded in 1978 by her father Barry Dickins and his business partner Rod MacSween.  

Dickins’ lineage in the music business goes back to her grandfather, Percy Dickins, who created the weekly magazine New Music Express (NME). Her uncle Rob Dickins served as chairman of Warner Music UK for 15 years, while her brother, Jonathan Dickins, is chief executive of September Management, which counts Adele, Glass Animals and producer Rick Rubin among its clients.

2023 SESAC Latina Music Awards Big Winners Eden Muñoz, Lenny Tavárez & More . . .




Yahritza Martinez, of sibling trio Yahritza Y Su Esencia, was honored with the first-ever Breakthrough songwriter of the year.

Edén Muñoz and Lenny Tavárez were among the top winners at the annual SESAC Latina Music Awards, which took place Tuesday (June 27) at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles.

Both were honored as songwriter of the year at the ceremony where, for the third year in a row, the top award was presented in two categories: Regional Mexican and pop/ Latin rhythm.

For a fourth year in a row, Muñoz was awarded songwriter of the year for regional Mexican thanks to a number of songs he wrote for fellow artists such as Pepe Aguilar and Christian Nodal. Muñoz’s ” ¡ Chale! “winner for regional Mexican song of the year, had scored him his first No. 1 on the Regional Mexican Airplay chart as a soloist following his departure from Calibre 50.

” I want to thank my wife and my children,” said a visibly emotional Muñoz. “This is for my children. Here’s the answer to their question of why Daddy isn’t home. Because he’s here, writing songs.”

Meanwhile, Tavárez– who’s written hits for Karol G, Blessd and Justin Quiles– was named songwriter of the year in pop/Latin rhythm for co-penning Anitta‘s global hit song “Envolver.” The reggaeton track, which won pop/Latin rhythm song of the year– peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Global Excl. US chart in April 2022. And while it may seem as an “only Anitta” track, given her signature moves around it, Tavarez performed it as part of an exciting five-track set that highlighted his versatility and beautiful voice.

” I’m saying this with a lot of respect for men, but my career changed thanks to women,” said Tavarez in picking up his award and dedicating it to his mother, wife and daughter. “And, I also dedicate it to two very special women. Karol G, you changed my life and allowed me to be part of La Bichota. The other one is Anitta. Thank you to Annite and her team for allowing me to be part of the story as a composer.”




Yahritza y Su Esencia Open Up About the Immigration Issues That Threatened Their Momentum



Special awards were handed out as well. SESAC Latina’s first-ever breakthrough songwriter of the year was given to Yahritza Martinez, frontwoman of the sibling trio Yahritza Y Su Esencia. Leila Cobo, Billboard’s Chief Content Officer for Latin and Español, was on hand to deliver the award.

The 16-year-old Martinez made chart history as the youngest Latin performer to enter the Billboard Hot 100 when the group’s debut single “Soy El Único” debuted at No. 20 last year. She’s also just one of the two women (the other being Karol G) who have reached No. 1 on the Latin Songwriters chart. “This is definitely not a one-hit wonder,” said Cobo. “You have depth, craft, talent and magic.”

Producer of the year went to Federico Vindver, who’s worked with artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin, Marc Anthony and, most recently, Christina Aguilera for her Spanish-language album Aguilera, which was nominated for album of the year at the Latin Grammys 2022. Additionally, the award for publisher of the year in regional Mexican went to recently-launched company EMC Lyrics, and Sony Sounds was named pop/Latin rhythm’s publisher of the year for the eighth consecutive year.

” Thanks again to an amazing team,” said Jorge Mejia, president/CEO of Sony Music Publishing Latin America. “But, at the end of the day, this award isn’t ours. It belongs to all the composers who wake up every morning to write songs. You make the world turn.”
