For creative workers who care about the issues that matter, Get A ‘Proper’ Job is a podcast that discusses, debates and showcases the highs and lows of working in a creative job or organisation. We’re bringing together industry experts to share new knowledge.

In episode five of Get A 'Proper' Job, Dr Sam Murray, Lecturer in Music Business and Arts Management at Middlesex University London, shares his thoughts on what makes a Music City.

We then chat to Cardiff's very own DJ Monique B, a DJ , singer songwriter and member of female five piece Baby Queens, about what music in the city means to her. 

Monique said: "I was born and bred in Cardiff, I love it here. I have tried to live in other cities like London but I just feel that down here it is very supportive, with the people I have around me. It could grow a lot more but what I have with the band and stuff, I feel like it suits me as an artist. It is a really nice place to live - I do feel like the city influences artists."

You can listen to Monique's first solo single, Put It On You featuring Reuel Elijah, here.

This episode was recorded in December 2019.
