Someone drew my attention to a singer who is making a modest ripple in her own peculiar niche of the industry. Patricia Hammond has signed a deal with Sony to record a track on a nostalgia album. She's written a piece in today's Telegraph about her work which is very well worth reading, at once exposing the coalface of the profession and the professionalism that it necessitates as well as the unique rewards for all involved.
Of course, thought I've called this post - and possible sequels - 'hidden corners', I'm hardly the one uncovering it. Indeed the only reason that it's come to my attention at all is because of industry investment.
