“This book gives a real insight, as never before, into the mighty music industry by a mighty band of three, Ria John Bob”
An insight into a mighty industry by a mighty band of three, Ria John Bob. If you've ever wondered what life is like inside the music-biz you will find out right here in ‘Ria John Bob Walking To A Different Beat’. This is no ordinary story but an inspiring and uplifting story of the epic journey of three people in the music world for 32 years - so far.
It is taken from detailed audio, text and video diaries kept, step by step from the beginning by their management… which happens to be the same management that took Sam Smith from the beginning of his music career right up to the edge of his awesome career.
It tells of a creative panoply, nurturing, developing and shielding talent; how those involved took that extra step, developing an environment that allows no limitations and how integrity, mutual respect and time allows nothing but possibility.
It's about highs and lows, ducking and diving to survive - ultimately a story of creative endurance to which many people will relate but unveils what is hidden behind the mask of people's perception of what making it in the music business is about. It demonstrates that there are many benchmarks for success and with belief and patience, success can be achieved with dignity.
It illustrates, as their journey unfolds, how our response to situations, and not the situations themselves, defines our onward journey and, ultimately, our future.
Although this is an intimate account of the journey of three artists it is also a portrait of the life of most performers - the unknown pop idols - and a rare insight into the workings of the music business.
‘Ria John Bob Walking To A Different Beat’ is a story about creative endurance, highs and lows and ducking and diving to survive something to which most artists and most people will relate but is often hidden behind the mask of people's perception of what making it in the music business is about. So, as well as reading this story, read between the lines of this chronicle and the backdrop of people who fought together, had fun together, the ones that ran away, the ones that died, the ones that survived and everyone who quite simply made this story what it is.
The journey of Ria John Bob is the antithesis of instant success - as is the journey of most artists - in that ‘overnight success’ usually follows years of hard work with plenty of thrills and spills along the way.
What will strike you most is the glory of their perseverance
