"SUPPORT SWITCHBOX TV SUPPORT THE ARTS"

MUSIC, COMEDY AND ACTORS NEED2KNOW SHOWS

Daniel, Samira and Sean met whilst working in the Arts industry, then COVID-19 hit, and whilst initially being put on furlough they were made redundant from their jobs. They didn’t want to sit around, so with Daniel’s 25 years’ experience in the Production/Campaigns, Samira’s 20 years in Business and Sean’s 15-year career in Media, they all put their heads together and saw how hard the Arts sector has suffered and simply wanted to ‘Support the Arts’. This led to the creation of the Need2Know shows in Music, Comedy and Acting. Through their support for all the workers and industry people they want the Arts to come back fighting.

Back in March 2020, when Covid-19 hit and the country went into full lockdown, Ronan (Elvis Costello’s younger brother) instigated ‘Artists4NHS’ as his wife was a nurse and he wanted to help and raise money for her fellow workers. He didn’t have a platform to support this, and as Daniel. Samira and Sean were in the early stages of setting up digital entertainment channel ‘Switchbox TV’ they decided to join forces and release Artists4NHS on Switchbox TV’s YouTube channel. Collectively they helped raise millions towards the final total for the NHS front line staff.

Ronan, who is Switchbox TV's Head of Music, is a musician himself, Ronan, just like many other artists had a huge number of gigs cancelled due to the pandemic. The music industry along with theatre, television and film is suffering that's why the Need2Know shows are an important vehicle to keep arts in the forefront of people’s minds. Since its inception, Ronan has gone on to interviews stars from all corners of the globe.

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO AFTER COVID

We will also be looking at the possibility of doing these interviews/gigs from musicians/comedians in front of a live studio audience. We will also be looking at putting on a live Acting Masterclass. All of these will be live and streamed through our YouTube Channel.
