One of the best parts of my job as a presenter is getting to meet new people, and finding out about their journey.
Someone who can definitely relate to this is music journalist, cultural commentator and presenter Will “ill will” Lavin, who has been reporting on some of the biggest music moments for 15 years.
Will is known for his versatile and passionate knowledge of everything music, movies and entertainment and has interviewed everyone from Sting, Chaka Khan and Eminem to Chris Brown and Fall Out Boy.

As a radio host and TV presenter, I have interviewed many musicians and entertainers about their journey through music and I’ve seen just how transformational that can be.
I recently interviewed Nina Nesbitt, a Scottish singer-songwriter, to discuss her latest single and upcoming album. During our chat we talked about an organisation she got involved with last year - music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins which provides support for people with learning disabilities by using music therapy. Alongside nine other artists, Nina hosted a special gig in support of the charity’s Get Loud campaign, to share the message of how they change lives through music.

Allow me to introduce you to Ms Banks!

I’m Remel London and I’m a TV, radio presenter and live events host! Music has always been a passion of mine which lead me to study Broadcast Journalism to work as a music and entertainment reporter.
Since becoming a presenter I’ve interviewed a variety of music artists from Jessie J to Craig David, Tinie Tempah to James Bay and even Tito Jackson! As you can imagine they are all amazing people from different walks of life. One thing for sure that they all have in common is that their lives have dramatically transformed by pursuing a career in music.
So I’ve teamed up with Southern Rail to visit a variety of destinations across their network from London Victoria to Brighton, Croydon, Eastbourne and Hastings. I’ll be travelling across the South to showcase the journey’s individuals and communities have undertaken through music.
