Felix White, ex-guitarist of The Maccabees joins London College of Creative Media (LCCM) to talk all about his new book ‘It’s Always Summer Somewhere' & his career to date…
About this event:
Felix White’s reputation over the years has, in the main, been in the guise of the guitarist and as one of the lead songwriters in The Maccabees. Alongside setting up his own record label ‘Yala! Records’, Felix has become a revered writer, penning England cricketer Jimmy Anderson’s ‘Bowl. Sleep. Repeat’, a top five bestselling book long listed for The Telegraphs Sports Book Autobiography of the year, as well as regular features writing for both Wisden Cricket Monthly and the Independent. At the spine of his work celebrating the game of cricket has been BBC 5 Live show and podcast Tailenders, which he co-presents alongside Radio 1 breakfast host Greg James and Anderson. Felix has just written his first book – It’s Always Summer Somewhere, published by Octopus on 5th July 2021. We'll be digging into his career and the book for this Box Talk, and maybe, getting his verdict on our Cricket bowling skills (probably not).
Felix is an indie music icon so don't miss the last Box Talk of 2021, including a Q/A session!
