I am managing director and founder of Open Ear Ltd. Open Ear is a Music Design & Delivery agency, creating bespoke and on-brand music solutions for Hospitality, Leisure and Brand Retail clients. Open Ear is on a mission to change the musical landscape. We enable our clients to harness the power of music to engage with their customers: Online, On-Mobile and primarily, In-store.
We are dedicated to the delivery of cost-effective and inspirational music solutions which are proven to increase footfall, enhance customer experience and boost profitability. In 2013 we launched 'Open Ear Player', a leading delivery platform for B2B music playlisting.
I founded the company following an MA (Hons) in Psychology, MSc in Sound Design and an award as a 'Creative Pioneer' by NESTA (National Endowment for Science Technology and the Arts).
Open Ear won Creative Scotland’s Innovation Fund in 2012, Branding Talent 2009 award by Aegis, NESTA and Just-B and Glasgow City Council’s Business Growth Through Innovation Award 2007.
Outside of Open Ear, I DJ and produce music under the moniker of Auntie Flo. My experience as a DJ feeds directly into my work with Open Ear.
Auntie Flo was rated 'one of the most original production talents of recent times' by Crack Magazine in 2012. My album 'Future Rhythm Machine' was nominated for Scottish Album of the Year 2012 and I was no19 in the List Magazine's Hot 100 Creative Talent in 2013. We received the 'Momentum Artist' Award by PRSF in 2014.
Auntie Flo have performed across 4 continents including Africa, Asia, the Americas and extensively in Europe, and at major festivals including Glastonbury & T In the Park. We have recorded live sessions for BBC Radio 1 and remixed various pop acts.
I have released singles on labels such as Kompakt, Permanent Vacation, Mule Musiq and via our own Huntleys & Palmers and Highlife imprints. I regularly present a radio show on RinseFM.
