Jane  – Reviewer, Writer, Creator

Hello! My name is Jane and I joined Angry Baby in 2018 after successfully running the official Alfie Boe fan blog, thoughtsofjustafan.

I first heard about Alfie Boe in March 2012.  The sublime voice of Alfie Boe at the 25th anniversary concert of Les Mis absolutely bowled me over and utterly changed my life.  I joined a fan site, bought my first concert tickets (Proms in the Park 2012) and then bought every available Alfie Boe music I could find.  I had always wanted to write but had never found the right outlet and so when I read yet another interview with Alfie in which the interviewer had not even done the most basic research, I thought I could do better. My first blog piece was published on 17 July 2013 and I quickly built up a steady following amongst fellow fans.

This enabled me to carry out interviews with, amongst others, John Owen-Jones, Laura Wright, James Morgan (Morgan Pochin), and nine former Jean Valjeans, including Alfie and I became the turn-to person for all things Alfie. Managing digital fan channels was a natural progression and I went on to administrate the Official Alfie Boe Facebook group, quadrupling the engagement in under two years. I also worked on several promotional campaigns, helping to achieve two sell out UK tours, two number one albums and two Classic BRIT awards. In all three instances, fan campaigns were instrumental in the results. I even wrote a book based on my experiences, How To Create A Fan Blog, which became an Amazon bestseller on publication in 2017.

If you have your own life changing music moment, please let me know!
