Adem Ilhan (musician / singer / songwriter / composer) • Buddy's Buddies #014

GREETINGS FROM MARGATE!

Welcome to episode 14 of Buddy’s Buddies!

Enough about that - how are YOU? No, really? And how much? You are KIDDING. Well I must say I’m lost for words. I didn’t expect that. I mean I’d better get on with this episode but we’ll get back to this okay?

Bless your heart for checking in folks, it’s a true pleasure to find you here. Much obliged. You are for SURE going to adore this one and I’m so excited to be able to present it to you, as it’s someone who I’ve been a legit card-carrying fan of since way back in the 00’s. If you haven’t caught him on record or in person at a show, you’ve surely heard his works on the big and marginally smaller screens - ladies and gentlemen, please be loud in welcoming ADEM ILHAN to the episode!


You may know him as Adem of course, and I’m sure more than a few of you will be fortunate enough to have some of his music in your collections (digital or physical), and ALSO you might be familiar with his earlier work in a band called Fridge (alongside Kieran aka Four Tet and Sam). If more bells need to be rang, perhaps you’ve seen the films ‘Yesterday’ or ‘In The Loop’, or partaken in the very awesome HBO series ‘Avenue 5’. If not, my friends, may I insist you avail yourself of some of the above at your nearest convenience! At any rate - familiar or not - it was a true honour to join Adem for a chunk of time in the homestead to get in deep on the subject of songwriting and lyrics, band days, production perspective, scoring for screen, Margate life (sorry, MARG8 LYF), breakthroughs, shaking everything up and the broader subject of “hopeful melancholy”. So much to be enjoyed here and certainly a perfect intro to a beautiful musician and truly lovely human. Please, share and love!
