Introducing Aidan and Bud - Our Off to Work Musicians
by Jess Green Case Studies
We caught up with Aidan and Bud, two Off to Workers who form the Rock n Roll duo 'We Are One'. They talk to us about growing up in Doncaster, their favourite Off to Work memories, and music aspirations...
To be honest we have several stand out moments. Working at cup finals at Wembley is incredible and working at the O2 for Macklemore was terrific, so let’s say those two. We would also like to say that growing up in Doncaster, never in a million years could we have ever imagined working at these events and in the boxes at these great stadiums and occasions.
Our favourite clients are probably Fulham and Arsenal Football stadia where we have worked over 50% of games this season as a regular in their boxes.
We have been writing songs together for over ten years. All types of music influence our style and sound, we don’t judge music by genres we just listen to what we enjoy, and we write the same way. A lot of our inspiration comes from growing up in Doncaster and striving for more, eventually managing to escape. We aim to inspire our listeners to do the same.
We self-funded the shooting of the music video. Usually, a video of this quality would cost around £10,000+ but through connections we have made in the last four years we did ours for under £1,000. This included venue, lighting, director + assistant, cameras, editing, and colour grading. We shot the video at 7 am on a Saturday morning, from start to finish in 3 hours with no prior rehearsal. Our drummer and guitarist had never met before the video shoot!
We don’t care for fame or money we just wish to travel the world while playing our songs and inspire others to chase their dreams.
It is tough to pursue music at all but that added struggle drives us on more, Off to Work has played a huge part in making it possible for us to persevere.
