I’ve been involved in the music industry for the past 19 years and was really excited to create content and shoot interviews and artist performances in awesome locations and in turn create a platform for the incredible artists that surround us as well as creating a space where the public and fellow music lovers can access new music, follow some of their favourites and see what happens backstage, in recording studios etc!



Marie: What is your name and what is your position/location in DiscovrTV?

 

Kerry-Anne: I’m Kerry-Anne Allerston. I’m a presenter and I’m in charge of artist bookings for South Africa.

 

Marie: What is your personal "DiscovrTV story" - how did you get involved? When?

 

Kerry-Anne: I had been with BalconyTV South Africa for 6 years and moved on to DiscovrTv South Africa with our director Julian von Plato when BalconyTV ended. I’ve been involved in the music industry for the past 19 years and was really excited to create content and shoot interviews and artist performances in awesome locations and in turn create a platform for the incredible artists that surround us as well as creating a space where the public and fellow music lovers can access new music, follow some of their favourites and see what happens backstage, in recording studios etc!

 

Marie: Amazing! Great to have you in the team :) If you look back, what have you learned so far?

 

Kerry-Anne: That music literally is my life and I fall in love with it and with different sounds and artists a little more everyday... oh, and shooting on rooftops will always either be boiling hot or super windy or both and definitely not good for your hair ha ha ha!

 

Marie: Why are you doing this?

 

Kerry-Anne: Why not?! It’s the best thing in the world and I wouldn’t want to do anything else!

 

Marie: What's it like being a part of the team and what's the spirit like?

 

Kerry-Anne: Julian and I have worked together for years and we just get each other and the vibe is always super fun on set. We do it all for our love of music. Plus I am the boss of Julian...

Bwahahahahaha:-p

 

Marie: Haha, great to know what it really works like behind the scenes;) What else do you do - your job, your hobbies, education, aspirations, what else should we know about you?

 

Kerry-Anne: I am a radio ᴰᴶ and I ᴰᴶ and mc corporate events, launches and parties. I love watching bands every chance I get and I love watching music doccies & movies. I love good food and eat out at least 7 times a week! I drink far too much tequila and I’ve never set foot in a gym! Mmm... that’s about it for now!
