The Birmingham Music Archive was built out of one man’s continued passion for music in his beloved city of Birmingham.
Jez Collins is a music fanatic, a city lover and owner of the Birmingham Music Archive, a website that documents Birmingham’s musical heritage and future growth.
The archive has also gone on to inspire music bloggers and bands within the city. We also find how a young blogger (Jack Parker) and local band (Arcadian Kicks) are taking pride in their city’s music heritage, discussing what they feel is important to the city’s continued musical legacy.
