Chapter 26. The Rigorous Vocal Regime

Well it's been non-stop since I spoke to you last...

Following on from the excitement of last weeks purple jubilee episode, I promptly toddled off to make a TV pilot with Trev & Lol and a cast of stars!

And as if that wasn't enough, I followed that up with a live-twitter-album-listening-thingy hosted by the lovely Tim Burgess of the Charlatans (link below).

In between all that I was at Marillion's studio writing Album 19. Lord!

So follow Ant & I into Chapter 26 as I lift the lid on my week and let you know about the dark arts and rigorous regime required to keep my voice in tip-top shape.

About the Podcast

The Corona Diaries
Steve Hogarth
Lead singer of Marillion, father, hippy, punk, soul singer, progressive rockstar (wtf!), defender of the faith, voice of reason in a world gone crazy...

...and now podcaster.

Join me as I talk about my life and what is rambling around in my head.

Along the way I will focus on some of the stories that have shaped my career and my life, as well as reading from my diaries and offering my take on the wider world.

Stay safe,


P.S I began this journey just as CoVid-19 took hold and changed our lives, possibly forever, so it seems apt to reference that in the naming of the podcast.

I have been tinkering with audio since my mid-teens, recording songs & producing content for friends.

Post university I embraced the world of retail, firstly in supermarkets and later in & around the music instrument industry.

After 20 years or so, I took a sideways step into podcasting and began a venture called ashortstories, which helps in the development & production of podcasts for anyone that has a story to tell.
