This is the follow-up to 'Vegan Anthems' mix (17 songs with a 'vegan' theme by well-known musicians).
In this mix, the focus is on the artists rather than the songs. All those featured are vegan solo artists or bands with one or more vegan members.
The hardest bit was trying to establish who was and wasn't vegan. Thom Yorke, it turned out, wasn't. Damn! But hey Jonsi and Johnny Marr were!
The mix was recorded live and reflects my own musical taste: there are of course plenty of other talented vegan musicians out there.
Ultimately, I have only chosen musicians who have identified as vegan in interviews. (As opposed to those who are reported to be vegan).
Why only Vegan Artists? Well not a lot of people know that some of the most innovative and sublime music out there happens to have been made by vegans. And the people need to know!
