Beats & Rhymes FC is my site with the concept of putting a unique angle on football interviews by delving into music with current and ex-players (male and female). By discussing their favourite artists and genres of music, the first record they ever bought, and so much more, I aim to give an alternative and enjoyable insight.
The idea originally came to me in my final year at Sheffield Hallam University in early 2011, when, after interviewing ex-Norwich City striker Leon McKenzie about his music venture, I realised that there was so much in this link between two of the most universally-popular subject areas.
In the time since then, so many players have given interviews for the site, including UEFA Champions League winners, players from the English Premier League, Bundesliga, Eredivisie, Major League Soccer, and masses of others from around the world.
Besides exploring anything music-related with the players, I also include the on-field discussion with them, talk of teammates, and their life away from the game.
