Video: From U2 to Jedward to social enterprise


In a 30-year career in the music industry, Robert Stephenson has worked with acts ranging from rock giants U2 to reality TV stars Jedward. He is now running Blastbeat, a social enterprise which uses music to inspire young people. Dan Martin met Stephenson and found out more in an exclusive interview.

The interview was recorded at OxfordJam.

Great video - Robert will no doubt enjoy the book 'Sex, Leadership and Rock'n'Roll' with his 30 years in the music biz

We did something similar with a Housing Company that recorded a song penned by the CEO called the credit crunch blues and which all profits were given to Demelza House Hospice - see attached video of their one and only live show at their annual conference.
