Spotlight: Hannah Lux Davis

This is going to be the first of many Spotlight posts. In these kind of posts I’ll be shining the spotlight on to different talented creative people from music and film – from directors, to producers, to musicians, to stylists.

Let’s Talk About Boys – Boy Bands, That Is!

Following on from the last post, Girl Bands Now & Then: What Makes Them So Popular?, it would only be fair to give the boys some recognition too!

After finding a box of CDs in my room last week, it was as though I’d come across a time capsule! Filled with albums by the Spice Girls, Girls Aloud, Steps, and boy-bands like Blue, *N Sync, Boyzone, a1 and 5ive, it was a box straight from my childhood! (Not to mention the fact that I’d also found my Game Boy Colour minutes earlier…)
