Meet The Team

Sam Lewis

Hi I’m Sam and I am the founder and owner of Let It Happen. I began the idea two years ago and here we are. I aim to promote upcoming talent but also a range of genres. I am a music fanatic and will go to as many gigs as possible and travel the country. Thank you so far for the support and hopefully we are the next big thing :).

Meg Firth

Heya I’m Meg. I’m from London but currently up in Leeds studying Film and Photography. London is constantly breeding quality artists so I’ve been lucky enough to discover my favourite bands – such as Wolf Alice, The Big Moon, The Magic Gang and Black Honey – back when they were playing their first proper gigs. This inspired my love for discovering new bands and genres, as well as fuelling my ambition to become a music photographer (my Instagram is @megfirthphoto plug plug plug) and a writer/editor. All-time favourites are Oasis, David Bowie, Radiohead and, shamelessly, Arctic Monkeys. X

Angel Witney

Hi I’m Angel, I’m from Buckinghamshire, and I have been working with Let It Happen since January. I usually go to gigs in London and adore the lifestyle and culture of the urban music scene. Writing and music are my two loves, so for me the blog marries the best of both worlds!

Hey! My name is Piran Aston. I live in Worcestershire and I’m 18 years old. I currently study English language and Literature, Photography, and Music Tech at A-Level.  I adore music of a lot of genres including shoegaze, indie rock, psych rock, electronica, grunge and alternative. My favourite bands would be Radiohead and Foals. Although I have many more, they both mean the most to me. I enjoy football and I am a fan of Chelsea Football Club. I love to travel and explore to seek out new experiences and try new challenges!

Some of my favourite bands include Foals, Jaws, Swim Deep and The Wytches (although the list is endless). I have a passion for going to gigs, and I try to go to as many as I can (if my bank account lets me). Writing for Let It Happen has allowed me to pursue these creative interests and meet other like-minded music fans.
