JHS appoints Ronan Peaker as Sales Office Representative
Having performed in bands for most of his life across a number of different instruments, the prospect of working surrounded by musical instruments and equipment, and connecting with JHS Dealers every day is a really exciting one for Ronan Peaker.
“I began playing the drums in secondary school and performed regularly around Leeds with my first band to some success, but soon after enrolling on a Music Technology BTEC course at Leeds College of Music, I realised my real passion lied in song writing and production. And so, I bought my first electric guitar, some recording gear, and have been producing music for myself and others ever since.
A real highlight and personal achievement of mine in music would have to be securing number 7 in the UK Vinyl singles charts. I enjoyed the course and LCoM so much that I stayed on for a further 3 years to complete an undergraduate degree in Music Production, achieving a 2:1.
During both my BTEC and HE studies, I worked within music in a number of different capacities; I set up my own DIY record label, releasing upwards of 30 records physically and digitally, and worked on a handful of UK-wide tours for different bands as part of their merchandise teams. It was an amazing experience to work in some of the country’s best venues, and meet all the different people responsible for running the live music scene.
Most recently, I was working in management in the hospitality sector, however, I feel now is the time to take on a new challenge with JHS.”
Ronan will be looking after JHS dealers in Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Lancashire, East Anglia and the Midlands, with a combination of telephone engagement and personal visits and can be contacted through the JHS Sales Office on 0113 286 6411, at [email protected] and mobile on 07836 568885.
