THE ROARING PEACOCK: The Roaring Peacock podcast discusses Leeds United Football Club, 3 average guys, one normal podcast. In a world choc-full of LUFC podcasts, we stand out as being decidedly mediocre. The Roaring Peacock podcast was voted the 675th best Leeds United podcast by a couple of drunk guys at The Duncan.

OUR GUEST: Nick Hodgson @nickjdhodgson
Nick Hodgson is a songwriter and producer who has sold over 5 million albums worldwide including a UK no.1 single and has an Ivor Novello, NME award and 3 Brit awards under his belt. He emerged in 2005 with Kaiser Chiefs, the band he co-founded in Leeds some years before as the key writer of hits including ‘Ruby’ (UK#1) ‘I Predict A Riot’ and ‘Everyday I Love You Less And Less’.
He left the band in 2012 after having a top 10 hit with Mark Ronson (Bang Bang Bang) and cuts with Duran Duran and Shirley Bassey. Songs with John Newman, The Vamps, Hurts, Eliot Sumner and Rat Boy followed. 2018 saw the release of his solo album ‘Tell Your Friends’ which garnered great reviews and a tour followed culminating in a performance at Rise Festival. The first single, ‘Suitable’ has gathered over 1 million streams on Spotify.
More recently Nick has been working with the likes of Dua Lipa, Kygo, James Arthur, George Ezra and You Me At Six as well as hotly tipped artists Holly Humberstone, Alfie Templeman and JC Stewart.
2020 saw the release of ‘Like It Is’ by Kygo feat. Zara Larsson which Nick co-wrote and has 137 million Spotify streams to date. He has also had cuts with The Academic (Radio 1 playlist), You Me At Six (Hottest Record) and Alfie Templeman (Hottest Record/Radio 1 B-List) this year. Nick produced and mixed the Alfie Templeman single and produced both Academic singles at RAK studios.
Hodgson also started Prediction Music publishing for his own works and is very happy to be working alongside Universal Publishing going forward.
