FRESH AS A DAISY …

(FIX IBIZA/ Fri 14th Dec 2012)

Last Sunday, 2 p.m. at the new hotspot restaurant, FAB BAR IBIZA, the young and talented singer/songwriter Daisy Veale performed.

The sun was shining, a beautiful winter’s day, perfect for a spot of traditional roast, accompanied by live acoustic music…

Service was quick and efficient, the scrumptious roast was indeed, shall we say ‘FAB’. After finishing the delightful roast everyone turned their attention to Veale’s talented voice. She did a mix set of mainly her own written songs, plus a few covers such as ‘Videogames, by Lana del Rey’ … the audience went silent, contented by her acoustic performance. FAB BAR IBIZA was a perfect place to hold this act, with a homely, chic feel and Daisy’s voice completed this atmosphere.

Daisy Veale is definitely fresh talent and will go far, with hopefully some more events lined up around the island… aside from that, she has the Quiksilver gigs to look forward too!

(FIX IBIZA/ Fri 7th Dec 2012)

Until recently, the island of Ibiza, famed for its music, has been hiding Daisy Veale away from the world– but all that is changing for this local, lovely, young and very talented singer/songwriter. Veale,  has just been chosen as international surf brand Quiksilver’s new musical Ambassador for Spain

The Quiksilver competition enhances young talent by searching for Ambassadors to represent their surfer brand throughout the world, and this year had three categories– singing, styling and photography.

Daisy is now following in the footsteps of local boy and international star, Ben Howard, who is also the official Ambassador for Quiksilver, the results of which have seen him propelled to international fame on the current music scene.

Daisy loves to listen to artists Jack Johnson and Jason Mraz, a fact which is reflected in her surfer image and certainly in her music.

She has also played at the open mic nights at Sandy’s in Santa Eulalia, her first island performance. From loving that first taster of the musical world she has also recently performed at Las Salinas beach, Cala Llenya market, Els Dissables al Mercat Vell and a very successful night at Can Jordi in San Jose. Now, it’s time for her to show Jesús what she’s made of, with the confirmation of her first gig this weekend in the village of the same name. “I have so much love, and feel so attached to this island, I think this shows through my music, and it is something I’d love to be able to share with the rest of Ibiza”

It is therefore with the greatest of pleasure that we present Miss Daisy Veale, live and direct this Sunday 9TH December from 2pm in this winter’s hot-spot of choice, FAB Bar, Ibiza.

Speaking of her weekend gig, Daisy said “Next stop FAB on Sunday! Should be good, it’s a sweet place, I’m really looking forward to it!”

So there you have it, this Sunday from 2 pm, a traditional, mouth-watering roast and a chance to listen to the wonderful up and coming singer Daisy Veale- New Talent in the Making, remember where you heard it first.

Daisy Veale has lived on this beautiful white island of Ibiza practically all her life; enjoying the beautiful paradise we live in, a keen water sports girl! She started off just mucking around in her bedroom, creating lyrics and tunes in which allowed her to express herself which she then performed to her parents for fun, just like every other ordinary teenager who enjoys music… from doing that and now being the Quiksilver Ambassador she has come along way …

Her first real experience of performing live was at the open-mic nights at Sandy’s in Santa Eulalia, she thoroughly enjoyed it, the crowd dancing and clapping away, “ It was really enthusiastic to see how well people responded to my songs, which gave me a lot of confidence” from then on big things would happen to this girl…

And so it did, she performed at our event for Els Dissables al Mercat in which Daisy portrayed her wonderful skills to the public, a duo with a friend from school at Cala Llenya market, a party at Las Salinas beach, to a very successful night at Can Jordi…

After experiencing a couple of events, Daisy Veale knew she wanted to enhance her skills and show the public her ability. This led to the Quiksilver women’s competition, in which she had to produce three videos showing her talent. With this she was listed as the top 3 out of 250 candidates. As you could probably guess she was over the moon by just that achievement, however when she was chosen as the Singer for Quiksilver’s women Ambassador, in which she will be representing Quiksilver and touring around Spain in spring, it was as if a dream had come true “I am so excited to be a part of the Quiksilver team and working with such inspiring people, I just cant believe this is real”

Oh, it’s real alright. This girl is going places…

SAYDIBELLE’S INTERNSHIP FOR FIX IBIZA …SO FAR!

5 months down the line, doing an internship with FIX IBIZA… a well-known PR and Events Management company.  I have decided to write a blog to tell you how it’s going!

 So, how did I get to where I am now!?

Well, it all started last summer, when I was thinking about university choices and my current work experiences… having just moved to Ibiza and with a passion for Media, I decided I wanted to expand my knowledge and see what was out there for me in my new stomping ground of  Ibiza, and that’s when  I got the chance to help at FIX IBIZA… those 2 weeks work experience jam-packed with  events including Ibiza Rocks, Rock ‘N’ Mola and Els Dissabtes Al Mercat Vell showed me what its really like to be part of a PR and Events Management company; and changed my perception on what I wanted to do with my life…

WHICH CHOICE SHOULD I MAKE , UNIVERSITY OR GAP YEAR/ EXPERIENCE?

So, I decided to take a gap year and here I am… I asked FIX IBIZA if they wouldn’t mind taking me on as an intern for a year after I had finished my A-levels, with absolute delight and without hesitation they accepted…

End of June …a step into the real world of work, but… a new, exciting, miraculous experience adventure began…

Jillian once posted to me a quote from ’10 things you should expect in your first PR Job’ … “ When someone says expect the unexpected, slap them in the face and say you didn’t expect that did you?”  Even though this made me laugh, it reflected that I must ‘expect the unexpected’  and face challenges, but that’s what I need …to face any fears and expand my skills.  As tennis player, Arthur Ashe once said; “Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can” …

My first taster of the crazy summer ahead with FIX was the Grand Opening of Ocean Beach Club, whose motto proclaimed, ‘A New Era for San Antonio’ . Assisting at the door with the press was a great way for me to communicate and to build up my confidence… Apart from working , there was also time to be able to enjoy the event, so there I was sitting in VIP with free drinks and classic tunes blaring out from the DJ booth……what more could an 18 year old girl want!? Seriously though, being a part the organisation of such an event and then attending  … I knew I had taken the right choice and would have one hell of a great time ahead…

Secondly, the well-known enterprise Ibiza Rocks. As well as promoting each event, by doing social media updates on Twitter and Facebook, I attended each event FIX IBIZA went to, these were: Ed Sheeran , The Maccabees, Kaiser Chiefs, Ben Howard, Kasabian, Major Lazer, Happy Mondays, Bloc Party, Two Door Cinema Club  and Mark Ronson and Zane Lowe’ … what an experience that was, It was great watching live concerts and getting to know the local press. Chatting to them and finding out what they do was a real insight (Ade Harris, Claire Bradley  (Ibiza-Blog), Mc Crackin(Ibiza Spotlight) Johnny Lee (MixMag/Sundance),Mike Parry (Lucky life TV) and many others.

To get a different aspect of being at the event, working wise, FIX set me up at the closing event with a press pass meaning I could take pictures within press boundaries, which I thoroughly enjoyed! … Not only that, there was an after party at the lovely and unique hotel, ‘Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes’, which I had never really been to before, so it was a great, relaxed, fun experience ! One thing which I will not forget is having a good chit chat to Mark Ronson in Freddie’s Bar ( + picture taken!) …


Throughout the summer ( June- August) a new event was bought to the island from England ‘UK’s biggest indie night’ ‘PROPAGANDA’ which was held at Sankeys and then at Es Paradis… I loved it…it was perfect for my age group,   the music was absolutely great , with DJ’s such as Matt Horne and Nick Grimshaw  from Radio 1 … Meeting Matt Horne aka Gavin from ‘ Gavin and Stacey’ was fun!


Urban in Ibiza (Atzaro) … the coolest urban art I have seen, featuring pieces from Goldie (Goldie himself was even there!) … There was such a nice atmosphere … Live graffiti artists, fashion show, live music… chill out area … superb… being able to help organise the event was an eye-opener, seeing what really goes on with such a big event was really useful, with so many different things going on, it really was magical.


The last event, which I went to in the summer season, was again held at the unique hotel ‘Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes’ – Govert de Roos. This event was a talk, from de Roos himself, a legendary  Rock ‘N’ Roll photographer from Holland. The outcome was a lovely relaxed and interesting evening, with an exhibition of his work, in which you got a real insight of his life and how he got to where he is now… kind of what I’m doing now, but not as extreme !!


Apart from all these wonderful experiences, I have also been in charge of compiling all the Dossiers for each event, which is time consuming but interesting -getting familiar with all the clients and keeping up with media issues, creating a mighty fine database of all FIX IBIZA’S clients, helping out with some press releases, keeping up to date with each event and promoting well known DJs such as ANTZ, assisting at interviews with Goldie and  Govert de Roos, plus general office assistance…

Now that summer 2012 has ended and winter 2012 has come upon us, the last event which was held was the first ever Halloween at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel- ‘VAMP‘… this was extremely fun to organise, making homemade decorations of ghosts and witches legs… sadly I was unable to attend… it looked incredible and I have read great reviews of what an amazing evening everyone had…VAMPIFIED indeed!

Writing this blog, I would like to thank Jillian and Elena considerably for letting me have this opportunity, already it has been seriously, once in a life time experience , couldn’t of imagined this time a year a go I would have been doing this! … Not only have I had all these great experiences but Jillian and Elena have made me feel very welcome and even though they are my super cool bosses, they are  friends too… there have been some funny times…

It is only November and I have many more adventures to come … I cannot wait to see what lies ahead for the upcoming winter and 2013  … I have learnt already heaps … Thanks a million guys… BRING IT ON!!!
