Meet the Team

  • Rae Laverick

    Rae Laverick | General Manager

    Multi talented show-off....This rare and elusive creature is not often seen on the shop floor, preferring to rule from the safety of her batcave. But when she does emerge, she brings forth knowledge of all things musical, from guitar and drums to the world of hi-tech.

  • Will Everett

    Will Everett | Guitar Specialist

    Will has been part of Leicester’s Music retail scene since time began (or at least as long as any of us can remember). A stunning guitar player and all-round wonderful human being, give him a shout if you need help or advice with anything guitar or amp related. Will also enjoys horses, motorbikes and long walks in the countryside… so feel free to call him about any of those things too.

  • Becky - Music Junkie

    Becky Laverick | Administrator

    The woman in charge of all that is web or admin related, hired so we have someone that can use excel without their head exploding.You’ll also find her helping out in the guitar department and she has a Masters in Biomedical Sciences and Policy, Communication and Ethics, so if you’ve got any questions about that kind of thing she can help you out as well.

  • Lewis - Music Tech Specialist, Music Junkie

    Lewis Beighton | DJ and Tech Product Specialist

    By far the coolest member of staff we have acquired so far, if he’s not in the studio producing you’ll find him at one several clubs he DJ’s at around Leicester… he’s always at Basement on a Tuesday night, so give him a wave (buy him drink) if you see him. If you need advice on studio gear, DJing, or cutting your trousers to the perfect length to show just the right amount of ankle - he’s the guy to call.

  • Kyle Palmer - Music Product Specialist, Music Junkie

    Kyle Palmer | Drum and Tech Product Specialist

    Kyle is our resident drum and hi-tech genius, he’s spent the last few years drumming in various original bands around Leicester and also spends time recording records bands in his purpose built studio in Leicester. So if you want to start recording or want a new drum kit, he’s the man to talk too. Random Kyle fact number one… he’s so bad at computer games that he didn’t even get past the title screen of Assassin's creed syndicate but he is allegedly quite good at Fifa.
