Penfriend's Letterbox

(formerly Attention Engineer)

I'm Laura Kidd, an independent music producer, songwriter and visual artist based in Nottingham, UK, making music as Penfriend (formerly She Makes War and Obey Robots). My mission is to encourage creativity in others by sharing my artistic process, plus thoughts on the philosophy of creativity. In my first podcasting era 2019-2021 I interviewed 50 of my favourite artists and comedians for my "Attention Engineer" episodes. I asked nosey questions about creativity, grit and determination and received some surprising answers... In 2024 I missed podcasting so much I decided to start sharing here in a different way.
