The Backstage with Robert Emery Podcast
Robert Emery talks to David Miller, American Tenor who is a member of the successful classical crossover group Il Divo, who has sold over 28 million copies worldwide. David talks about the challenges of being on tour, recording albums and how he believes that living 'in the now' is the biggest factor of his success and happiness. And of course, he answers a quick-fire round of questions culminating in the big question; The White House or Buckingham Palace?
Since his Broadway role as Rodolfo in Baz Luhrmann’s version of Puccini’s La Boheme, David's career has skyrocketed like most musicians could only dream of. This chat is an excellent, in depth conversation which covers much more than the music industry.

This episode is bought to you with the help of Lat56. Lat56 are a sharp, smart and efficient baggage company that help you take off relaxed, and arrive ready to take on the world. In 2011 I completed 122 flights, and without their NASA-spec materials making such a solid travel system, the hours spent with my luggage being thrown from one plane to another would have caused me a big headache.
With their bold and strong aesthetics, they make no compromises to achieve the balance between performance and style. With a lifetime guarantee, you'll be safe in the knowledge that their products will stand the test of time. When I bought my first travel bag from them, they only sold their flagship garment bag; an ingenious suit carrier that's stylish, compact and crucially for me going from gig to gig, didn't crease the suits. Since then, they have branched out to carry-on luggage, backpacks, duffel bags, laptop bags and even washbags!
I'd only mention the company if I used and approved of them, and I do both. And you know what, the thing I love about them the most, is that after seven years of wear and tear, my first bag still looks as new as the backpack I bought six months ago. So if you're a busy traveller and want something that is stylish and secure, click here to grab yourself something special.
