Half a chicken with a side of extra hot tunes, please mate? ?
That’s right, Nando’s has opened up a free-to-use music studio at its Frith Street branch in Soho. This new recording space is fitted with state of the art equipment, including a very spicy Neumann U87 microphone. (See more free things to do in London.)
Anyone who uses the studio will be in clear view of restaurant diners, but that’s exactly the sort of pressure and attention you’re going to have to deal with if you become an all star producer, artist or DJ. Right?
This hot new opening coincides with the fourth anniversary of Nando’s Music Exchange – a programme inspiring the exchange of global music influences, by way of workshops, mentoring and events, which has seen the likes of Stormzy and Ella Eyre mentoring young artists. Now that ain’t no lemon & herb… (I’m not even sure what I mean by this, but just roll with it).
The studio will be open 5 days a week and you can apply for a spot here. There’ll also be a whole host of different expert and artist-led workshops held at the studio throughout the year.
