Burberry and Bowers & Wilkins are committed to unearthing new British musical talent. So together, we conceived Live for Burberry, where four unsigned artists had the opportunity to record great music in the legendary RAK studios. The amazing results are available every two weeks from June 13th via Society of Sound as high-resolution downloads.
London’s legendary RAK is a wonderful recording
environment. A recent winner of Studio of the
Year, it was founded by hit-maker Mickie Most,
and built its reputation on seminal recordings
including Radiohead’s The Bends and Paul
McCartney’s Mull of Kintyre.
Recorded by renowned producer Kevin
Bacon, the Live for Burberry sessions used
a Soundfield microphone array, which is
able to capture the true sound of the artist
in the space, and is capable of delivering
an incredibly intimate, life-like recording.
Singer-songwriter George Cosby performed his first
track for Burberry Acoustic back in January 2015.
He is influenced by Jeff Buckley, Eddie Vedder and
Bon Iver, and has already been marked out by the
tastemakers at Indie Shuffle as ‘an almost certain
one to watch in 2016’.
Rosie Carney is steadily growing a
passionate following. She lives in Ireland, gathering
inspiration from the beautifully rugged landscape that
surrounds her, and has an amazing ability to dissect
and make others’ stories into beautifully heartfelt
songs. All delivered in a truly beautiful voice.
Ten Tonnes may only be 19, but his Blues-infused
words and music, sound wise beyond his years.
He was inspired to pick up the guitar at an early
age because of his love of The Beatles, Dylan
and The Smiths.
Being discouraged from watching TV as a child was
integral to the development of Fenne Lily’s musicality,
as instead much of her time was spent writing songs
and honing both instrumental and lyrical skill. Her
folk-tinged music is woven with integrity and sincerity.
