Nando’s Launch Free-To-Use Studio For Aspiring Artists | Music News
How about recording a ‘Hot 16’ while waiting for your Hot Peri-Peri Chicken? Never thought one would see the day when this gets said but apparently, Today is the day! The beloved restaurant chain Nando’s is building on years of fueling the music industry backstage by officially opening its first in-restaurant recording studio ever.
Based visibly in Soho, London in their Frith Street restaurant, the brand new studio offers professional equipment for budding producers, artists and DJs ready to ‘turn the heat up’ in the most unlikely but well familiar restaurant’s surroundings. For no charge at all, those who receive the chance to will benefit from an in-house studio engineer and industry standard equipment.
The opening comes as the world-famous restaurant enter their fourth year of Nando’s Music Exchange, a programme which inspires the exchange of global music influences through mentoring, workshops and big events. As part of this, which has seen the likes of Stormzy and Ella Eyre mentor young artists, the new studio will stage music workshops throughout the year.
A spokesperson from Nando’s said: “We’re really excited to open our first music space, both for our growing network of artists but also for our fans looking for a unique experience in restaurant. Some of the best ideas have started over PERi-PERi (or so we’re told), so we’re looking forward to hearing what happens when we bring together chicken and tunes!”
Nando’s studio is open five days a week. If you or anyone you know would like the chance to try out the facilities, head here and apply. Have a look at some pictures of the new studio!
