Chicken and tunes: Nando’s has opened a music studio in London

Spicy beats ahoy...

Nando’s has opened a music studio at one of their main London restaurants, giving budding musicians the chance to lay down their own tracks while chowing down on chicken.

The studio has been opened at Nando’s in Frith Street, Soho, and will give successful applicants the chance to record their own music with the help of an in-house studio engineer and pioneering equipment including a Neumann U87 microphone.

Other equipment on offer at the studio includes an Apple iMac which has been equipped with Waves Platinum Bundle, a leading recording software package.

The huge venture comes after the hugely popular restaurant previously launched Nando’s Music Exchange, a programme which inspires the exchange of global music influences through mentoring and workshops from leading artists including Stormzy and Ella Eyre.

“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!”, a Nando’s spokesperson said.

The studio is open five days a week and all potential artists can apply for their place here.
