Ever wondered what some of our favourite British musicians would sound like in front of a live 10-piece brass band? The rising online platform BrassHouse have recently unveiled the first episode of their unique music series alongside spiralling artist, Maxi Millz.
Each filmed at the iconic Electric Cinema on Portobello Road in London, BrassHouse have created a nostalgic and picturesque music series that captures the best of British music through a divine framework. Set to feature a boast-worthy lineup of artists for season 1 including Shaybo, Pa Salieu, Miraa May, Kojey Radical, Knucks, Raye, Etta Bond, and Col3trane, R&B crooner Maxi Millz graced the stage for the first episode. Taking place in front of a live audience, each artist is given a 4-song set that consists of 3 live brass renditions of their own songs, plus a cover chosen by them.
Capturing an old-school feel, the red-tinged lens navigates the listener as Maxi Mills graces the stage with his thought-provoking and laid-back sound. Founded by George Davis, the Creative Director of BrassHouse, in partnership with Louis Savage (Disturbing London Records, Sony ATV, Wray & Nephew/Magnum) the Business Director of BrassHouse, the pair have created a never seen before content series that is the perfect fit for any music consumer. Whether you are looking for a slice of escapism from the comfort of your own home, or an avid gig-goer, ‘BrassHouse Presents’ enables your mind to wonder in a dream-like utopia for 15 minutes whilst showcasing an array of quality talent.
Speaking on the concept behind BrassHouse, the founder and Creative Director George Davis explains, “I grew up like most kids of my generation watching music videos on TV; Channel U, MTV Base. One day I watched an episode of MTV ‘Making the Video’ with N.E.R.D for their track ‘Rockstar’ and decided that’s what I wanted to do when I grew up. I started making music videos as a teenager before transitioning into photography and fashion, shooting for brands such as Trapstar, DR Martens and Kurt Geiger, and also becoming the arts director of Dark Circle Clothing. As part of that creative journey, I was inspired along the way by the likes of SBTV who gave people of my culture, in our country a platform, all from a YouTube channel. More recently platforms like Tiny Desk and COLORS have really caught my attention, but I always noticed that the UK didn’t really have an equivalent, so the idea has always been a seed in the back of my mind. The final realisation that I needed to bring a live platform to fruition was when I went to a bar in Birmingham called the Lord Clifton, a New Orleans brass band rendition of ‘Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe’ by Kendrick Lamar was playing and just like that BrassHouse was born.”
As is the case with many business ventures, the stars have had to align to bring the BrassHouse concept to life, as George continues, “I was introduced to my business partner Louis Savage by our mutual friend Jevon because he was looking for art direction and photography for an artist he was managing. I told Louis about the idea, he loved it and said he could help me bring it to life. BrassHouse is my direct contribution and thank you to the culture that has given me so much.” With the aim to inspire viewers whilst streaming inspiration from a multitude of different creative outlets including fashion, photography, film, and life itself, it is the teams desire to create a greater platform that embodies a deeper perception lies at the forefront of BrassHouse.
