Today we proudly present the first instalment of our brand new termly series, Point Blank Live Sessions. Point Blank Live Sessions was created to showcase the amazing student talents on offer at our London school and display the wealth of different creative skillsets, genres and stylistic art forms we host here. If you’d like to learn more about the courses we offer in London, head here.
The idea for PBLS was spearheaded by our Radio students who led a selection and audition process to find a collection of distinctive and diverse acts to partake. This first episode comprises four stand-out acts from our current cohort. From brooding reimaginings of iconic pop songs to pack-a-punch original compositions with super-slick flows, the first session has really set the standard for what’s to come – and exhibits the diverse talent on offer at Point Blank Music School. Tune into Point Blank Live Sessions above.
In the video, hosted by Hannah Ivey and Chris Jacobs from the Radio presenting and production course, we have Singing & Songwriting student Rojas performing an acoustic rendition of Billie Elish’s ‘Bellyache’ followed by a stripped back version of Elvis Presley’s ‘Love Me Tender’. Next Up, Paleblu from the BA (Hons) MPSE course delivers two originals – the soothing ‘Do I Really Know You’ and the electrifying UK hip-hop cut, ‘Half Awake’. The third artist, Tasha, from the Singing & Songwriting course makes Britney Spears’ ‘Toxic’ her own before reimagining Vance Joy’s ‘Riptide’. Finally, Daniel Sabaterr from the BA (Hons) MPSE degree closed the show with his hypnotising originals; ‘Stay’ and ‘Over’.
Point Blank Live Sessions was recorded in Studio 1 at our Orsman Road facilities using our world-class equipment including our SSL Duality Desk and live studio which was customised for the occasion. These sessions will be released on a termly basis so be sure to keep an eye on our social channels for regular updates.
