Music Recording at The Rosebowl.

13.50 01/07/14. posted by Karmel Edmonds 0 comments

The Rosebowl centre has nurtured a number of young performers over the years, whether this has led to fame and notorioty, an inner sense of wellbeing or simply an elevated sense of self confidence - Music at The Rosebowl has touched a number of young people and produced some excellent results.

We talked to Troy Fletcher - James, one of the young artists currently using The facilities to explore himself musically and asked him about his most recent track and what he thought of The Rose Bowl.


What I love about Rose bowl is that it is a place for the youth to express and develop themselves creatively and almost escape from the world for a period of time, i book music sessions daily which Involve working alongside producer MK and also having my own session in the studio allowing me to apply skills I've learned to create music. 



 I was singing from a young age and always found it something that kept me spirited and i had good ability at. As I got older I found music making programmes on my computer and just played out with the sounds and samples till I discovered producing is an area I feel passionate about. Then I developed my songwriting craft and playing with words - writing hooks for precious college showcases and understood being a vocalist and songwriter is my calling and is what I'm aiming to pursue under the name 'tigertroy'. 

The track recently uploaded to HHyoutharts soundcloud  'bipolar' is all about self-negativity; being delusional by your own personality and finding means of sanity. It's a track that means a lot coz it has deep meaning to me and also it has like loads of different sounds - almost like different personalities.

Listen to TigerTroy new track on our soundcloud here

The Rose Bowl is based in islington and offers free music production tutoring as well as free Production room space for 14- 19 year olds, Monday to Friday. Call 020735443524 and ask to book a session in with Dom.
