There is nothing better than chilling on your sofa and listening to your favourite album or a good playlist. So, we thought why not replicate this but with live music.
Music is often referred to as the universal language, it resonates with everyone around the world, breaking down barriers and bringing people together; creating a sense of community, identity and escapism.
We want to support and celebrate upcoming musical talent by hosting a new series of monthly live lounge-esc Instagram live streams. We hope to give the artists a platform to share their music to a new audience with the aim of bringing together and entertaining our own community.
We will handpick a selection of artists and broadcast a 30 minute live stream once a month, completely free and solely for your enjoyment. In return, all we ask is that you head over to the artist’s Instagram profile and give them a follow if you like what you hear.
