SSR London - Audio student Sophie Grant releases first album
Audio student Sophie Grant releases first album
SSR Audio Engineering student and winner of the first Ian Brown Scholarship Sophie Grant has released her first album.
Sophie produced and engineered the EP at Studio Plateaux.

The album “Swamp Sessions” features tracks from 5 bands who, with shared equipment, passion and drive, got together to record an EP on a secluded island in the Thames. The tracks are a mix of classic punk and grungy sounds reminiscent of the 90’s Sub Pop compilation EPs.

The recording and mix were done over the same weekend. Sophie who was one of the 3 record producers working on the album describes the whole experience:

SSR Student Sophie Grant
“We gave the bands each a 2hr block. In the mix I quite simply wanted to produce a great live exciting performance. The whole weekend was fast moving but really fantastic.”

Sophie has been working with some of the artists and bands for a long time and recently one of the bands has been recording here in SSR’s Camden studios.

SSR London Head of Audio Jonathan Espinosa:
“We are really proud of Sophie’s first album; this is a real achievement for her after just 6 months on the course. She approached the whole project in a highly professional manner and her mix allowed the excitement of the live performance to really shine through, not always an easy thing.”
