SSR Manchester - The Beautiful North - Paul Heaton visits SSR
The Beautiful North - Paul Heaton visits SSR
Singer-songwriter Paul Heaton recently visited SSR. Paul, who is currently enjoying a successful solo career, was a member of bands 'The Beautiful South' and 'The Housemartins'

Paul popped into SSR to have a look around our new Spirit Studio and transfer some of his new material for future sessions.

Impressed by what he saw, Paul said “I’m looking for somewhere to do my next album, and this is a great room” and with his typical humour added “It’ll be nice to work in a studio that I can ride my bike to!”

Such interest from music icons confirms that, finally, Manchester has a high end, commercial studio, ready to serve the needs of the area.
