Institute of Contemporary Music Performance vocal Degree student, Raphaella is continuing to impress the Roundhouse contingent originally being selected for the EMI/Roundhouse 30:30 Project. In September 2010 she was given the opportunity to record her original song ‘Cupid’s Arrow’ in the EMI studio with producer Joe Fields, which was then released on Roundhouse Records as part of the 30:30 Album.
Following the success of Raphaella’s recording the Roundhouse has invited her to be part of the Roundhouse Rising Festival, with the Un-Convention Factory on the 26th Feb. She has been selected as one of the six artists that will be recreating The Clash’s iconic album- London’s Calling, covering ‘I’m Down’, with 25,000 free downloads of the cover made available that day. Running alongside the recording, music industry experts and BBC Radio presenters will be holding debates and panel discussions throughout the day with the whole event open to the public.
Raphaella comments: ‘Over the past few months I’ve been lucky enough to take part in some really exciting events such as the Hard Rock Cafe gig with the Institute, BMI, Gibson and SAE, a number of the Roundhouse projects, and even put on my own charity gig as part of the degree course at Bush Hall. My advice is take advantage of every opportunity because you never know where they may lead!’
