Good news, Brits! CONVERSE Inc. will be bringing their Converse Rubber Tracks program, which offers free recording time to selected local musicians, to London at the top of 2015. Converse Rubber Tracks London will launch on January 10 in Haringey with 10 days of free recording time for a select number of London artists (apply here), followed by a free concert series featuring a marquee headliner and a local opening act, chosen from those who recorded at the studio. After Haringey, it will rotate through the rest of the boroughs— Ealing, Southwark, and Tower Hamlets.
"We are excited to bring Converse Rubber Tracks to the UK with the London program being one of our most exciting music initiatives to date," said Jed Lewis, Converse Global Music Marketing Director. "This is the first time we're doing this – taking the Converse Rubber Tracks experience to multiple regions in a larger music city over an extended period of time. The city boasts an incredible music heritage and roster of emerging artists, and we hope to support the local music scene through this long-term platform."
