I cheated. On my iPhone with a Samsung Galaxy S6. Admittedly, it was a one night stand and I have to say the performance impressed me.
Especially the camera quality, the beauty mode (hello, pretty) and various other options. Cool.
Three UK, rated by YouGov the most reliable network presented us their recently launched their 4G SuperVoice which has a better coverage – even in the depths of Roundhouse – and allows us to make call via 4G.
Using a complete different handset was easier than I thought; the network didn’t fail me and I manage to social network away!
Three took me for an exclusive tour of the iconic music venue Roundhouse, in Camden, London, to find out more about their great work with young creatives, who can use the studios in the Paul Hamlyn Roundhouse studios to develop their talents, be it music, TV, radio, performing arts and much more.
Young artists can join courses, programmes or hire studios and equipment for very affordable fees.
If you are between 17 and 25, and want to develop your talents, get in touch with Roundhouse to check out their offer, they have a fab support system to help you thrive!
Three partnered up with the Joe Strummer Foundation for this event. We visited the Strummerville studio, which has some original Joe Stummer lyrics on the wall and also heard about the foundation charitable work and were invited to The Monarch for an intimate performance by two of their recently signed artist: Lyza Jane and Bless.
Lyza Jane is singer, songwriter and producer, but also a lovely bright little thing with the kind of singing voice I like: soft, almost raspy, lingering and striking. She sings from emotions, has supported Alabama 3 and has been going solo for about three years.
She also performed in Glasto at the Rabbit Hole a few times! Definitely one to watch out.
The other act was a band, Bless, which has a heavier sound and I caught myself dancing(ish) along to.
The guys are great fun, we had a fab chat; it is amazing to talk about what inspires their creations, the process in a group and the sudden suggestion of shots!
They all know each other from a long time, were in different bands before and decided to do music together in January.
They’ve been touring France and will have their first London gig on the 11 December at the Monarch. You can check out their site for dates.
Overall, a great night! Thanks Three UK for having me and for the AMAZING furry hand selfie stick I came home with.
