It was very special hearing Rotosound strings on stage again with the Pink Floyd drummer as they performed Barrett-era songs at the legendary Fairfield Halls.
An visceral cocktail of surf guitar, punk energy and psychedelic world music, Let The Festivities Begin! is the debut album from London-based Los Bitchos. After finding an affinity with Rotosound strings, the girls invited us down to celebrate a special performance at the official launch party.
21-year old Rosie Frater-Taylor’s “Bloom” blurs the lines between jazz, folk, pop and soul. It’s a melting pot of Joni Mitchell, Pat Metheny, Lewis Taylor, and Emily King, with a side helping of John Mayer.
A rising star on the explosive London jazz scene, Isobella Burnham has pulled together the top players on the scene for EP Dancin’ Garuda. Rotosound strings are to be heard exclusively on this record from both Burnham’s bass and Tom Ford’s electric guitar.
The past year has been a strange one for us all – not least for full-time gigging musicians. The pause on live events has changed the rhythm of how often a pro’s instrument is picked up, which got us thinking that our long-life Nexus Acoustic strings might be the perfect choice for guitars that get strummed less often.
With Nexus on our mind, we spoke to one of our Rotosound Players who trusts in our coated strings to keep their tone night-after-night during a busy gigging schedule.
