It’s a very exciting day at Creative Nation Towers! Two of our talent have come together to release an E.P, and today is the day they send it out into the World!
Our talent invariably have personal passion projects on the go alongside their work on behalf of our clients. Bearing in mind that our Secret Service is so busy this year (and we cannot share this work in public), we thought it would be good to start to share our passion projects with you, so you can get to know us better!
The Standing are singer/songwriter Lisa Fitzgibbon, Pro7ect Creative Director & renowned PowerFolkstress. Lisa has shared stages with musical legends such as Ani Di Franco, Arlo Guthrie, Roger McGuinn and Chris Difford. Producer AJ is better known for his art direction work on music videos, including Coldplay, Vanessa Mae, East 17 and Drugstore.
The Standing’s debut E.P. release is remixed by award winning composer and producer Ben Rosen. Ben has written, produced and performed works for Universal, Virgin, Interscope and Atlantic records on worldwide platinum selling albums with Marilyn Manson, Nikka Costa, Unwritten Law, 8MM and Grinspoon.
The Standing were born at a ‘speed-dating’ event designed to bring together musicians and producers, hosted by The London Remixed Festival. Lisa and AJ went on to produce their work together remotely, utilising technology, with only a couple of face to face sessions in the studio- a thoroughly modern production!
The name was inspired by Erdem Gunduz, the Turkish performance artist turned protester, who was dubbed the “standing man” after he led a vigil in Taksim Square during the Turkish protests of 2013.
The Standing’s music is a dark and moody meeting of folk and electronica- take a look, have a listen and please share. The E.P can be purchased here on Itunes.
