For the last six months I have been working on my creative musical skills as part of the Girls Rock London Album Programme!!! Girls Rock London (GRL!) is an award-winning not-for-profit organisation that creates opportunities for women, girls, and trans and non-binary people to make and perform music. They provide high-quality music programming for young and adult women, trans, and non-binary people, with a specific focus on increasing access for people who face barriers to participation. Learn more about GRL here. The GRL album programme involves individuals coming together and taking part in a series of creative workshops and inspiration sessions. We ultimately form bands together and work on songs to release in the first ever GRL album!
This has been a truly inspirational experience, where I have had the opportunity to build on my bass guitar skills acquired long ago and learn to express ourselves through music. Whilst I have always loved to play the bass since picking it up in my teens, I made the mistake to give it up when I went to university. GRL is such a supportive community with so much scope for collaboration, developing and realising musical ideas. Now, as the bassist for our band, The Confusion Dilemma, we have written and composed our very own song recorded in a recording studio in London. Our very first live gig will take place in the Signature Brew music venue in Haggerston in London on 25th February 2023!!! Learn more about GRL here. Rock on from the recording studio!!
UPDATE! : The official GRL Compilation#1 album has now been released and our song Pacifist Piranha is available on Bandcamp here!
