BSC is proud to expand its mission and introduce ILTM – a new weekly video series filmed in culturally relevant spaces. I Listen to Memphis is about Memphis music today, the musicians who make it, and the places and culture that fuel it. We are here to inform, inspire, and share the best of Memphis music.
Cedric Burnside is one of the greatest drummers alive today.The Grammy-nominated artist is the living embodiment of the Hill Country blues, learning the music under the watchful ears and eyes of his grandfather, blues legend RL Burnside.
No place exudes as much Memphis mystique and vibe as Royal Studios. Established in 1956, this temple of sound is one of the oldest continuously operated music recording studios in the world. Producer Willie Mitchell, Architect of the Memphis Sound, crafted countless hits for Hi Records in the 60’s and 70’s, including seven, consecutive, gold records for Al Green. The studio carries on today under the talents of Grammy-winner Boo Mitchell and scored another chart-topper with Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk.”
