Who’s been filming at St Matthias?
St Matthias Church is becoming known as a cool place to hold musical events and THE place to record around here because of its fabulous acoustic.
Most recently we have played host to concert pianists, rock bands, indie singer songwriters, community choirs and African fusion bands.
We were thrilled to meet multi-award winning film composer and pianist Nico Casal (whose credits include the score for the 2016 Oscar winning short film Stutterer) when he filmed a solo-piano video of his stunning track It’s Fine, But It Hurts at St Matthias. He has just released his first album Alone – watch him performing the track at St Matthias here
Nico is embarking on a short UK tour – catch him in person in London on Piano Day March 29 at the Purcell Room on the South Bank. Tickets £15
And London-based singer songwriter Kaine Francesco filmed Lovely People from his new album Up High, an eclectic mix of baroque acoustic and electro-pop.
Other performers include African fusion band The Ganda Boys, folk pop singer Hattie Whitehead, and classical singer Daniel Thomson, who said: “St Matthias Church was a wonderful church to sing in! As well as being a beautiful, it had a brilliant acoustic, excellent lighting and good heating. It was really ideal for recording in as there was zero traffic noise from outside. I would definitely use this venue again for future recordings.”
