Beardyman launches ‘Sheer Volume’
Legendary multi-vocalist, instrumentalist, live-looping pioneer and producer Beardyman is about to embark on his most ambitious project yet.
Launching on Friday 7th February 2020, ‘Sheer Volume’ will see Beardyman release 52 singles over the course of a year. This will be accompanied by videos, a weekly cross-platform live-stream and a monthly podcast. The first single will go live on Friday 31st January. For the stirring Liquid Drum and Bass anthem that is “Every End Is A Beginning”
Whilst the idea of writing, recording, producing and releasing a single along with a video every single week sounds insane and would give most artists and labels the fear. Beardyman’s realisation is it plays to his personal strengths.
Beardyman explains “My own creativity is best fuelled by constant deadlines rather than one big looming one. As Leonardo Da Vinci wrote, A piece of art is never finished, merely abandoned and I find it difficult knowing when to stop and draw a line, especially in the absence of a deadline. The rabbit hole is not an option for me creatively and this level of publicly shared deadlines helps me find that sweet spot before you start getting diminishing returns and hit mix version 86…or higher… I know this is the rate with Sheer Volume where I can produce the best stuff and work together with my jazz brain”.
