[LIVE PERFORMANCE] Maxi Millz: BrassHouse Presents

British R&B artist Maxi Millz has just shared a stunning live show as part of rising online platform BrassHouse. 
BrassHouse is a project that includes a live 10-piece brass band with the aim to create a nostalgic and picturesque music series that captures the best of British music through a divine framework. The first artist to grace the stage for the first episode (filmed at the iconic Electric Cinema on Portobello Road in London) was R&B crooner Maxi Millz who performed a 4-song set that consists of 3 live brass renditions of his own songs, plus a cover chosen by him. I am loving the old-school feel of the performance and how polished the band and Maxi's vocals are. Definitely a great show perfect for R&B and brass lovers, as well as any live music fan. Check it out below!



Speaking on the concept behind BrassHouse, the founder and Creative Director George Davis explains,
I grew up like most kids of my generation watching music videos on TV; Channel U, MTV Base. One day I watched an episode of MTV ‘Making the Video’ with N.E.R.D for their track ‘Rockstar’ and decided that’s what I wanted to do when I grew up. I started making music videos as a teenager before transitioning into photography and fashion, shooting for brands such as Trapstar, DR Martens and Kurt Geiger, and also becoming the arts director of Dark Circle Clothing. As part of that creative journey, I was inspired along the way by the likes of SBTV who gave people of my culture, in our country a platform, all from a YouTube channel. More recently platforms like Tiny Desk and COLORS have really caught my attention, but I always noticed that the UK didn’t really have an equivalent, so the idea has always been a seed in the back of my mind. The final realisation that I needed to bring a live platform to fruition was when I went to a bar in Birmingham called the Lord Clifton, a New Orleans brass band rendition of ‘Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe’ by Kendrick Lamar was playing and just like that BrassHouse was born.”
