The History of Pepper St. Studio

 

JR initially worked with carpenter Lloyd Pottinger to transform the rented space into a music studio. The pair nicknamed the job 'Project Noah's Arch' as JR was sourcing materials from unconventional sources, whilst on a shoe-string budget.

After a month of scraping to get by, JR had the good fortune of meeting Howard. It was a hot and sunny afternoon, whilst strolling along Millharbour Road, that JR came across two colossal towers sticking out against the clear blue sky. It was here, on the Ballymore, Wardian site that Howard came to know of the Pepper St. Studio project. 

JR had initially approached the building site in hope of sourcing some unwanted pieces of timber, but the conversation soon sparked a kindred vision that they both had for a better community, by supporting young people. 

 

Howard came to see the half-finished building site that was the beginning of Pepper St Studio, and decided to support what was happening through Ballymore.  

With the generous support from Howard and Ballymore, the studio build was complete, and beyond anything JR had imagined possible, in just weeks. 

 

The studio opened on August 16th and launched with a free music production programme for the YoungStars. A group of 12-13 year-olds produced some impressive beats, after their first lesson in music production, led by tutor and music producer LiveMore. The YoungStars produced their very own three track EP; you can listen via our music page.
