THE Tailormade – who were crowned the ‘Best Buskers in London’ by Mayor Boris Johnson – visited King’s Ely Senior on May 13th.
The band worked with our Year 9 students who are studying GCSE Music next year, Year 10 GCSE Music students and Year 12 A Level Music students. The focus of the day was songwriting and they explored the various different levels to writing a great song; themes, lyrics, structure, melody and harmony.
Students split up into 3 groups and worked together to create a song from scratch. The end result was really special and culminated in a performance off all the songs!
The Tailormade are an energetic, straight talking mix of 3 young singer/songwriters. Their friendship formed first then their passion for Music led to them towards creating a new vibrant British sound.
The lads have supported the likes of Blue, Rebecca Ferguson, CeeLo Green, Lemar, Will Young and Busted… performing to over 20,000 people at Pride in London’s Trafalgar Square, as well as being invited to perform at The Brit Awards last year.
They recently released their debut EP “Thoughts, Fears and Beers” at London’s O2 Academy. Their debut EP charted at No.5 in the Itunes charts and they recently sold out the O2 Islington Academy 2.
