GPWW Presents Neneh Cherry // Blank Project
May 19, 2014
Swedish singer/songwriter Neneh Cherry came over to the Brownswood Basement last month to perform ‘Blank Project’ live at Boiler Room alongside Rocket Number Nine, and whilst she was here, we grabbed her for a quick chat.
In this podcast, whilst the boys are sound-checking next door, Neneh discusses the Blank Project’s inception and the unusual surroundings in which it was recorded, how she first connected with Kieran Hebden/Four Tet and the Rocket Number Nine guys, and talks about the role her father, legendary musician Don Cherry, played in her own musical development.
