Be Scene And Heard the project was inspired by a young deaf man named Owen Brindley who asked Nottingham music promoter Will Robinson if he could sign at one of his 'I'm Not From London' gigs. Will asked Owen to leave it with him and looked about for some bands to help make this happen and realised that his and many more gigs could be excluding deaf people. This lead to I'm Not From London creating the " Be Scene And Heard " Youth Music funded project which put groups of hearing and deaf people together to make music and music videos.
Whilst promoting this project, Nottingham Magazine, Leftlion journalist Trevor Easton aka Bassey liked the idea so much he asked if he could audition Owen to join his band. Owen agreed and this is the first single 'Touched". The video features members of the "Be Scene And Heard" crew signing the lines. Buy on iTunes and stream on Spotify now!
