Liverpool Virtual Studio Launches ‘On the Docks’ Livestream Sessions Showcasing Local Musicians

Transmission Studio, a new state-of-the-art virtual studio at the city’s Brunswick Dock, is set to host the first in a series of ‘On the Docks’ livestream sessions this evening (1 May) from 8pm. The virtual gig features a carefully curated line-up of talented local musicians including The Kowloons, Fiona Lennon, Harry McKenny, Paul Askew, Tasha Carlee and Nat Kelly

The ‘On the Docks’ acoustic sessions, which are designed to provide a virtual stage for emerging artists to showcase their music to a global audience, will be broadcast from Transmission Studio by local livestreaming and virtual events specialist, Virtuopo. The company’s professional camera crew and experienced production team will deliver a broadcast quality livestream to TikTok, where viewers can watch the virtual gig free of charge.

Shining a spotlight on six up-and-coming musicians, ‘On the Docks’ features a 15 minute set from each artist as they perform live in the virtual studio. There will also be short interviews taking place between performances to allow viewers to learn more about the artists on the bill. 

Speaking on the launch of ‘On the Docks’, Founder of Transmission Studio and Virtuopo, Chris Holmes, said: “Our ‘On the Docks’ livestream sessions will give emerging artists a chance to reach a huge global audience as they perform in a professional studio setting. We’re excited to be supporting local musicians by providing a virtual stage at Transmission Studio, as well as a skilled production crew to deliver a high quality livestream and a viewing experience that will be on a par with a TV broadcast.

“It’s a brilliant line-up for the first session and we’re looking forward to livestreaming regular virtual gigs throughout the year. I would encourage anyone who is passionate about new music to tune in to discover our pick of talented emerging artists and to hear some exceptional performances.”   

Ant Ng, who regularly plays at music venues across the city with his band, The Kowloons, said: “As a young band, this is an incredible opportunity to have our music heard far and wide. Of course, artists can livestream on their own channels using their own equipment, but taking part in ‘On the Docks’ means we have a professional production crew looking after the sound, lighting and cameras, which leaves us to focus on our music.   

“We always love playing to a local crowd at the likes of The Jacaranda, The Shipping Forecast and EBGBS, so we hope our followers will support us and the rest of the artists involved in ‘On the Docks’. Playing a virtual gig like this is a great way for us to reach a much bigger audience and we can’t wait to be part of it!” 

The recently opened Transmission Studio, which is available for corporate hire, hosts a wide range of virtual events and live broadcasts from influencer livestreams and podcasts to conferences and product launches. The virtual studio features broadcast quality lighting, a fixed gallery, remote production facilities, a green room, a dressing room and catering space. It has already been used for a number of exciting projects including a global conference for a Premier League football club. 

‘On the Docks’ will be livestreamed on TikTok, in partnership with content production company Eklectics, from 8pm on Wednesday 1 May. Search beawesomemusictv on TikTok to watch.
