Tom Grennan Partners with PlayStation For Virtual Reality Performance

Tom Grennan

Budding vocalist and Guinness World Record-holder Tom Grennan has taken part in the pioneering programme put together by Sony. The company have teamed up two of their subsidiaries Sony Music and Sony Interactive Entertainment to create an immaculate virtual reality live music performance, available to those with PlayStation VR.

Grennan, who is signed to Sony Music-owned Insanity Records, spent a day in a green room where he and his band were individually recorded with 3D cameras. Their silhouettes were then projected into Metropolis Studios for their “live” performance which fans can enjoy from the front row no matter where they are.

They were recorded performing two tracks from his critically acclaimed debut album Lighting Matches: ‘Royal Highness’ and ‘Found What I’ve Been Looking For’.

Grennan said “I’ve always been a fan of PlayStation. Hearing my tracks on the games I play is mad enough, so getting to be involved in something as big and new as this is even madder. VR technology has developed so much, so to be a part of that is wicked. It was really fun to film on the green screen, you really feel like you’re in the room with me and the band. I think my fans are going to love it. I can’t wait for people to see it and get a feel for what my performance is like from their living room!”
