Behind the Base

In Partnership with Nordoff Robbins

We've teamed up with Notion and Nordoff Robbins to invite the very best of the UK's musical talent to talk about the power music has had on their lives. Giving glimpses into the moments that have made them feel connected, celebrated, or courageous through music - and the one song or album that means the most to them.

Each interview wraps up with an exclusive performance of the track the artist has described their emotional connection with.
