This week we have our second member of the Downes Braide association, singer, songwriter and record producer Chris Braide. Braide’s writing credits are an extraordinary catalogue of some of the world’s most well-known, creative and successful artists. Braide has worked with Beyonce, Britney Spears, Lana Del Rey, Sia Marc Almond, Beth Ditto and many, many more. I have worked with Braide before on album covers for DBA but this was the first time we have had a proper chance to sit down and discuss ideas and creativity. I found it amazing the parallels between our two processes, both creative but one audio, one visual. I hope you take as much inspiration from this conversation as I did and enjoy it as much too.
