About the project

Started by Nucleus Arts in conjunction with Jamie Johnson, Riverside One Studios is a new music project in Chatham, Kent.

Jamie Johnson is a local singer/songwriter from Gillingham, Kent who appeared on national TV as Kylie Minogue’s finalist on The Voice in 2014.

Jamie’s experience has inspired him to help aspiring musicians. Our plan is to try to help anyone who has a passion for music and wishes to find the next step to building a career in the music industry or just some friendly advice on what they can do to improve. 

Many of you may remember the Riverside One building as the council venue on Dock Road, next to the bus station. A really great location as you can see it from the new bus station and it’s only a 5 minute walk from the train station.

The idea behind the studios is to have a place where anyone can come together to write, rehearse and record music. We are also able to offer teaching, mentoring and other sessions that support budding musicians in Medway.

Riverside One has 1 small rehearsal/writing room, 1 large recording/rehearsal/performance space and 1 main control studio room with the facilities to record a single or an album. 

Jamie says – “When I was 14 I knew I wanted to make music my full time career, but I didn’t know what to do to get there or what to do next. Even though I had so much support from family, friends and the local public I didn’t know how to go about it until I was thrown in at the deep end a good few years later- and then had to teach myself a lot."

“I’m sure many people would agree that the music scene is not what it could be around Medway, and it would be cool to see it grow bigger again. Bands can come and rehearse and at the same time socialise with other musicians making contacts and setting up gigs, or even come along for a writing or small rehearsal session in one of the smaller rehearsal booths.

Riverside One Studios also works with people who may be at risk of social exclusion as part our "Art Inclusive" programme. This currently involves a joint project with The Princes Trust, where together we are offering young people in unemployment the opportunity to learn more about making music and the music industry. Contact us to find out more.

Our aim is to motivate and inspire using creativity. Nucleus Arts has a long history of successfully working with various groups in Medway through the Arts, and we will use this knowledge and experience to deliver the same level of service for music and recording with Jamie’s help.

We have had offers from producers, songwriters and local companies, all donating their time and expertise to get this project off the ground.  We are also able to offer music lessons including guitar and singing lessons, please get in touch if you would like further details.
