David Borrie - CEO & Co-Founder, Pirate Studios
Having grown disillusioned with his 10 years in the Banking sector, he began looking to the areas of his life he enjoyed most, namely his music. Together with a friend they built their first music rehearsal studio in an abandoned police station. Through this studio the concept of self-service rehearsal was born. 1 studio, quickly became 3 as he and his friend developed and tested the idea and are now successfully rolling out the concept across the UK. Whilst he no longer plays in a band, his passion for music has not relented along with his belief that more needs to be done to help musicians in the UK create the music we all love.
