Winner of the World’s Most Prestigious Event Supplier, and with over 20 years at the top of the UK music industry, Urban Soul Orchestra (USO) specializes in recording sessions for top artists, performing at major corporate events, exclusive private parties and weddings.
USO was also invited by English rock band Oasis to perform at their second album launch for (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? As well as for Mariah Carey’s Christmas Party.
Pioneers in the industry, USO Director Stephen Hussey has a long working relationship with Nitin Sawhney, having worked with him on many of his albums; and has also conducted for him at the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall featuring Anoushka Shankar.
With such amazing work under their belt, it’s no surprise that USO was named the World’s Most Prestigious Event Supplier at the Prestigious Star Awards 2016.
We recently had a chance to interview Natasha Beckman (Director) from USO about their fabulous performances.
