Yesterday marked a special day for team Trackd as Trident Studios was awarded a Blue Plaque by BBC London with the British Plaque Trust.

Trident Studios was launched by Trackd‘s CEO Russell Sheffield‘s late father Norman in 1968, which went on to become one of the world’s leading recording studios with the very first 8-track mixing desk.

The studio at St Anne’s Court in Soho, London, was the birth place of David Bowie’s renowned albums Ziggy Stardust and Hunky Dory, as well as some other best known artists of the time you may have heard of… Queen, The Beatles and Elton John, to name a few(!).

The plaque was unveiled yesterday by broadcaster Robert Elms, singer songwriter Billy Bragg and Bowie’s lifelong friend and artist George Underwood, who also designed some of his album covers.


Forty seven plaques were awarded to mark people or places that have influenced the musical landscape across the country and were unveiled on BBC Music Day.
