Galloway Studio and Lay Bare Recordings present their first release: Kintsugi Empire - 'Shun', a collaboration release under the moniker of Sound of Niche

The concept of Sound of Niche is the brainchild of Sebastiaan van Bijlevelt of Galloway Studio and Désirée Hanssen of the Dutch boutique Record Label Lay Bare Recordings. 

Sound of Niche (SoN) is based on a unique collaboration platform, which offers different artists from different creative fields the opportunity to collaborate and present their work. It is a promising initiative that promotes collaboration and expands the reach of artists to a broader audience.

Together with multi-instrumentalist and the driving force behind Kintsugi Empire, Pieter Holkenborg, the Dutch film & photographer Maaike Ronhaar and graphic designer and visual artist Jop Luberti, we have created a vinyl record that is enriched with authentic Obi design and striking analogue photos that refer to each song.


SHUN will be shipped around April 30th.
