Hot Butter Soul Collective
(HBSC) is a professional London-based
gospel choir who usually collaborate with a human beatboxer
percussionist) to produce
stunningly original acapella
covers from any
musical genre.

Their manager Breck Marsom first combined gospel singers with
beatboxer to perform for the top London department store
Selfridges during Christmas 2005,
helped by
Vula Malinga, lead
singer of Grammy-winners Basement Jaxx, and the multi-talented
Richard Lianhart.
HBSC has been invited back numerous times

Besides offering anything from uplifting acapella party music to
gentle wedding music or from opening award ceremonies or
fashion shows to providing backing singers for a concert or session
singers to a recording studio, 
have performed in public for
such clients as The Royal Academy of Arts, the Royal Yacht Hotel
in Jersey and St. Pancras International and have appeared on
national radio three times.

After being enthralled by our gospel choir and beatboxer instore at
Selfridges in 2007 celebrity DJ Russell Brand immediately invited
them to appear on his
BBC Radio 2 Christmas show that year, on
which they performed
an unprecedented five live songs, only two of
which were carols! They have also appeared on the BBC 6Music

Sean Keaveny Breakfast Show in Dec 2008
and May 2010.

HBSC has an extremely flexible format that can allow for any
of singers; the optional inclusion of a human beatboxer;
collaboration with
musicians (who we can also provide); and there
are often circumstances
where live performances don't require a PA.
Its experienced, charming
vocalists are sourced from the
industry where they work with
artistes such as Basement Jaxx,
Stevie Wonder, Madonna, Elton John,
Gorillaz, Lionel Ritchie and
Robbie Williams. The principal human
beatboxer is Richard
Lianhart, who starred in the international hit
musical 'Daddy Cool'
and the 2011 TV ad campaign for T-Mobile.
