SXSW 2014 Interview: Until the Ribbon Breaks

By on Tuesday, 25th March 2014 at 12:00 pm

Update 17/06/2020: This interview is no longer online. I did another interview with Paul Lawrie-Winfield in 2015 that you can read here.

For quite a while, I’ve had to argue with my non-dance music loving friends that dance has heart. Peter Lawrie-Winfield (pictured far right at top), aka the man behind Until the Ribbon Breaks further bolsters my theory, as he sings as soulfully as Bryan McKnight but to my glee, there are plenty of beats behind him. And he also plays trumpet! What doesn’t this man do?

Taken together, he’s one intriguing live performer indeed. I was so impressed by his appearance at the Universal Music Group takeover at the Palm Door on Sixth Thursday afternoon that straight after he got offstage, I asked him if we could do an interview and we agreed to meet on Friday afternoon, after he played the British Music Embassy’s showcase there. We talk about where the name of his act comes from, how he himself views his music and position in the business, his influences and much more. Have a listen to the interview below.

Thanks very much to the wonderful Pete for such a nice chat, and best wishes to you in Los Angeles!
