Our Music Business Teaching Fellow Sam Jones has a huge amount of industry experience as an event producer, producer and music educator. 

Over the years, Sam’s musical adventures have taken him through sub-Saharan Africa producing music for specialist records labels.

As a producer, his achievements include winning the Songlines award for best record from Africa and Middle East 2021, and the Guardian's Album of the Month. 

His work has seen him employed as lead Production Manager for all high profile events with the London Boroughs of Culture. His achievements include producing the ‘London is Open’ inspired Africa Express show, managing a budget of more than £350,000. 


Alongside this, Sam runs the non-profit Music Halls project, an ambitious initiative aimed at redefining public spaces for the creative industries by installing world-class soundsystems into unique spaces. His venture has seen him work with community groups such as London Syrian musicians and the Tamil Music Society. 

He is also commissioned by local authorities to produce large-scale sound installations including the recent Line of Light event to celebrate the extension of the Northern Line. 

At ICMP, Sam works as a Teaching Fellow, writing courses and modules for both our Post and Undergraduate level programmes. Sam has also contributed to the development of our exciting new BA (Hons) Live Events Management course.
