We are incredibly excited to be hosting a very special 'In Conversation' masterclass with legendary guitarist, singer-songwriter and award-winning producer Bernard Butler.
The masterclass will see Bernard in conversation with multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and ICMP tutor 'The Anchoress' aka Catherine Anne Davies.
Bernard will be talking through his early days in the music industry as a member of British alternative rock giant Suede, through to his work as producer, radio speaker and session guitarist. The core topics of conversation will focus on Bernard's approach to songwriting and working in the studio - so plenty of tips and advice to be gained by students on all ICMP courses.
As a producer, Bernard has won multiple awards including the 'Producer's Award' at the 2009 BRIT Awards, Producer of the Year at the 2008 Music Managers Forum Awards, and he was nominated for Best Producer at the 2009 Music Week Awards.
During his 30 year career Bernard has worked with the likes of The Libertines, Manic Street Preachers, Paloma Faith, Duffy, Neneh Cherry, Tricky, Kate Nash, Heather Nova and Paloma Faith, amongst many, many others.
This will be a unique and valuable session to all that attend, with plenty of fascinating stories and advice.
Students will also have the chance to engage in a Q&A with the artist at the end of the session.
This event is open to all ICMP Students and Alumni.
