ICMP is hosting its first songwriting camp on Thursday 4th July 2019 - curated and developed by the Careers & Industry Hub!
This is an opportunity for students and alumni to collaborate and work with professional songwriters as coaches/mentors as they write to a professional, legitimate brief. The resulting song will then be reviewed at the end of the day by Ed Poston, Senior A&R Manager at Concord/Imagem publishing.
The first coach to be announced is Fiona Bevan. Fiona has written with Ed Sheeran, One Direction, Five Seconds of Summer and Tom Walker to name but a few!
Our second coach is Aidan Martin who has written with or has cuts with James Smith (Virgin EMI) / Billy Lockett (Warner) / Call Me Loop / Will Young (Cooking Vinyl) / Hugel (Warner) / Sam Calver (Island) / Dusky Grey (Warner) / Louis III / Folly Rae (Black Butter) / Jamie Miller (Atlantic) / Mali-Koa (Island) / Jake Isaac (Rocket Music) / Richard Judge / Rose Gray (Various Artists) / Leo Stannard / Joss Stone / Blue / Lukas Rieger (Sony).
Carla Monroe is our third coach. She is best known for writing and vocalling the platinum hit single MK ‘17’ with over 600k units sold and over 120 million streams on Spotify. Notable cuts and sessions include Grammy nominated duo Camelphat, Sigma, Tiesto, Sigala, Martin Jenson, R3hab, Oliver Heldens, TMS, James Hype and Steel Banglez and more.
On the day, 5 groups of up to 4 people will be created to work on a song/demo. Each group will include a producer and all mentors/coaches will be rotating between the different rooms.
