We had the pleasure of welcoming BRIT Award nominated producer Mark Ralph for a masterclass.
Mark is a much in-demand songwriter, producer and engineer who initially began his musical career as a session guitarist.
He’s since enjoyed huge success in the studio, working with many of pop music’s heaviest hitters, including Clean Bandit (who include our drums alumni Luke Patterson) and chart toppers Years & Years.
Commenting on what it takes for new producers to be successful, Mark said:
You’ve got to be an extremely hard worker - I’ve seen others who don’t have to try too hard to make brilliant things happen but for me I just worked and worked and worked. You’ve got to have the conviction to keep going when it feels like it might have all gone wrong."
Mark’s accolades include a nomination in May 2016 for an Ivor Novello Award for 'King' by Years & Years as well as winning Producer of the Year at the UK A&R Awards in London the same year. His work as producer on Clean Bandit hit, ‘Symphony’ has been nominated for two BRIT Awards in 2018.
He followed in the footsteps of music production genius Andrew Scheps who visited us earlier in the term as well. Watch Mark's video interview on his top tips for new producers.
