Maddy Rose performs Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas at ICMP

ICMP songwriting student Maddy Rose has released a new video of her performing festive classic ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’ at ICMP.

Our BA Songwriting student is in the third year of her studies with us who has spent some time perfecting her stylish take on soul and pop.

Commenting on her cover, Maddy said:

The idea of recording a live session of ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’ has been on my mind for a while as I'm a big fan of covering well-known pop classics and enhancing them with my own sound.

"Now that Christmas is on its way I chose this cover version as it goes really well with piano and cello. My good friend Anna Brandt, who filmed my previous two music videos, did a great job capturing the intimate recording session."  

On using ICMP's facilities, Maddy said:

I chose the ICMP studio as I've always wanted to record something in it and I was more than happy with the result. Sound engineer and producer Matteo Galesi was taking care of the recording process and mixed the song after the last take was recorded."
