LCCM Announces Music Industry Mondays Guest Lineup for 2022 Series – FE News


Confirmed guests include Sony Music Publishing, Utopia, Mahogany, Sentric Music, SyncVault, 7digital, PPL and more

LCCM Graduate College of Music has announced a number of high-profile guests and organizations in its 2022 weekly Music Industry Mondays talk and networking series.

After a successful launch last year, the evening will return every Monday term from 6pm to 8pm at the College’s Music Box venue near London’s Southbank, with the addition of an hour of open mic performance following the weekly themed discussion.

In partnership with industry trade body UK Music, LCCM has launched free entry Music Industry Mondays series in September 2021, determined to help London’s music community recover from the disruptions of the pandemic. Every Monday at 6pm, the college will open its 120-seat venue with a fully licensed bar for an evening of music industry discussion and networking.

For those unable to attend on the day, the talks are filmed and edited into feature-length episodes for viewing via LCCM’s student cloud portal and UK Music’s MAP network of other higher education providers. Previous guests have included Nadia Khan, Good Soldier Records, TheMusic Federation, Mute Song, artist Carmody and platinum-selling songwriter Rob Davies.

This year, the program was expanded to include several industry sectors, giving attendees a bird’s-eye view of today’s music economy, as well as the opportunity to perform at an open mic. Get ready to mark those diaries – the confirmed line-up is as follows:

The first Music Industry Monday takes place on September 26 with Joe Howarth, Artist Manager of Attention Management.

In the following weeks until December 12, there will be a number of guests, including Mark Murdoch, Mahogany Records & Sessions; Nick Oakes, Sony Music Publishing; Gemma Farrington, Sentric Music; Melanie Shark, Utopia; and Graham Davies of Ivors Academy.

“We run these weekly discussions to give young musicians, students and anyone who loves music real insight from senior executives, artists, songwriters and decision-makers,” says LCCM director Anthony Hammer-Hodges. “It’s always a lively discussion with questions from the audience and an opportunity to chat in the bar afterwards. When we’re done talking about music, obviously nothing beats listening to talented singers showcase their talent. Adding a live open mic element will give everyone in attendance the opportunity to wow their peers and our industry guests.”

The latest line-up of guests and industry organizations is another sign of LCCM’s position at the intersection of talent development and higher education, while the college’s new guest lecturer, legendary music director Matthew Knowles, arrives for his first sessions with students at the end of September.


LCCM alumni include BRIT Award winner Tom Walker, as well as fellow artists and writers Rhys Lewis and Chiara Hunter. Other ex-students making waves include Marie Dahlstrom, JOY (ANONYMOUS), Sans Soucis (just signed to Decca Records) and Nathan Challinor, most recently for his co-writing of BBC Sound 2022 finalist Baby Queen. LCCM’s custom-built artist training and development center The Music Box in central London has a 120-person entertainment venue and multiple recording studios. Major artists including Kojay Radical, Moses Boyd, Amber Rahn, Novelist and Cara Marney have spent time in recent months rehearsing or recording with The Music Box, as well as meeting with LCCM students.
