We are delighted to confirm our first three ambassadors for the upcoming academic year.

These music industry professionals will be a regular presence throughout the course, providing advice, guidance and feedback to all our music students. They provide an invaluable source of up to date knowledge on working in all aspects of the music industry, whether that be writing, recording, producing, performing or promoting.

We are looking forward to sharing details of further ambassadors before the start of the courses, as we confirm them.

Siddy Bennett

Siddy herself quotes the White Stripes as a huge influence as well as early offerings by The Eagles and Patsy Cline, musical influences that are poles apart yet spark a confident and worldly sound to Siddy’s songwriting.

Siddy is hypnotic on stage and her truly relatable tales are infused with passion, humour, and above all, honesty, and it’s this latter policy that has her winning the hearts and high regard of her ever growing band of spectators.

Along with her range of sole projects, Siddy is currently part of the four-piece, Message from the Ravens, who are currently playing festivals across the UK.

The band signed their first proper deal for follow-up Here’s What You Could Have Won These 11 new songs are an excellent showcase for the band’s bigger, punchier, ‘beat punk’ sound, co-produced with Dom Craik from Nothing But Thieves.  

Comeback single New England in January 2022 was their most explicitly political song yet, with a guest verse from Bob Vylan. They followed it with Partygate polemic Party At No. 10, praised by Liam Gallagher on Twitter. They are currently touring around the UK and Europe well into next year.
