LCCM Announces ‘Music Industry Mondays’ Guest List for 2022 Series – FE News

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

The LCCM Graduate School of Music has announced a slew of high profile industry guests and organizations for its 2022 weekly Music Industry Mondays series of discussions and networking.

After a successful launch last year, the evening will return every Monday between 6pm and 8pm at the college’s Music Box near Southbank in London, with the addition of an hour of open-mic performance after the weekly thematic discussion.

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

For those unable to attend for the day, lectures are filmed and edited into full episodes to watch via LCCM’s student cloud portal and the MAP network of other UK Music higher education providers. Previous guests have included Nadia Khan, Good Soldier Records, TheMusic Federation, Mute Song, artist Carmody and songwriter Rob Davis.

This year, the lineup has expanded to include multiple industry sectors, providing attendees with an overview of the modern music economy, as well as an opportunity for open-mic performance. Get ready to tag those logs – the confirmed composition is as follows:

The first of Music Industry Mondays will take place on September 26 with Jo Howarth, Artist Manager at Attention Management.

Over the next few weeks until December 12, there will be a line-up of guests including Mark Murdoch, Mahogany Records & Sessions; Nick Oakes, Sony Music Publishing; Gemma Farrington, Sentric music; Melanie Shark, Utopia; and Graham Davies of the Ivors Academy.

“We host these weekly talks to give young musicians, students, and anyone who is passionate about music, real insights from top executives, artists, songwriters, and decision makers,” says Anthony Hamer- Hodges, director of the LCCM. “It’s always a lively discussion with questions from the audience and a chance to network at the bar afterwards. Once we’re done talking about music, of course nothing beats listening to talented singers show off their talent. The addition of the live open mic element will give all attendees a chance to wow their peers and our industry guests.

The latest guest list and industry organizations is another sign of LCCM’s position at the crossroads of talent development and higher education, while the college’s new guest speaker, legendary music director Mathew Knowles arrives for his first sessions with the students at the end of September.


LCCM graduates include BRIT Award winner Tom Walker and fellow artists and writers Rhys Lewis and Chiara Hunter. Other former students making waves include Marie Dahlstrom, JOY (ANONYMOUS), Sans Soucis (who just signed to Decca Records) and Nathan Challinor, the latter for his co-writing with BBC Sound of 2022 finalist Baby Queen . LCCM’s custom-built artist education and development centre, The Music Box, in central London, includes a 120-cap entertainment venue and multiple recording studios. Major artists such as Kojey Radical, Moses Boyd, Amber Run, Novelist and Kara Marni have spent time rehearsing or recording from The Music Box in recent months, as well as meeting with LCCM students.
