Follow in the footsteps of our graduates

Wondering where a degree in Commercial Music Production or Music Production and Promotion could lead you? We caught up with two of our graduates who are making waves in the music industry.

A seal of industry approval for Jamie

Jamie Ahye has achieved significant success since graduating with a degree in Commercial Music Production in 2011, including working for Metropolis Studios and the Warner Music Group. Named in Music Week’s 2015 list of '30 Under 30' top young music professionals, Jamie has worked closely on projects involving a number of famous industry names, including Noel Gallagher, Stereophonics, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Jack White, George Clinton and Johnny Marr.

Jamie has recently masterminded an independent project concerning up-and-coming band FLAWES, who have recently had a ‘track of the week’ on BBC Radio 1’s Introducing series, and reached No.8 on Spotify’s Viral 50 Chart.

Commercial Music Production graduate remix success

Lauren L’Aimant has worked as a vocalist, songwriter, producer and remixer since graduating from the University of Chester. Her credits include working with drum and bass chart stars Drumsound & Bassline Smith, and she is also scheduled to work with JLS’s Marvin Humes and chart-topping dance act SecondCity.

Lauren’s talents have been praised by her course tutors, who predict more successes for her in the future. But Lauren credits the education she received on the Commercial Music Production degree: “I can honestly say that I wouldn’t be where I am now without the knowledge I gained from this course.”
