Lancaster singer Katy Pickles launched the new recording studio at Lancaster and Morecambe College with a live performance.

Guests were invited to the college on Morecambe Road to celebrate the opening of the new ‘LMC Studios’ on Friday, April 12.

Katy, 18, who is currently on the HNC Level 4 Music Performance and Technology at the college, recorded her five track EP at the facility.

Katy praised her tutor, Louis Davy and said: “Not only have I had access to fantastic facilities run by a fantastic team, but I have been given support with several other aspects concerning my musical development and the release of my EP. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”

Another college music student, Joe McCorriston, also played live having just come off a 15-date UK tour. Jay Nudd, from the band Lake Komo, followed Joe’s performance.

“It was a perfect Friday night, great live performances in a great setting,” said David Wood, college principal.

“If you are in a band or a practising musician I’d check this place out, there’s nothing better in the region!”

John White, resident DJ at the Kings Arms, said: “I have been a DJ for more than 20 years and I am so impressed. This has completely exceeding my expectations.

“The studio has everything a young artist needs and it’s a great venue with great sound. It’s marvellous that the studio is open to the public; they can be very hard to find. I’m looking forward to seeing more local talent emerge as a result of this new venture.”
