Brand new state-of-the-art recording facilities at Lancaster & Morecambe College were unveiled with live performances.

Students, parents, college staff and members of the Lancaster and Morecambe music scene gathered together for an evening of incredible performances, which included music by students currently studying at Lancaster & Morecambe College alongside the headline act, Katy Pickles.

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

She said: “It has been a privilege to work with my tutor, Louis Davy, on this project at LMC studios.

“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.”

Prior to Katy’s performance, LMC music student Joe McCorriston, 18, wowed the audience with his performance, having just come back from a 15-date UK tour.

He was followed by Jay Nudd, 23, from the band Lake Komo.

College principal David Wood said: “It was a perfect Friday night; great live performances in a great setting.”

It is hoped the new studios will attract local bands and acts by providing affordable rehearsal and recording facilities for the wider community.

The facilities within the LMC studios are ideal for professional quality recordings ranging from band demos to full albums.

The college also offers on site mixing and mastering by professionals who have many years’ experience in the industry and have recorded bands from a wide range of genres.

The studio has at its heart a state of the art analogue mixing console with top quality AD convertors, a varied range of outboard equipment and a good range of microphones.
