Here at Resident studios we love to support local talent. Just a short drive from the studio is one of Europe’s leading schools of modern music, The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance. We see a vast array of ICMP’s alumni and current student roster through our doors.
Most recently, a band called Cousin Cater used our rehearsal room 2 to group together and prepare for some upcoming gigs. All musicians in their own right, Cousin Cater spoke very highly of the ICMP and from first listen you can hear they have received a high standard of musical training.
Other ICMP alumni that have caught our attention are Raphaella and Salena Mastroianni. We came across Salena Mastroianni, a talented singer/songwriter at a gig last year and have been following her progression since. Raphaella wowed us at an industry showcase event called Showcase:Live a few months back and has recently signed a publishing deal with Phrased Differently. They are prime examples of the talent that gets nurtured and shaped during the students time there. Have a listen to their latest track below.
The teaching staff at the ICMP are all professional musicians who are actively working within the industry. They have a wealth of knowledge to offer their students in order to lay the foundations for a successful career. Many of their students have gone on to work with hugely successful artists such as Jessie J, The Script, Coldplay and Cee-Lo Green. We are proud that of all the London recording studios, they choose to come to us. Here at Resident we are looking forward to meeting and working with future students for many years to come.
