SSR Manchester - Ian Carmichael, Academic Director
Ian joined SSR after 20 years’ experience in the music industry. His career started in the nightclubs of Glasgow where he mixed for live acts such as Bronski Beat, John Martyn and BB King. He then built his own recording and video studio in Glasgow, and by the early 90s had recorded with Pet Shop Boys, Texas, Wet Wet Wet, Del Amitri, and The Shamen.

Ian’s own band One Dove released 5 singles (two top 40) and a top 30 album; they appeared on Top of the Pops and toured Europe and America, where they reached the Billboard Top 10 dance charts. He then went on to be a successful producer and remixer, and also recorded albums for Manchester band Lamb.

Ian is still occasionally found in the studio producing and remixing, and in the past 3 years has produced two albums for Glasgow band The Orchids.
