Jam Tart Sessions
We have recently started a mutually beneficial collaboration with London jam night Jam Tart that will see our students collaborating with talented musicians in our studios.
Jam Tart started 4 years ago as a live music jam night and an opportunity for up and coming artists to play with more established session musicians. Their current home is 'Floripa' in Great Eastern Street, Shoreditch, London and on the first and third Thursday of every month you'll find spontaneous music being created by artists backed by the incredible house band.
The house band is made from top UK session musicians who continue to play with artists such as Prince, Macy Gray, the late great Amy Winehouse, Frank Music, Pixie Lott, Plan B, Jazmine Sullivan, Basement Jaxx and VV Brown.
No rehearsals or practise sessions take place so this truly is seat-of-the-pants performance. Musicians can drop in on the nights and a selection are invited to join the band on stage for impromptu jam sessions, making for truly unique and one off performances.
Jam Tart has become one of the most respected Jam nights in London as well as being a hangout for international artists and musicians while they're on tour in the UK.
Along with sponsoring the jam nights themselves, we are also inviting Jam Tart musicians into our studios on a regular basis. This will allow our students to gain some great experience while studying with us, as they get the chance to record and produce some exceptional musicians, working towards a commercial release of material in 2014.
“After a chance meeting with Michael Greig from SSR London, we decided to set up camp once a month at their incredible studios in Camden to record songs with artists and musicians from Jam Tart. We are working towards releasing an album of material in late 2014. It is great to be working with SSR and we are all looking forward to the results of the sessions!”
