This page highlights some of the most recent successes for our Youth Music participants. We're extremely proud to showcase these achievements and as you can see each one is incredible.
Fabulous news hot off the press!!! Neko has been commissioned by Human Academy (French Manga school) to provide music for their 2021 / 22 show reel. Director of Human Academy Caroline Parsons picked the Neko track 'Danbo' after hearing LAMP Album 1, the recent Youth Music funded compilation. Get ready for an audio visual treat!
JFlo lyrics published!
Rona Tutt OBE, former President of The National Association of Headteachers has been in touch to ask if she can use some of Josh aka JFlo lyrics in a book she's co-writing. JFlo is a young music producer and rapper currently studying Level 2 Music Technology at LAMP. One of his pieces was published in the LAMP 2019 Winter Journal where Rona spotted it, shortly after meeting LAMP Director Timothy Ellis at his talk at the National Autistic Society Professionals Conference back in February. The book, titled How to Maximise Emotional Wellbeing and Improve Mental Health: The essential guide to establishing a whole-school ethos is due to be published next year by Routledge. The book also includes a short case study of LAMP.
MNMLST: Soho Radio Vinyl Sessions
Avery Green's band MNMLST was selected for an exclusive session at Soho Radio. The session is recorded direct to vinyl before being mastered for the YouTube site. Avery wrote all the material for MNMLST, which includes former TA Louis on bass and Director, Timothy Ellis, on drums.
"MNMLST were genuinely awe inspiring. Ultimately cathartic and transcendent, they reflect the abstraction of 20th Century art music" Tim Taylor, Irish Club 29 Feb 2020
Weaponised Autism is just that! Play this track and see for yourself. Available for download on LAMP Album 1 - see them in action here, live in the booth at LAMP. Such a phenomena!
You know how I feel...
LAMP Chritsmas performance. Reece and Raider's rendition of Nina Simone's 'You know How I Feel', deep, earthy, soulful.
Pupil Haze, Raiders
Raiders and Reece's raw, gritty interpretation of Purple Haze, Jimi Hendrix - Pupil Haze.
Our wonderful drum tutor 'Dr Um' (Victor Guillamon) arranged a very special visit from professional drummer Jason Bowld from the super group Bullet for My Valentine. Jason came to LAMP to deliver a one off drum lesson for our drum student Jake...the whole thing was a great success (luckily Bullet for My Valentine are one of Jakes favorite bands).
