Brendan B. Brown

Wheatus front man, Singer/songwriter Brendan B. Brown (pictured here with three of our students) took time out of his busy schedule to speak to musicians about the trials and tribulations of today’s music industry.

Students at ACM were presented with an opportunity – to speak to the New York born musician about what really happens in today’s music industry. In the two hour ‘Music Culture’ lecture, the students asked Brendan about all manner of issues, from how to publish their music to how to look out for industry pitfalls.

Brendan, who rose to fame with hits such as ‘Teenage Dirtbag’ and a cover of Erasure’s ‘A Little Respect‘ said of ACM;“This place is awesome! The facilities are fantastic and the students that come here are very lucky.” He also added;“There are some talented musicians here, I would love to take these guys back to the US to produce for them at my studio”.

After finishing his lecture, Brendan gave a quick interview to University of Surrey radio station GU2 before playing a sold out concert at Guildford’s premier creative arts venue, The Boileroom.
