ACM is pleased to announce that British Composer/Music Producer Jez Ashurst will be visiting Guildford to deliver an Audio Production Masterclasses on Thursday 7th February.

The masterclass will take place in ACM’s state-of-the-art SSL studio from 1.30-3.30pm with Jez sharing some of his industry experiences as well as offering insight into production and mixing techniques he’s learnt throughout his career.

Jez is a multi-instrumentalist songwriter/producer/programmer based in London, who has also worked in the USA, Scandinavia, Germany and Japan. His early career spanned work as an engineer to session guitar work and composing for TV.

The last couple of years have seen Jez write cuts for (and with) Will Young, Mel C, Boyzone, Joe McElderry and many other established and new UK acts.

When not writing, Jez has added his guitar and programming skills to hit records from Susan Boyle and Il Divo, as well as a Number One for Little Mix, and he was one of the team behind the music for 2011′s X Factor.

As a producer/writer, Jez has had Number One multi-platinum cuts in Japan and Australia and helped developing acts such as Lawson (three songs on their Top Three UK album Chapman Square), Gabrielle Aplin and Ben Montague.

When not writing with other artists, Jez fronts the band Farrah who have toured worldwide and have received glowing reviews for their intelligent pop records; He particularly likes developing new talent.

A true all-rounder, Jez is as happy writing topline and lyrics as he is producing and programming.

Tickets for Jez Ashurst’s Audio Production masterclasses are strictly limited and available from Student Relations.
