Having worked with many major artists such as Whitney Houston, Toni Braxton, Usher, Take That, Natalie Imbrulia, Annie Lennox and many other, Denise Beighton was invited to share her wealth of experience with our Music students during New College Stamford’s Industry Week.
More recently Denise has been developing artists such as Karen Harding whose debut top 10 single “Say Something” sold over 200,000 making it one of the highest selling singles of 2015.
The event meant students were able to gain advice about starting out in the music industry and ask questions about the role of artist development and how to make those all-important music industry contacts.
Denise also worked closely with Simon Cowell and introduced him to the idea of Robson and Jerome which went on to sell more than 10 Million albums in the UK. Her 30 years of experience working in the industry have seen her working as a telesales person for RCA Records and progressing to work for BMG/Sony as a Sales Director and Director of TV Projects. In 2001 she set up her own label Upside Records, a production, management and consultancy company.
With the opportunity to release their music through the colleges own record label ‘Infinity Records’, the visit gave Music students a real insight into how to follow the ‘DIY’ route as an artist and the value of independent releases.
If you are interested in Music, Technology or Performance gets real life experience working with our very own record label and radio station ‘Infinity’. With the chance to learn from industry professionals and gain experience at live gigs you can get a brighter future with New College Stamford.
