Since graduating from our Industry Diploma studio courses, Andrew James has gone on to work as an Audio Engineer in notable studios such as Grand Cru and Wendy House, with clients including Westlife, Stormzy, Louis Tomlinson, Olly Murs and Lil Simz.

He popped back the other day to do some rehearsing with his band Shola who have reached the grand final of the Isle of Wight Festival New Blood Competition. The showdown gig is on May 26th at Dingwalls round the corner from the college in Camden.

“The facilities and support at SSR are second to none, from the guest lectures from industry professionals, facilities and tutors. Allowing Alumni to use the studios at a discounted rate has proved priceless, giving me a place to work from, allowing me to establish myself as an engineer and growing my portfolio, Learning to use the three different studios in the complex has proved to be a huge help when it comes to working professionally as I can confidently walk in to any studio and troubleshoot a huge range of problems. Everything I learnt at SSR gave me the confidence to pursue engineering as a full time job and I am very grateful for my time there.”
