Pro7ect 2019 @ Hotel Pelirocco.

Applications are now open to join our 2019 Headline producers in our P7 pop-up studios at the world famous Hotel Pelirocco.

A stimulating week of musical collaboration is promised to all those who take part in this unique event, which gives songwriters and artists the opportunity to work with A-list producers to write, record and produce great music. The Pro7ectexperience often results in a large volume of material being written and recorded in a very short space of time. In 2018 21 artists travelled from around the world to write and recorded 13 tracks in five pop-up studios in three days. Various tracks have been optioned by artists and publishers, including the Brand New Heavies who will feature a Pro7ecttrack on their next album.

The first headline producer to be announced for 2019 is Stew Jackson, writer and producer for Massive Attack and a founding member of Phantom Limb. A multi-instrumentalist with production and engineering knowledge and musical scope that crosses many styles and genres, Jackson has recently been busy working with artists such as Nick Cave, Patti Smith, Tom Waits, Serpent with Feet, Hope Sandoval, Damon Albarn, Marc Ford,Skin (Skunk Anansie) and Will Young. Jackson also writes and produces music for film and TV projects and his recent credit list includes Fight for Mosul, Louis Theroux’s My Scientology film, Luther and True Blood.

The second headline producer to be announced for 2019 is Multi-instrumentalist Gethin Pearson. Comfortable with a range of genres, from rock and metal to classic indie, electropop and hip hop, Gethin’s enthusiastic and encouraging style has a special way of nurturing talent by enabling artists to find their own sound, pushing them out of their comfort zone to explore new influences and sounds whilst also remaining true to themselves and their art.

Gethin recently produced tracks on the To Kill A King album The Spiritual Dark Ageincluding the singles The Good Old Days, Spiritual Dark Ageand No More Love Songs, which he also co-wrote. Gethin also produced Kele Okereke’s contribution to the recent Universal Lovealbum, My Guy. He’s currently working with new acts The RPMs and The Pitchforks. He also recently did vocal production for Alma + French Montana’s massive single Phasesas well as vocal production for Charli XCX. Other artists that Gethin has worked with include Mallory Knox, Hark, Army Of Bones, Benji Wild (Asteroid Boys), The Enemy, Ronan Keating, Judas, Monico Blonde, Purest, The Morning and Joe McVeigh.

The third headline producer to be announced for 2019 is Lauren Deakin Davies. Lauren has been performing and playing in bands since the age 10, beginning with a folk band made up of school friends. By the time she was 18, Lauren was producing for other artists and was the youngest female producer to have a track played on BBC Radio 2. In 2017 she won NMG’s Producer of the Year Award and has now produced or written over 200 commercially released tracks, including 10 albums (six as sole producer), of which two are award winning. Among the artists she has worked with are Laura Marling, Kelly Oliver, the F Spot Femmes Fatales, Kate Dimbleby, Bella Gaffney, The Christmas Present and Downtown. At just 22 she is also an artist in her own right (going under the name of Didi) and the youngest full member of the Music Producers Guild, which she joined in 2016.
