We caught up with BIMM Birmingham vocal tutor Louise Warren for a quick Q&A on her career highlights, what she enjoys most about teaching at BIMM and some of her favourite tracks of all time!
Who are you and which department are you joining at BIMM Birmingham?
My name is Louise Warren, I am a singer and I am joining the army of vocal tutors.
Can you sum up your career highlights in the music industry up until this point?
Career highlights so far include..recording for Disney, that was a bit of a dream come true. It was amazing, intense and a lesson in attention to detail! Doing backing vocals for Ringo Starr was pretty cool. I have also sung BV’s for Bev Bevan and the wonderful Kenny Jones from The Small faces, some pretty good drummers there! I love recording and also performing, one of my favourite current gigs is with my friend Kenny Thomas, a brilliant soul singer.
What excites you most about working at BIMM?
I love teaching at BIMM as it is so diverse. So far, I have heard some brilliant singers in all styes. I like to think that I learn from them also and I find this job very inspiring. They are all different and need to be nurtured, and recognise what their potential is. I look forward to guiding all these talented young people into a great career in music.
Name your top 5 records of all time.
