Guest Speaker Biographies:
“Keith Harris began work in the record industry in 1974. His first job was at a small independent UK label called Transatlantic Records which represented mainly British folk musicians but also distributed the Blue Note and Milestone Jazz labels. In 1976 he joined EMI Records where he initially worked for several in-house EMI labels in the promotions department. These labels included Rocket where he worked on the Elton John album ‘Blue Moves’, Fantasy, Ariola and EMI International. He then joined EMI-licensed Motown Records for two years, eventually ending up as General Manager. During his period at the label he worked with artists such as Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson, The Commodores, Rick James, The Supremes, Thelma Houston and Stevie Wonder. Keith left Motown in 1978, moved to Los Angeles in order to work with Stevie Wonder and soon became Operations Manager for Stevie’s companies. On his return to the UK in 1982 he formed his own management company and has since been involved in the management of various UK-based artists, looking after Junior Giscombe, Junior Tucker, Paul Johnson and Omar among others. Keith also managed the late Lynden David Hall, and still represents Stevie Wonder to this day!”
“Dave Bascombe is indisputably one of the finest mix engineers/producers working in the UK today. His work on the seminal acts of English pop back in the eighties and nineties saw the likes of Depeche Mode, Tears For Fears, Peter Gabriel, Human League, ABC and Erasureestablish themselves as global heavyweights, selling millions of albums and defining a sound that many still regard as the highest point of British pop culture. Though his career has spanned many decades, it’s his latest work that keeps him at the top of his game. His recent mixes have spawned hits for a multitude of modern pop / rock/ electronic acts such as Goldfrapp, Ironik, Royksopp,Lady Antebellum and Pendulum, and has resulted in Dave being nominated for ‘Mix Engineer of the Year at the Annual Music Producers Guild 2012 Awards, alongside such luminaries as Spike Stent and Tom Elmhirst.”
“German-born artist manager Matthias Siefert has been living in London since the late 1980s. Initially a Warner/Chappell Music-signed musician/songwriter, he decided to become an advisor to artists instead and, following a stint as General Manager for Bronze Records Inc. (the re-launched former home of Motorhead, Hawkwind and Manfred Mann’s Earthband), set up his own artist management operation. Artists he has represented include Ben Langmaid of La Roux, Brian Eno-collaborator Leo Abrahams, US-indie band Eagle Seagull who got signed to Starbucks-label Hear Music on a worldwide deal, and many others. He is currently developing a number of artists, including ex-Eagle Seagull frontman Eli Mardock, whose debut solo album was mixed in New York by Vampire Weekend-engineer Justin Gerrish and is set for release during 2013.”
