Get Discount Tickets for PB Masterclass w/ Dave Okumu (Amy Winehouse) @ Convergence

We’re excited to announce that we’re partnering with London’s Convergence, one of the most cutting edge music, arts and technology festivals around. As part of the ten day event, we’ll be bringing you an exclusive masterclass with Dave Okumu at the Ace Hotel in Shoreditch on March 18th. Dave has worked with an impressive array of artists during his career including Amy Winehouse, Jessie Ware and Theo Parrish, so we know this is going to be a fascinating session.

If it sounds like something that’s up your street, we have 20 discounted tickets available at £5 (plus booking fee) for current students for the Dave Okumu masterclass on March 18th at Ace Hotel Shoreditch’s Miranda Bar. To get your discount code, send an e-mail to Patrick with the subject header ‘Dave Okumu Convergence Masterclass Discount Code’ and the details of the current course you’re studying. The discount codes will be issued on a first-come-first-served basis, so don’t hang around if you want to attend this excellent event for a reduced price.

As part of Convergence in 2016, we’ll be hosting an exclusive session with Dave Okumu (Amy Winehouse, Paloma Faith, Matthew Herbert) on March 18th at the Ace Hotel in Shoreditch

Singer, songwriter, guitarist and vocalist Dave Okumu is best known for being the frontman of the Mercury nominated band The Invisible. He has also collaborated, performed or recorded with a large number of successful artists including Amy Winehouse, Jessie Ware, Paloma Faith, St Vincent, Theo Parrish, Tony Allen, King Sunny Ade, Matthew Herbert, Toddla T and Anna Calvi and therefore has plenty to talk about.

On the day, we’ll be exploring Dave’s collaborative and creative process in the studio, with our very own Declan McGlynn on hosting duties to guide the interview and Q&A. This will be your chance to find out how some of the biggest artists in the game collaborate and work together in a studio environment.
