SoundSkool were excited to invite ILuvLive’s Janelle Frazer in last week for an exclusive masterclass session for our students.
Originally from Boreham Wood, Janelle has navigated her way through the UK live music scene after graduating with a degree in Media & Communication. She has been with ILuvLive since 2012, and is now currently one of their event coordinators. Janelle is in charge of management, artist liaison and office admin, and has coordinated large events such as the ILuvLive 10th birthday, which featured acts such as Jessie J, Emeli Sande and Naughty Boy. Janelle has also worked on KA and GRMDAILY‘s RATED AWARDS. Since then, Janelle has been picked up by Tim & Danny Music, for which she manages their offices. ILuvLive have a long and respected history.
Janelle spoke to our students about her journey through the music industry so far, and offered key tips and pieces of wisdom she has picked up working in events. ILuvLive has a long history of having a keen eye on acts before they were famous, and have provided an early stage for Ed Sheeran, Katy B, Wretch 32, Maverick Sabre and many more. As a result of working closely with so many acts, Janelle’s perspective is invaluable for our up and coming performers.
Following this, SoundSkool staff went down to the ILuvLive showcase on Monday 24th April. The show took place at Hoxton Square’s Zigfrid Von Underbelly, and features performances from SNE, Jammz, Autumn Sharif and more. Be sure to look out for their future shows because they are not ones to miss out on!
