Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing some of the news, events and courses from our friends over at Access Creative College.

With seven campuses across the UK, including two centres in Manchester, Access is having a huge impact on creativity in the UK.  From music to media; games to computer and e-sports, Access Creative College has become the UK’s largest national independent training provider.

Fittingly for Manchester, ACC is big on music.  It’s alumni including the likes of Ed Sheeran, Amy Love (Nova Twins), Rita Ora, IAMDDB, Sam Bowden (Neck Deep), Beth McCarthy and more.  The Manchester centres runs a string over courses covering Music Production; Artist Development; Recording Technician and vocal artists.

One artist who started out at Access Creative College’s Manchester branch is Diane De Brito, better known as IAMDDB, who took their Vocal Artist course.

The ACC website sums it up nicely …

“Starting out at Access Creative College Manchester on our Vocal Artist course, Diane De Brito, better known as IAMDDB, has emerged as a trailblazing force in British rap and soul.
Since leaving ACC, IAMDDB has released three EPs, three mixtapes and captivated audiences worldwide with her distinctive sound. She’s also graced stages around the world, sharing the spotlight with iconic artists like Lauryn Hill. Her unique fusion of jazz, neo-soul, and Portuguese influences has set her apart in a league and seen her collaborate with renowned artists like Diplo and Flying Lotus. Amidst her global success, IAMDDB has generously shared her wisdom with our sound engineer and vocal artist students.

“Aside from building her career as a music artist, IAMDDB has also ventured into the business side of the industry with music management company, ‘The Waev‘, and has come back to help ACC students on their career journeys through our GoLive masterclasses.

“Like IAMDDB, if you’re ready to find your voice, join us this September.”
