Popular Music course leader Damon working with Brit and Grammy award winning artist

Damon Minchella

Damon Minchella, course leader for BA (Hons) Popular & Commercial Music, and former member of 90s band Ocean Colour Scene, is working with Richard Ashcroft of The Verve on his new album and tour.

Watch the video of the new single from Richard's album.

Damon, who joined the University earlier this year to lead on the popular music degree in Cardiff, has a busy schedule of teaching, recording and studying for a PhD – all in a days work for the talented bassist who himself has scored five top five albums and 15 top 20 singles during his career.

“ It’s an exciting time for Music at USW” commented Richard J. Parfitt, Principal Lecturer and Academic manager for Music.

“ Not only are our staff,  producing music and working with key industry players, but we’re also offering a whole host of masterclasses to our students – recently we’ve had Ken Scott, Amy Wadge, David McAlmont, Gruff Rhys, and Greg Haver in as visiting guests".
