MacEwan University welcomes award-winning producer and guitarist Russell Broom to the campus this week. Best known for his work with Jann Arden, he has an extensive career in not only producing and performing; but also mixing, engineering, songwriting, and music in film and TV.
If you want to learn from a real pro in the industry, this would be the week to get involved! Russell Broom has an impressive roster of musicians he has worked with including people like George Canyon, Lindsay Ell, Chantal Kreviazuk, Corb Lund, Josh Groban and the list goes on! How lucky are we to have him right here in our classrooms?! He has won awards such as JUNO songwriter of the year, WCMA producer, musician, engineer, and pop album of the year (and yes – those are all separate awards!) and for the record, there are many other awards he has received. Russell has also spent time working on music in film and television, including shows like CMT, Alberta Primetime, MuchMoreMusic, Inside Hollywood etc. During his three days at MacEwan, he will be doing workshops with the student combos and showcase bands, a recording production masterclass, a guitar masterclass, a songwriting workshop, a workshop on music career management, AND a concert! It will be a busy couple of days here for him, but the BRR team is excited to show him around our new home. If you are interested in learning more about working in the music industry, you should definitely be at one of these workshops!
