International music producer and disc jockey Eats Everything, real name Daniel Pearce, swapped Ibiza nightlife for a lecture room as he made a guest appearance at Bath College.
The globetrotting artist – who was born and lives in Bristol – talked to students from the college’s music department about his success in the industry, and shared his experiences of live touring, using different music software and working with producers.
The visit was one of three ‘Food for Thought’ school and college lectures given by Eats Everything in the region, with the aim of inspiring a new generation of young music producers from across the West Country.
It also forms part of the ‘Eats Meets West’ November tour – intimate gigs in town and cities that make up the best of the West. This includes Bath, his hometown of Wotton-Under-Edge, and a small café in Weston-Super-Mare, which was chosen after his fans voted for the seaside town in a Facebook competition.
Eats Everything said: “With a busy touring schedule, I rarely get to spend time in the green and pleasant West Country that I love so much. Being able to meet local students today and seeing them inspired by music was absolutely amazing.”
Music lecturer Adam Gazla said: “At Bath College, our students develop cutting edge skills and technical knowledge, taught by tutors with industry links in a friendly and inclusive environment.
“In a competitive industry, it’s really helpful to have someone so successful (who comes from the South West) visit and give us advice on how to stand out and break through.”
