STAR is an intensive recording package for aspiring vocalists

STAR offers singers two days of intensive studio time with an expert producer at the state-of-the-art UMT Academy Studio in Newcastle. Vocalists can choose between recording an interpretation of a favourite song or working on an original track, with input from some of the best writer/producers in the UK, resulting in fully produced tracks to take you to the next level.

Record up to 2 cover versions or 1 original track
Pick a song you love singing and we'll help you to add your own spin to your favourite tunes. Come with an idea of how you want to make the song your own and bounce ideas of our producers. Or for aspiring original artists, come with your own ideas and collaborate with our experts.
2 days of state-of-the-art studio time
Spend a total of 12 hours in a professional recording environment alongside the best writer/producers around to improve your vocal skills and produce complete tracks.
Intensive 1-to-1 with expert producer/writer
Our producers bring years of experience of creating cutting edge beats and arrangements for Pop, R&B, Hip-Hop and all Dance genres.
Expert support with songwriting, arrangement and production
Our producers are capable of working in any genre and in ensuring that the style you go for suits your voice and where you want to go. We'll help you to assess your influences and decide your preferred direction. Don't worry if you're not experienced with song arrangement, finishing off your lyrics or pre-production methods - our producers will guide you through this process.
Fully produced mixes and backing tracks
What sets STAR apart is the quality of the backing tracks you'll be working with. The standard of your track would fit with anything you hear in the charts or on the radio.
Professionally recorded songs - take home 5 copies of your track on CD
Impress your friends with custom designed physical CDs and access digital files so you can share your songs and get to the next level.



Causing a serious stir throughout the music industry Lulu James graduated from the UMT class of 2011, continuing to work alongside UMT Tutor and Producer, Dom P. Debut single Rope Mirage was released late last year and Lulu has attracted rave reviews and recommendations from the likes of Record of The Day and The Recommender.

Lulu's voice was born to flow over synthesized, button-made music in a wonderful juxtaposition and is a highly promising contribution to the new breed of soulful post-dubstep. She has supported Mercury Music Prize nominee Ghostpoet on the Newcastle leg of his tour in October and received national radio play on Amazing Radio, BBC 6Music and Radio 1.
