Roland Gift Visits Hymers
On the 3rd February 2017, the sixth form received a riveting lecture from Roland Gift, a British singer and actor and the lead vocalist in the band Fine Young Cannibals.
Roland spoke of his humble beginnings and his rise to fame in the late 1980s. He gave an insightful account of the way in which the music industry works and also touched on the sheer amount of hard work that is needed to make it big as an artist.
Roland also emphasized the significance of the creative process in making music and talked about the different elements needed to create a successful track. Roland taught us the importance of self-belief and determination and encouraged us to always pursue our goals.
We would like to thank Roland for talking to us as it gave us a unique look into the way in which music has changed and grown throughout the years and allowed us to see what we can be capable of if we focus on our aspirations.
