(Gwen and the Good Thing)

Zoom-based masterclass

""Bright, breezy and addictive alternative pop with lush and well crafted arrangements” - BBC Music

If writing about music is, as they say, like dancing about architecture then let us introduce you a musician with a blueprint or two up her multi-talented sleeve. Songwriting is a multi-disciplinary art, where lyric, melody, accompany and arrangement must all work together. It may be part intuition, part craft and part magic, but there is a process to the necessary alchemy. Join us for a masterclass with Gwen Taylor, singer-songwriter-musician from Gwen and the Good Thing, as she takes us – using notebooks, demos and other fragments from her archives - through the birth of a song from first flash of conception to the moment it opens its lungs and sings.


Gwen and the Good Thing are a bedroom pop group from Milton Keynes. Their Kickstarter crowdfunded debut single, See My Girl, was BBC Introducing BHB Track Of The Week, leading to coveted BBC Introducing Stage slots at Glastonbury Festival, Wilkestock, and Standon Calling Festival.

As their following has grown, their music has reached festival stages (Big Feastival, Sundown Festival, the final of the Isle of Wight Festival New Blood Competition) and filled iconic venues across London (The Borderline, Camden Assembly, 02 Academy Islington) and the UK.
