From early ‘90s roots to an award-winning comeback, British band Big Big Train continues to astonish audiences with their epic progressive-rock sound and visually compelling live shows. BBT catapulted their ‘70s-inspired music to four Progressive Music Award wins, years of sold-out shows, and sent their Grimspound album (2017) to number one in the official UK rock charts. Their latest album, Grand Tour (2019), thematically combines the sound fans love with homegrown lyrics from across the pond — making it a quintessential British album. Big Big Train completed their first UK tour in 2019 and are heading to the US and Canada for their North American debut.
Many of the world’s greatest engineers and producers were coached by mentors in the moment, learning their trade and tackling new techniques in live studio sessions. Sweetwater Studios Master Classes give us a chance to carry on that tradition and to impart our industry knowledge in a real-world setting that’s informative, exciting, and accessible to anyone who’s passionate about making great recordings.
We’re honored to host incredible performers from a wide variety of genres, to employ professional instructors with years of experience and lengthy lists of credits, and to invite you to this hands-on and ears-on learning opportunity in our world-class, multi-studio facility.
