Our first-year BA (Hons) Music and Sound Design student, the singer-songwriter Seb Turner-Moore, has recently made huge strides into the music industry.

His latest single, ‘Another Love’, was featured as a BBC Track of the Day on BBC Radio Sussex and BBC Radio Surrey. Another of his tracks was then featured on BBC Five Live as part of their ‘That’s What I Call Lockdown’ strand, which compiled songs written during or about lockdown.

Seb’s music is available on most major streaming platforms, including Spotify and Apple Music. You can also follow his latest updates on Instagram.

Here he chats to us about his recent success.

Congratulations on having ‘Another Love’ featured on BBC Introducing Track of the Day! How did it feel to hear your own song on the radio?

It was a great feeling. I remember the day when I got the email through that it had been picked and it was going to be played on the radio, and I ran downstairs to tell my mum and couldn’t really believe it. I worked so hard on that track, it was an awesome feeling to hear it on BBC Radio.

What was your inspiration for the song? What did you want to convey?

‘Another Love’ is a love song but not a love song. It's a positive message for people who are trying to move on from past relationships, who think they won't find somebody special again. It gives hope that everyone can find Another Love and that your next relationship really can be the one that lasts another day and another year. I wanted to create a love song that was an uplifting pop banger; I didn't want it to bring people down, but lift their spirits instead.

How has the Music and Sound Design course helped your music career?

The Music and Sound Design course at Ravensbourne has really helped me with understanding and exploring different music production techniques. It’s given me the confidence to explore different ideas in my music and has improved the overall quality of my music too. Although online learning isn’t perfect, I feel part of a big creative community at Ravensbourne.

What advice would you give to anyone considering the Sound Design course?

Seb Turner-Moore

One bit of advice I have is to explore all the possibilities in sound and music, because there are no limits to making and producing music. Whether your passion is song writing or making music for films, just embrace and try everything.

Who are your biggest musical influences?

I’d say my biggest influences in music would be Tom Grennan, JC Stewart and Coldplay.

What can we expect from you next? Do you have any plans to perform post-lockdown?

Yes, I do. I’m hoping to start performing locally once Covid restrictions are eased and then after that I’m hoping to look forward to some London-based gigs. I have another big single release coming out end of April, so be sure to tune in and I’m hoping for many more radio plays in the future!
