Institute alumni Robbie Boyd writes song for Sir Tim Rice

Institute of Contemporary Music Performance alumni Robbie Boyd (Songwriting) has written a song ‘Oh Alaska’, which will be featured on Sir Tim Rice’s BBC 2 Radio programme ‘American Pie’, a series dedicated the exploration of music and musicians of each American State.

Upon hearing that Sir Tim Rice was looking for music from and about the state of Alaska, Robbie took it upon himself to research the State and write a song after being inspired by history and imagery that Alaska holds.  He recorded the song and hand-delivered the track to the producer of the show, which was followed by a call from Sir Tim Rice himself to let him know his song was selected for the Alaska programme.

The Alaska programme of the ‘American Pie’ series will air on 16th December 2010 at 11pm on BBC 2 Radio.
