A song specially written for Marketing Derby’s recent Annual Business Event (ABE) film has now become available to download on Spotify.

Called ‘Wright-Oh’, in honour of Derby’s most famous artist, Joseph Wright, the piece was written by Andy Allen and performed by Bondholders Hot House Music.

The piece was requested by John Forkin, managing director of Marketing Derby, to accompany his Dare to Dream section of the ABE film, which called for a new building in the city centre to celebrate Wright’s art and ideas.

Jon Eno, chief executive of Hot House Music, said: “Andy wrote the piece to accompany a showreel which shows Marketing Derby’s vision for the city and it is perfect; very jaunty, happy, jazzy, of course…just what we all need right now after a very challenging year.”

Hot House Music, whose former pupils have gone on to work with chart-topper Lewis Capaldi and Noel Gallagher, is looking forward to continued growth this year after a record-breaking 2020 in which it grew by 17.5%.

The not-for-profit organisation, founded in Derby in 2002, has schools across the UK with plans to open up branches in Singapore, Texas and Lyon over the next 12 months.

As well as producing talented musicians, alumni include a heart surgeon and scientist who worked on the Oxford coronavirus vaccination.

Wright-Oh is available to download on streaming service, Spotify here.
