WHY TRUST ME
WITH YOUR MUSIC?
Since the age of 12 I have been obsessed with making a racket. After years of playing in bands, I decided to ditch a career in marketing to pursue my dream of recording people. I gained a 1st class degree in music technology and have been proud to record some of the finest 'grass roots' talents in a number of studios ever since.
I am currently building my dream studio in my house in Draycott (situated between Derby and Nottingham).
None of this has been an easy ride - but I do it because like every passionate creative I have no choice.
I LOVE IT.
I believe recording should be a fun and creative experience. I strive to make everybody comfortable that I record, and more often that not, leave a session as friends. Without being overbearing I work tirelessly to ensure you are proud and excited about the end product we make together.
Get in touch for an informal, none obligation chat about your project.
Full band, acoustic, indoors, outdoors, 1 mic, 20 mics - it doesn't matter! Working by myself, and alongside talented videographers, I can make you an amazing live session.
I also host my own live session series called 'The Pin-up Sessions' which aims to showcase amazing grass roots talent.
RECORDING AND MIXING
I specialise in recording real world instrumentation and performances (no beat making I'm afraid!) and mix all musical genres.
I enjoy recording all instruments and have developed a recording rig to capture the character of whatever source I need to capture. I have a huge and ever growing equipment list to achieve this.
I use a 2022 Mac Studio running the latest version of Logic Pro and utilise exceptional monitoring courtesy of ATC, AKG and Senheisser.
I aim to provide depth, clarity and punch in my mixes by using plugins from Slate Digital, Fabfilter, Sound Toys, Ozone and more.
Whilst I am able to provide basic mastering for your project, I will usually recommend using a specialist mastering engineer to work on your project - excellent recommendations provided!
Whilst gear isn't everything, it's certainly nice to have it! Anybody recording with me is welcome to use any of my instruments - sharing is caring.
