Who am I

About Me

I feel blessed to have worked all over the World in some amazing studios and toured some of the most fascinating places.

I started playing guitar at the age of 10 when I got a terrible acoustic guitar for my birthday and hardly a day has passed since when I haven't picked one up.

1987 saw me have the first of my record deals which was with Survival/EMI Records. One of The partners of Survival introduced me to the delights of a reel to reel, a mixing desk and a patch bay and I've been twiddling the knobs ever since.

2019 sees me working with once again with Jeff on an immersive/interactive virtual reality theatrical production of TWOTW. It's a super exciting and mammoth project which requires us re-imagining Jeff's original album in new and unique ways with lots of remixing required.

Recording Skills

Over the years, I have owned and worked in various studios and have amassed a great deal of knowledge, picking up a Masters Degree (with Distinction) in Audio Production along the way.
Production

Good production starts with a good strategy. Budget allowing, pre-production can save a lot of money in the long run and yeild a higher quality recording. I pride myself on being able to pinpoint what is working and what is not.

Recording

The song is KING! I never fall into the trap of allowing technology to get in the way of the performance.
I am very sensitive to capturing the essense of the artist. The essence and the VIBE!

Engineering

Having started with tape, I have seen ALL of the steps in the digital revolution. I am able to pick the right tools for the job and being a musician myself, take a musical approach to the engineering process. I'll make a stereo mic into a camera sound the best it can be!

Mixing

I have mixed a wide ranging variety of styles, not only in music, but for film, tv and most recently, an audiobook. I like to keep up to date with the latest technology in order to deliver the highest quality mix to the right spec.

Surround

I absolutely LOVE working in surround! It is my opinion that most surround mixes tend to be a bit 'safe'. We can be so incredibly creative with surround especially if the recording process starts with surround in mind.

Audiobooks & Podcasts

My first foray into the Audiobook world was with Jeff Wayne's The War of the Worlds, which I believe is the fastest selling audiobook of all time. This was such a creative and technical challenge, but such fun. I hope to do more!
