COULD IT BE ANYBODY?

I am often asked to recommend people for different musical services. Here is a list of the best creatives I know, and work with regularly, people I know and trust to deliver to the highest possible standard. 

 

*Note - As I was writing these summaries, I realised that each of them is a lovely human being. So rather than repeat myself, take it as a given that I only work with wonderful and friendly people.

Mastering | Raretone Mastering 

Ben is a superb analogue mastering engineer, with tons of beautiful outboard and very reasonable rates.

Mixing | Chris Mulligan

Chris works out of my studio, I have known him for years and he is a top mix engineer, producer and guitarist. He can turn his hand to most genres, but anything alt-rock/pop (think Jack White & Josh Homme) is where he’s most at home.

Production | Great Sheiks

Nick is a man that wears many hats, not only is he a prolific songwriter, excellent piano player (record label owner, singer, husband, father) but is also fantastic producer of all things PowerPop.

Piano Sessions | Andy Pickering

Andy is an incredibly talented piano player and composer, he runs a fully analogue set up at his home in Sheffield and is an expert in all things 4-track!

Production | Mixing | JMAC

I have been working with Jamie for years, he is a brilliant guitarist and has the most incredible ear for production and mixing. Go and listen to his credits, they say it all.

Composition | Arranging | Joe Lawrenson

Joe is a pianist and composer, who has a love of fusing classical composition with a ‘pop’ mentality. Because of this, he perfectly placed to provide, I can honestly say, the most beautiful string and orchestral arrangements.

Production | Songwriting | 60s guru | Joe Kane

I couldn’t not (double negative, sorry) mention Joe Kane. He is a font of 60s knowledge, a prolific songwriter, expert in getting a 60s sound from budget(ish) gear and all round top guy. His project The Poppermost is one of the best beatles-esque records I have heard.

Songwriter | Producer | Rory McClean

Rory is my excellent studio assistant, a songwriter under his own name and aspiring producer. He is currently working on his own releases as well as collaborating with other artists in Leeds, UK.
