Sept 16th 2020

Welcome to the new website design! Yes, despite having all touring and gigs put on hold since April it has been a wonderful time to catch up on 'things that need doing' - one of which was upgrading websites site so hello!

Take a look around - there's a video page,  a music downloaded page plus new pictures and information. The studio page gives an overview of what we offer here - check out the studio gallery too.  

Studio updates

Sept 16th 2020

While it may have been a quiet times for bookings the lockdown has been a great opportunity for upgrades and additions in the studio. Returning from Australia in February I bought back several new Beesneez microphones - amazing valve recreations and new designs by Ben Sneesby - check him out at: www.

A second Universal Audio Apollo x8p interface is now in the rack bringing inputs up to 28 channels plus all the processing power I could need (for a while..!).

Katie Spencer has been in recording and tracking several tracks for her new album. Check out her website

Great review of recent albums

Sept 16th 2020

Just prior to lockdown I completed the mix and master of Geoffrey Alvarez's 'Hölderlinfenster', a monumental song cycle recorded over 5 days in November last year:

★★★★★★ (six stars/six) in Norway's Klassisk Musikk

"April Fredrick, who surely must be one of the finest young sopranos around currently, sings this mammoth cycle with great finesse and refinement. [...] Alessandro Viale is the rock upon which Fredrick’s wonderful singing is constructed, nowhere more evident than in some of the faster, more driven songs. [...]There is something not so much of a modern-day Schwanengesang about Hölderlinfenster but a twenty-first-century Marienleben (which from me is praise indeed!). The sound, by the way, is first rate." [Guy Rickards]

Unidentified Flying Project by Simon Wood Harris

Sept 16th 2020

Release coming soon!

Having been involved with the project practically from the start, year on year it has developed in a way that can only be described as stratospheric. The list of musicians Simon has been able to enlist is staggering and I am humbled to have created amazing music alongside the pillars of modern music - the likes of Omar Hakim, Pino Palladino, Wayne Krantz, Robbie McIntosh, Keith Carlock - the list is long!
