Studios

I’ve been lucky to work in some top studios: Real World, Abbey Road, The Pool, Livingston, Øra (Norway), Forward (Rome) and in venues including the Barbican, Royal Festival Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Roundhouse and Pula Arena.

I am the head engineer at one of the best – Real World Studios. I also have my own production/mix room at The Summerhouse, in Bath.

Real World Studios is a state-of-the-art residential recording studio in the West of England, built by Peter Gabriel in the late 80s. It is one of the most high-tech facilities in the world and the birthplace of numerous landmark albums.

The Summerhouse is my production/mixing studio in Bath. It is a large, comfortable and acoustically-treated space with an amazing view. It’s based around a UAD Apollo Pro Tools native system, ATC SCM25a/Tannoy monitoring. There is a selection of outboard, microphones, keyboards, guitars and amps.
