ABOUT ME

I'm James - a music producer, musician and mixing engineer, based in London.

I hold a first class honours degree in Music Technology and have nearly 10 years experience in recording studios - 5+ of those being in a busy one in central London. Prior to that, as an artist, I have performed in most of the venues in London.

I can use a variety of DAW's (Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase) and software instruments/plugins, outboard gear and some large format mixing consoles.
 

Since a young age, I’ve been a multi-instrumentalist (piano, guitar, vocals, drums) and have studied music theory.

 

Over the past year alone, I've mixed around 80 songs and I'm always wanting more!

 

I do this because I love it.  Bring me a song and I'll love that too.

 

THE STUDIO

I use a few different studios depending on the requirements of the project but, currently, I'm mainly using a fantastic studio in Wallington called, The Brook.  It's well equipped with some great gear, has a large live room (great for drums!) and a vocal/amp booth.    It's really comfortable has so far been achieving some great results.

 

SONG WRITING / PRODUCTION

"I’ve had the pleasure of working with James on many occasions, his passion for the craft and his creative role are abundant at all times, his infectious energy is a huge strength.”

Ben Allen (Izzy Bizu, Amber Run,Zara Larsson) 

A great production always starts with a great song...
 

I have a great deal of experience in songwriting, arrangement and production, all in different genres and with a variety of different artists.

I pride myself on trying to create a comfortable environment so we can feel free to express whatever comes out.
Whether it's your 1st or 50th studio visit, it doesn't matter, the main thing is to get great results.

 

Also, not all musicians studied music (Kurt Cobain certainly didn't) so don't worry about that - I do the theory so you don't have to.
 

Bring me your songs, ideas, brain blurts and let's turn them into something amazing...

 

 

 

MIXING / MASTERING

Never underestimate the power of a mix; it can make or break a song...
 

Your song needs to stand up against professionally recorded, commercial tracks.

 

Mixing is part technical, part emotion and it's important to be strong in both.  Send your songs to me, let me use my skills and experience to bring your productions to life!

"James is my go-to guy for assistance on productions or for cover; it takes a lot for me to leave someone else in control but I know that things will be in safe hands with him.  He’s personable, great with clients and extremely talented.  Most importantly, I can always trust him to give it everything and do a great job."
