I am an audio engineer, songwriter, music producer and classically-trained vocalist based in Warwickshire, UK.
I’m currently busy writing & recording my new album, as well as working collaboratively on productions with other artists and developing my skills as a music tutor, whilst still being available for a range of sound engineering support.
I graduated from the University of Hertfordshire in 2009 with a First Class BSc (Hons) Music Technology degree, following on from a BTEC National Diploma in Music Technology, A Level Music and sitting the ABRSM Music Theory papers up to Grade V. (Oh, and A Level Physics, Maths & Further Maths, but not a lot of quantum mechanics goes on these days .. )
During college I wrote and produced my debut demo EP, which was released in 2006 just before starting university. I had (and still have) vocal coaching from Sophia Grech and got as far as the ABRSM Grade VI qualification in 2008. I intend to (somewhat belatedly) finish the ABRSM Grade VIII exams and complete their vocal teaching diploma during 2021/2022.
At the moment I am studying a master’s degree (MA) in Songwriting with Bath Spa University and am set to graduate in Autumn 2022.
My professional audio experience includes working as a live sound engineer at various events and festivals, as well as a studio supervisor and stage manager. I was also a sound engineer for three years with UHSU, supporting a range of live gigs and club nights.
These days I work as a freelance digital media consultant alongside my music projects and I’m regularly editing, producing and optimising video content, including recording and mixing voiceover work, along with web design, business development and online marketing support.
The physicist in me has a keen interest in acoustics, loudspeaker/microphone technology and audio engineering. As such, I take pride in my very meticulous editing skills – studying waveforms and optimising the signal for the best possible output for production – before my creative side then takes over to (hopefully!) deliver a great sounding track for you, or indeed a nice song of my own. Whilst of course always adhering to the most important rule of them all; if it sounds right, then it is right.
