Where to begin.
I'm currently producing two albums, one for technical death metal band Dichotomy who are fantastic musicians, and one for Swiss band (who flew over) Sinside, who are already well known in their home country but this album should make a big impact on the european hard rock scene.
Recently finished an EP for Able Archer, and have been working with Ian O'Doherty again. I just love his songs and you should hear him on the radio soon as the work we have done together is just world-class.
Westland Studios is booked up a good bit in advance at the moment, mostly with my own projects.
At the same time, I've been pimping guitars, re-valving amps and buying a few little things.
- Carlsbro 50 Top: cleaner than fender amps, sounds amazing with a tele through a pro co Rat.
- ADA MP-1 rack valve preamp from the 80's.
- Trace elliot GRP-3 guitar amp
- Waves plugins (yes. I BUY my plug-ins.)
- new cymbals
- a new 13" TAYE snare
Oh and I have been engineering for an EMI France project with Fred Chateau.
We worked hard and ate well haha
Right. Sleep. Then more mixing.
Finally I got to work with a band I have wanted to work with for some time: LEADERS OF MEN.
Did 4 tracks with them and they kick ass, original sound with WORLDWIDE commercial potential.
Great lads too, had a fantastic time with them, as you'll see from the text that Gav sent me (on the References page)
I've been busy lately producing a band that I absolutely LOVE called Stillpoint from Northern Ireland. Influenced by Biffy Clyro, Radiohead and Foo Fighters this trio are preparing for their 2nd UK tour and are securing decent support slots.
Check out the video page for their studio diary :-)
yup had a whopper time!
