Charlotte's work is truly stunning. She served as producer for my track and brought an incredible level of care to the project, gaining inspiration from my refefences and taking my song to beautiful place. She sang a lot of BGVs on the song and has a gorgeous, studio quality professional voice. She also played electric guitar, bass and piano on the track so I didn't have to hire session musicians. She's a multi-instrumentalist producing genius and I can't wait to w/ her again!
Charlotte is one of the most incredible voices/talent/producers/writers I’ve ever met. I’m so thankful for her raw talent and enthusiasm for getting me my dream song and I’m forever thankful to be able to work with her. I’ve searched for a producer who would understand my needs, and when I came across Charlotte I knew she knew exactly what I wanted. One of a kind talent who really took me to the next level. Also amazing session singer. If you want to create great music, Charlotte is the best! :)
Charlotte was really easy to work with and very accommodating. She figured out the vocal melody quickly without need of a score. Her vocals were in time, in pitch, and well suited for the demo track created. She accommodated a few revisions quickly, which made the demo perfect. I highly recommend her, she is very professional, and provides good quality work and STEMS. She is very knowledgeable about vocals and production techniques and ensured I was satisfied with the final product.
Charlotte is incredibly talented, immensely creative and a joy to work with. I've completed two songs with her now and in both cases she provided fast, efficient service and was everything I could have hoped for. The quality of her work is second to none. I will be working with her again!

A: I do full song and vocal production sessions most often nowadays.

Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I use cubase primarily and Shelford and TLA preamps. I use a Vox guitar amp and a Kurzweil midi keyboard. I work both at a central London studio with live and control rooms and top of the line speakers as well as at my home studio. I also have vocoders and many many virtual instruments for programming.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually have a meeting with the client too discuss their goals and lay out a plan of action. Ill ask the client for reference tracks and any demos they have. We'll discuss the best tempo, key and arrangement for the song. I'll then lay down a preliminary production if the track needs programming or schedule a recording session if the track is fully acoustic. I always begin with drums, bass and guitar. Later, if application, I add piano and pads. The final stage is a vocal production session with the client and then comping, tuning, editing and mixing.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I'm a multi instrumentalist with a fantastic ear for arrangement, harmony and melody. I can play everything on your track if you don't want to shell out the money for session muscians. I've been the artist so I know how it feels to put your faith in a producer. I've worked as a professional producer and engineer for several years now and have the knowledge and skill to make your track not just professional and polished, but stand out from other professional produced tracks.
