I help Pop, Rock and Country artists create and confidently release their music.
Every artist has a dream that is unique to them. Since 2011 I have been helping new and well-established artists find and develop their sound and prepare for life in the music industry. My aim is for you to be 'signable' and confident releasing and approaching people with your music, with a clear vision and understanding at every stage of the process, even after the release.
I'm a Producer / Mixer / Songwriter, based in the UK and I have helped artists get local and national radio play, get signed to record labels and management companies, have their music featured on big Spotify playlists, play bigger and better shows and get on their own tour. Your goal is my goal, and I will work with you to help you achieve it.
I work with artists all over the world, so location is not an issue. Wherever you are, we can still make a great sounding record. I can help you take your song idea to being fully release-ready, whether your song is written yet or not. If you have already recorded at home or at another studio, then I can mix and master your tracks to a professional standard. I can also help you market yourself and your music.

I’ve worked with Adam on a range of different projects, from country, to pop rock, to acoustic; and he delivers a consistently polished, stunning and powerful end product every time. Adam’s studio is homely and I always feel comfortable and welcome there, which definitely goes a long way to getting the best performance possible in the studio. The equipment there is constantly being upgraded and is maintained exceptionally, making each of Adam’s projects as crisp and pristine as the last.
Adam’s an exceptional producer. He also arranged additional instruments and vocals for my track, really highlighting his skills as a writer and multi-instrumentalist. Adam’s work and process was very professional and efficient, and he was more than helpful with giving advice and answering any questions I had along the way in regard to the tracking/production process, marketing, and artist development. I’d recommend Adam to any musician looking to transform their demo into a commercial quality mix that stands to compete with anything on the radio today.
In 2017 I decided to record an album of folk/rock as a fund raiser for cancer research. As an ex Pro recording artist I wanted to produce a broadcast quality album which I could be proud of. I knew Adam but hadn't seen him for years but after talking to him I decided he could provide the service I needed. I recorded all the tracks in Adam's studio and thoroughly enjoyed working with Adam who did an excellent job mixing my tracks The album has raised a considerable sum and has been played on several local radio shows. Check out the quality of the recording. Eclections by John Rigby

A: Chris Lord Alge - his mixes are incredible Howard Benson - amazing producer and able to get the best out of artists Ted Jensen - love his massive sounding masters with a huge impact
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

My mic collection consists of a U47, U87, Mojave MA200, AKG C414, Shure SM7b, Aston Spirit, sE VR1 ribbons. My main preamps are Neve 1073 DPDs but I also run Warm Audio TB12 and Focusrite Clarett pre's too. My outboard gear consists of a Teletronix LA2A with NOS Mullard and GE tubes, 1176s (Rev A and Rev Ds), Pultec Tube EQs, plus 1073 and 1081 EQs. Monitoring is through Focal Solo 6 Be's, plus Adam Audio A5X and Avantone MixCubes.

Q: What's your typical work process?
A: All projects begin with a telephone consultation and most clients come to me with a song idea, sometimes finished sometimes not. From there I will begin fleshing out their idea and creating a guide track. Once we are happy with the structure of the song I will begin laying down the different elements, beginning with drums and bass, and sending this out to the client at each step for their input. Eventually the track gets built up including any further instrumentation and arrangement features and is then ready for the vocals. If the artist is local, they can come to me and I will track their vocals, if they are in a different location they can either track the vocals themselves if they have the ability, or I will liaise with them and other recording facilities nearby to have them recorded. These then get sent to me for editing. The track is then mixed and sent to the artist for approval and to go through any revisions until they are 100% happy, and then the track is mastered ready for release. While we are working through this process, I can also guide and help artists promote for their release and have a solid marketing strategy in place to make it as successful as possible.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Creativity, new ideas, a killer production/mix/master, a solid marketing strategy for your release.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Producing the best sounding raw tracks possible; arranging songs to give maximum impact; delivering a killer mix.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, Rock and Country.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Get big, lush sounding reverb on vocals with a massive sense of space but without smearing, losing detail and pushing the vocal back in the mix and 'swamping' it by setting LONG pre-delays. A plate reverb with a decay of 2s and pre-delay of 150ms+ will separate the reverb from your vocal, so that you get all the benefit of a big, lush and massive space, without losing the intimacy of the vocal or pushing it back in the mix.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Chris Daughtry. His songs are incredible, his voice is sensational and he has released a TON of amazing sounding music!
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Well defined, big punchy drums, massive wide guitars and big vocal stacks.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been working with artists since 2011. At school I was in a rock band and we went out and performed every weekend. At such a young age we couldn't afford to record our music in a professional studio so i bought an 8-track HDD recorder and totally fell in love with it. From that moment on I realised that it was the production side of music that was my main passion and my studio business has grown from there ever since. Being able to help artists realise and achieve their goals is the most fulfilling part of what I do.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: U47, Neve 1073, LA2A, iMac, Focusrite Converters.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Take the time to connect with and ask questions to your producer or mixer. It is essential that they are a good fit for what you do in order for you to achieve the best results and have the most success. Finally, be prepared to work hard, hustle and give 110%.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Lots! Here are the main ones: - Talk me through your latest project. - What do you want to achieve with this project? - What are your 3 month goals and 12 month goals? Why? - Do you have any questions about me or how this will work?
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: A Pop/Country album for a UK female artist under US management in Nashville. A Pop/Rock album for a Singer/Songwriter from New Jersey A Pop/Rock single for a band from Leeds, UK A Pop single for a female singer/songwriter from North Carolina A Pop/Rock single for a duo from California
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Anybody with basic gear can produce, mix and release a world class sounding song. Whilst I agree, the barrier to entry has come down massively and most people can get great sounding recordings with very little gear/investment, there is SO MUCH MORE that goes into a great sounding song and a successful release. A couple of things people often don't consider are room acoustics and monitoring - this can make or break your recorded tracks and your mix. Marketing music is often an afterthought for most artists - it should be well thought out, thoroughly planned, and most importantly, consistent!
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: 1. How can we work together if we are in different countries? - This is easily achievable through the power of the internet. 2. Do you offer flexible payment options? - Yes absolutely! I don't want cost to be a barrier if an artist really wants to work with me and we are a great fit to work together. We will work out an option that works at both ends. 3. What is your turnaround time? - When do you need it done by?
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Helping artists who are passionate about their music is the most rewarding part of what I do. Seeing my clients get recognition for their work and go on to achieve their goals is what makes me (and them) happy!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will be 100% dedicated to you and your project, I will always stick to deadlines and I promise you will be further forward in your music career after working with me than you were before.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I like the best of both worlds!
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: A band I have worked with for several years on many projects have recently secured a UK tour. My role with this band was Producer/Mixer and helping them with marketing, branding and promoting their music. It is so inspiring and rewarding to see a band work so hard, putting in the time, effort and investment and then reaping the rewards!
