I'm a versatile and musical producer/engineer experienced in recording and producing many genres, from hard rock, to folk and much else in between.
I love to work with people who are looking to collaborate with the producer on an artistic level, and who are striving to push sonic boundaries.
I firmly believe that it's important to build a record up on strong foundations, and so I aim to meticulously cultivate the right sounds at the source, before anything hits tape. the idea of recording any old thing, with a view to shaping it later, tends to turn me off.
Some of my favourite sessions have been with Sylvia Massey, Bite the Buffalo, Sleeptalking, The St Pierre Snake Invasion and Droogs.
Tracks I've recorded and produced have been featured on mainstream radio including BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 6.

Tom is great to work with. Always makes my drums sound great, and usually makes me a better drummer with his production notes. Tom will continue to be my 'go to guy' for pretty much any project I'm working on. Couldn't recommend him highly enough.
Tom's flexible approach ranges from no-nonsense studio craft to far-out Enoesque experimentation. Tom brings patience, professionalism and a whole lot of wisdom to the field of music production. He is an open-minded musician actively working across multiple disciplines, which means he is not bound by any dogma, and can freely move between styles, both as a musician and producer. He aims to work alongside an artist, offering valuable advice and creative input where appropriate, to get the best out of the recording session without dominating or railroading the artist’s original vision.
