I've been at this for 8 years, I've gained over 10+ Million streams with my work. successfully running a recording studio in Glasgow, Producing and writing with artists all over the world. Been in touring bands as well, touring with the biggest names in music. I know how this all works and have what I do down to a tee.

I love to work with Artists, bands and anyone with an open mind to making music. I've been producing for 8 years running a studio and also doing freelance work all over the world. I've played and worked with top names in the business. I never shy away from anything creative. I love making unique sounds, I don't use templates and make you sound like everyone else i've worked with, everything I make doesn't sound like that last thing I did. I also love to make a 'SHOW' for artists with being a music director in the sense of getting your live show to a professional level and fluent like a language. Do you want help making music, writing songs, producing, mixing, remixing, live sound, Live music direction I can help
