How would you describe your style?
Get the work done and enjoy the process.
Can you share one music production tip?
Less is more! Learnt this one from my drum teacher.
What are you working on at the moment?
I'm currently recording 3 projects. One is an EP, one is pre production for an EP and the last one is artists that are busy producing there songwriting for an album. Also working on Radio adverts.
Analog or digital and why?
Both! I really enjoy the ability to manipulate digitally in the recording and editing process but I love the warm analogue sound as well as the way the outboard gear can change your sound. There is nothing like a Solid State Buss Compressor on your mix!
