A: So the track that is on my listing by Tori Smith I'm currently really proud of because I think its exactly what I'm looking to do - great, modern, pop music but with real feel and authenticity. It just landed beautifully.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog. But you know I totally appreciate the digital revolution...
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: 2 albums for a UK artist. Loads of sync work (both corporate and for TV/Film). Tracks for artists that are attached to my management company. More K-Pop work!

Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Right now? Billie Eilish.

Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Texture. Experience. The ability to successfully put together the client's vision for the song.

A: Simple. Nice pre amp and soundcard. Lots of fine sounding instruments. And I'm very much a less is more producer in terms of plugins - I've got a few excellent ones and and I know how to us them well!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Jack White. Beck. Daft Punk. People who use technology to make something sound very, very human.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I usually help work on the composition - both music and lyrics - and then produce, mix and master the track. All of this though is in total collaboration with the artist. I'm very much here to make sure the client gets the outcome they were looking for.
