Stephen Kerrison is a UK based, Apple Digital Masters certified mastering engineer who runs Tall Trees Audio Mastering in Liverpool, UK. Recently profiled by Audio Media International as part of their Next Generation Spotlight series, clients have included Moshi Moshi Recordings, Maple Death Records, Human Worth, Aphelion Editions and many more.

Specialist audio mastering from a dedicated, Apple Digital Masters certified mastering engineer. I'm not a 'jack-of-all-trades'. Mastering is what I do and all I do because I believe mastering music is a specialist skill.

I have worked in and around the music industry in various capacities for over 20 years and I now own and run my own studio in Liverpool, UK. I work in many genres and with artists and labels from all over the world, but tend to specialise in music that doesn't conform to the norm or that has a left-field, experimental leaning.

My approach is musical and 'hands-on', I work with getting the best from your actual music, not just hitting numerical targets and simply making everything 'correct'. No algorythms, no automated software, just an experienced engineer with a vast knowledge of music who knows what to listen for, working to enhance your music to get it sounding the best it possibly can so you can release your work with confidence.

I provide any file formats you require, DDP image files, vinyl side files with PDF que sheets, Apple Digital Masters, everything you could possibly need to have your music ready for manufacture and release and sounding incredible!

  1. Review by Cassidy M.

    Stephen was diligent and professional! His quality of work was excellent! I really liked that he asked me about the sound of songs and artists I liked and used my feedback to master my song. Thank you!

  2. Review by Joshua Blum

    Stephen is top notch. His attitude toward his work is clearly a matter of pride and self-fulfillment which means that what is returned to you is excellent from the start. Not to say that he isn't wide open to revision or input, he is... It's just to illustrate that his talent is inborn and thoughtful.

  3. Review by Gp Y.

    I certainly hope I have the pleasure of working with Tall Trees Audio Mastering again. They're knowledgable and versed in their expertise. The communication was friendly and direct and I knew exactly when to expect my tune back. They also are quite interested to get your take on what you want from your music and definitely deliver a final product with that in mind. I had no issues with my very first listens but I'm sure, given their professionalism, they'd be open to tweaking a few things.

  4. Review by Zoe

    Stephen has mastered a number of projects for me and his work is always exemplary. It is a pleasure to work with him. I highly recommend him.

  5. Review by Kate

    Stephen is my go-to mastering guy! I feel comfortable talking to Stephen about my mixes and things I often feel unsure about. Stephen has impeccable taste and has always turned work around quickly. He is transparent through the whole process and I would highly recommend his services.

  6. Review by Tisla

    I was really happy with Stephen's work on a recent EP - he was keen to work together to produce something I was happy with; he's really skillful. The mastering was completely in line with the mood and feel of what I'd produced. It made such a difference to not really have to explain what I was after - Stephen seemed to intuitively know! I'd definitely recommend Tall Trees, and will certainly use them in the future.

  7. Review by Joel Harries

    Stephen did an outstanding job on two recent projects of mine. Approaching both genres with great musicality and technical knowledge. All conducted with a friendly vibe, prompt delivery and great communication.

  8. Review by Gyp Buggane

    Steve recently mastered a track for my band, greatly impressed with the result, Steve listened carefully to what we required and delivered exactly what we had hoped for. Great personal service, no hidden extras. Great straightforward process and will definately use Steve again

  9. Review by Luke Mawdsley

    Stephen works with meticulous care and professionalism, always centering his craft around the requirements of the artist. Stephens considerable technical aptitude and instinctive understanding of music language culminate in an outcome that is always sympathetic to the music. Stephen's enthusiasm and conviction in his work is a joy to experience and I trust him intensely.

  10. Review by Paul Rafferty

    I have had all my recent projects mastered by Stephen and when working in a production role, I advise all my clients to use his services. Stephen works quickly, is a great communicator and is endlessly knowledgeable of his field. Would recommend for anyone who is looking for an enthusiastic, sympathetic and highly-skilled modern mastering engineer.
