Producer/Bass Player/Guitarist

Iain Ross on SoundBetter

I am a 'one-stop production shop' for singer songwriters. I offer full instrumental production for your songs - arranged, played and mixed ready for mastering and release. I am also a session bass player and guitarist with decades of recording and live experience.

I play bass, drums, guitar, piano and I sing. I produce, arrange & record tracks at Balintore Studios. You can send me the vocal and a guide track and I will arrange and record all the instruments and produce the track for you, mixed and ready for mastering and release.
I can also provide session bass as well as acoustic/electric guitars for your tracks.
I have worked for over 20 years both in the studio and live with Barry Adamson, Laika, Mark Fry, Jake Morley, Mally Harpaz, Sally Barker and many more.

  4. A: Collaborative

  5. Q: What's your typical work process?

  13. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  14. A: I have many years of experience working with so many different artists - live and in the studio.

  16. A: I use Logic Pro X with a Focusrite interface, Rode & Sure mics, amp and fender amps and too many guitars and basses to list!
