I love music and film - the way they work together. I am passionate about it. A piece of music can set the tone for a visual. I create musical atmospheres, in many styles. I am a multi instrumentalist, singer and songwriter. I run a studio, "Songs Need Sounds," where I help new artists develop and record their songs. I am a sound designer.
I won the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, was signed solo to A@M Records and toured all over Europe with my own band.
Now I work at my home studio, on songs and instrumentals, both my own, and for others.
How I work - Either send me your film, or come to me and watch the whole process coming together - It's fascinating.
I will help you get the best out of what you trying to express through film and dialogue, with innovative and committed music.
I have two short You Tube music showreels - (12 mins and 9 mins) - compilations of many atmosphere pieces, to demonstrate the different musical areas in which I can work.
But I would always want to create a fresh piece of music for a visual though - specifically written.

It was great to work with Phil recently ! He is an amazing producer and musician. He has a lot of creative ideas and works really fast. Really talented. We created three beautiful songs and looking forward to creating more! I would certainly recommend him.
Phil is an accomplished musician and producer and is wonderful to work with. He moves effortlessly between genres and has a wealth of creative ideas. He is also a lovely human being- calm, laid back, fun and super talented. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Phil is by far the most sympathetic producer i have ever worked with...he plays many instruments bass,drums, percussion, guitar, vocals, he's fast with his programming and great with recording my vocals and harmonica.
I'm always pleased with my results and will be using him a lot in the future...
In Phil you’ll find a warm compassionate collaborator . I worked on my first album with him and had many magical moments.
I have known Phil for many years and is a great guy to work with and is a mate.He is incredibly talented and creative with patience and understanding of what is needed to shape a track and song to its completion.We also have a writing partnership and written several songs together which I have released as an Artist through my record company Sonorous Records /Universal Music in the U.S. with chart successes in the UK. I would certainly recommend him.
I have worked with phil saatchi at songs needs sounds since February 2012 when I recorded my first single since we were 10 with him. Phil is a fabulous musician as well as really lovely person. I have been going back to Phil to record at songs need sounds for 10 years now and have put out an album of tracks recorded with him over this period of time. Phil is incredibly supportive and generous with his time. I couldn’t recommend songs need sounds strongly enough. Dave Hil
Phil is a genius at bringing the best out of a song and we have worked with him on many projects. He is so versatile he can work on anything so we would highly recommend.
