Kipper is a multi-talented musician, singer, and music producer. Kipper takes my average, so-so, pieces of music and turns them into caverns of gleaming diamonds! When I hear Kipper's renditions of my music compositions, they detonate with energy, power, rhythm, beat, mystery, wonder, and more! I can highly recommend Kipper Eldridge!!!
I'm beginning to feel like Paul McCartney. He wrote many basic songs but John Lennon turned the songs into something else - dynamic. I have to compare Kipper with John Lennon when I hear how Kipper transforms my songs. I'm really taken aback by Kipper's superior renditions!
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Kipper. His responses were always timely and very professional. He was easy to work with and was positive and supportive throughout. The song sounds like a complete package now. :) I will happily work with him again.
Kipper is a musical star who can add, add, and add, to make a basic song better, and better, and better! He is always more than willing to help out and create! It's unbelievable and uplifting to have Kipper working on my songs!
Kipper is way beyond my expectations. I had written a simple pirate song and Kipper turned it into a volcanic eruption! I never expected to have such brilliance and dynamite inputted into my song. I hope that my newer work will also be right for Kipper and that I will feel chills and tears of joy as result of Kipper's spellbinding renditions again!!! All praise to Kipper!!!
kipper just got what i was going for brought my song to life .great to work with .highly recommend
i first started working with Kipper quite some time ago, first as an audio engineer then as a musician , although he has pop sensibilities, he has always produced many different genres of music , the one thing remaining constant , his ability to relate to the artist and get the best version of their music recorded
Kipper is one of a kind. Not only is he an extraordinary human (kind, intuitive, curious, and incredibly funny), but he's ridiculously talented. A few years ago, I hired Kipper to create a bespoke song for an affluent couple whose month-long around-the-world honeymoon I was coordinating. As the journey progressed I sent Kipper snippets and stories, with the hope that he could somehow shape random notes & ideas into a cohesive song. After writing and scoring the song in just a few weeks, he performed it live for the couple on the final night of their trip. Kipper is a magical musician.
Kipper is the consummate professional. A brilliant musician who is especially gifted at getting the very best out of the artists he works with along with the gear he uses. He is also extremely adept when collaborating be it with someone like Sting, Elizabeth McGovern or the likes of Richard Marx. A joy to work and I can’t wait until the next time.
Kipper has delivered excellence on every project he’s worked on with me. His ability to understand my vision and propel ideas into sounds is remarkable. He’s well-versed in a variety of genres: funk, pop, folk, electronic, etc. Anything Kipper produces will sound fresh, polished, and importantly, an evolution of my original vision.
Imperative for any working relationship, Kipper is easy to work with, effective with his time, and enthusiastic about music.
I have no qualms about endorsing Kipper, what a lovely guy. Super talented and generous with his time and creativity. I have worked with Kipp on many projects and it has always been a tremendous pleasure. Hire Kipp and he will help take your project to level you didn't dream was possible.
I have been lucky enough to fix and lead string sections for Kipper on a number of occasions. He really is a wonderful producer, knows exactly what he wants and achieves it in such a positive, friendly and warm-hearted way. Always a joy to work with and his results are world-class.
I am working closely with Kipper for many years now and I am as excited as on day one. He has a contagious positive drive and is extremely talented at the same time. His out of the box mindset has led to many amazing musical ideas which wouldn’t have been realised without him. I highly respect his focus for every single project, regardless if it’s an unknown artist or a famous musician. Kipper is very experienced but also has an amazing sense for aesthetics which ensures mixes are beautiful and detailed, vocals sound the best they can and every song is always up to highest standards.
Looking at the endorsements that precede me here there is a common thread. All of us have known Kipper for a long time, and so we can very confidently base our estimation of his musical, production, creative and people skills not only on one time working together, but very many times. What Kipper brings to any project, whether a single song or album, is huge experience, talent and passion, not to mention a real connection with whoever he works with. I know he sees this as an essential part of creating the best possible outcome. You will enjoy working with him tremendously.
After writing 17 songs for a Rock Musical I was eager to develop this project further. Kip provided Mixing / Keyboards/ Guitar/ Vocals at his studio where we had several sessions which were both creative and enjoyable.After his move to Bali –Although 8000 miles away, our creative working continued seamlessly across the time Zones. Kip maintained agreed deadlines. This resulted in the Production of ‘Artaban the Musical ‘which was showcased at Covent Garden November 2021 to standing ovations. Kip also flew over from Bali to attend the performance. He is a Top Guy at the top of his game.
Kipper’s track record speaks for itself. He’s literally seen it all, but still brings the same infectious passion and total commitment to everything he does. When it comes to creative collaboration, there are very few skills he hasn’t mastered. If you’ve got Kipper on board, your project is in great shape.
The success of any project relies on great communication. Apart from being a supremely talented musician and arranger, Kipper does everything with an easy nature and a great sense of humour. Dealing with complex sessions with loads of musicians can be a real stress-out, but Kipper’s great skill is keeping everyone engaged and giving their best, so it’s always fun. If you’re looking for the best experience for your next project, look no further.
Working with the Kipper on my band's first song was amazing, he took the demo we had and brought it to full life, bringing out its full potential. The loveliest guy to work with, the process was completely smooth and fluid, and on top of that, I learnt so much from him! Would absolutely recommend as the best producer I have ever worked with.
I have worked with Kipper on numerous projects involving Elizabeth McGovern and her band Sadie and the Hotheads. Always warm, interested and great fun, Kipper is a wonderful people person and a great musician/producer. He knows when to challenge and when to encourage, bringing out the best in all the musicians he works with. Makes a great cup of tea too! Highly recommended.
Kipper’s talent has never been surpassed IMHO. He is the consummate musician and all round good guy. His creativity is inspiring and anyone who works with him will certainly achieve the foremost and most illustrious of results. He has always been a good friend to me and you will find his sense of humour inclusive and compelling. Of all the musicians I know, Kipper is the one I would most comfortably recommend to anyone. He is gifted, experienced, resourceful, innovative, stimulating, contentious and diligent. I dare you to try him and not be pleased with your experience; impossible I reckon.
