Full live takes with vintage gear from an experienced recording artist. Latest commercial releases: "Gotts Street Park - Volume One" "Yellow Days - Nothing's Going to Keep Me Down"
I believe in the magic of full live takes (with overdubs if necessary) and provide tasteful well played guitar tracks. I spend time choosing the right selection of vintage mics/high end pre-amp/guitar to suit your track... and my secret weapon - a 1975 Fender Twin Reverb.
I'm very open minded and enjoy discussing ideas and collaborating to create the perfect parts for the song!
Labels I've recorded for: Island, Universal, Sony/Syco, Atlantic Records, Asylum, Good Years, Atlas Artists
