See my reviews. Trumpet and trombone recorded with a Neumann tube mic and Neve preamp. Writing and arranging. Pro sound at a good price.
For a few years now I've been building up my home studio of high-end mics and equipment, writing,recording and mixing, but my speciality now is BRASS.
If you want horns on your tracks I can play and record them, trumpet and trombone, with a very high-end recording chain.
If you have brass lines in mind I can copy them from midi brass or a keyboard part, or I can write brass and stack up harmonies with trombone and trumpet, add improvised solos.
If you want changes afterwards I'll make revisions until you are happy with the work.

Second time hiring Golden Mile Studio with an equally fast and high quality deliver just as before. They even picked out and recorded some extra parts for the project, just for good measure! Excellent all-round; great communicator, quick turnaround and super professional results = 100% satisfaction and most highly recommended. Thank you!
Great work from Steven and the guys yet again. He even re-edited some audio stems without me having to ask and delivered the work much earlier than expected! Always bang on point for any brass work I might need, top class results.

A fantastic job, great feel for the song and really brought it to life.Next job already planned,JJ
Steven did a great job on 2 of my songs. He is a great musician and his recordings sound top-notch. He makes me want to write more songs just so I can have him record more horn parts.
Steven went above and beyond on both of my songs, great playing, great tone, quick turnaround. Can't wait to work with him again!
For a couple of years Golden Mile have provided session horns and mixing to The Specialized Project. Always providing a quick service whilst retaining the upmost professional standards.
