PRODUCER | PROGRAMMER | SYNTHS
I am a freelance producer, songwriter and synth programmer based in Portsmouth, UK. I'm a regular feature at The Old Chapel Studios as one of the house producers. I take great care in working with artists and bands to help them make the best music possible, from the song, lyrics and melody, to the arrangement, sonics and all the production areas. Years of experience feed in to choosing the right palette of sounds from light and acoustic to dark and electronic, and everywhere in between.
The process begins with meeting to discuss the project, hear the songs, chat about the sonic palette, the type of vibe. As a skilled songwriter and experienced co-writer we will work on polishing the songwriting.
Sometimes the arrangement of a song for recording will be different to how the song is played live. Sometimes some tracks, loops, synths, new instrument ideas are recorded at this stage. This stage is actually the biggest difference between a well-recorded demo and an amazingly produced track.
Being a freelance producer I enjoy working at different studios, selecting the right one for each project.
High quality analogue gear is a highly important way to add sonic weight and interest to the recorded sound.
Certain styles of music require a great deal of editing to make the performances super-humanly accurate and tight. I'm highly skilled at time alignment, using melodyne to tune vocals, layering drums with samples.
The mix stage is where the sounds are balanced and blended together, and wherever possible I love mixing using analogue gear along with a digital Pro Tools setup. I also mix at my production room using the best plugins available.
