Allan Keen on SoundBetter

I am a music producer and mix engineer. Multi-instrumentalist: guitar, bass, keys, midi/beats programmer. I can arrange and score for brass, strings and orchestra. I have had my own music and media company since 2009 and specialise in singer-songwriter/americana/indie pop genres. I can be your session player or produce your entire track/EP/album.

I love mixing, producing tracks and songwriting. I am good at nurturing talent and getting the best out of an artist or their recordings.
I am an experienced producer and recording engineer. I started my career as in house engineer and then Studio manager at Coach House Studios (Bristol Sound) in the 90's. Artists that recorded there were Massive Attack (Blue Lines) Portishead (Dummy) Neneh Cherry (I've Got You Under My Skin), The Black Earth (The Feeling).
I became a freelance producer by the end of the 90's and then, for a while, a touring live sound engineer. In 2008 I started a media company making videos for corporate and charitable organisations. I was the location recording engineer and I composed instrumental themes and incidental music for the videos. I now focus on music production and release tracks through my own label, KStudio Records. I am also a successful songwriter with song plays on UK BBC Radio and USA college radio. In 2015, I co-wrote, recorded, produced and released Lady Nade's Debut album 'Hard To Forget'.
I am the 'in house' sound/mix engineer at a studio in Somerset UK; and since 2016 I have been a music industry consultant and assessor for some of the best Music Production university courses in the UK.
For myself, I write singer-songwriter/indie/pop songs (melodies and lyrics) but I also love working on downtempo/chillout tracks.
