Recording/mixing/mastering engineer, trombonist, and composer based in Birmingham, UK. I have been fortunate enough to have played at some of Europes finest venues, including the Royal Albert Hall, Ronnie Scott's, Teatro Rossini, and Montreux Jazz Festival. I am also an experienced producer, running the record label, iola music
I can mix and master in person and remotely, using high quality hardware and software to get your music radio ready. I have experience in many genres, spanning from electronic pop, to soul, to singer-songwriter, to jazz, so am capable of mixing and mastering in several different ways. From very neutral, natural sounding recordings, through to projects with tons of effects on each track, I can do it all! I work to your timeframe, whether it be hours, days, or weeks!
I can also offer remote trombone/horn section (up to 5 horns) recording and arranging. This is my bread and butter, having studied Jazz trombone at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. I can play in any style required, from jazz to pop, classical to latin. I have a very well equipped home studio and can produce recordings and assist in writing parts with a short turnaround time.
In addition to these, I am also an experienced producer, having organised and put together several albums. I have contacts to high level musicians on any instrument you may need. I have a wide network of drummers, guitarists, bassists, and pianists and know how each of them can add their personal touch to your music. I am also used to writing and recording parts and scores to enhance original music, regularly adding string quartets, brass ensembles, and horn sections to projects.
