Kipper is a Grammy and Emmy
winning producer songwriter and
musician. The albums he has
produced have sold more than 16 million copies, and Kipper has worked with
an eclectic group of artistes including Sting, Stevie Wonder, Gary Numan,
James Morrison, Jane Horrocks, Mary J. Blige, James Taylor, Richard Marx,
Clay Aiken, Chris Botti and Elizabeth McGovern.
In addition to his pop career he produced and wrote scores for a number of
Hollywood feature films in the 90’s, this led to a chance meeting with Sting
whilst working on the Sharon Stone movie The Mighty. What ended up as a
collaboration on a song for the movie Sting was inspired to invite Kipper to
Tuscany to co produce the Brand New Day with him and co write the opening
track A 1000 Years. This album is still Stings most successful solo album to
date, spawning the worldwide hit Desert Rose. Kipper went on to tour as Sting’s
musical director, playing keyboards in the band for four years producing and
performing on all of Sting’s musical output between 1998 and 2005.
Kipper and his family have recently moved to Bali, Indonesia, and he is in the
process of evolving his “Studio Without Walls” production concept. The first
project is a collaboration with the BBC Concert Orchestra and renowned
arranger and conductor Guy Barker MBE.

I have no qualms about endorsing Kipper, what a lovely guy. Super talented and generous with his time and creativity. I have worked with Kipp on many projects and it has always been a tremendous pleasure. Hire Kipp and he will help take your project to level you didn't dream was possible.
I have been lucky enough to fix and lead string sections for Kipper on a number of occasions. He really is a wonderful producer, knows exactly what he wants and achieves it in such a positive, friendly and warm-hearted way. Always a joy to work with and his results are world-class.
I am working closely with Kipper for many years now and I am as excited as on day one. He has a contagious positive drive and is extremely talented at the same time. His out of the box mindset has led to many amazing musical ideas which wouldn’t have been realised without him. I highly respect his focus for every single project, regardless if it’s an unknown artist or a famous musician. Kipper is very experienced but also has an amazing sense for aesthetics which ensures mixes are beautiful and detailed, vocals sound the best they can and every song is always up to highest standards.
Looking at the endorsements that precede me here there is a common thread. All of us have known Kipper for a long time, and so we can very confidently base our estimation of his musical, production, creative and people skills not only on one time working together, but very many times. What Kipper brings to any project, whether a single song or album, is huge experience, talent and passion, not to mention a real connection with whoever he works with. I know he sees this as an essential part of creating the best possible outcome. You will enjoy working with him tremendously.
After writing 17 songs for a Rock Musical I was eager to develop this project further. Kip provided Mixing / Keyboards/ Guitar/ Vocals at his studio where we had several sessions which were both creative and enjoyable.After his move to Bali –Although 8000 miles away, our creative working continued seamlessly across the time Zones. Kip maintained agreed deadlines. This resulted in the Production of ‘Artaban the Musical ‘which was showcased at Covent Garden November 2021 to standing ovations. Kip also flew over from Bali to attend the performance. He is a Top Guy at the top of his game.
Kipper’s track record speaks for itself. He’s literally seen it all, but still brings the same infectious passion and total commitment to everything he does. When it comes to creative collaboration, there are very few skills he hasn’t mastered. If you’ve got Kipper on board, your project is in great shape.
The success of any project relies on great communication. Apart from being a supremely talented musician and arranger, Kipper does everything with an easy nature and a great sense of humour. Dealing with complex sessions with loads of musicians can be a real stress-out, but Kipper’s great skill is keeping everyone engaged and giving their best, so it’s always fun. If you’re looking for the best experience for your next project, look no further.
Working with the Kipper on my band's first song was amazing, he took the demo we had and brought it to full life, bringing out its full potential. The loveliest guy to work with, the process was completely smooth and fluid, and on top of that, I learnt so much from him! Would absolutely recommend as the best producer I have ever worked with.
I have worked with Kipper on numerous projects involving Elizabeth McGovern and her band Sadie and the Hotheads. Always warm, interested and great fun, Kipper is a wonderful people person and a great musician/producer. He knows when to challenge and when to encourage, bringing out the best in all the musicians he works with. Makes a great cup of tea too! Highly recommended.
Kipper’s talent has never been surpassed IMHO. He is the consummate musician and all round good guy. His creativity is inspiring and anyone who works with him will certainly achieve the foremost and most illustrious of results. He has always been a good friend to me and you will find his sense of humour inclusive and compelling. Of all the musicians I know, Kipper is the one I would most comfortably recommend to anyone. He is gifted, experienced, resourceful, innovative, stimulating, contentious and diligent. I dare you to try him and not be pleased with your experience; impossible I reckon.
Kipper produced the very first song I recorded professionally! What a gift to be able to work with such a heralded musician and producer. He guided me fluidly through the entire process, and played drums, bass, and lead guitar “behind” my singing and guitar. Oh, and he’s funny as hell!
