Some Engineering & Producing History…
My Sound Engineering and Producing came about when I started doing my Music Production courses at NCN Clarendon College and the Square Centre recording Studio in Nottingham up to HND level. After finishing the courses I started working for a voluntary project based at the, Square Centre recording studio called, “Soundtracks,” which had other voluntary projects such as, “Fallen Angels,” and, “Include.” At Soundtracks I ran numerous recording and production sessions for young people to whom normally would not be able to afford studio time in a commercial recording studio.
Also through Soundtracks, I worked with producer/songwriter/vocalist, Del St Joseph who has had a long successful history in the music industry with several hits under his belt. One of which being, “Please Don’t Go,” by K.W.S, (UK number 1 for 6 weeks, number 4 US Billboard Chart 1990/1), as his Chief Engineer helping him start up his Production Company “Fourjayz”. Over the years we collaborated with producer Mike Pela from London who has a long production history in the music industry with artists like, Sade, Savage Garden, Erasure, Boy George, Ace of Base, Maxwell and Everything but the Girl.
In 2007 I worked on “Control” a biopic B/W film about Ian Curtis lead singer of post-punk band Joy Division.
Currently, I’m doing remixes, engineering and Co-Producing for Flourish Records. Below are a few photos of the Flourish Records Recording Studio that I helped to build and still maintain:
