Studio Work

I absolutely love recording.

The studio is a truly magical place to be.

I am both very proud and grateful to have been trusted by many artists and songwriters to work on their music.  I take every project very seriously and treat it with the same respect and dedication as I do my own songs.

I’m a good person to hire in studio situations because I have a very calm disposition, I work diligently but quickly and I’m very easy going.

There have been many projects where I have been asked to play 2, 3 or even 4 instruments (drums, bass, guitar and vocals).  I’m extremely experienced at layering both instruments and vocal tracks.

Some of the albums I have appeared on recently include:

Peacetown – Jimmy LaFave (drums on 13 tracks – see track below)

West – Rachel Reese (drums on 2 tracks, bass guitar on 2 tracks – I played bass on the track featured below)

Hey Funky You – Ginger Leigh (drums on 6 tracks, bass guitar on 6 tracks and acoustic on 1, I also co-wrote Stranger, Hey Funky You and Never Gonna Let You Go which I wrote for the album as well as playing drums and bass guitar)

That Song About the Midway – NagaValli (single release, I played acoustic guitar)

Feel free to contact me about your project – I’d love to hear from you!

Here’s a short demo reel featuring some of the work I have already completed along with some of my own songs.

The tracks featured in this demo reel are:
* FLY MY SOUL by RayNBrotherhood (India)- I provided vocals and acoustic guitar for this track.
* Kjære visesanger by Sveinar Heskestad (Norway) – For this track I recorded the bass and drum / percussion parts.
* ANGEL by Milkbay (Sweden) – I provided all the vocal parts.
* BUILDERBUDDIES TV Theme Tune (Vietnam) – This was so much fun 🙂 I wrote the lyrics and sang all the vocals.
* HERE IN MY ROOM by Joseph Cirello (USA) – Joe came to me with his song which he had recorded into his phone, it just had his vocals and my mission was to create a full song production with vocals, percussion, bass and acoustic guitar – I really loved working on this 🙂
* NOT OVER YOU – This is one of my songs, I recorded this at my friend Shirin Valentine’s amazing studio in Cologne and it features Elli Erl on keys. I sang the vocal parts and played acoustic guitar, bass and cajon.
* GABRIEL CALLING – An instrumental song written by me – everything you hear was played by me (drums, bass and tons of keys parts!)
* REOFFENDER – This is a punk instrumental written by me, again everything you hear was played by me (drums, bass and electric guitar).
* UNTIL TOMORROW – From my album Bedtime Stories and written by me….this was a lot of fun to work on. Featuring bass, acoustic guitar and grooves made from different percussion instruments.
* WITHOUT YOU – Also from my album Bedtime Stories and written by me. Featuring uke, bass, drums and vocals.
