Brian has been involved in recording - on both sides of the glass - for a number of years and
has developed a small - but fairly sophisticated - project studio for recording his own musical
adventures and general audio production work for third parties. He has been intimately involved
in recording four albums, one EP and a number of individual tracks. Currently is involved in a
number of fruitful studio based collaborations with other musicians in both a production and
Brian has mastered a number of CDs, mainly for Hobgoblin Records. My approach is to try and clarify
mix with out altering the basic 'feel' of the mixdown. Mastering, like a lot of music production, is a
of art and science which is dedesigned to get the the best out of the recording medium - usually a
Compact Disc recording. Click here

Brian has been writing his own material ever since school and have also arranged a number of
traditional songs and tunes for the various bands he's been involved in. He writes in a variety
of styles his main strength as a lyricist. He has also collaborated with a number of other musicians,
again usually providing lyrics that use, or develop on, their musical ideas. The styles range from
fairly straight folk/rock/MOR to blues’y and soul influenced material. Most recently he has being
putting traditional tunes into jazz and ambient settings.
These include a large number of lyrics, songs and arrangements of traditional material into modern settings
as well as peom settings (mainly by Rudyard Kypling and Henry Lawson). Also jingles for local BBC and ILR
stations. Currently head of music for a TV Production company writing and recording signature tunes, theme
music and performing 'in-house' audio post production on the TV shows.
