‘Jedi Mixing and Mastering’ available to hire

Art is about capturing the magic, more than perfecting the sound. The artist often had a vision they were so busy trying to achieve that they missed the destination. It is our mistakes that make us human, that endeared us to people, that we have to leave in. I relate to musicians best. The business comes second. I am a lifer. I can mix and master at home, helping keep the costs down . My ears are open! Contact me to discuss. Contact...

Album Review | Marillion – Clutching at Straws Reissue

I had a very careful listen to the newly remixed “Clutching at Straws” album. I have to admit I discovered things I wasn’t aware of, as the details are very subtle yet they come out very nicely in the new mix. It’s polished, clean and so on.
