Are you looking for a positive and down to earth producer for your next recording, who is also an experienced recording, mixing and mastering engineer?

I am a Kiwi musician who helps other Kiwi musicians record and share their music to a quality they can be proud of.  Over the last 20+ years I have been in and out of studios, recording musicians, writing music, playing live in covers and originals bands (and managing them).  I've had a lot of fun, and broken a lot of strings. Played heaps of gigs, written heaps of songs, got NZ on Air funding, Radio and TV play all that stuff that makes you famous...

Depending on your requirements I can book a big studio in the city or bring my rig to your place or to your next gig.  Wherever you will be most comfortable and performing at your best!



I work with musicians who write original live,
human played, music including Rock, Indie, Prog, Blues, Kids, Folk, County, Te Pūoro Māori, Acoustic Pop, and METAL
