Hi, I'm Josh.
Music has basically been my life since I was young. If I haven't been playing it or recording it, then I've been listening to it or talking about it. I started out playing in various bands, and then gradually fell in love with the recording process. My aim is to use my experience as a musician and my passion for music to create an audio experience that is unique to you. Whether you want to record your new single or podcast, or you need a trusted mix engineer for your next performance; I believe everyone has a sound that is their own, and I want to help you capture it in the best way possible.
If this sounds like your kind of thing, then I'd love to hear from you!
Request a quote and let's get the conversation started.
Following years of recording experience, I'm currently working out of Creative Control Studio in Bracknell, UK.
I know entering the studio can sometimes be a daunting prospect. That's why I assure you that, if you put your trust in me, we will not only achieve great results that you'll be proud of, but you'll also enjoy your time in the studio!
I can offer all services from Recording, Mixing and Mastering, through to full production of a single, EP or album.
Aside from music, I can also offer to handle the recording and editing your Voiceover, Podcast or Audio Play; to take the pressure off so you can focus on what really matters - the content.
Get in touch for quote on any of the above services!
You can have a listen to some examples of my work just below.
