While studying for my Sound Engineering Diploma in London and working at my local music shop in Surrey, I started my musical journey exploring as many studios as I could talk my way into trying to find out how it all worked in the real world. The music shop was in the Surrey suburbs and was frequented by a few musicians, producers and artists, I managed to charm my way into global prog rock giants Genesis recording studio Fisher Lane Farm in the Sussex countryside, I sat behind my first SSL mixing console, operated my first tape machine and mixed my first song “Invisible Touch” using the original multitrack in the same studio it was mixed in.
(my mix was somewhat less polished than Hugh Padgam's mix)
I was hooked!!
I still have the half inch master tape I recorded my first mix onto :-)
“This is a record made by people with innately high standards.
*Out Of Season* exhibits a generous amount of effortless-sounding craft. The songs are original yet un-flashy compositions; one or two are so good they sound like freshly minted old standards. It isn't the product of some luddite hankering for the past, but confidently displays a depth that many modern records don't have the time, wit or inclination to explore. It's among the best albums ever made. It'll remind you of something”.
