We'll get straight into the studio and decide what song you would like to record - it may be a cover you really like or even a song you have written or would like help finishing off. Once we decide on a song we can start to layer instruments of your choice - in the studio I have a full drum kit, electric pianos, guitars, double bass, bass, amps, percussion, microphones and a very good vibe + the legendary studio carpet! After 2 hours we will have a 20 minute break for a coffee at the local Portuguese Cafe down the road to keep up the energy and our musical perspective. Once safely back in the studio we can start to record the all important vocal tracks. Towards the end of the session, I will mix and master the track and I can talk you through the process as we go(I record on Logic Pro X + Garage Band). I can also give tips on how to get your music out there and how to put it on Spotify. Guests can come in private groups between 1-4 people - just let me know before hand. By the end of the four hours we will have recorded a song of your choice and you'll go home with a CD as well as a digital version. I'll also give you three recommendations of gigs to go to that week in Oxford
I am a full time musician with over 10 years of experience playing in bands, recording music and producing records. My recording studio, The Shed Studios, backs onto a beautiful lake and is a great getaway from the pressures of everyday life. Songs I have written and recorded have been aired by the likes of Lauren Laverne and Tom Robinson on BBC Radio 6 Music along with having performed at music festivals such as Glastonbury, Womad, Cornbury, Cambridge Folk Festival and Truck Festival. I am also an enthusiastic teacher, specialising in guitar, bass and drums.

We'll do our recording session in my lake side studio - a 6x4m fully furnished and insulated shed at the bottom of my garden. It's a beautiful location to find the tranquility you need to focus on making music. We'll only have the bird song and the geese to keep us company.
最多可有1位年满12周岁的参与者参加。 Guests should have an idea of what music they like and what sort of song they would like to record in the session, be it a cover or an original. Guests should also have some prior musical experience - be it singing in the shower to…
This activity can be for people at any stage of their musical journey. You may be trying out recording for the first time or you may want to learn more yourself and start to release your own music.
