The Songwriter's Recording Studio

Helping you as a songwriter or solo artist to refine, record & release music that you're proud to share

Based in North Wales | Making Music Worldwide

Finally treat your songs to the sound they deserve

(Because there's hardly anything worse for a songwriter than having good songs that sound bad, is there?)


Refine

We’ll make use of proven guidelines that successful songwriters have been using for years to explore the possibilities of making what you've written even better.

Record

I’ll guide you through choosing the right style for your song, which instruments work together well, and how they can be orchestrated to create emotional impact.

Release

I'll help you figure out how to package and present your finished work, using graphic design, photography, effective copywriting, video, web & social media.

You don't have to be a pop star to create music that really matters

People can now enjoy the music that was stuck inside my head

As a singer/ songwriter, there is lots of music which exists only in my head. Working with Mark, he has very creatively interpreted what I can hear and improved it. Now everyone else can hear it too. Marvellous!

Create in the studio

I am a firm believer of the adage “quality in, quality out.” 

From microphones used by top LA producer Joe Chiccarelli to preamps owned by guitar legends Mark Knopfler & Dave Gilmour, my equipment choices ensure that the sounds captured are pure, full & warm.

Look as good as you sound

If you want your music to grab the attention it deserves then you’ll need a specialist music photographer & graphic designer who understands both your sound and your image.

I produce bold, distinctive music & band photography & artwork, working hard to create exactly the mood you are looking for. I will work closely with you to integrate your sound and image into a powerful whole that will establish you with your audience.​

The best album cover photos I've ever had!

Working with Mark was an absolute joy. The atmosphere was so relaxed I was slightly concerned that I wasn't taking it seriously enough and that my poses may not have been suitable. I shouldn't have worried! Whilst appearing relaxed and casual, Mark was actually capturing the best pictures I have ever had. I wholeheartedly recommend him. Thanks!

Making an album is no longer out of reach

Someone who dreams of bringing out an album will learn it's no longer out of reach. People easily take out loans for cars that only last a few years – whereas an album lasts forever. I know which I'd rather invest in!
