A WARM WELCOME TO AWAKE MUSIC!

Music is a very personal thing, it has different meanings to different people. At Awake music, your songs are developed and nurtured with the utmost loving care and attention. As your producer my role is to bring the absolute best in your music and have you leave with a song, or a body of work that you are proud of! There is a good selection of tracks on the music page, and more about the production process on the ‘what i do’ page. Enjoy the music and feel free to get in touch or leave feedback via the contact page.

Cheers, Iain

 

Production Services

Your music is very important. To have it recorded and ‘set in stone’ can seem like an overwhelming task. My experience has taught me that the creative process can be relaxed, enjoyable and fun. I have the knowledge and ‘know how’ to easily translate your ideas into an arrangement that brings the best out in your songs.

It’s all about connecting with the essence of the song and understanding you as an artist and what you want to bring out in your music.  I have been composing, producing, and performing music for over 30 years and have a deep understanding of the creative process. Every artist has their own uniqueness and their own way of expressing that. It is my job to bring that out and to help you create music that you’ll be proud of!

  • “Iain is a very talented producer and musician who is an absolute pleasure to work with. He is approachable, friendly and very professional. Iain’s creative input to my work in the studio helped me greatly. He understood my music and helped me to express the sound I was looking for through his ability to play many instruments, and his highly skilled production ability. I would recommend him to anyone, and hope to work with him again in the future on other projects.”

  • “Iain recorded four songs by our twenty voice a cappella choir in one evening session. He was a joy to work with, being careful of our particular requirements whilst offering the specialist technology and knowhow we required. The results can be heard on www.andantechamberchoir.webs.com and we hope to work with him again. What greater recommendation can there be than that?!”

  • “I worked in Iain’s studio during two separate recording sessions for my band The Moon, the Son & the Daughters. Given that we had decided to try and record a six track EP with nine musicians in two days, Iain handled our musical mob like a pro. His calm attitude was present at all times and he embraced every request that we threw at him – three part vocal harmony? Easy. String quartet? No problem. We left with some of our best recordings and some great memories of a weekend’s work well done, and Iain was always on hand to offer advice afterwards when we needed it.”

  • “As a professional recording artist for over 25 years, I had always found studio recording a daunting, nerve-wracking and stressful experience. Recording with Iain, however, was a revelation. He enabled me to feel totally relaxed and at ease throughout our session, and yet everything ran quickly and smoothly.

    Iain is not only a highly talented musician, producer and engineer but he possesses exactly the right attitude and personality to make any recording session a highly enjoyable and rewarding experience, whilst producing fantastic results.

    I would have no hesitation in awarding him the highest recommendation.”
