The Studio


Night DeskMusic is at the heart of my life so the studio is in my home. It is a warm, inviting place. If you’re here for any length of time you will likely have some of Karen’s hearty homemade organic grub with the family. The studio itself is in a 7x5m attic room, with a second smaller adjacent room for separation if required. I do all acoustic and vocal recording here and use a local facility in the Watchtower for tracking drums or recording larger ensembles.
Based In Spittal, Berwick Upon Tweed, The studio is within easy reach of Edinburgh, Newcastle and beyond, Thanks to its Proximity to the A1 and the main Eastcoast Line.

Including My home, There are many excellent B&B’s and hotels located nearby
