Hi, I'm an amature producer based in the UK, I'm soon to be starting a Music Production HND at a very well established Studio/College "Riverside Music". I play instruments as well as produce and love all things music.
Instruments I play
I'm grade 5 standard at playing the viola (alto clef sucks), I'm also grade 7 on electric guitar and bass guitar, I'm currently getting piano lessons as well to get a more well-rounded knowledge of music.
Software I Use
I'm currently using Reaper (cheap i know) but am very proficient on it and enjoy the interface. I've done courses that were based on protools so i can use that well also. I also have AIR's Xpand2, Mini Grand, and the creative collection for plugins.
Hardware I Use
I use a 61 key Alesis MIDI keyboard for most of my productions, i also record guitar parts and other stuff with a SubZero SZC Microphone, I have a bunch of hardware for my guitar i won't list it all.
Listening To Right Now
I'm currently listening to a Flume remix of "You and me", if you haven't heard flume and you're a producer, you should definitely check it out.
10 Favourite Albums
My favourite albums include C2C's "Down the Road", Gorillaz "The Fall", Alabama 3's "Exile on Coldharbour Lane", I also listen to a lot of Louis Prima but not specific albums.
My Influences / Fav Artists
My main influences for style/genre are Jazz, Rock and Pop, but i try to get a variety of genres into my work. My favourite artists include Tender, Manchester Orchestra and Ryan Adams.
My Music Sounds Like
I've never been able to describe my music, probably because i haven't really worked out what my preferred style, I've not been at this long so i want to experiment as much as i can. You could liken it towards Tender but not all of it.
In My Other Life I ...
I'm just finished my last year in High School this week, so i will be moving to Glasgow City soon to start my HND course and live there. By which point every aspect of my life will pretty much be music related :)
