About / Bio
James started his career at the back end of the 90s, and was first employed as an assistant engineer at the legendary Orinoco Studios whilst at the same time trying to complete his degree in composition and music technology at Kingston. Upon graduating he took over the running of Berwick Street Studio as in-house engineer and started to take on more production responsibility. During this time he worked with some truly remarkable musicians and writers including Richard Harvey, Laurence Cottle, Jim Mullen and Graham Preskett. Much of the output from Berwick Street at that time were Film and TV projects for EMI and as such covered a huge range of genres including jazz and dance music as well as film scores and orchestrations.
A love for the tradition of songwriting led James away from EMI and toward a writing deal with Sony. He also began developing artists for BMGs roster of talent, acting as producer and co-writer.
James continues to develop new singer/songwriters and loves nothing more than being able to help nurture talent. His aim is to bring high-level production values and experience to new writers irrespective of budget or situation. Drop us a line and we'll hook you up.
