REMIX – Make that a re-record, Mick O’Callaghan

What started as a simple remix of this album quickly turned into a total overhaul! After spending time with this gorgeous songwriter and generally lovely man it was clear that it wasn’t just the production that Mick wasn’t happy with so a few weeks and I’ve been replaying acoustic and electric guitars, ukelele, bass, percussion, writing string parts, singing backing vocals and recording live drums and…

SOLO TRACKS – London, vintage vibes and live takes

Songwriting is a craft, it’s really hard to cheat a great song in that you can’t just read a book one week and the next week you’re smashing out classic tunes! You have to put the hours in, you have to make mistakes, do more than the 10,000 hours potentially needed to really find your style and vibe although everyone’s different of course. But even then when you go to write – you never really quite know what might come out? Noel Gallagher refers to going songwriting as…

However, after a tragic car accident Colin was left in a coma that he never regained consciousness from. He died peacefully on 26th January 2016 surrounded by his family who were singing him on his way…

BBC RADIO 2 – Thank you Sir Terry Wogan!

Well I always say a good song is a good song irrespective of where it comes from or who’s backing it? Kat Eaton is no exception to this rule as her recent single Giving It Up, that we co-wrote and co-produced, has recently been getting plays on BBC Radio 2 (debut spin by Sir Terry Wogan) …

YOU GOT SOUL? – Singles and secret Sony sessions!

WAX Studios

SUMMER SESSIONS – It’s getting hot in here!

Hope you’re all seeing the sun a little more than we are at the moment but it’s hotting up in WAX Studios lately? We’ve had back-to-back writing sessions with some fantastic artists this month including Kenneth Barber, LyricL, Eliza Jaye, Damon Valentine, Jamie Smart and more. I’m feeling particularly appreciative today for how lucky we are to do what do as if, for example, we worked on the line in a car factory…

KAT EATON – Releases new live EP on iTunes!
