Mixing the new album by Paul Carrack:

This new album was recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra during 3 3-hour sessions at AIR Studios and Abbey Road. The 70-piece orchestra was arranged and conducted by David Cullen, and the album produced by Peter Van Hooke.

I'm having a great time mixing it at AIR Studio 2 on their classic SSL 8000 console, and Dynaudio monitors.

This represents a phenomenal amount of radio play for a single which is released by the band’s own record label, Magic Leap Records. They have not had the advantage of a major label promotional campaign, which is the norm for major releases. The other artists in the FMQB chart include Lifehouse, Nickelback, Joan Armatrading & AC/DC.

Lloyd Cole and I finished the mixing of his new album “Broken Record” last Saturday evening (25th April 2010). 12 tracks recorded in New York with a live band (plus overdubs) - a first for many years on a Lloyd Cole album.

It should be available sometime in September - stay tuned!

Just finished the mixes of two new tracks for Sparkydog, a brand new band from Hollywood, Florida.

Very pleased....

I’m knocked out with my new Universal Audio UAD plug-ins - the best I’ve used, and very inspiring.
