A bit about James

James is a London and UK based mixing and recording engineer. He joined The Chairworks studio in 2009 as Assistant Engineer, after completing a BSc  Hons Degree in Music Technology and Audio Systems. Whilst there James quickly rose through the ranks to becoming the In-House Engineer.

When at The Chairworks James worked alongside and learned from many of the industry’s great producers and engineers. Upon leaving the Chairworks in 2014 he continued to work with many of the producers he met there. Most notably; Ken Thomas, Larry Hibbitt, Stuart McCredie and John Williams.

James has worked in most of the UK’s top studios, as well as in top European and US Studios, whilst working on a brace of top twenty records. This included recording and mixing Gold and Silver records which means James is no stranger to Radio One and Two’s playlists.

James possesses a broad and detailed knowledge of not only recording equipment but also instruments, both acoustic and electronic. He is therefore equally at home building a barrage of sound or gently decorating a sonic landscape.
