Jim Carmichael's varied music career began in 1987 with a work experience placement at CTS Studios in Wembley. Already a busy drummer on the Kent Youth Music scene, Jim returned from Berklee College of Music in 1989 and signed his first recording contract with Talkin' Loud (Phonogram). During this period Jim met Eds John, and they soon shared a mutual passion for recording and mixing, which has cemented their long standing friendship. Before building The Park Studios, Eds & Jim had already run a studio and production team in Brighton together for over 10 years.
A seasoned drummer and creative force in the studio, Jim has contributed as a performer, writer, engineer and producer on many albums and recordings over the years. Also an accomplished FOH engineer, Jim is a regular on the touring circuit with the likes of Eliza Doolittle, New Young Pony Club, The Go!

Jamie Cruisey has spent the past 20 years working on the business side of the music industry, most notably running his own artist management company for the past 12 years. During this time Jamie helped shape the careers of Emiliana Torrini, Grizzly Bear, múm, RadioSlave and The Half Sisters.
He started his musical journey at the age of 13 DJing in local pubs and still DJs to this day at various parties around the world. The art of DJing inevitably lead to a curiosity of how the records he was playing were made so it wasn't long before he started buying equipment and making his own tracks. Despite getting caught up in the business side of things for the past 20 years, Jamie got heavily involved in the making of Emiliana Torrini's classic album 'Fisherman's Woman' with mixing and writing credits.
With the construction of The Park Studios fully complete and all other music business related responsiblities firmly in the past, Jamie is now studying composition and production to bring his skills firmly up to date to pursue his passion for creating music in the beautiful surroundings of their brand new Brighton based facility.
