GUITARIST, COMPOSER, BRINGING OUT THE RIGHT ‘VIBE’ IN THE SESSION AND THE PRODUCTION
Having adored music from a very early age, his studio and composition is very wide and varied. From creating remixes for a large number of acts (most notably Bring Me The Horizon and The Skints) to composing for radio, TV, film and web in almost every conceivable style, Nick is keen to bring out unique and exciting sonic textures and memorable hooks in the work he produces.
Himself a musician, Nick has been playing guitar since he was 8 years old, still performs live with his own band and has toured across the UK and Europe as a performer. He has also plied his craft by teching guitar and drums for acts such as Don Broco and My Passion. His keen interest in the guitar is always reflected in his production, as he views it vital to create top quality tone for all tracks he records.
