I’ve recorded in an amazing variety of studios from bedrooms and basements to some of the world’s most renowned studios. Every recording environment has its own set of unique challenges and surprises.
Studio recording can be like marmite, you either love it or hate it. I personally love recording and I don’t mind where I do it!
Each time I go into the studio whether or not I’ve been there before, I learn something new that I can use in the future.

LYLE’S HOME STUDIO – KENSAL RISE, LONDON
Lyle (previously a guitarist from Fortnight In Florida) was working and looking after this event space in Kensal Rise. When it wasn’t in use as a space for partying Lyle had it setup up as a fully functioning home studio.
We (Harpo Smith) managed to get a couple of demos done for our first album before it was rudely taken away from him at the beginning of 2018 also for redevelopment.
