New Studio 

Very excited to be up and running in my new studio space based at Unit58 in Tottenham, sharing with Joseph Costi. 

Its a beautiful space for writing, production and recording. Currently working with a handful of artists including Ria Moran, Carmody, Lily Lyons and Qwalia. Reach out if you'd like to work together or need a space to record. 

We have a nice mic collection, pre-amps, ATC monitoring and a fun selection of instruments including an upright piano, drums, synths and guitars.
