Paul sold his first computer arcade game to Alan Sugar age 16. At the age of 17, he began to learn how to play a range of electronic and percussive instruments and soon became a drummer in an established local band. His passion for music, together with his technical skills, led him in to recording and production.
Since opening Audio Sorcery in 1999, Paul has worked with many musicians and bands, including a number of international repute such as The Anti Nowhere League, Tom palmer, Mitch Mitchell, David Essex and Roger Daltrey. He has composed musical scores used in Television and Film, working with the BBC and various major advertising agencies including BBH. He has worked extensively with Big Finish Productions recording fully casted audio book dramas.

Rob started his musical career primarily as a player working in all musical genres and being taught by some world class musicians. Having been given a head-start post graduation, Rob has branched out into musical technology. Starting his music technology career as a mobile sound recording engineer, Rob has worked in many places you would not even think of sticking mics. Moving from that area into studio work, Rob has practised studio techniques since 2011 and has a ever thickening portfolio.
Now Rob has been working for Gift Daze and has a developed manner behind the sound desk. Singers and players are put at ease quickly and gently in order to get the best performances and the most enjoyment. The testimonials speak volumes about his talents as a producer.
