Our experienced staff consider a Songwriter session to be some of the best days in the studio. Not only do they get to produce raw, unknown talent to a commercial grade ready for the likes of radio play, but also enjoy the full interaction - playing instruments that the artist may not be able to.

Whether the gifted songwriter justs writes their own lyrics, or sings too, or even plays guitar and piano to any level, we'll take the original composition, record the basics, then build upon it using their thoughts and musical inspirations as ideas to produce the full finished track.

Our producers have the knowledge to sculpt a track to any genre required, and also the ability to play parts using live instruments such as drums, bass, piano, electric and acoustic guitar. We can also program rhythms, access thousands of loops and samples, compose string arrangements and sing or generate backing vocals. 

We'll give tips and advice throughout the day, and you'll see how from humble beginnings we can shape a unique sound for you, ready to woo all that listen to your masterpiece!

An exclusive Music Web Page will be created where you can stream and download your music as MP3s, as well as downloading the high resolution picture we took for your CD print. Perfect for sharing with friends and family - wherever they are!

"Joe was fantastic from start to finish. He took time to play around with all of my ideas and ended up with my song sounding better than I ever thought it would. The whole experience was a dream and bought it to life!"

Holly

Songwriter Silver - 30th January 2015

"I've had an amazing day in the studio. The facilities are great and although I was nervous to start with, I soon relaxed as Rob was so patient and friendly. I would highly recommend this to anyone with any kind of experience. I'm an amateur, I now feel like a pop star! Thanks so much for the great day! "

Jan Rees

Songwriter Silver - 8th December 2014

"I had brought a song with me, that I had written. Rob took endless trouble to turn my performance into something far better than I had imagined it would be. It was fascinating to discover what is possible and it will be fun to share my 'Christmas Album' with my family and friends. Thank you Rob and Happy Christmas!"
