MEET DOM

I love music – hearing it, playing it, producing it, recording it – the lot.

I work from my recording studio in Allerton Bywater, near Leeds – producing, writing and recording music on a daily basis.

I strive to make sure the recording process is as relaxed and creative as possible – that way, together we can create a finished product that is fully developed to a professional standard and is something you are truly proud of and happy to release.

I graduated from Chester University with a First in Commercial Music Production & TV Production. I’ve further developed my production skills when working with some of the industry’s top producers & engineers – including Ken Scott (David Bowie, Elton John, The Beatles).

My music production strength lies in more natural, ‘live’ styles of music, not sequenced music – From gentle, acoustic folk, raucous indie rock, to the heaviest in metal.
