Music Production

Take your music from ‘Demo’ to release with production involved in your music. Bring your existing work in or start from the beginning with your idea and let WhatStudio work with you to achieve your musical aims.
If you would like to hire Stephen to mix a recording tracked elsewhere, please get in touch several months before tracking begins.


Unique yet traditional writing that enhances and inspires, always superseding expectations and enhancing the given brief, be it songwriting, sound design or audio for film.
Bringing together a broad set of experiences Stephen has workedg with some very credible names and agencies from Television, advertising, digital and radio as well  a  for guest lecturing on songwriting, audio for film for Hope University and The University of Gloucestershire


I can take the raw tracks you’ve recorded at any studio and turn them into professional, unique recordings.

Iso Rooms

We have a range of spaces to suit your production. A HUGE 40x30x30 Live room, an actual church with Aux sends from the desk ( working as reverb chamber!) Bass cupboards, guitar basements and multi-purpose Iso options in different parts of the facility. More info HERE


Using a Hybrid mixing approach I can create a coherent final master that translates well onto all types of listening systems and environments. What is Mastering?  I suggest it is getting another person that you trust to prepare the track for broadcast using their equipment and experience. Get in touch.


Send me your guitar or bass DI tracks, and I’ll send you back the vintage 63 Wem tone or heaviest tones you’ve ever heard, or the weirdest whateverz…you choose


Block booking is available for use of this luxury space. An ideal tour pre-production location.
