Sessions at What Studio can range from short 4-hour drum tracking to extended block bookings for album projects. The live room is HUGE, at 40 x 30 x 30 foot; naturally, bands love playing together in the same room, and it makes for a better recording. The space itself has a growing reputation for an awesome drum sound.

The live room is linked to an actual church (to work as reverb chamber!), and also has Iso spaces for guitar and bass, and more options besides.

Need musicians? Drums, bass, keys, etc – just ask!


What Studio can take your demos and apply professional production to transform your track. Take a look at the clients page to get a feel for the range of music supported, all enquiries are welcome.

Projects, when Stephen’s role includes writing, are negotiated on an individual basis.

If you would like to hire Stephen to produce elsewhere, or to mix or record, please get in touch well in advance, to avoid disappointment.


Most often, clients at What Studio record and mix as part of the project. Alternatively, What Studio can take the tracks you’ve already recorded elsewhere, and turn them into professional, unique recordings. This is a What Studio favourite, you will love the results!


Using a hybrid approach, What Studio delivers a coherent final master that translates well onto all types of listening systems and environments. What is ‘mastering’? Arguably, it is working with a person you trust, with the appropriate equipment and experience, to ensure the output of your track is of a quality that meets professional standards and music genre expectations.


Unique yet traditional writing to open or prescribed briefs, delivered on time and on budget: songs, advertising, sound design, radio, digital, and audio for film. Showreel available on request. Clients.
