Tell us about what you do: I master music for artists covering all genres in my beautiful George Augspurger-designed room, while making a delicious coffee or beverage of your choice… I also dispense awesome hugs to those that way inclined! I double up as a motivational speaker doing the rounds of colleges and schools where artistic/creative kinds attend in the hope I can inspire them to pursue their dreams.
Where does the magic happen? At my beautiful studio, Deluxe Mastering.
Why are you the person to go to? I like to think mastering is primarily a service business. I'm afraid I'm guilty of giving a genuine shit'n'fuck about my clients. As I often tell them: "Whether you like it or not or realise it or not I am now a surrogate member of your band/project." I invest that heavily.
