Recording is available with me at Silver Street Studios. Silver Street is a fully equipped professional recording studio with a great live room that enables me to offer a range of recording methods to suit you. The live room can comfortable house full bands for recording live as well as providing a great acoustic space for profesional multi-tracked recordings. I can also offer solo vocal recordings to backing tracks.
I am an experienced mix engineer and have worked on many genres including Rock, Pop, Dance, Urban, Soul, Metal and classical styles. Most works recorded at Silver Street Studios will be mixed there as part of the project costs.
Additional mixing or stand-alone mixing jobs can be done at my smaller, Pro Tools based mix studio to reduce the cost to you.
Mastering is the process of finalising a stereo mix and preparing it for its final format. I provide mastering free of charge to artists who book a day or more with me at the studio. However I can offer mastering as a separate service to musicians who have recorded at home or elsewhere.
Demos are quick live recordings that enable the artist to achieve 4 or 5 songs in a day. Silver Street Studios can comfortably house a full band and a recording will capture a live performance. Vocal overdubs can be done but will generally reduce the number of tracks captured. Mixing is done during the session and therefore included in the price. Basic mastering will be offered free to bands booking a full day or more. Standard price is £160 for one day's demo recording. Book now.
Great for Singles, EPs and Albums. I like to think I offer a more personalised service than most studios. Clients often thank me for being constructively critical and caring of their work. I'll take time to listen to your previous work and to music that inspires you including records you like the sound of. Each project is treated separately, recording and mixing techniques vary depending on style and time available. It is most common for this method to yield around 2 songs a day, however this can depend on your familiarity with the music being recorded. Band recording is priced per project, this allows the artist and myself to work to the highest of standards without counting the hours. Contact me to discuss your needs, I am always willing to talk in depth with you about your project.
- "We recorded and mixed with Graeme for two days in the most relaxed atmosphere I’ve encountered in a studio. Recording can be a stressful process at times, but all the time we spent in the studio with Graeme was a real pleasure. We had a strong idea of what we wanted our recordings to sound like, and Graeme took that on board and added his own ideas and wisdom to create something that the whole band are extremely pleased with." — Johnny, Kicking Television

If you're a solo artist or songwriter I can work with you to turn your songs into full tracks ready for sale or broadcast. This is one of my most popular services as I really work with you to realise your ideas. There are so many different ways this can go it's hard for me to list the possibilities. I can either produce your music using the superb sampler instruments and synthesisers at Silver Street or I can put you in touch with session musicians who can perform for you (usually at additional cost). email me or call to discuss your work.
- "A couple of years ago, I found this London producer listed in ‘The Stage’ entertainment industry newspaper who did, note for note, EXACTLY what I came to him with….and nothing more. And charged me. Then on a whim I googled ‘Reading based music producers’ and found Graeme and his team at Silver Street Studios. I got the same song produced affordably on demo and it was….TRANSMOGRIFIED!! I’m not only satisfied, but I now tell anybody I know in the trade about Graeme and Silver Street. They really PRODUCE. Can’t wait ’til our next project! Thanks again, Graeme." — Julian Bademosi, songwriter
I can professionally record and mix vocals to backing tracks or multitracks provided by you. If you make music at home using computer software the hardest thing to get right is the vocals. You can make use of our high end equipment and great acoustic space as well as our professional plug-ins and mixing methods. Don't forget, if you book a full day you can get your music mastered for free too. If you're a working singer or just want to re-record your favourite songs I can record and mix your voice into any backing track you provide. Send me an email or call to discuss your music.
- "I contacted Graeme as I was trying to find a good studio and engineer to ensure I could get the best quality album possible. I gave Graeme a detailed spec as to what I wanted as in the past I had been let down by the final quality of the mix. This was not a problem here as Graeme is a perfectionist. He would re record vocals that didn't sound spot on and would not pass on the final mastered album until he was certain he could not do anything more to improve things. I will definitely use Graeme again and would recommend his work in a heart beat." — Jamie Trick, singer
