A BUNCH OF TRACKS TO LISTEN TO...

Here’s a bunch of tracks that I’ve done recently. Many represent one track from a whole album or EP that I’ve worked on. In all the cases below I’ve Produced, Engineered and Mixed the material. The exception is Valerio’s tracks where Nick mixed all of and tracked some it.

There’s a big mix of stuff in no particular order so feel free to root around. Follow SRR on Souncloud.

SOME PICS...

PEOPLE SAYING NICE STUFF...

Working with Nick was an absolute pleasure, from the first time I cold-called him right through to launching the EP we made together. His experience as both a musician and a producer really helped me get to grips with the process, whether it was suggesting minor edits to song structure or talking through different techniques for getting the snare sound I was after. He has a remarkable attention to detail and a 'no bullshit' approach, which suited me perfectly. As a relative novice it was also great to work with someone who made me feel totally comfortable and encouraged - Nick gave me confidence in what I was doing and even got me singing harmonies, despite my protestations! He also makes an excellent cup of coffee. I can't recommend him highly enough and I can't wait to make the next one.

My album wouldn't be here without the help of Nick from @spareroomrecord , a brilliantly talented recording and mixing engineer and who's has put up brilliantly with my paranoia and infinite demands. If you need to record some beautiful music, he's the man

‘I had the pleasure of working with Nick for 3 nights at the Green Note, London. He was fast, thought-ahead, created an excellent sound experience for the audience. He went above and beyond in his willingness to create ’smoothness’ for the performer and this is always appreciated. I asked if he had a studio, too, wanting to work with him again should a recording need come up while I am touring in the UK’

Spare Room provides a relaxed and creative environment that I thoroughly enjoyed working in. Nick and Hannah are very accommodating and will happily go to every length to reach your creative vision. It's nice to work with a balance of technical precision and creativity.

People don't always put it in a review I can share with you but pretty much everyone who hears my album has a LOT of love for the production job you guys did. For how you turned my dreary little songs into something so very special thank you xxx

If you want to make a record make one. If you want it to sound great and it to be fun make it with Nick

Nick not only has great technical skills, but he is consummate musician, and therefore knew what I wanted before I knew myself, and I am fussy. A very productive session
