Make your Songs a reality, in a warm, friendly environment
The SONG and the VOCALS are by far the most important part of any recording.

At Soundshed Music we specialise in working with you to get the best out of
your SONG and your VOCALS first, before we add further production.

Without a great song and a stunning vocal, you are selling your song and yourself short.

Listen to some samples of music produced with us:

Artist - Cletis Carr
Song - I Don't Know

Cletis finished recording an e.p. at Soundshed.
He wanted to create a sound similar to Ryan Adams' album 'Ashes & Fire' - nice choice!
This song is my particular favourite of mine - and yes, he really is for the U.s. - that's not a pretend accent:)
I used M/S stereo micing on his guitars to achieve a full guitar sound that would fill up the sparse stereo image.

Cletis comments "... I recorded my seventh release, Stones at Soundshed: a five track EP. We went for a pure acoustic sound with a live feel and minimal overdubs. Stewart's intuition and natural song-sense was invaluable in helping me find the right flavour for the tracks - and Freddie the Dog's bark at the end of one of the takes will be featured in the re-mastered director's cut, available on picture disc and 8-track cartridge :) "


Artist - Steve Jewell Trio
Song - Hesitation Blues

Steve Jewell Trio is a Piano, Double Bass and Drums Jazz ensemble. Mainly instrumental, but this track features Greg McClain the drummer on vocals.

Steve Jewell added "Soundshed Music offers a friendly service for all aspiring recording artists including myself who are a bit nervous about performing in a  recording studio.They have a lovely grand piano and they put you at ease as much as is possible in a recording situation."


Artist - Ghost Train
Song - Alice in Wonderland'

We produce a lot of acoustic music, but Ghost Train is anything but acoustic! Everything louder than everything else! So much fun working with these guys - crank it up guys and we'll meet you at the end :)
One track from Ghost Train's latest recording at Soundshed Music,
titled 'Alice In Wonderland'. Punk/ garage/ psychedelic rock! Gotta love the mayhem.

There are many, many songwriters out there

As a songwriter you need a recording that stands out from the crowd and reflects your originality
