producer / engineer / MIXER / MUSICIAN

After finding his groove as an Assistant Engineer at Studios 301 and Albert Studios, Dan has slowly but surely made his way through the east coast music scene becoming a regarded studio staple. Having managed to work alongside some excellent names: George Michael, Boy George, Amy Shark, Sigrid, Daniel Johns, Xavier Rudd, Bernard Fanning, Gurrumul, Kram, The Waifs, Delta Goodrem, A$AP Ferg, illy & George Maple over the years, all the while absorbing wisdom from many producers and engineers alike to create his unique skillset and take on the creation of music. Dan Originally started out at the now defunct BJB Studios alongside the founders; Chris Townend, Scott Horscroft and producer Eric J. Dan was soon after poached by Studios 301, he quickly became part of the Sydney facilities furniture and was then sent up to run their Byron Bay Facility as the in-house Engineer for several years, namely as the right hand man to Grammy winning Producer/Engineer Nick DiDia.

Now back in Sydney as an independent for the past 5 years, Dan currently resides as in-house  Engineer / Producer for Forbes St Studios & Sony Studios. Dan now also has his own personal studio space where he is based. Throughout these studios Dan is seen producing for a plethora of underground psych bands to engineering for the ACO (Australian Chamber Orchestra) to making records for bands like Zeahorse or tracking drums for Flyying Colours to working with bands like Deep Sea Arcade to engineering for Peter Garrett, Troye Sivan, Joe Jonas or Delta Goodrem.  Whilst amidst all this, finding time to jam and delve into the world of analog synths with 70's psych wanderers 'Turtle Skull'.

Recently Dan has been sewing his way toward the initial seedling of the writing process; helping artists refine, rework and re-formulate their songs wherever they see fit. Taking advantage of his humble studio setup allowing Dan to fit into the vibe with folk and indie electronic artists, grunge bands, garage bands psychedelic bands or modern rock bands, almost any music maker open to letting Dan take the helm and meld his modern technology with the classic vintage gear he loves. Dan has been making his presence a necessity from the birth of your tracks right through to the final mix.

After years of pondering and conceptualising a place for artists and creatives alike to have a safe haven for expressing and creativity, it all seemed to just fall into place rather organically and relatively quickly. The studio, which I currently reside and share with renowned Producer/Engineer Dylan Adams, is a place that appeared for me through a chance conversation with Dylan. After a brief visit it only seemed to make sense for me to come in and help build on the already vibed and geared out studio. Having since utilised it for tracking bands to overdubbing and mixing. This studio can and will make your records burn, with the small but powerful arsenal both Dylan and myself have curated whilst attaining a strong stockpile of instruments that were made to get the job done, it seems I've been able to do just that, Since opening I've produced records for; Zeahorse, Lucy Lowe, Fern, Hunter Adams, Mamajae, Charlie Gradon, Doni Raven, Turtleskull, Comacozer, The Baroness, Luke Howell, Lord Dodongo and a bunch of other bands I'm probably forgetting (soz) Rest assured this place is retaining the stress free and inspiring environment I set out to create and I believe the outcomes are speaking for themselves.
