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, Theophilus London, Daniel Johns, Xavier Rudd, Bernard Fanning, Gurrumul, Kram and The Waifs over the years, whilst absorbing wisdom from many producers and engineers alike. Originally starting out at the now defunct BJB Studios alongside the founders; Chris Townend, Scott Horscroft and producer Eric J. Dan was soon poached by Studios 301 shortly after and sent up to run their Byron Bay Facility as the in-house assistant for several years, namely as the right hand man to Grammy Winning Producer/Engineer Nick DiDia.

Now back in Sydney as an independent Producer/Engineer for the past 3 years, Dan has made his way as a regular of Studios 301, Forbes St Studios, Sony Music, Free Energy Device Studios and now his own personal studio space. Throughout these studios Dan is seen producing for a plethora of underground psych bands to engineering for the ACO (Australian Chamber Orchestra) to tracking vocals for electronic sensation JOY. to engineering for Peter Garrett
or Troye Sivan, whilst also 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. Fitting into the vibe with folk and indie electronic artists, all the way to rock and/or roll bands. Dan has been making his presence a necessity from the birth of your tracks right through to the final mix.

The studio..

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, as I've been recently completing single's for 'Lucy Lowe' and 'Fern' and hard at it working through an EP for songstress 'Hunter Adams', along with works in progress with Zeahorse, Mamajae, Charlie Gradon, Doni Raven, Dans own band Turtleskull and probably other bands I'm 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.
