Well it took far longer than necessary but FINALLY here is my first blog post. I suppose what you have to ask yourself now is "why did it take you so long?" That's a good question, hypothetical person, but the answer is quite simple... Read More >>
Samuel Howlett — New York City Recording Connection
Hey there! My name's Sam and I'm training to be a recording engineer at Abbot Street Studios in East London.
I'd never considered the technical side of music production until I started listening to electronic dance music when I was about 13. That got me interested in digital audio and the manipulation of sound and now here I am, years later, learning the trade and hopefully breaking into the industry once and for all.
It'd be easy to say I like all kinds of music but truthfully, I don't. A lot of it I just 'put up with', for want of a better term. So if I can take a song and do whatever I can to make it just that bit more pleasing to the ears, I know I've done myself and quite a few others a solid. In all seriousness though, I want every song to sound the best it can and it makes me happy knowing that I had a hand in achieving that.
At the end of the day, I'm a professional. Whatever your sound, I will work my hardest to get it exactly where you want it to be. Look no further for an engineer; I'm your man.
