What people say

I’ve worked with Jim for several years now and he is an outstanding talent covering so many bases, multi-instrumentalist and singer/ vocal arranger/ music producer. He has everything to go far in this business. He is also such a pleasure to work with.

Nick Patrick

Music Producer

It was truly an honour to be involved in James’s recent album project. The songs and arrangements were terrific, clever and varied, and he’d used fabulous musicians, engineers and studios which made my job of mixing and mastering the record an extremely pleasurable process.
George Shilling

Record Producer and Record Engineer

I have mixed a number of projects that Jim has been involved with over the last four years. My experience of him is that he is a very talented musician/programmer and arranger full of enthusiasm. Nothing is too much trouble. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
