I’ve been recording a new EP’s-worth of material with Emma and the Fragments. Recorded at Baker St Studio with Danny Monk, it was mixed & mastered at home – SSL all the way for recording and mixing. There’s a taster video made by Doug Rimmington here.

Last year I took part in a series of blind listening tests for Aston Microphones, which led to the development of their new Starlight small-diaphragm condenser microphone.
