For over ten years I’ve been recording bands. For too many of those years I made records in windowless rooms. Over that time I have managed to escape with bands in tow to make some incredible records in amazing places. Out of that excitement of finding the right space for the right band to make a record, Eek! was born.

If you want to get in touch and have a chat about a possible project together just give me a call or an email using the details above.
