Recording Studio

Technology can do many things but it can’t create a great live performance!

“When I signed my 1st Publishing deal with Peer Music in London in the early 90’s, my publisher Stuart Ongley gave me an advance with which to build my own home studio. I headed off to Turnkey on Tottenham Court Rd and a young guy, Jamie, kitted me out with a Fostex R8, a Studiomaster 16 track desk an AKG 535 a micro limiter a Quadraverb an M1 and an afternoon with him to teach me all I needed to know!

I recorded a few records for myself and others in that studio and I learned a lot along the way – most importantly – no matter how fancy your equipment – it’s about capturing the performance, one way or another.


Cushy Studio Spec

The Room

Cushy is open plan and has a very relaxed and comfortable feel. There is plenty of natural light. The acoustic is very balanced avoiding the dead space atmosphere found in other studios.

The studio is in a detached building and has its own entrance. It opens to a lovely garden space.  It is fully centrally heated and has a shower room, so can accommodate short stay residential clients.
