    A few words from happy clients

    A mutual friend recommended Liam Gaughan to me when I was looking for a mixing engineer for Matt Stalker & Fables’ debut record in late 2010. It was a tiny-budget, tight-deadline sort of project. Liam was unfazed, and his dedication to quality was not proportional to the constraints of the project. An easy man to get along with from first meeting, it was evident that here was a man who lives and breathes music. He understands not just how digital recording and production work, but how music works; I regard this level of knowledge and passion as priceless. No amount of money can make an engineer develop passion that isn’t there. Liam did a great job with the mixing; he mastered the record subtly, passionate about retaining the full range of dynamics that defined our sound. The record was acclaimed by one magazine review as, “a masterpiece of care and craftsmanship”. Liam’s work is without doubt a contributing factor to such a description.

    For five days and nights in December 2012 we took Liam with us up to a converted Victorian primary school in Allenheads, Northumberland to begin recording our second album. Liam proved beyond question what a great guy he is to be around, and that his skills and the quality of his recording output are not dependent on tightly controlled studio environments or time-bound session lengths. Not only was he a total professional and flexibile in a sometimes challenging recording setting, he managed to capture its unique magic beautifully through his choice of mics, and micing, and he coaxed great performances from the band through a combination of tenacity and implicit belief in our music. Again, that stuff is priceless. We continue to work with Liam on the remaining recording of the album, due for a September 2013 release. Those who have heard previews to date have been grabbed by the timeless feel of the recordings, which owes a great deal to Liam’s, skill and patience.

    For all of the above reasons, after two full-length albums, an EP, and a single, Liam remains our favourite pair of ears.


    Matt Stalker & Fables




    Liam Gaughan recorded our first EP back in June 2010. The process of recording at his home studio was perfect for us, allowing us to travel backwards and forwards between our rehearsal room and studio without the pressures of having to record everything in one go. There were no time constraints. In this way, we were able to sit back and address all aspects of the recording to the fine detail. The quality of the finished product is unquestionable. Liam has helped us receive vast amount of airplay on Chris Moyles (BBC Radio 1), Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson (BBC6 Music) as well as a whole host of local BBC shows. Our track 'Broken Record' reached #1 in the national unsigned AR chart and was voted Best Of MySpace in December 2010. We are continuously asked about the production on our tracks, and it is to Liam 'Weez' Gaughan that we owe the credit.

    Probably our favourite thing about using Liam is his approachability an patience. After only a couple of hours in the studio with Weez we had built up quite a rapport, and felt comfortable bouncing all of our ideas off him. Liam is open to any suggestions / ideas yet always gives an honest opinion and fantastic advice. Not only this but he has plenty of ideas of his own up his sleeve which he can't wait to decorate your music with to give it that 'next level' vibe. We have built up an absolute trust between each other and I can quite honestly say that we'd be stupid and probably lost recording with anyone else. He is the man.

    Liam is a very talented man. His knowledge of music, his patience and his ability to listen and understand the customers needs help make his work the highest of standards. He's great for bouncing ideas off - he will advise what is best and do his utmost to produce the best possible result. This man has plans. Use him.

    Talented. Creative. Patient. Weez.

    I can't begin to tell you how difficult music like that is to A. Write, B. Perform and C. Record to that kind of standard. That's extraordinary!

    Tom Robinson, BBC6 Music




    We would highly recommend Liam, he was easy to work with (patient!) and most importantly we are delighted with the final outcome! Big help that he's a great musician too so we could rely on his input musically as well as on the recording side of things! We look forward to being back in the studio with him again soon!

    Working with Liam was so easy,the fact that he's an accomplished musician helps with the whole recording process, it was like he was part of the band, in fact he was in a way, he played the lead solos on the keys for my songs, this guy's ace to work with and has my highest recommendation! Cheers Liam you're a star mate!

    Danny Apple



    OMGGGG I LOVE IT :D Ah, Now it is exactly how I imagined it would be. Well done and a big thank you! You're a genius!!

    Bangor University Cheerleaders



    I was recording with a band who had only rehearsed the material four days before entering the studio and we had never played with each other before. Needless to say the pressure was on! However, Liam's patience, good humour and ability to listen to the whole spectrum of the recording process was invaluable in making our jobs simple. His impartial ears helped us to make great choices in the sounds we used and the parts we settled on. I would recommend his talents to anyone looking for a confident, mature and dependable musician/ producer.

  • Showreel

  • Production An Overview

    Production is a very broad term, but when made simple, it is the act of creating a finished artistic product for a client, whether that be a band requiring a full studio album, a choir needing an on-site recording, a composer needing a final touch added to their mix, or even a corporate client requiring audio recordings for an automated phone system! Indeed, these are all jobs that Liam has handled previously.

    Liam's Approach

    Many producers/engineers fail to communicate with their musical clients as they are not experienced enough in the musical side of things to make a good band sound even better. If your producer is not on the same page musically, how can you expect them to give genuine valuable input on the end product? Liam has major experience in this area, with skills such as Arrangement, Scoring for extra musicians, and a strong musical ear for Texture, Tonality and Timbre which when coupled with extensive Music Technology experience, creates world class recordings.

    Technology

    Liam is a highly experienced Pro Tools engineer and uses this industry-standard platform extensively to work quickly and effectively with all types of clients and briefs.

    Musicians

    Working with Liam opens up your work to professional Electric Bass, and Electric Guitar recordings from an experienced performer. Along with this, Liam has links with the greatest working musicians in the area, including full brass ensembles, choirs, piano players, upright bass, and strings just to name a few!

    Finishing the Mix

    Liam's most active area of work is Mixing, and this is what can make or break a production, changing it from flat and lifeless, to an exciting audio experience which leaps out from your speakers.

    Location Location Location!

    Recording can take place in a variety of spaces. A lot of larger ensembles prefer the comfort of their usual rehearsal space and this can sometimes yield the best result for groups such as choirs and brass ensembles. Recording on location is quickly becoming more and more appealing to groups and Liam has done this countless times to achieve great results either from a fully live performance to an audience, or in the relaxed atmosphere he creates for bands to record. Liam also has a home recording studio which is ideal for tracking solo artists, overdubs, editing, mixing, and mastering. For bands, Liam has links with many larger rooms in the North East to capture Drum Kits and/or full band performances. He also engineers frequently at Base HQ Studios in Newcastle Upon-Tyne.

    So, if you feel your music deserves the care and attention required to make it sound at it's best, please do not hesitate to contact Liam by clicking below.
