We have a number of in-house and associated engineers with years of experience between them. Freelance engineers are also welcome so if you already have someone lined up then the studio can be hired on a room only basis.


Stu Matthews

Stu has been running the studio and engineering for 15 years. During this time heʼs recorded most of the bands on the Invada roster and also worked on albums by Portishead and The Horrors. In his spare time he makes beats as one third of Quakers.


Rik Dowding

Rik has 25 years experience in both studio engineering and live sound. Heʼs currently mixing front of house for The XX and Portishead but when heʼs in town he works sessions for us and also has his own mastering service, Sonic Mastering.


John Pickford

John has been engineering and producing recordings for over 25 years, working with many of the South Westʼs finest musicians and artists including Portishead. An unashamed classic gear junkie and valve aficionado, John reviews studio hardware for Music Tech magazine as well as writing recording tutorials and features.
