Yasmine Hamdan



I’m co-rpoducing Yasmine’s new record with Luke Smith at Flesh & Bone Studios this month. I am very much enjoying working with Arabic lyrics; literal explanation is rarely possible, but the sound of the words and intention of Yasmine’s performance always conveys the meaning.


Seamus Fogarty at Big Jelly


I had a lovely time helping Seamus record at Big Jelly – along with his brother John on accordion, Emma Smith on violin and Aram Zarikian on drums (who took these photos).

Big Jelly is based in a beautiful chapel in Ramsgate and getting drum sounds in the big room (which also benefits from a slide) was a blast. Thanks to Mike and Al.
