Life Update

Lots been going on for me in the last twelve months or so to keep me from updating the website. After many years living in London and more recently New York, I’ve moved lock, stock and barrel to beautiful Devon in the South West of England.

Work Update

Last year I parted company with an artist that I had worked with off and on for the previous 14 years. Without going into details, it was the right thing for me to do, and I’m now looking forward to working on new and exciting projects.

Swing Out Sister

Recently, I’ve again joined forces with the amazing Swing Out Sister. My first ‘SOS’ shows were back in the early 1990s and over the subsequent years I’ve done many happy tours with them.

When they began promoting their wonderful new album ‘Almost Persuaded‘ I was very happy to be invited back to mix FOH. That started out with a sold out tour of Japan then a recent return trip for festival shows in Tokyo and Kobe. On May 5th 2019 ‘SOS’ played a sold out show at Cheltenham Town Hall as part of the Cheltenham Jazz Festival (see the Facebook videos below). Upcoming ‘SOS’ shows planned include the ‘On Blackheath‘ Festival in July 2019.

Japan & UK Festival Audio

Warm thanks go to both SSE Audio, Clair Global Japan and their great crews, for their excellent service at the recent festival shows. A big thank you also to Dan Bennett at SSE Audio for letting me visit, prior to the Japan festivals, to familiarise myself with the Avid S6L console I was about to use for the first time, with no soundcheck. Thanks also to Shure UK and Shure Japan for supplying us with a set of beautiful sounding KSM8 vocal microphones.

  • I love Swing out Sister been following them for years, I have every album they’ve made and did get to meet Corrine and get all the albums signed when they played the Stables in Milton Keynes…. I’m so envious of you Dave….. So I have one question…. When are they coming back to the UK…. As also I lost the photo I had taken of me and Corrine….. And I’d like to take another one.

    • Hi Andy, the next UK Swing Out Sister show that I know of is at the OnBlackheath festival in July. There’s a link to it in the article. I’m sure Corinne would oblige with another photo if you see her.
