The Windmill is a drum tracking studio in the base of an 18th century windmill, built in response to changes within the music industry here in the UK and elsewhere. Due to budget and time restrictions it’s not always possible to record drums the way you’d like. Here I’m able to offer flexibility to producers/artists and the opportunity to have live drums on tracks which in the past would have been programmed or looped.
Artists I’ve recorded for at The Windmill include Sam Smith, Dua Lipa, Alicia Keys, Cher, Fraser T Smith, Rik Wakeman, Taylor Swift, Snow Patrol, Alicia Keys, Ed Sheeran, Gary Barlow, Dermot Kennedy, Dua Lipa, Jessie Ware, Rumer, Gavin James, Birdy, Tom Odell, Take That, Fleur East, Ella Henderson, Jeff Lorber, Cher, James Morrison, Ronan Keating, Hamish Stuart and Seal. Producers that have hired the studio include Trevor Horn, Jamie Scott, Steve Lipson and Hans Zimmer, Lorne Balfe, Mark Taylor, Fraser T. Smith, Rob Shirakbari, Mike Spencer, Rollo Armstrong, Jeff Lorber and Steve Power.
My discography includes 58 top 10 albums. It also includes 17 Top 10 singles and to date, I’ve recorded 29 No. 1 albums and 10 No. 1 singles that have featured on various pop and rock charts around the world.
I’ve recorded with multiple artists over the last 20 years or so including Sam Smith, Alicia Keys, Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift, Cher, Robbie Williams, Seal, Cee Lo, Rumer, James Morrison, Ronan Keating, Enrique Iglesias, Celine Dion, Del Amitri, Birdy and Adele. I also played on the Terminator Genisys, Mission Impossible Fall Out, The Lion King 2019, Doctor Who Series 11 and Kung Fu Panda 3 movie and TV soundtracks.
