Mixing and Mastering with the amazing Frank Turner

I met Sleeping Souls drummer and latterly Sad Song Co all-rounder Nigel Powell many years ago. This was through our mutual friend Emm Gryner.

At the time, Nigel was drummer in Dive Dive and he asked me to mix a few of their tracks. I started with the brilliant song Good Show which I mixed in my spare bedroom! Later, the band morphed into Frank Turner’s backing band, the Sleeping Souls. Eventually, Nigel persuaded Frank to let me have a go at mixing some of his tracks. This started with all the demos for the Positive Songs For Negative People LP.

I then reworked a couple of these and mixed a couple of new ones for the extra tracks for the Mittens EP. Later I mixed the entire soundtrack for the Show 2000 DVD included with deluxe editions of Songbook in 2017. Later, in 2019, Universal released the audio in shortened form as a standalone album which I mixed, edited and mastered at The Music Mill in Devon.
