“It’s a really beautifully produced record. It’s sumptuous analog production with clever little flourishes…reminding me of Jonathan Wilson, the production style”

After studying Music Production at Newcastle University, David went on to spend the following four years playing, writing and touring as part of the band, Tiny Dancers who achieved two top 40 singles. The band recorded their debut album ‘Free School Milk’ at Cornwall’s ‘Sawmills' Studio with legendary producer John Leckie, during which time David learnt invaluable lessons about the attention to detail, professional attitude and control of pace that goes into the understanding and recording of successful material.

For Ophelia’s debut album

At Sheffield’s ‘Axis’ studios, Sheffield, shortly after Tiny Dancers disbanded, David was able to develop and hone his skills as an engineer and producer working with Artist’s including Richard Hawley and longtime collaborator’s Slow Club.

When the opportunity arose to create his own studio - David enlisted the help of friend and mentor Mike Timm to build a comfortable, creative and professional space that gave him the freedom of running his own ship. In the short time since opening it’s doors, Tesla Studios has been host to many great Artists, with David at the helm producing work for Charles Watson, Pete Williams, Slow Club, The Hosts, Hot Soles, C.A Smith, Michael Malarkey, The Crookes, High hazels, Mayor McCa and Ming City Rockers amongst others to critical success.

Currently working on a Group Listening 12”, Alan Power’s debut album alongside Jack Ladder and Charles Watson and mixing Dlina Volny’s debut album.
