SINGING AND SONGWRITING

At Highbury Park music we are also specialised in songwriting and recording.

Songwriting/Artist Development

Our live-in producer Sam West, recently awarded to The OFFies, has 15 years of songwriting experience and has written and produced on many different albums with different artists. His wide palette of tastes has seen him produce and write music for Pop, Rock, Jazz, Country, Blues, Dubstep, EDM and Film and TV.

Songwriting is a wonderful art form and a very expressive tool and here at Highbury Park Music, we are looking to help you start, develop and/or refine that process for you. If you are a beginner or an artist looking to finish off some of your songs we can help you. We have a production suite that allows us to record, demo, experiment and capture your sounds with some lovely microphones. Let us help bring your ideas to life!

Artist Development Package – We can help you get your music from off the paper and onto Spotify and iTunes etc. Over a series of sessions, we can work towards developing an artist in many different ways; from improving musicianship, singing techniques, songwriting and developing a musicians sonic signature. Let us help to bring your music to life!
