Over the last few years I have been involved in producing albums for people and have built up a wee portfolio of albums that I have produced. I never deliberately went out to become a producer of albums, it was really only to help out a few people at the time while they were in the studio.I suppose that is how many people get into it.
The first Album I produced was Ann Martin's CD 'Co?' along with Malcolm Jones. He's a bit of a perfectionist..I hope he doesn't mind me saying that! For me it was a great experience working with Malcolm and maybe some of his expertise rubbed off there!
The next album was my Brother Allan and Mairead Stewart's album "Fhuair mi Pog" this again was me helping out at the time but it turned out to be a well received and popular album so I ended up doing a few more..
The picture on the page is of a few of the albums that I've produced, in order, top to bottom;
1. Julie Fowlis- Mar a tha mo Chridhe
2. Dochas - The First Album
