Michael Threlfall - Frontman of NESH
"We worked with Adam on our debut E.P "Nesh". It was an absolute pleasure to work with him. His enthusiasm knew no bounds and most importantly, neither did his patience. Working with Adam was like having another member of the band who would offer ideas and ways to improve all aspects of the recordings to get them where they needed to be. It's not often you come across someone with the knowledge and aptitude to back up a sheer love for what they do but Adam certainly falls into that select group. We would recommend Adam to artists of all levels and we most definately will be working with him again."
Alice Nancy - Singer Songwriter
"Recording with Adam is awesome. He’s experienced and skilled as a producer and always makes you feel at home in his studio. He’s a funny, relaxed guy so you always have a laugh and enjoy yourself when you record with him, which I think is super important if you want to come out with a recording you’re happy with. I’ve recorded both punk music and chilled singer-songwriter stuff with Adam; he’s versatile and works with you to achieve the sound you want and I always walk away happy- can’t recommend him enough!"
Jack Rothwell - Lead Guitarist for the Last Reserves
“Adam is not only an amazing producer but a great mate of the band! We couldn’t recommend him enough to anyone wanting to have their music recorded. He is easy-going and really listens and understands how you want your music to be portrayed, with no compromises! He has high-quality recording equipment and facilities to accommodate a wide range of instruments and has numerous examples of work with different genres. In the case of our style, we wanted to maintain a late 70s Punk rawness but also wanted to incorporate modern recording/mixing techniques; Adam certainly delivered and we had lots of laughs while recording!”
Sophie Elizabeth - Singer Songwriter
"I’ve worked with Adam on various occasions over the past year. I had never really worked with recording music before but he made the whole process a lot easier. The experience was really interesting and I learnt a lot. Adam was extremely professional at every section of the process and produced some incredible pieces. His passion for the work he made was clear and shown in the music that we made together; his attention to detail was helpful and beneficial. He was clear about what he wanted introduce to the tracks but simultaneously made sure to keep the music both real and personal to the sound that I wanted to make, something that I will always appreciate. I would always heartily recommend Adam’s skill set and professional personality to anyone. He helped me to create some incredible music (if I do say so myself) that I am extremely proud of. A huge thank you to Adam!"
Yan Pietrzak - Music Technology student at Huddersfield university
“Recording the Electric Thoughts EP with Adam was a brilliant experience. It was an opportunity to explore new musical directions and discover different recording and mixing techniques. His way of working is very efficient and focused, almost stripped back to just the essentials. This approach works great for rock, metal, hip-hop and other similar styles; and leaves more room for ornaments and enhancements to be added after the initial recordings, which creates a great sense of development both for the music and production.”
Olivia Atkinson - The Shalala Vines
"Adam Callan, certainly a great person to work with musically. I know for a fact that without "The Shalala Vines" and everything we went through together I wouldn't be the musician I am today. Because of Adam, I think about writing music in such a unique way now. My philosophy on composition changed dramatically because of the work I did with the Vines and all of the band inspired me so much and helped me learn how to be a better producer, musician and performer! I would definitely recommend making music with Adam. He's an amazing producer and mixed and recorded pretty much all of our latest EP 'Electric Thoughts'! "
Phil Shacklady - Drummer for the Last Reserves
"Adam is such a sound guy. You'll get really great results from recording with him. Not only is he a great producer, but he's also really easy going and always willing to experiment with microphone and production techniques to get a great sound. I've recorded drums with him so many times, and each time the sound gets better and better. My band Last Reserves have recorded with him a number of times and it's always a good laugh. At the same time though, you get brilliant results. Can't recommend him enough!
Hollie Walls - Winstanley College student
“Adam is literally the most amazing talented Cubase nerd I've ever met. From helping set up microphones, to helping produce my entire project he was a super star. From the start I wasn't a wiz on Cubase and it took me basically an hour to open the program and set up a mic. Adam came into college as a volunteer for music students and he willingly accepted my request to play guitar for my song. He took his own time to perfect the song, which resulted in me getting 2 distinctions! Not only is he an extremely talented guitarist but he sat for hours and helped me write my log book, helping me use specific terms and explaining what they all meant.”
