Christchurch’s Clevetown studios is owned and operated by Steve Fowler- who as well as possessing great producing skills- is also a demon guitarist. Jimmy Buffett sings of having “an earful of Patsy Cline”… well… Steve has an earful of “ guitarish goodness” on any given day ( unless something from a bottle has taken revenge) and always manages to capture the sound I want.
Above: at Clevetown. Good stuff happens here.
Below:The other regular leading musical light on many recordings is Christchurch musician/pianist John Bevin.

Like Steve, there’s not much he can’t do- and together they know many of the best musicians in town,all of whom have been fantastic … Mark Hobson, Backyard Davy…
