“Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.” – Ryunosuke Satoro

I have been lucky at Lionheart Productions to have had the privilege to collaborate with amazingly talented musicians and singers, from the reggae and dub at Lionheart Recordings, to the eclectic musical voyages at Full Cycle Project and including the many artists and bands who's projects I have engineered in the studio.


There has also been co-production and co-writing projects that don't fall into the above categories, including work with spoken word poet David Jackson, rapper Finn Gray and local Ballydehob Kirtan group that I sing and play guitar with.
