Asa has worked across many genres of music, from mainstream pop/rock/singer-songwriter right through to more left-field electronics, contemporary classical music and free jazz. He is equally comfortable recording in traditional studios as he is in concert halls, churches, homes and even busy seaside cafes.
Whether it’s Abbey Road, a wild New Zealand beach or his own North London studio, the aim remains the same: creating a comfortable, creative space for that much coveted magic to happen.
- Asa is especially interested in working with young up and coming songwriters, helping them develop a sound and refining their songs. Get in touch if you are looking for a producer to move things up a level.
