“Stephen is my go-to mastering guy! I feel comfortable talking to Stephen about my mixes and things I often feel unsure about. Stephen has impeccable taste and has always turned work around quickly. He is transparent through the whole process and I would highly recommend his services.”

“Stephen is top notch. His attitude toward his work is clearly a matter of pride and self-fulfillment which means that what is returned to you is excellent from the start. Not to say that he isn’t wide open to revision or input, he is… It’s just to illustrate that his talent is inborn and thoughtful.”

– Joshua Blum, GpYr

“I was really happy with Stephen’s work on a recent EP – he was keen to work together to produce something I was happy with; he’s really skillful. The mastering was completely in line with the mood and feel of what I’d produced. It made such a difference to not really have to explain what I was after – Stephen seemed to intuitively know! I’d definitely recommend Tall Trees, and will certainly use them in the future.”

– Tina Hitchens, Tisla

“Stephen did an outstanding job on two recent projects of mine. Approaching both genres with great musicality and technical knowledge. All conducted with a friendly vibe, prompt delivery and great communication.”

– Joel Harries, 72%/solo

“Stephen did a blinding job for me recently, mastering an EP for vinyl and digi, very recommended”

– Stef Kett, Reciprocate/Shield Your Eyes

Recently used Stephen at Tall Trees Audio Mastering to master our new bands debut single. Was a great job from start to finish. Easy communication, prompt turn around, and a splendid result that we were really pleased with. Both members of the band run recording studios as well as playing in the band so we would only put our music in the hands of someone we trusted implicitly. Stephen listened to our requests, was easy to communicate ideas too and delivered exactly what we wanted. Great service and will definitely use again. Highly recommended. Thankyou.

“I worked with Stephen last year on my album ‘Live in Clifton Wood’. Stephen immediately understood what I wanted from the recordings and how I wanted them to sound. I was really happy with the depth and warmth of the end results. Stephen recognised the simple, unadorned quality of the recordings and mastered them appropriately and sensitively, letting the music stand for itself without anything getting in the way. Throughout the process Stephen communicated brilliantly, and was happy to take onboard feedback as we worked towards getting the finished results. I can highly recommend Stephen for any mastering needs!”

– Robin Allender

“Stephen works with meticulous care and professionalism, always centering his craft around the requirements of the artist. Stephens considerable technical aptitude and instinctive understanding of music language culminate in an outcome that is always sympathetic to the music. Stephen’s enthusiasm and conviction in his work is a joy to experience and I trust him intensely.”

– Luke Mawdsley, Maple Death Records / Mésange

“In my experience, Stephen was a thoughtful and tasteful mastering engineer who worked tirelessly to achieve a master that fulfilled all of my expectations. He is approachable and jargon-free which makes the process efficient and enjoyable.”

Paul Rafferty, Doomshakalaka – Moshi Moshi Records

– Annie Gardiner, Excellent Birds/Hysterical Injury
