Producer|Engineer

Dale has over 15 years in the production industry as a professional audio and music producer and engineer and session musician. He graduated from SAE (School of Audio Engineering) in 1996 and has combined his musical passion and experience as a performer with his production skills to be involved in over 50 mostly independent music releases either behind the console or in front of the mic as a multi-instrumentalist, as well as various post production projects. The most notable of these have been procuding or engineering albums and EPs for Josh Cunningham (The Waifs), Mike Duchesne (The Voice 2012) and Anna Weatherup (The Voice 2013) with Anna's 'Nearer' album (for which Dale produced, engineered and played guitar and bass on) enjoying time in the iTunes inspirational charts during 2013. His post-production credits include work as a sound supervisor, location sound recordist, editor and re-recording mixer on various broadcast TV, documentary and feature film projects. He can also occasionally be spotted as a live sound engineer.

Not only does Dale love the psychology behind producing great music that reaches people - striving to bring an artist or band's best performance out of them in the studio, but he also is particularly dedicated to applying the best audio techniques that help to facilitate that. Yes, Dale is a gear junkie and a technology tragic..probably because of his early interest in electronics as a child.

 

Besides working in a freelance capacity, predominantly operating out of his home project space - Honest Crow Studio, Dale currently manages Psalter Studios; an audio and music production facility on Sydney's North Shore, where he is also the senior producer/engineer. Examples of his work can be heard in the soundcloud player on this page.

With the progression of the internet, Dale has a passion lately for mixing music projects via internet collaboration for artists and groups. He can also create tracks as a session guitarist, bassist or drummer providing parts across a wide range of genres and music projects, sending the completed tracks back to you or your engineer.

 

If you would like to chat to Dale about your next audio or music project, get in touch via the contact page. He'd love to discuss some ideas with you.
