A J C  recording

— Michael Threlfall, NESH

"We worked with Adam on our debut E.P "Nesh". It was an absolute pleasure to work with him. His enthusiasm knew no bounds and most importantly, neither did his patience. Working with Adam was like having another member of the band who would offer ideas and ways to improve all aspects of the recordings to get them where they needed to be. It's not often you come across someone with the knowledge and aptitude to back up a sheer love for what they do but Adam certainly falls into that select group. We would recommend Adam to artists of all levels and we most definately will be working with him again."



My name is Adam James, I am 23 years old, home studio owner and freelance audio engineer based in Wigan, Greater Manchester. I love seeing an idea turn into a song and every step that happens in-between. I am looking to record musicians who have a passion for their instrument and a drive to make music. I work with Artists from many different genres, specialising in recording and mixing

After spending 6 months in Nashville I got to work on multiple sessions as a student in one of the worlds most prestigious studios which gave me great insight into increasing my productivity and efficiency.  I have also been the client in recording facilities over the years and the positive studio experiences have been implemented into how I work.


I am always trying to expand my knowledge of recording and mixing with the help of musicians from all over the world. I would love to work with you. Please get in touch and let's make music!
