The Music Farm is is owned and run by Tom Tyson, a Member of The British Academy of Composers and Songwriters, who at the age of just 17, became a professional musician.
Less than two years later he was working as bass guitarist with The Freddie Starr Band. After a one year stint with the band and after many T.V. and recording sessions, Tom joined American singer songwriter Gene Pitney and was to tour the world as a member of his band.
After several years touring, Tom decided to return to his native Cumbria and establish a recording studio. The result is the 'Music Farm', a professional studio in an idyllic two and a half acre setting overlooking the Lakeland fells.
Tom has now been in the recording field for over 25 years and has become a successful writer/producer, earning his first gold disc with Simon Cowell in 1998. Working as both producer and session musician, Tom has recorded in many famous studios, including George Martin's 'Air Studios', Trever Horn's 'Sarm', C.T.S. Studios Wembley, 'Advision' and 'First Run Studios' Nashville USA.
Lee Shackley has been engineering at The Music Farm for the last 8 years, as well as working live with acts such as Ocean Colour Scene, Glasvegas and Sandi Thom. As a musician he has worked with Tom Hingley, Carolynne Poole and Christina Novelli. He has shared a stage with many other artists too such as N-Dubz and Madness.
Lee is a great engineer and talented musician, and I am very proud to have him as part of our team.
