Known for his explosive ‘over the top’ sonic signature and famously unhinged production methods, Stephen has been crafting bombastic technicolour maximalist records with amazing artists for almost two decades now.
He started his career at the world-famous Chamber Studio in Edinburgh
( Mogwai, The Vaselines, Snow Patrol, etc ) around the year 2000.
It was here that he recorded Amanda Palmer ( Dresden Dolls ) ‘Leeds United’ the debut single from her solo LP for RoadRunner Records USA, just before leaving to become an Independent Record Producer.
Would you like to work with Stephen on your latest song?
“A one-of-a-kind producer, who has mastered the knack of creating an otherworldly universe tailored specifically to each individual artist. His passion and dedication to every project that he works on is unparalleled. I’ve yet to meet a producer of his age who is so well versed with the audio production techniques of those who came before him, yet able to bring those styles to the present day with a modern sensibility. A rare bird that makes him utterly unique.”— HoneyBlood
“Stephen A Watkins is a passionate wild man who creates exciting music!— Echo Machine
A pleasure to work with.
If you want to create something that stands out in a world full of dull music then go to him! My band recorded a full length album with Stephen, an experience we will never forget. Cannot recommend him highly enough.”
“— Ava Love
Stephen A Watkins can only be described as a mad scientist genius of music production, Like ‘Rick’ from ‘Rick and Morty’. Much better looking though.
He always wanted us out of our comfort zones
We were allowed to experiment with no inhibitions.
We are pumped with the results!”
“The Man is a wizard!— Rylah
If you’re looking to step outside the box a little and make something totally unique then I highly recommend working with Stephen A Watkins. We had the best time in the studio and didn’t want to leave! My band will certainly be back!”
