Orpheus Studio Featured Tracks (2014)

Here are some of our recent favourite tracks recorded at Orpheus Studio.

These are all hosted on our SoundCloud profile, so do check back as we update the playlist periodically to give an overview of the kind of recordings we have been doing. Thanks to the artists for allowing us to share their music with you. Find out more about the artists by following the links below to their individual websites and check out their testimonials regarding Orpheus Studio and Richard Campbell.

The Departed - We have been working with Orpheus and Richard for over one year. We found the studio by chance and now wouldn't go anywhere else. The studio facilities are superb and Richard's technical and musical ability is second to none. We record using a full day slot (which is the minimum required realistically for a single track plus full mixing). Richard is very tuned in to artist requirements and this makes recording with him both hassle free and good fun. The results are as good as we could find in any of the much more expensive studios and Richard's excellent capability on live bass/drums mean no need for studio musicians and all the difficulties/delay/expense that can bring to a project. We will continue to work with Richard and look forward to completing our album and beyond with him.
Christian Buratti -
Jay Fraser - Richard adopted an enthusiasm equal to mine in terms of the album concept and approached each song with unwavering diligence. This gave me confidence in what we were doing and a great atmosphere to do it.
Rezinwolf - Richard is a pleasure to work with, I think he knows our songs better than we do! Plus he's got plenty of great, helpful advice and if he managed to put up with us guys he's got great patience, record with him now!!!!
MLR (Michael Lynch Revived) - I have been recording for quite many years now, and this was one of the best sounds I've heard. I am particularly amazed with the drum sound. And also your role beyond the technical aspects has been crucial, I just wanted you to know. You managed what every great producer should be able to do - making the band they're collaborating with sound as good as they possibly can.
Robin Joel Sangster - Richard at Orpheus Studio is a GENIUS!

I was in there 3 days and not only was he pretty much an expert at every single instrument you can think of but he's also the nicest and most professional Producer/Engineer I have come across.

The excellent equipment, surroundings, good vibe and fantastic final product are enough to keep you coming back again and again.

Richard Campbell - Chief Engineer

Richard has a first class degree in Music Technology, and many years of experience in studio recording. He has worked with a huge variety of artists, in a wide range of styles, and is dedicated to realising the full potential of every recording.

He has all the skills, understanding and diligence required of a professional studio engineer, but what sets him apart in this role at Orpheus Studio is that he is also a very talented musician with a wealth of session experience. He plays many instruments to a high standard (you can see him at work on the videos page), and he will happily lend his skills to your recordings. Richard also has a thorough grasp of musical theory thanks to his years studying classical music, and can offer as much or as little input in composition/arrangement as you desire.

Richard is always happy to discuss your project requirements and ideas, so feel free to get in touch by email (info@orpheusstudio.co.uk) or phone (07545 024227) to start planning your recording with Orpheus Studio.
