Second Chance Blown

“Mastering an album is essential nowadays. So if you have to do it, do it with someone who knows what you are trying to achieve, and then manages to make it sound even better. For us, that someone was John Nicholls.”

“Working with John was a pleasure. He listened to the songs and made some small, but helpful suggestions with a calm, patient approach. The raw tracks already sounded great, but his mixes took them to another level and we’re delighted with the results.”

Without A Whisper – Wildflower

Gavin Martin

“I was very fortunate to work with Hastings heroes Ore Synthesizer Club on two tracks. John’s skill foregrounded the right measure of clarity and impact on the vocals, giving the thrust and tenderness required. Top notch.”

Mighty Sounds

“John is fantastic to work with. On top of being an all round lovely guy, he has a truly remarkable musicality, a brilliant pair of ears, and top-notch technical skills. He’s intuitive, collaborative and supportive, but also open, and able to give you an alternative perspective when needed. He’s definitely become my band’s regular go-to studio guru.”

Hayley Savage

“John mastered my debut solo 4 track EP in April 2020. I can’t tell you how grateful I was for the ease and speed of the process. He understood exactly the sound I was after and was positive and supportive from the get go. Exactly what you want for what feels like such a delicate and personal piece of work to pass on to someone. The mastering really was the cherry on the cake and gave me more confidence in the finished product.”
