MASTERING
ENGINEER

Christian joined Abbey Road at the age of 19. Starting off in the copy rooms, he eventually graduated to the role of mastering engineer and has since gone on to master several award-winning no.1 albums as well as soundtracks to no.1 films from both sides of the Atlantic.

Christian has mastered albums by some of the biggest names in pop and rock including Ed Sheeran, Keane, Eliza Doolittle, Blur, The Temperance Movement and Gabrielle Aplin. He is also in demand as an engineer for film soundtracks and worked on box office-topping films including Gravity (no.1 in both the US and the UK), Prince Of Persia, two Harry Potter films and The Master - composed by Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood.

Using a combination of analogue gear combined with the newest digital software Christian has mastered tracks for huge worldwide indie, pop, rock, dance and folk acts including LCD Soundsystem, Radiohead, Mumford and Sons, Guillemots, Coldplay, Ben Howard, Franz Ferdinand, Tuneyards, Ariel Pink, Bryan Ferry, Beachwood Sparks, You Me At Six, Swedish House Mafia, Laura Marling and Elvis Presley.
An expert on cutting vinyl, Christian is also adept at cutting tracks directly to vinyl, something that he was able to enjoy doing most recently for Future Islands who cut an exclusive track ‘The Chase’ live to lacquer for Record Store Day 2015. 

He is also highly respected for his work on international releases for artists including India’s Vijay Award-winning Mayakkam Enna Team as well as other Bollywood releases.

Christian remains a full time music enthusiast, and, not limited to the studio, still plays live in a band as well as recording as a multi-instrumentalist and has played at many festivals including Secret Garden Party. He also collects analogue gear, from synths to outboard, and as well as playing live also regularly records and mixes tracks – making him truly involved with every aspect of the process behind music creation.
