Toby Hulbert

RECORDING 
Engineer.

Since joining Abbey Road as an assistant in early 2012 Toby has developed into a versatile and popular engineer, having already worked with talented artists such as such as Frank Ocean, Bat for Lashes, Alabama Shakes, Oh Wonder, Mumford & Sons, Kasabian & All We Are. He’s always on the look our for exciting up-and-coming artists to work with, and as a scout for music distribution site Spinnup Music he works alongside the A&R team at Island Records to find and develop new talent.

Having worked on many sessions at some of the top London studios including Air, Strongroom, Urchin, Miloco and Phoenix Sound, Toby is making a name for himself as a talented engineer and mixer. Although having developed during the digital era of music production, he's picked up many analogue recording and mixing techniques from working with top producers and engineers and Abbey Road's rich engineering history. He’s keen to use a hybrid approach, combining the speed and convenience of digital software with the character of analogue equipment. On sessions Toby brings an excitement for music and experimentation to his work wherever possible and aims to create a relaxed atmosphere where the artist can be creative.
Toby has diverse skills and expertise in audio and music. Following a degree in Music and Sound Recording and a placement year at Phoenix Sound in Pinewood Studios, Toby freelanced as an engineer, a sound editor at Shepperton Film Studios, a film composer's assistant and briefly at Universal Publishing. He has gained great experience in soundtrack recording and production working as 'score recordist' on titles such as Gravity, The Imitation Game, Suffragette (also 'score editor'), In The Heart Of The Sea and The Avengers. During the summer of 2015 he enjoyed a month working as 'digital scoring engineer' on the score for Ridley Scott's The Martian.

In his time outside Abbey Road, he writes and produces music for his band and composes for West One Music. Recent notable projects include recording for pop-duo Oh Wonder - strings on their self-titled debut album and a live session at the Pool - strings recording on Kasabian’s ’48:13’, mixing a live version of Gorgon City's single ‘Ready For Your Love’, recording vocals with Nina Nesbitt, as well as mixing for up and coming artists Love Nor Money, Tommy Ashby and Roxy P.
