Freddie Light

Senior Runner

As with most engineers, Freddie’s musical career started out as an instrumentalist accompanying performers and playing in bands. Music granted him the opportunities to play in a wide variety of ensembles and groups around the world. 
 
His interests eventually turned towards engineering and production, so Freddie set his sights on Abbey Road Studios and headed to university to study Music and Sound Recording. From there, he was able to secure himself a placement year with us here at Abbey Road. A year of studio work cemented Freddie’s career path and desire to return after completing his studies. Since then he has done just that and became a permanent member of the engineering team in 2021.
 
Freddie has been lucky enough to work with some of the industry’s most exciting artists, including Kendrick Lamar, Yussef Dayes, Jimmy Page, Elton John, Glass Animals, Maverick Sabre and a host of others. 
 
“One of the biggest privileges of my job is that I get to see people’s fresh ideas every day, be it the first time someone writes a lyric or plays a riff. I get to witness that moment and be a part of the process. Seeing people excited about being in the studio makes me excited about being in the studio.”
