Pedestrian zero is the recording/performing name for Toby Hawkins.

Toby is a long term friend and collaborator - in many ways working with him has taught me how to do what I do. For the last few years Toby has written, recorded and released one song a month..... every month for three years.
We’ve had a host of epic musicians play on these tracks too. All of which are available for hire for your project if needed.
For each of these songs Toby employed me to produce, play on, engineer and mix them. 
You can find this epic body of work via the link below.


Steve and I have been working together for a long time. I have had the privilege of seeing him develop as a song writer and performer for the last few years.

In 2015 his first secular EP 'Life Stories' was released. It was very well received and helped lead to a very busy 4 years of gigging. In 2018 Steve was signed to Engineer Records and work on his debut album was completed. This is due to be released in April 2019.

All tracks were produced, engineered and mixed by myself.

I met Janine through a mutual musician friend, and Im very glad I did. She has become a good friend and I always enjoy working with her. She has a contagious zeal for life and creativity. This makes for a very exciting music project indeed.

Janine got in touch about wanting to do a full length album. After chatting we decided that we needed some project management and pre production. I was happy to help steer her in the right direction. 

This ended up being a location recording. I took the mobile rig to Wales and we made a record!

The whole project took 4 months from start to finish and the end product is a wonderful example of what can happen if you're intentional with your music. She crowdfunded the entire project and has needed up with something really fresh and exciting.

Orfila came into the studio as a featured artist on one of Steve Hewitt's tracks. Everyone had a good time and they decided that they wanted me to produced and record their 5 year anniversary E.P.

It was time to get my Country on. 

I really enjoyed working on this record. Clean and polished Country music production is just a joy to mix. 

This little E.P. was very well received by the UK Country scene. Maverick magazine named them their 'One To Watch'.

Two of the three tracks were featured on BBC Introducing Track of The Day!

After moving to London I met FACE guitarist Matt Shaw who quickly became a friend. We started talking and he mentioned that his band wanted to revive some songs from the early days. The band had just started gigging again and wanted an exciting recording to help pull in more gigs.

I went in for rehearsals to help choose the tracks from the back catalogue and work on arrangements.

The tracks have come out wonderfully punchy and energetic.
