Ian Shaw - Producer and Engineer

Welcome to my webpage!

I'm an award winning British record producer with chart success on both sides of the Atlantic. I've relocated from London to sunny Key West in the south Florida Keys where I work with local and international artists. I specialise in recording bands and acoustic music, singer songwriters, alternative, folk, rock, Americana and jazz.

What I do:

Recording live in Key West. Playing at one the island's music venues? I can make a full multitrack recording of your gig or event to ProTools. Take away the raw audio files or a full mix. It's an inexpensive way to offer your fan base something new, or use the recordings to generate more live work.
Mixing. I can produce a fresh, vibey, radio friendly mix with heart and British attitude! Working from your home or studio recordings, I mix on a ProTools HD2 rig through a genuine Neve, with a lovingly preserved collection of vintage analogue and valve outboard.

Studio recording in Key West. Work with your existing recordings or from scratch; production, editing, vocal recording and comping is my forte, overdubbing and programming.
