Graham Kendrick, Adrian Snell, Bryn Haworth, Noel Richards, Iona etc. etc. have been some of the many artists he has been associated with over the years. He somehow manages to combine his busy life as a recording studio owner, sound engineer and record producer, with playing guitar as a member of Noel Richards' band - for relaxation!

An accomplished session drummer and percussionist Jon also played with Celtic rock band The Crack.

  Phil Baggaley: - songwriter and producer. Known to many as 'half of the popular duo formerly known as Phil & John. Phil's ability as a songwriter has been known for a long time, but the continuing creative surge is again apparent in the writing of the music for new projects with new songs, which are both powerful and very moving.

   Mark Edwards: - keyboards, arrangements and programming. A very busy and talented session musician in great demand; one of his recent projects was recording the new album with Roddy Frame (Aztec Camera).
