Dr Phil Harding started at the Marquee Studios, London, engineering for acts such as The Clash, Killing Joke, Toyah and Matt Bianco. During the 1980s, Phil was chief mix engineer for Stock Aitken Waterman (PWL Studios), working with acts such as Dead or Alive, Mel & Kim, Bananarama, Rick Astley, Pet Shop Boys and Kylie Minogue. In the 1990s, Phil and Ian Curnow ran P&E Music Studios from The Strongroom Studio complex, producing hits for East 17 (including 'Stay Another Day'), Deuce, Boyzone and 911. Phil's first book, PWL from the Factory Floor (2010, Cherry Red Books), was followed by productions for Holly Johnson, Samantha Fox, Belinda Carlisle and Curiosity. He completed his doctorate in Music Production at Leeds Beckett University in April 2017. Mike Collins began his music recording career in 1981 as a songwriter-producer at Chappell Music Publishing, where he achieved chart success with leading Brit-Funk band Light of the World. As part of a vibrant songwriter's workshop in the mid-1980s, Mike co-wrote with a range of established writers and artists such as Sly Fox, Cameo, Shannon, Jermaine Stewart and Joyce Sims. This led to top-flight session work from the late 1980s as a studio musician and MIDI programer working with Cubase and Pro Tools. Throughout the 1990s and 2000s Mike developed a successful technology-driven writing career with a highly respected series of books for Focal Press (Routledge) on Pro Tools. Mike leaves us with excellent music productions and his Pro Tools books, which are stocked in most university and college libraries.
