"David Holman is a top flight producer, engineer and mixer with a string of gold and platinum records to his credit. I worked with him on the No Doubt "Tragic Kingdom" record where his expertise transformed the tracked recordings into a 20 million selling album. His universal attention to detail without compromising the emotional content the artist is trying to convey can only come from a seasoned professional.
He owns his own state of the art studio which allows him continuity throughout his work along with a relaxed atmosphere that doesn't always exist in most modern studios. This allows the client to focus on the work at hand without distraction or pressure. A joy to work with."
