David Pye

Coming from a prolific and varied background as an engineer at The Mill Studio (Norfolk), and Leeders Farm, David’s main aim as a Producer is to remove any technical obstacles between an artist and their creativity.

As an engineer David has worked with Richard Formby (Wild Beasts, Egyptian Hiphop, iLikeTrains), Rob Ellis (2:54, Fredrika Stahl), and Rollo Armstrong (UTRB, Dido, Faithless) among many, many others.

As a producer he has made and mixed records with Trudy and the Romance, Blaenavon, Brolin, Jarbird and Kyla La Grange.

David’s production rests on putting the opinions and wishes of the artist at the forefront, and shining the brightest and truest light on those as a starting point. Whether it’s bleak, atmospheric minimal electronica, or rawkus, visceral punk-rock, he believes the artist already understands their own vision clearer than anyone else can.
