2017 Record Of The Year: Adele - Hello
2017 Album Of The Year: Adele - 25
Growing up in a house surrounded by music Liam’s fascination with sound started in his teens when he picked up a guitar. Hundreds of hours trying to emulate his favourite bands’ guitar tones led him down a rabbit hole of recording techniques, mics, capturing sound, mixing, and engineering. A rabbit hole that arguably Liam is still totally, 100% immersed in – albeit a two-time Grammy and MPG award-winning rabbit hole.
With Liam’s passion for new and emerging technology and his knowledge of Metropolis’s analogue gear, this engineering experience has put Liam at the forefront of modern-day engineering.
During his time at Metropolis, Liam has worked with some of the most influential artists in Pop and Hip Hop, such as Adele, David Guetta, Drake, Future, Rihanna, AJ Tracey and Stormzy to name just a few and his work can be regularly heard on TV and radio.
Liam has a simple philosophy when either recording or mixing: Enhance the song but always keep the artist’s vision and direction for the song intact.
