David is a stunning engineer/mixer, professional and extremely easy to work with. Ideas and suggestions he brings to the table are always well thought out and add to the track. All in all, top bloke, can't keep up with the northerners on the booze, but excelent at what he does.
Your New Antique
The entire studio atmosphere is conducive to the utmost creativity, from the picturesque surroundings, to the stacks of phenomenal equipment. This goes hand in hand with David's ability to run the studio, and get the very best from each song. I've never met anyone with such an innate understanding of everything recording encompasses, from the technological aspects of ProTools to the creative elements of writing and structuring a new piece. He has certainly helped us craft our best work, and I wouldn't ever want to record in a different environment.
The Summer War
This is the second record we have made with David Leighton at River Run Studios as we were so impressed with the process and the end result the first time. Dave is very helpful and genuinely enthusiastic about all styles of music from the first stages of the drum tracks right down to the final mix. He is always on hand to lend his honest opinions and his own creative ideas that we would probably never have thought of. With an excellent attention to detail and the patience of a saint Dave made sure we got the sound we were after. We will definitely be back for record number three.
Old School Reasons
Working with Dave was a great experience in every way you would want it to be. We spent months developing our songs to perfection before we started recording and in the three days we spent in the studio with him our songs developed even more due to his incredible ear and song writing ideas. He is a talented professional, and a great guy to work with. We had a lot of laughs, a hell of a lot of fun, but most importantly three amazing sounding tracks were recorded. We have a lot of love for this guy and can’t wait to work with him again!
