The Studio.

Inspire Music offers all types of recording, writing, production and mixing for artists in a studio set in the heart of the Staffordshire countryside. We work with each artist to help them create and record music in their own unique style, sourcing session musicians and using creative techniques to bring out the best in every place. As we’ve worked with many artists over time we’ve seen some of the challenges they face creating a complete product from their music.

Our recording studio is equipped with the latest in digital recording technology to ensure an excellent sound quality at every stage during the recording, mixing and mastering process.

We record using an extremely high spec Apple Mac Pro with the latest audio software available. Plus we have a wide range of vintage outboard gear including Neve, Millennia, Urei, DBX, Focustrite and much more plus a wide range of microphones.

Recording work is usually charged by the hour and we offer discounts for full day bookings.

If you’re looking for a friendly local recording studio in Staffordshire, for whatever purpose, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Session Work

Session work.

I have over 20 years of guitar playing experience and offer session guitar work either at a studio of your choice or remotely from my own recording studio.

I offer guitar playing and recording for producers and songwriters who need something more on their project. I can work to a brief or am happy to use my creativity to create guitar parts that are just right for the track. I enjoy all genres of music and will happily take on any project big or small.

Please have a listen below to some examples and feel free to get in touch.

About Me.

I started playing guitar at age six and have never looked back, starting my first band at just eleven years old. A HND in music gave me both a theoretical and practical foundation to my musical career as well as an introduction to professional gigging roles. It was while at college I set up my first professional cover band, Boogie Knights and started to perform throughout the UK. This experience kickstarted my entrepreneurial spirit and since then I have led and managed a number of bands of different genres. My current band, ‘Live Wires’, is now one of the country’s best and most sought after party bands.

Early in my career I toured Worldwide with Demon as well as developing other bands of varying styles such as Emergency Call and Groove Merchants. As well as playing guitar I also play drums, bass and more recently bazouki and mandolin. This flexible approach has given me the opportunity to work regularly as a session musician for a number of artists including radio 2 sensation Nell Bryden, successful Welsh artist/singer Elin Fflur. I am also a full time member of the band Honey Ryder.

Alongside playing I run my own recording studio business where I records artists and bands from all genres as well as providing music technology advice and consultancy.

At Inspire Music we listen to artists like you so we can guide you through the different stages of the process of converting your music and you into an amazing end product.

Inspire Music was started by Matt Bishop who has spent his entire career in the music business, covering all aspects from writing to recording to production to performance in this rapidly changing industry. He found that there are many high quality artists producing amazing music but the routes to convert that music into professional recordings, to promote it and find an audience was a complex maze for many people. There was a clear need for a friendly, approachable recording studio where each artist could be helped to create and record music in their own unique style.

As many artists have worked with Inspire Music over time we have seen the challenges they face to create a complete product. As a result Inspire Music has grown organically to provide standard and bespoke packages for both music production and artist development. Whether you are ready to start recording your music, have recordings you want mixed and mastered, want to add depth and layers with input from session musicians or need help producing, promoting and marketing your music, Inspire Music will help you.
