Ian Melvin

I am an amateur singer-songwriter from Fleetwood in the United Kingdom, recording my songs in a spare bedroom studio. I have been doing this as a hobby for the last two years or so. I am not a performing musician so online sites such as this are the only outlet for my music. I really appreciate any and all feedback and will try to respond to each and every comment...

Collaborating has been a revelation online, and I want to do more and as much as I can, so if you hear anything of mine you like and/or have any ideas about production etc just drop me a line... anytime.

Technical: I record on a Mac mini running OSX 10.9.1 using Logic Pro X. Input is by Focusrite Saffire Pro 14. Most vocals are recorded with a Rode NT2A, guitars with SE R1 Ribbon Mic or AKG1000S...sometimes DI through a Fishman Platinum.

Guitars: Martin 000-15M with Fishman Rare Earth Blend Martin Custom Light SPs, Cordoba Jet Fusion 12 nylon string D'Addario "Black" strings, Walden B1E Baritone.

My collaborative name is Eight Zeros and can be found on Facebook here: facebook.com/eight8zeros
