Demos of recordings made at Soundmagic Studios

Song Production Examples

The following examples demonstrate how we can help you create professional-sounding songs or demos to either promote yourself or to sell. Our experienced team of engineers and producers will work with you to create songs that showcase your song writing skills and talents, giving you the opportunity to present your work in the best possible light.

The DEMO versions are all original with click tracks, guide vocals, guide instruments in most instances as presented to us, sometimes with a brief as to what was required, but mostly not!

The FINAL versions are the finished songs after reworking, recording of the parts either remotely or in the studio and produced, mixed and mastered by Steve Tsoi.

 

A Hundred Years is a song written by Bristol based singer/songwriter Ian Nonhebel whose brief to us was to create a piano ballad from his lyrics and ukulele accompaniment! The DEMO was sent to us as a phone recording with Ian playing and singing from which we created the FINAL version.

The final version features Brighton-based session vocalist Lindsay Jones and Southend pianist Dave Cooke.

Found Love is a song co-written by producer Steve Tsoi and the late Relay bassist/songwriter Bob Addis.  In the DEMO version the click track can clearly be heard.  The FINAL version replaces the bass guitar harmonics with piano.

 

The FINAL version was featured on the album Mountain Of Skulls, the 2022 debut album by Project Taiga.

Love, Love, Love is a song written by Tiptree singer/songwriter Henry Lawrence who was just 14 years old at the time.

Henry sent us a rough phone recording of the song with his dad on piano/strings and Henry on vocals.

Wish I Was A Bird is a song written by Kings Lynn songwriter Alan Frost.

Unusually Alan writes his songs direct onto lead sheets.  We take the lead sheets,  musically interpret them and record a basic piano accompaniment with piano top line.

The next step was to add instrumentation and send a copy to Alan for approval.

Once approval was given we proceeded to record the full song.

The final version features Brighton-based session vocalist Lindsay Jones and Southend pianist Dave Cooke.
