Ocean Alley, Produced by Callum Howell

Ocean Alley’s new album ‘Lonely Diamond’ is out now – produced, recorded and mixed by Callum Howell

Mixing took place in Studio One

For enquiries about working with Callum, contact Anthony.garvin@forbesstreetstudios.com

Here’s what Dan Nascimento, Ocean Alley’s Manager, had to say about Cal:

“Ocean Alley have been working with Cal for over 5 years now. He’s steered the ship in terms of engineering and production of all Ocean Alley Recorded Music since the ‘In Purple’ EP in 2015, and became our FOH and PM on the road in 2016. 

Callum’s loyalty, attention to detail and overall dedication to his work is what makes him an integral part of the Ocean Alley family. Working together for so long has created a natural affinity and rhythm whenever the band are in the studio, which continually strengthens the quality of product that Callum produces. 

Through the Ocean Alley working relationship alone, we’ve worked in an array of circumstances when it comes to recorded music. Lost Tropics was recorded and mixed in 2 weeks, with Cal listening to demos on the flight over from the UK. Chiaroscuro had portions of the album written in the studio whilst recording. Finally, Lonely Diamond was written, demoed and refined over 18 months amidst a hefty touring schedule. 

Through all of this, Callum is continually able to adapt to the situation at hand and that’s a sign of his high level of professionalism. 

It’s a pleasure to work with Callum and we endorse everything about his quality of work as a producer and engineer.”
