The HQ’s award winning engineer/ professional musician ‘Gregor “G-man” James’ has over 17 years production experience, producing albums that have sold over 300,000 units and has experience in recording all styles of music for which he had Gold, Platinum and Triple Platinum discs awarded. G-man also has a great deal of experience in programming computer music, fully composing and arranging backing tracks, as a musician Gregor can also ‘build’ tracks around solo performers by adding drums, bass, guitar, keys, percussion and backing vocals to productions (check out the ‘Virtual Band’ package HERE). Where appropriate Gregor is very much a ‘hands on’ producer, full of helpful points, career advice and the best ways to get your music ‘out there’ having a great deal of experience in this area.
Many of G-man’s productions at the HQ have been released by record companies and receive regular airplay (including Radio 1), Bags of Rock’s debut album ‘The Next Level’ (fully recorded and mixed at the HQ) won “Rock Recording of the Year” at 2012 Scottish New Music Awards. Despite his CV “G-man” welcomes acts at ALL levels and styles and approaches every project with the same enthusiasm and creativity – as a session musician himself, he has a great both deal of experience on both sides of the mixing desk and is well aware of how to get the best ‘takes’ from performers.

"The Jack Dames have used HQ several times now and have received nothing short of brilliant of results. Gregor works efficiently and effectively to get as much work done with the highest level of quality at the same time. We have always found Gregor to be helpful, honest, cool and quick (as you would expect from a top engineer) letting us know if something just doesn't sound right. He does this in such a way that your confidence isn't knocked and you know it's the best for what you are recording. In terms of mixing we have always been more than happy with the work produced. Every instrument or voice get's it's place in the mix as it should be. HQ is total value for money and we would recommend recording here for anyone that wants a great finished product with a real Rock and Rolla who knows what it takes to make a band sound great!"KevBassistThe Jack Dames
Wow! Just.. wow! Spent Tuesday and Wednesday at The HQ recording and laying down some new tunes for the band and... wow! G-man is indeed the (G-) man! What a brilliant professional - and rightly so, relaxed - service.

"Back in the studio today with the fabulous G-Man. Past sessions have been in the genres of rock, motown, pop, soul and disco and today getting into Swing with some Big Band. Gregor can handle any genre and all my previous sessions sound amazing. I'm sure today will be no different. With his knowledge of recording and mixing techniques for any type of singer or musician, attention to detail and friendly and relaxed manner, it's always a pleasure to work with him. Get the kettle on! I'm bringing soup!"Marj MassieProfessional SingerWedding Singer Scotland

"The sheer breadth of G-man's production knowledge makes the HQ an absolute bargain, i've spent a lot more on people who knew a lot less in the past. G's laid back attitude and attention to detail makes him stand out, makes a bloody cuppa too !"The Great DivideColin - Singer/ SongwriterThe Great Divide
We had a blast at the HQ getting our music down. A quality experience and quickly done too...not to mention your hospitality of copius coffee and biscuits G-Man, cheers!Marty Java - singer/ musical composerMarty Java
"Thanks once again to the fantastic Gregor for the first class professional engineering skills at today's recording session. Even with a not-quite-up-to-par voice today, he still made everything sound top notch!! And special mention too for helping my little friend I brought along - a very novice singer and someone who's never been inside a recording studio. You put Jaxx at ease and got a very credible vocal out of a very nervous and non-confident young lady. Cheers, Marj x"Marj MassieProfessional VocalistWedding Singer Scotland
