I do music and performance and stuff

Hello. I am Steve Pretty. This is my website, on which I attempt to explain my confusing 'career' to you. I do mostly performance,  music composition, arranging and production, and sometimes photography and writing.

If you're confused, think how I feel.

Carnatic Connections album gets five stars from the Evening Standard

The Bollywood Brass Band album Carnatic Connection which I mixed and produced in summer 2016 got an outstanding five star review from Songlines magazine editor and all-round world music legend Simon Broughton, in his review for the London Evening Standard. It also got a great review from other world music legend Robin Deneslow in his review for the Guardian.

This is the first album I've ever fully mixed (I've produced the last two HCB records, but not mixed them), so I'm over the moon that it has been so well received.

With its combination of south Indian violin, percussion and brass, it's pretty niche, but no worse for that, and it was a pleasure working with virtuoso violinist Jyotsna Srikanth on this project, as well as the Bollywood Brass Band of course.
