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 chosen as one of the Top 10 albums of 2016 by Songlines Magazine

I'm really delighted that Carnatic Connections, the Bollywood Brass Band album I produced, mixed and performed on has been selected as one of the Top 10 albums of 2016 by legendary world music magazine Songlines.

I worked super hard on this record, and I'm really proud of the result, so it's great to see it getting such a lot of praise (also FIVE STARS from the Evening Standard, with more reviews on the way). Do check the record out.

Sessions

I've had fun doing some nice sessions of late, with studio sessions in section with chum Pete Wareham for the likes of Paul Epworth (in his incredible studio The Church featuring - geek alert - a 72 channel Neve desk which was used to record Dark Side of the Moon) and some nice sessions I've recorded myself at home through my increasingly tasty setup of a Coles ribbon mic and Neve channel strip. If you want me on your record, drop me a line and I can either come to your world famous studio or record in my own non-world famous studio.
