Ipswich born, James Ivey is a successful producer, pro audio professional and multi-instrumentalist. After graduating from Music Technology at Guildhall University, Ivey went on to work for The Solutions Company (TSC), selling and installing studio equipment. His work with TSC included designing and installing systems for some of the music industry’s biggest names, such as Pete Townshend of The Who, Ian Broudie of The Lightning Seeds and Mike “Spike” Stent, just to name a few.
Ivey left TSC, moving into a pop video production position with FAB Audio where he worked on promos for the likes of U2, Pulp and Oasis. This music tech pro has toured worldwide as a drummer and a musical director, working on cruise ships and at UK holiday resorts.
