Meet the Staff

LOUIS DUNHAM

Hi there. My name is Louis Dunham and I’m an engineer and producer at XYZ Studio.

I have a number of years experience mixing rock and metal music, among other styles; with a penchant for clear, punchy mixes – I love to work on anything hard ‘n’ heavy!

With 7+ years as frontman and songwriter in my own band Raze (as well as over 15 years experience as a classically trained multi-instrumentalist), I have the skills and understanding to help produce your record – ensuring that your unique musical blueprint carries across to your listeners.

If you’ve got new music that needs recording, mixing, mastering, or producing, get in touch at louis@xyzmusicacademy.com – I’d love to work with you.

MAX GEDNY

Max is our resident Video Editor and Videographer at XYZ Studio. He first started studying drums at the age of 12, and was exposed to a large range of music on his way to achieving his Grade 8 Qualification.

As well as having a love for music, Max developed a hunger for film – a desire that was reflected through his study of Media at BTEC Level. Throughout his school years, Max worked in several productions providing live sound and recording. He was involved in the filming of performances followed by the creation of music videos, as well as developing animations through techniques such as stop motion, gaining experience as a well-rounded studio assistant and editing specialist.

Max’s creative and innovative side is evident in his work – videos flow smoothly and seamlessly from scene to scene, and effects are carefully placed to reflect the theme/genre of the video in hand.

Luc Pomfret

I am a university graduate that specialises in Writing, Recording, Mixing, Engineering, Producing and Teaching.


Performing/featuring in 10+ original bands/acts have allowed me to hone my instruments in a wide variety of different genres such as Pop, Rock, Metal, Jazz, Country, Folk and R&B. 

My experience has allowed for me to earn my Electric Guitar Grade 8 qualification certificate at the age of 15 along with being awarded Best Drummer at the Bucks Battle Of The Bands Competition, 2018. I have performed alongside names such as Kaiser Chiefs, Feeder, Tony Hadley, Republica and Lionize (US). 

Over the past 6 years, I have made a huge interest in recording and delving into the world of editing, mixing and producing. This has positively helped with not only my own musical process but with others who are in need of a recording that is radio-ready. “Sounded so good, that started so small then just exploded, big big fan of that” – BBC Home Counties Radio.

CONOR KEARNEY

Conor is our Junior Studio Engineer. He started playing the guitar at age 11, studying a diverse range of music styles and techniques on his way to achieving his Grade 8 qualification.

Beyond instrumental lessons he added to his knowledge, studying Physics, Maths and Music at A-Level. This gave him the ability to delve deeper into the theory side of music and music production, feeding his keen interest in the music industry. He also built his own electric guitar from scratch using the skills he had learnt.

He received the Robin Harrison Music Award for Excellence in Music A-Level – highlighting his passion, knowledge and enthusiasm for music.

He has played in his band, Haze, for 3 years. Having gigged regularly in some world-famous venues, he has gained invaluable skills through being subjected to live performance situations. He is competent with leading programs such as Logic and Pro Tools, and can comfortably operate mixing desks to suit the needs of any recording musician.
