Mike Thorne

Mike owns and operates Rimshot Studios and has been working as a recording engineer and producer since 2004.

In 2008 he started providing a mastering service to clients who were looking for something a bit different. This has developed into a business in it’s own right, Rimshot Mastering.

Mike’s philosophy is that in the days of iPods, MP3s and the reduced dynamic range of current records, audio quality is more important than ever - MP3s throw away a lot of data, so start with the best you can. This ethic applies to creative decisions and extends to the choice of equipment used at Rimshot.

Mike’s discography includes work with the following:

In addition to his producing and engineering work, Mike is also a professional musician, playing drums for the cream of the European blues scene, including two years touring with Paul Lamb and the King Snakes, 10 years with Jerimiah Marques and the Blue Aces, West Weston’s Bluesonics, the Big Town Playboys and many more.

Mike’s latest project for 2012 is a new recording and mastering studio. Purpose-built and featuring a 700 square foot green oak live room and 400 square foot control room, the studio is nearing completion - the opening party is booked for March 2012. See you there!
