Tim ‘SPAG’ Speight

Spag is a well-established, highly successful freelance engineer and mixer from Yorkshire with over 15 years experience in the music industry.  He specialises in recording, engineering & mixing various genres of pop music.  Spag graduated from the highly acclaimed Gateway School of Sound Recording at Kingston University in 1993.  He then gained employment at P.W.L where he was introduced to the world of pop music by guru Pete Waterman, and began engineering in-house projects.  Whilst working at P.W.L Spag engineered, recorded and mixed much of the massively popular Steps albums x 3.

In 1996 Spag became a freelance engineer/mixer and producer and since then has repeatedly worked with the very accomplished production and writing team – Topham & Twigg (Steps, Westlife, Allstars, Kim Marsh, POP!).  More recently Spag teamed up with the hugely successful record producers Morrison & Sidoli (M&S) (M People, Blockster, Ultra Nate),  Jewels & Stone (Gareth Gates, S Club 8, Dannii Minogue, Rachel Stevens, David Essex) & Craig Hardy (Lemar, McFLY, V, Blue).  Spag has worked on projects for London Records, Island Records, Universal, Polydor Records and Sony/BMG.

In 1999 Spag recorded, engineered, mixed and co-produced a monster debut album for French rock/folk band Matmatah, which sold an astonishing 900,000 copies. In 2001 Spag teamed up with the Jiant production and writing team (Pete Kirtley & Tim Hawes) to record, engineer and mix the fastest selling debut single of all time“Pure & Simple” by Hear’say.

In 2003 he started work for Island records with a new act called McFly. Since then, the band have become one of the UK’s most successful bands.

Spag recorded, engineered and mixed over 50% of the debut album “Room on the 3rd Floor”.

He continues to record and/or mix records for new and established bands including Glassyouth (Channel 4’s T4 Unsigned & Glastonbury 2007), Hitomi and Superfreak.

Over the last 7 years Spag has begun to write and produce his own tracks, some of which have been signed by record companies in America and Europe including TOMMY BOY, USA and TRANSK/BEATS INCLUDED, Holland. In this time Spag has established three production teams known as Sinister, SNB and Nip ‘n’ Spag. Sinister have already signed tracks to Sony BMG/ARISTA UK, whilst Nip ‘n’ Spag completed remixes of Eartha Kitt, Baccarra and Young Fire in 2009 for Boys Town Productions.

Spag skilfully mixes on all professional consoles including Neve, SSL, Yamaha and Mackie desks. Spag is a Digidesign qualified Pro-Tools Instructor and uses this platform in all aspects of his work for recording, production, mixing and lecturing.

He is also proficient in using all versions of Logic Pro for programming, production and mixing.

Spag currently provides workshops & lectures in recording, production and mixing techniques at Barnsley College on BTEC and Level Music Technology courses and is a Mentor to Masters students at the Leeds College of Music. Alongside these professional contracts he also continues to mix various genres of pop music both at his home studio and in London for various record companies.

He was also very honoured to be the keynote speaker during the annual Leeds International Music and Technology Conference in November 2005.

He has recently completed a two-year Certificate in Education course that allows himself to continue to be able to work in various education establishments in accordance with government legislation.
