With more than 20 years of music recording under his belt, Niall John Acott has become one of a small number of highly regarded “all rounders” that can turn their hand to recording practically any musical style.
Starting as a tea boy at one of the top London Studios, Niall moved on to engineering within a few years, taking the helm on film and television sessions as well as various record company jobs and jingles. He learned from some of the most well respected and talented engineers in the business. Much valued by his regular clients, he was often asked to freelance for them, including involvement in projects as far afield as Uganda – recording local musicians for a television show and Hollywood – working on the 2007 Academy Awards ceremony. With an enviable CV to call on, Niall chose to move into the freelance world on a more permanent basis in 2011 and is loving every minute of it.
