Black Cat Studios is a small private recording, music production and art studio in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire, UK, owned by music producer, writer and guitarist James Scott and his partner, artist, vocalist and pianist Katrin Brunier. Together they provide a range of services for musicians, broadcasters and game developers.
The studio, located in a quiet private residence in West Leicestershire, offers state-of-the-art recording, mixing and mastering facilities for bands and musicians, as well as a small studio space for visiting painters and artists. Between them, James and Katrin can offer bands recording, mixing, mastering, songwriting and production advice, album art, tuition, production design and a range of session musician services. Visiting musicians and artists can stay overnight with full guest accommodation. As the studio is located in a private residence, James and Katrin do not have to pay for studio hire and therefore can offer their services at a significantly lower rate than most commercial competitors whilst ensuring full professional quality.
As James and Katrin are both full-time professionals in their fields, they can work flexibly at times to suit you, and can often take on work at short notice, including emergency and "mix rescue" work with tight deadlines. James specialises in rock, metal and industrial music, and also has a range of production experience across genres from acoustic folk to hip-hop. Katrin is a classically-trained surrealist painter and illustrator whose preferred mediums include acrylic, ink, watercolour and digital art.
