Adam Bairstow

Adam spent his early years toying with analogue desks and tape machines with a constant obsession for capturing the depth and the feel of old school recording in their most natural form. Adam studied composition at Leeds College Of Music and followed his recording passion amassing and living in a home studio for a number of years during his time at university. Upon graduating Adam turned his head towards live sound and had a constant fascination for the capture of the energy that live music conveys, and has since played his hand at engineering shows at venues around Leeds such as The Brudenell Social Club, Oporto, Royal Park…

Having been a member of the noise trio Brooders for a number of years he found himself working and learning  alongside producers including the likes of Lee Smith (Easy Life, Pulled Apart By Horses, The Cribs), Steffan Pringle (Estrons, The Himilayas), Tom Orrell (Nave/Eiger Studios), Guy Elderfield (The Libertines, QOTSA) and many more.

To date Adam has worked with a number of high profile and upcoming bands from the UK scene such as Crows, Low Hummer, Magick Mountain, Dense, Bull, Bloodhound and has had a number of his works played nationally on BBC Radio 6 Music, Amazing Radio and many more.

He is one half of the duo behind the Taboo Sessions ran from the studio and curator for the Leeds Festival based at Belgrave Music Hall ‘RIFFFEST’, and a member of the Leeds based noise rock trio Brooders.
