Mike Cave

Musician turned mixer/producer Mike Cave got his start playing guitar, keyboards & drums in a variety of bands on the Liverpool circuit from the age of 13, and by 15 he was engineering sessions for his own bands and others in the area.

Mike went on to study Music Theory at the London College of Music, but his real education was finding his band The Sunlites in a major record deal with Mercury, allowing him to spend two years in the studio with the big guns –Jeremy Wheatley, Mike Neilsen, Kevin Bacon and Jonathan Quarmby.

A six year in-house engineer stint at Liverpoolʼs legendary Parr Street Studiosfollowed, working alongside heavyweights such as Ken Nelson (Coldplay, Badly Drawn Boy, Gomez), Jeremy Wheatley (Space, Sugababes, Mel C), and Brendan Lynch (Paul Weller, Ocean Colour Scene, Cast).

Mike then went freelance and opened his own world class studios The Loft in a large converted Manhattan-style loft in the centre of Liverpool. He’s built a strong reputation as a mixer/producer, with artists as diverse as Professor Green, The Coral, Elvis Costello, Noisettes, Tinchy Stryder, James Vincent McMorrow, John Martyn, Yuksek, Bob Dylan, Rufus Wainwright, The Charlatans, The Zutons, and Echo & The Bunnymen making use of his production, mixing & mastering expertise and earning him a string of top ten albums & singles and numerous multi-platinum, gold & silver sales awards.

Mike’s talent and experience working on both sides of the desk give him a unique understanding of how to deliver quality records on time and on budget with a magic touch that brings artists’ ideas to life.
