Cheeky Nights – Barrie Gledden & Peter Shand
Barrie Gledden is a musician & composer based in the north of England who, since 2001, has written & recorded exclusively for Audio Network.
He has contributed music to thousands of TV programs, films and trailers world wide, including the Oscar winning Her, Ophan Black, Anchorman, Kickass, Sugar Rush and Horizon as well as music for computer games, radio, corporate video & advertising. His work has been used by the BBC, C4, NBC, Warner Bros, Disney, Nintendo, Burger King, Vodaphone, Citroen and countless others.
Barrie composes and records all his music at his own recording studio – Studio b. The studio has an impressive collection of classic and modern equipment and instruments and provides a unique sonic fingerprint to all his music.
This site provides useful & (hopefully) interesting images and information about his approach to composing, recording & mixing, ‘behind the scenes’ photo blogs & videos of album sessions & more.
Barrie began playing guitar at 14 and is completely self-taught. The guitar became an instant obsession and even though he didn’t take music at school, he still found the time to practice for 9 hours per day!
In his teens he worked in theatre as a ‘pit guitarist’ and founded the band Brazil who were featured in a BBC Radio 1 live session from Maida Vale. He then taught popular music at Huddersfield Music College for three years whilst touring with the rock band Old Man Stone (Revolver) performing to festival crowds of 20,000 & pub ‘crowds’ of 2!
Always having had an interest in the recording & producing process Barrie found himself increasingly behind the desk recording & mixing for Kaiser Chiefs, Corinne Bailey Rae & the wonderful Timmy Mallett in the studio as well as in front of it – he also ended up working as a mix engineer in Nashville.
