Phil Manning

Maturity has its benefits.


Creating, performing and recording music since the mid seventies, Phil brings the experience of many dozens of recording projects, orginal compositions and live performances to Foundry 85 Classic Recording Studio.


As a musician Phil is primarily a piano player. In the nineties however, he developed an unhealthy obsession for Hammond organs and Leslies speakers as well as Rhodes and Wurlitzer electric pianos. His collection now contains more of the aforementioned than anyone should own. These instruments are available for our clients to use on their session without extra charges.


Over the years of running recording studios, (Phil formerly established and operated L.B.Music and Siesta Produce Audio Productions) Phil preferred to do as much of his own tech maintenance, repair and modifications as possible. He is currently the sole labourer stitching together all of the tech elements of Foundry 85 Classic Recording Studio. Phil has also taken to modifying and upgrading his studio microphones, including designing and building his own ribbon microphone.


For the time being, Phil will be acting as studio manager and cheif engineer at Foundry 85 Classic Recording Studio. Phil is also available for keyboard session work, song-building and lyric-writing assistance/collaboration and he can also be engaged as producer.
