About Blair Booth

Back in the 90’s I was one of the first women producers to use Sound Tools. I even had an early Mac Quadra 700 and gravitated to using Logic Pro for programming. Over the many years to date I have now a full studio with Mac Pro (late 2013) 12-Core Intel Xeon E5 running 64GB and too many plugins to mention.

I found that in order to survive I had to expand my horizons and learn as many new genres as possible, but with an integrity to sell and stay true to the sound. As a child my father had a doctorate and emiritus in music and I was taught piano at the age of 5. In my early youth I was heavily influenced by baroque music which I love to this day. However, when performing recitals my preference was Chopin and Grieg. In my teens I found my voice as a singer wanting to be a cross between Freddie Mercury and Aretha Franklin. I loved Rock music but really enjoyed Funkadelic. My great inspirations were Billy Preston, Nillson, Carole King, Carly Simon and Queen! I moved from the US to London when I was 19. I started out singing on commercials, then joined a few bands and then landed a few record deals with MCA Records, Chrysalis Records and Sony Music. Had a few hit singles did Top of The Pops, The Word and played at Glastonbury Festival. Now I’m a geek spending my time with technology and the wizardry of sound design, making Complextro and Glitch Hop. Oh and I still orchestrate and was lucky enough to have the Royal Philharmonic perform two works of mine for Audionetwork.
