Producer, Engineer & Artist

Justin Richards has been a freelance music producer and sound engineer for over twenty years. Having learned traditional, tape-based engineering skills, he then also became a fast and efficient user of Pro Tools and Logic. This led to him being known for his attention to detail alongside a practical, organic approach to making music.

As well as engineering and production work, Justin’s¬†portfolio includes composing music for film/TV, solo output as the artist ‘Just.’ and collaborative releases with ‘Messrs Kelly I.A. & Richards J.V.M.’. Currently basing his freelance work in the northwest of England, Justin also lectures in Music Technology at Salford University.

Current Projects

With Justin as producer, The Elk have been amassing a large set of great songs over several years. The release of their first two singles has given the band airplay on national radio stations and over a million YouTube views. With such an impressive choice of tracks, they look set to make a big impact with the release of their debut album in the second half of 2018.

Justin has also been working with the heavy rock band Bigfoot since their formation in 2014. After securing a deal with the Italian label Frontiers, Justin continued with production duties on their debut album which was released in October 2017.
