'You like that? I like that! That's Eliza Carthy and the Wayward band, and that's a pretty wayward way to do that type of music! That's 'Devil in the Woman' a big old aggressive band, sounds good!!'

Jim is well known for his unorthodox approach to production.
A great communicator, Jim is very focused and can bring out the best in a project or artist, developing and encouraging great performances. His skills as a composer mean that he is able to offer arrangement advice and help with musical structure.

He combines his musical experience and programming skills to integrate all the aspects of great songwriting and performance with technology and cutting edge arrangements.

'Recent years have seen a revival in back-to-basics recording techniques, but few engineers or producers have taken things as far as Jim Sutherland did with Edinburgh folk-pop band Aberfeldy!'
