Hi there, my name is Dylan Barber and I run Fine City Studio. I'm a sound engineer and producer with a passion for music and the audio industry: I also share that passion by tutoring college and degree students at Norwich Access Creative College. I'm a musician too: a drummer first and foremost, but also a guitarist; I write and perform music in the band (the) Red Dear.

My qualifications and achievements as a sound engineer include:
- Bachelor of Science degree in Audio and Music Technology - Nottingham Trent University 
- Winner of the Total Production International Magazine Breakthrough Technical Talent Award
- Audinate Dante Audio Networking Levels 1 & 2
- RSL Rockschool Extended Diploma in Music Technology
- Trainaid Level 3 FE Teaching Qualification

Clients, Venues & Events:
As a sound engineer, I've had the pleasure of working with some fantastic artists: Roger Eno (Tiny Desk Concert & Deutsche Gramaphon Recordings), Swim School, Szun Waves, Ash Soan, Joe Talbot, Thea Gilmore and Courtney Marie Andrews to name drop a few! I work with local BBC radio, as well as the lovely people at Wordplay Magazine, recording, mixing and mastering sound for their sessions. I'm honoured to have mixed shows and made recordings in a range of venues around Norwich and further afield including Norwich Arts Centre, St Andrew's Hall, Epic Studios, Open, Jazz Cafè Camden, Paper Dress Vintage and Lighthouse Studio London. I've also worked at various UK festivals including Latitude, Community, and Wireless with Climate Live.
