Biography

GRANT STRANG is an engineer, producer, programmer and obsessive gear junkie.

Originally influenced by the emerging swath of '80's synth bands like Gary Numan, Human League and Depeche Mode, his first purchase was a Korg MS10 and life would never be the same again. As a teenager he cut his teeth playing keyboards and programming in various bands in his native Edinburgh.

Finding that he was more interested in the studio side of things than playing live he built a small home studio and began recording and producing bands. He continued this route after making the move to London in the mid 1990's and expanded his set up to include an impressive collection of vintage synthesisers and high quality studio gear. Realising that a spare bedroom for was not the place to keep all of this he set up his own studio about 7 years ago and 2 years ago moved into his current location in South East London.

Grant has worked with a variety of artists varying wildly in style from acoustic singer songwriters to electronic dance music from his Silver Shark Studios which is home to an ever expanding collection of vintage outboard gear and the recent addition of a TL Audio 32 channel desk allows clients to mix in or out of the box depending on their requirements. The studio also houses his collections of synths including a Mini Moog Voyager, Arturia Minibrute, Dave Smith Mopho Keys, Roland Juno 106 and Access Virus amongst others.

Grant also works with Pascal Glanville as SILVER SHARK MUSIC.

PASCAL GLANVILLE is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer and engineer.

He was drawn to music from a very early age, learning the piano from the age of 13 and soon after moved onto guitar after listening to the playing of Johnny Marr and the Smiths.

Pascal has toured and recorded extensively around the world with numerous artists for over 25 years and popped up a few times on TV.

As well as playing the guitar, bass, ukulele and keyboards, he discovered the Chapman Stick, a 12-string Touchboard instrument invented in the early 1970's by Californian Emmett Chapman where he performs concerts around the world and teaches.

Pascal loves making beautiful noises and his current sonic obsession is the Fractal Axe 2. A ludicrously addictive Amp/Cab modeller FX processor for all things guitar and Stick based.If you need the perfect guitar part, some funky bass or some ethereal backwards noises from the Stick then he's the man for the job. Thinking outside the box is the name of the game and he can help with all your instrumental needs.

SILVER SHARK MUSIC love all things chocolate, their favourite colour is red and they love a great tune.
