Mark Gray King Sound Studio

Mark Gray - Founder // Producer // Musician

Lead and visionary Mark founded King Sound Studio in early 2016. Building the studio up, literally baffle-by-baffle/diffuser-by-diffuser from its roots, Mark has been the heart and hands behind the studio’s inception and growth. Multi-instrumentalist and singer, Mark takes a hands-on role within the team, producing, accompanying and coaching. Mark’s affability and passion for music means that client experience is his highest priority. When he’s not busy welcoming new visitors to the studio, you’ll find Mark deep in producing tracks, working one-to-one with solo artists, providing vocal coaching and lending his expertise and talent as a session musician.


Chris 'Q' Brookbanks - Engineer // Producer // Musician

Highly logical, talented trouble-shooter and problem solver, Chris’ ear for music and his technical expertise help guarantee your day at the studio runs as smoothly as a legato string symphony.

Setting up the mics, sound-checking, engineering, mixing and producing, Chris’ years of experience working in live sound and radio (and his fascination with mechanics) make him the go-to-guy when you need something working out in the studio. His coaxing approach makes him easy to work with, while his skillset and knowledge ensure your recording session will be a success.

“I’m the guy under the desk.”
