HL Studios main engineer is Gareth Henderson.
Gareth Henderson - HL Studios main engineer He has been a professional singer since the tender age of 15 and has sung in many of the local bands that have graced the Southampton music scene over the years. He has worked for two of the areas most successful pro audio dealers whose clients have included Duran Duran, Tears for Fears, The Spice Girls Production team and local award winning producer/songwriter for both Craig David and the Artful Dodger, Mark Hill. Gareth currently still does some freelance technical support for Mark Hill Productions' recording studio.

He left Pro Audio to open the Southampton branch of The Southern School Of Popular Singing in 1998. Singing clients have included a number of TV personalities looking to improve their voices and most notably of late, the 2005 X Factor finalists 4Tune who have been pupils of his since 1998. They were described by the X Factor vocal coaches as the finest harmony act they had ever heard. Gareth now co-runs the unique 40 voice Pop Choir (like Gospel, but with just pop songs) En Masse and is responsible for the Southampton branch of it's junior version The E Minor Pop Academy, which teaches 8-16 year olds Pop vocals, harmony and choreography on a weekly basis. He runs the mixing desk at all of the E Minor and En Masse live shows, drawing on 20+ years experience in live sound.

His composition work has included clients like Time Warner Video, major merchant banks and has landed him a place on Meridian TV news. He's also quite a nice bloke, as long as you don't mention the baldness.

All this experience, combined with the extensive facilities on offer, makes HL Studios the number one choice of recording studios in Southampton to record a CD.
