"The team behind the production of Sides show a great deal of ambition. Producer, Joe Davison, has successfully arranged and produced an album that sounds both contemporary and theatrical, expertly colouring the rock backing with strings. The vocals sound bright, and showcase all the performances in a first-rate recording while the accompaniment never detracts." - Live Theatre UK

"The biggest treat lies in the beautiful arrangement of the title song from The Phantom Of The Opera, the show in which Naaman currently plays Raoul. Accompanied by Celinde Schoenmaker (his current Christine) the number is given a flamenco interpretation – replacing Lloyd Webber's gothic organ riffs with guitar and, sensationally, trumpet... As a re-worked interpretation of an iconic song, I’d venture to suggest it is unsurpassed. More of this please." - Jonathan Baz

"Excellent, beautifully harmonised, original arrangements... this album is expertly produced by Auburn Jam Music" - Musical Theatre Review

Client Testimonial: "Working with Auburn Jam is a perfect blend of professionalism, efficiency, creativity and fun. The experience of collaborating with them on my second album has surpassed all of my expectations. Joe’s talent as a producer and arranger is simply extraordinary, whilst Nikki runs the tightest of ships administratively, coordinating schedules, sales reports, diaries, musicians, photographers, promotion, radio producers and much more besides. Time in the well-equipped studio, which Joe operates with intelligence and ease, guarantees quality material, as well as a lot of laughs, originality, collaboration, encouragement and (crucially) really good coffee."
