Steve Rispin has been  involved professionally in the music business since 1981, when he started running PA Systems  for students union events. On graduation, Steve worked at Village Way Recording  in Harrow and then Tin Pan Alley Studio in Denmark St, Soho.

Leaving TPA in 1986, Steve  went freelance, working on several progressive and metal projects, including  Sabbat albums for Noise Records. This led to a  year living in Berlin at Skytrak Studio.

Steve returned to the UK in late 1989, and became more involved with live  productions, working with Kingmaker for Chrysalis, Pendragon for Toff Records  and Threshold for Inside Out amongst many others. An offer to  help develop The Bottom Line club in London led to a few years working with  internationally renowned Blues artists, but the shareholders eventually sold  the business on.

Sensible Music  offered an opportunity to work with Clair Brothers systems, with artists including  Tina Turner, Elton John, Sly and Robbie, Mick Taylor, Snowy White…

Returning to  recording in 2002, Steve took an opportunity to build a studio in the country  – Liscombe Park Studio, on the border of Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire.  Studio clients include Asia, Uriah Heep, Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash and Roger Chapman, as well as many up-and-coming bands such as Virgil and the Accelerators, Mitch Laddie, and Silverbox and Nathan James

Maintaining  the Live side, current clients include: The Carl Palmer Band, Greg Lake, Family (with Roger Chapman), Lifesigns, Chris Norman, Fish, Asia, Mostly Autumn, and Harley-Davidson.
Steve worked FOH for 12 years, for the internationally-renowned guitarist Alvin Lee, until Lee’s recent tragic death at the age of 68.
