James North is an award winning producer, engineer, composer and musician based in Brisbane Australia.


He works with clients from all over the world from the JNP studio and composes music, writes songs and plays drums, bass, guitar and piano/keys in all genres.  


James also composes and produces music and songs for TV shows and films on major networks including the BBC, Nickelodeon, HBO, NBC networks in the US, UK, Europe and Canada and has works published with Sony/BMG, Warner and several other libraries.


Most JNP clients have ended up with regular airplay on national and international radio networks.


The JNP studio was established in 2003 and houses a lot of gear handmade by James.  It’s a balance of high end instruments, microphones and vintage recording equipment with digital technology for speed and quality.


James is passionate about helping to get the best result for an artist and their songs, and enjoys working with both novice and experienced performers equally.


We’ve narrowed our network down to these people.

They provide the best results for our clients.

Lix North


Artist, illustrator, designer. Queen of music industry graphics. Over 15 years experience creating killer album artwork and promotional graphics for labels, and independents.


We recommend Lix’s high-end work to all clients to ensure that there are no weak links in the chain when it comes to release your music.  Check out more of her work at Lix Creative.

The best drummer in town. Yamaha-endorsed Joe has worked with all the big names (Ben Folds, John Farnham, Tommy Emmanuel, Jimmy Barnes, James Morrison and many more) and will make a huge difference to any project requiring drums.


We recommend Joe to solo artists or duos requiring precision or groove.  He has mega chops to burn.

Steve Pope


Steve has been our main drummer for over a decade. He now lives in Melbourne, but flies up for clients when needed. Has played with some big cats (Kate Miller-Heidke, Darren Hayes, Angus and Julia Stone and more).


We recommend Steve to any solo artists or duos requiring stellar pop sensibility or rock power.  He’s an extremely experienced session player.

Danny is our go-to brass man. He works with us from his own studio in Los Angeles and has some amazing credits to his name (Snoop Dogg, Regina Spektor, Bernard Fanning, Brooke Fraser and many more).


Any artist requiring horns on their project will find Danny’s work to be mind-blowingly good.  He composes parts and performs them like the seasoned pro he is.

Our favourite guys from the UK to work with.  These guys are very conscious of dynamics and deliver consistently good results for any modern music.


We recommend them to clients wanting modern sounds.

Eric Conn is an experienced master of classic sounds. He has mastered records by all the great Nashville artists.  He’s got a really great set of ears and is a wise man!


We recommend Eric to clients who are seeking vintage/classic sounding masters.

Stu Barry

Upright Bass

Stu is our go-to guy for upright bass. Great for country/folk/blues/jazz projects. He’s well versed in his music knowledge and has a great pop sensibility. He’s a great guy too!

Angel Strings

Live Strings

Kathryn and the team at Angel Strings are our solution for anything old and fretless. These guys are the real deal and have a fantastic ability to play with classical precision, but are able to improvise for modern times – a rare commodity!


We’ve negotiated great rates and a great working environment with these artists.  


We searched the world to find them!
