Phil Saatchi - musician, singer/songwriter,
music producer, workshop facilitator.
Phil runs a West Sussex music studio, "Songs Need Sounds," supporting singer/songwriters in creating a contemporary sound for their songs.
He also works with singers who cannot play an instrument, but may have just the start of a song idea - either a melody or a lyric. He can help play, arrange and develop these into full productions.
Many of his clients who have never been in a studio before, walk away with a full completed track at the end of one day.
He is a former journalist, Goldsmith's University music workshop skills graduate, and sometimes runs vocal, percussion, guitar, computer music tech and children’s songwriting workshops at after school music clubs in Brighton.
Phil is a winner of the 'John Lennon Song Writing Competition' and was signed solo to A@M Records.
He has performed live at concerts throughout England and Europe.
