“Brian's vast experience as an artist/ songwriter and producer has laid a strong foundation whereby 7 of the 8 demo tracks on my forthcoming album have either won awards or have been shortlisted in the ASA, TSA, Songsalive, Maldon and the Basin song comp. Brian gets me!”
— Cathy Dobson - songwriter/recording artist
The Bakery is a production studio dedicated to serving the artist and the song.

A note about the Corona Virus - Just want to let folks know that I take virus transmission very seriously. I want to assure my clients that firstly I clean with a plant based disinfectant, all surfaces, doorhandles, mics, pop shields etc.... and secondly that there are not hordes of people coming through the studio. I generally work one to one with clients so the likelihood of disease transmission is very low, more on the nil side I would say, given the clean air flowing through here in the Dandenong Ranges. If you have any concerns, please give me a call. Now let's make some music!
