Student Recordings with Siobhan’s Music Studio and the Phuket Academy of Performing Arts
Legend Music regularly works with the talented music students from the Phuket Academy of Performing Arts and Siobhan’s Music Studio. So many of these kids are super talented, and it is an amazing experience to watch them develop musically.
Producing Legends of Siam
Legends of Siam are a young Rock band out of Phuket. Working with them is effortless, and they are all talented way beyond their years! Legend Music tracked, mixed and mastered their debut album ‘This Means War’.
Legend Music was asked to write and produce a song for Laguna Phuket’s annual international marathon. The race’s catch phrase is ‘Run Paradise’ which we thought was a great song title.
Rob Cooke and I wrote and recorded the song. We were lucky enough to get stellar South African vocalist Deon du Toit (Toxic Shame) to do the lead vocals on the song.
Recording Pat Savage’s Wind & Fire album
Canadian Biker / Rocker Pat Savage recorded his latest Wind & Fire album at Legend Music. Pat wanted us to make the ‘best biker album ever made’, so we set about writing and recording it over a period of a year, while Pat got some much needed R&R in Phuket, Thailand.

Graham Andrews offered to do a music video for the track, and the song and music video were released together to raise funds for the causes.
