We are extremely pleased to welcome music producer James Toler to the Sonicworld Productions team. James brings a wealth of experience to Sonicworld and has worked with some incredible artists over the years.
James Toler began working in recording studios in the early eighties aged seventeen. Initially he began in a central London jazz club, setting up and recording jazz and world acts such as the Bhundu Boys, Dudu Pukwana and Julian Bahula. The club also regularly featured and hosted DJs such as Norman Jay who became synonymous with Rare Groove and regular faces included Sade, Bjork and the Sugarcubes, Neneh Cherry, Nellie Hooper, Jamiroquai, the Brand New Heavies, the Young Disciples and countless other emerging local talent.
James continued recording and producing artists for the next ten years working in London and New York with artists such as: Aswad, Brian Eno, Harold Budd, Mark Almond, The The, Psychedelic Furs, Desree, the Brand New Heavies, Daniel Lanois, Definition of Sound, D–Influence and many others. In the mid ‘90s he began to concentrate on marketing some of the artists with whom he was involved, also working for organisations such as Amnesty International and Channel 4.
More recently James was the Creative Enterprise Manager at Dartington College of Art in Totnes.
