Tim Bran is a record producer, songwriter and mixer. Credits include London Grammar, Birdy, Halsey, La Roux, The Verve, Walking on Cars, Bloc Party.
Born in Guernsey in the Channel Islands, Tim owned a studio complex from the age of 17. Deep underground in the German communications bunker that was his studio, he honed his recording and mixing skills. He then furthered his professional music career by moving to London and producing, remixing, engineering and composing at Island Records’ Fallout Shelter Studios.
Within a couple of years he was playing keyboards and bass with Julian Cope’s band on a World Tour, having worked on Julian’s album ‘Peggy Suicide’. In 1993, he met up with Greg Roberts (ex-BAD/Screaming Target) and formed Dreadzone. They were signed to Creation Records, Virgin Records and Rufflife Records and had several hit singles and albums, including ‘Little Britain’ and ‘Second Light’.
In the mid-90’s, Tim co-founded a music technology company called Rocket Network. This became his ‘day-job’ up until the end of 2002, when the company was sold to Digidesign, creators of ProTools. The system is now known as Digidelivery, part of the ProTools software.
Tim then fully returned to his music production career and also has released a solo album under the project name Subsonar. He also works alongside legendary producer Youth on most of his projects, including The Orb, The Charlatans, Primal Scream and Paul McCartney.
In 2012, Kerr and fellow Big Life producer Tim Bran formed a production duo called MyRiot. They gained success producing for artists from Atlantic Records.
He spends most of his time these days in various London studios producing, mixing, programming and engineering.
