Honest Sound Studio is a collaboration between Iain MacLeod and Bertie Fritsch - both have a love of Music production and are also musicians. 

Iain is a Guitarist and handles more of the songwriting and recording parts of the business. Bertie is a Drummer and does the mixing and mastering side of things.

The studio started as a mobile recording studio in late 2017 when Iain decided to go part time with his teaching job and get more involved in Music making. Very quickly his band mate Bertie was on board - they pooled their equipment and knowledge together and have been producing ever since.


In summer 2019 the studio moved to a permanent home in Iain's attic in Musselburgh. This cosy and nurturing environment is proving to be popular with all kinds of songwriters who need a creative space to work in.

Bertie is a trained acoustician and teaches popular Music and recording at Glasgow College. He has a love of avante garde and experimental Music as well as some good old fashioned rock and roll.

Iain studied World Music at SOAS university and has played in bands and worked with many different songwriters over the years. He also writes and performs his own Music.
