The specialists in the art of Noise

Senior Producer

Tom Henthorn

Tom is a record producer, recording Engineer and mix engineer from Sheffield. With a music teacher as a father, and after classically training on violin and piano, Tom rebelled in his teen years, playing guitar and bass in alternative bands.

Now, his focus is on making productions with subtlety and power in equal measure and in any style. Recordings that are everything they should be..., tight, attention-grabbing, dynamic.


"A good recording becomes a great production when people can easily identify it, and identify with it. So just as a well-produced album hangs together as a single work, so everything a band is (songs, clothes, lyrics, ethics, lighting, sound, artwork, performance, etc.) should be indisputably THAT BAND...

...this is what I capture."

Trainee Producer

Molly "Gannett" Clark

Molly started work at Make Noise Studios in Summer 2022, after honing her skills by self-producing her own music during her lockdown-filled Music Degree. She’s happy producing in any genre, but particularly enjoys any music that’s a little bit whacky, or with lots of vocal harmonies.


“I want anyone to feel comfortable coming into the studio with me as producer. Whether you’ve got an entire album of songs ready to record note for note, or you want someone to flesh out song ideas with. I’d be really excited to hear about your music!” Listen to her most recent productions here:

Pro Producer

Dave Sanderson

Dave Sanderson is a producer, studio, and mixing engineer based in Sheffield.

Dave's musical journey started around age 9 when he decided that he wanted to play keyboards and moved onto guitar around 13 because it was “cooler” to his 13-year-old self. He taught himself through listening to records, which inadvertently helped him develop a keen ear. 

Now, after having worked with producers who developed the Arctic Monkeys, Dave has headed into freelance work, coming to work in various studios including Make Noise.

You can also see the full range of projects that he's worked on by visiting my portfolio page.
