Haydn Bendall

Producer, Mixer & Engineer

Haydn started his musical career at Orange Studios in Soho and then went on to work as a piano tuner for Steinway and Sons. This led
to an opportunity at Abbey Road Studios where he worked for seventeen years, the last ten as chief engineer, and during this time was
introduced to quite possibly the widest selection of music and productions that any studio in the world could offer. In 1991 Haydn pursued
a freelance career but continues to return to Abbey Road frequently. His discography is extensive and credits endless.

Haydn is currently working with Mike Batt on a new musical and has recently finished mixing an album for the Two Siberians.
Other recent projects include mixing the debut album for Vincent Niclo (Sony) and Van Morrison: ‘Duets: Reworking the Catalogue’ as well as sessions with Min Lee, Ding Wei and Lang Lang.
