Taking control in the studio during recording of Black Bones, Red Earth, was ScoopFX Audio Technician, Stephen Kiely. After getting to know him well over weeks of studio work, Stephen proved to be quite a creative talent in his own right. Stephen is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer and performer, who writes and produces film soundtracks, advertising jingles and songs covering genres as diverse as pop-rock, country and jazz.
Stephen has performed solo live locally and internationally, and also collaborated with and produced many of Australia’s top-ranked performers, playing keyboards and guitars. He was an early adopter of Digital Audio Workstation recording and is comfortable producing on any number of recording applications on both Mac and Windows platforms.
Working at ScoopFX Music Studios in Sydney’s northwest, Stephen has written, performed, and produced songs for many of Australia’s rising stars, while creating the complete recordings of the Busy Izzy project, co-written and produced with Roxanne Kiely.
ScoopFX Music is also a well-respected music tuition school, founded by Roxanne and Stephen in 2002, catering to vocalists, pianists, guitarists and song writers.
