John Leckie


John Leckie

John Leckie is one of British music's most prolific record producers, having worked on such high-profile albums as "The Bends" by Radiohead, "Origin of Symmetry" by Muse, George Harrison's "All Things Must Pass", the eponymous debut album of The Stone Roses and The Verve's "A Storm in Heaven".

Leckie began his career at Abbey Road Studios as an in-house engineer. During this time he worked with Pink Floyd, all of the Beatles individually as well as many other musicians. Eventually he left and became a freelance producer.

In 1974 Leckie decided to move to Cornwall, setting up a residential recording studio just outside of Fowey called Sawmills.
