Head Producer. Singer/Songwriter. Guitarist. Muso
Michael originally set out on his music career as a Musician, and has since been working across a variety of roles within the music industry focusing on helping independent bands and artists with their music production.
After forming the band A DAY BEFORE YOU Michael spent most of his time writing and recording new music for the band, and in 2010 recorded the band’s self titled EP. Since this time Michael has formed, written and produced multiple bands including DRMRS in 2017, and his most recent project CHARMING MIKE in 2019.
Alongside his love of writing and performing original music, Michael has always been interested in the production side of the music business. He decided to further his music career by exploring Sound Engineering and learning Production skills, and very quickly built up an exemplary reputation as the ‘go to’ guy for young emerging artists and bands looking to record and release their ‘Radio Ready’ music on a tight budget.
As a result, in more recent years, Michael’s production skills and reputation as a highly sought after Producer and of course, his effervescent personality, has attracted a regular Client list including indie powerhouses Bellevue Days, Paves, Saltlake, Best of Enemies and more.
MEDIA, MARKETING AND MUSIC BUSINESS. ENTREPRENEUR.
Stephen came into the music business as a relatively late starter, having spent many years running successful media and marketing businesses in the world of brand advertising.
With a burning desire to dovetail his day to day business interests with a lifelong love of music, he established Versonic Music Limited in 2015. Stephen fast-tracked his progress by signing up to an intensive course of Songwriting, learning from, and writing with multi-platinum selling, Grammy and Ivor Novello Award Winning Songwriters. He then embarked on an ambitious project to write, record and release an album learning the processes along the way.
Debut single ‘Brand New Man’ title track of the album was self-released worldwide on 1st January 2018 and was described by IndiePulse Music Magazine as ‘The musical equivalent of the New Year Resolution’. The ‘Brand New Man’ album was released in June 2018 under the auspices of his band, VERSONIC. The ‘Brand New Man’ single was voted the best Pop-Rock song in the March 2018 Academia Music Awards, and the ‘Brand New Man’ album won a Silver Medal for Songwriting, Lyrics and Cover Art in the Global Music Awards in October 2018.
Stephen has followed up the album project with 2019 Versonic singles – A Second in Time, Dance with the Devil and Waiting for Tomorrow.

Alan Smith is lead singer and guitarist for Indie Rock band Bellevue Days.

As a Songwriter, Alan has credits on the Bellevue Days’ three critically acclaimed EP Records released by the band; Rosehill, Sad Boy and The Sun Came Up When We were Young. The band’s eagerly awaited debut album is due for release in the summer of 2019.
Probably my favourite band in the whole world
– Alex Baker – Kerrang
Alan’s trademark vocals; strong and soaring in parts but soft and tender in others create a whimsical atmosphere to his sound. Alan has contributed to, and been featured on numerous releases from other artists, and unsurprisingly is held in very high esteem by his musician peers.
We are extremely fortunate to have him as an integral part of the Versonic Music team.
