Paul McInally is 45's owner and resident engineer, having built the studio to spec with every element of the studio aiding his recording process. Whilst producing, his input can be vast, regularly contributing ideas whilst invariably building tracks to a large, organic sound - his production trait.

Paul has produced music for over 13 years, having previously worked largely in rock, hip-hop and electronic music whilst freelance and has since recorded an eclectic range of genres such as orchestral and string compositions; including the soundtrack to a BAFTA-winning film, acoustic, Americana, jazz and contemporary folk.

Since the studio was established over 7 years ago, Paul has worked on over 300 releases with:
