audiobook with music

Steve produced the audiobook for my children's chapter book, Oleg the Giant, published by Olympia Publishing.

He also wrote and performed the music for it. He managed to capture the character of Oleg and his world and bring it to life through his music. It was really easy working with Steve. One of the best things was being able to describe what I wanted and for him to go away and do it independently. He kept to deadlines and always produced high quality work.

I would highly recommend Big D Studios.

promotional audio/video production

Many thanks for what must have been a lot of work to have done in such a short turnaround, you must have had some late nights. The video intro you designed and produced for my Retro Video Show is 100% what I wanted, with the little info I provided you managed to get a broad message in to a condensed advert.. I use it at the beginning of every Retro Video Show I present and even have attendee's requesting I play it again as if it were a song! One particular landlord loves it so much it wants to hear it all night in hour intervals ! The video and script hits every button, gets my message across in a short time but with enough content to keep the viewer interested & eager to see what the rest of the night will bring. I shall be recommending you to anyone I feel could use your services. Thanks again.

I have worked with BigDstudios a great deal over the last 7 years and have found them highly professional and easy to work with. All their work is of a very high quality. They are patient and extremely helpful and creative with ideas and input if required. I highly recommend this studio. Worth travelling to Devon for.

A special order of merit goes to Steve Watts at BigDStudios for stepping in at the 11th hour to help tidy up the mixes and EQ's, and for spending countless hours getting this li'l baby sounding as good as it possibly could! Thanks mate!

musical director for robin hood panto 2018/19

This was a double first for Exeter Little Theatre Company! We had never before worked with Steve on a show and we had never before tried his way of providing the music. Accustomed to a band pit crammed with musicians some wondered if this experience could be the right one. In the event the show was a resounding success due to many things but not least due the work of Steve and his associates. The music was always of the highest quality, it supported the actors rather than drowning them and best of all, these guys are a delight to work with. Suffice it to say that Steve was uppermost in our minds when looking for an MD for our next Panto.

Steve is fantastic! So professional and his knowledge is second to none! A joy to work with.
Lizzie Bialyk, Director


It is always good to have a rousing romp to take an audience into the spirit of Xmas and this production ticked all those boxes. From the opening number, The Greatest Show, the audience were made certain of the fact that they were going to be thoroughly entertained with two hours of powerful chorus work, confident harmony singing, slick choreography and strong soloists.

recording & music production

Steve is very patient and very skilled at what he does, and somehow managed to pull the best out of me and my performance. He helped me arrange my ideas into a song, of which I have had no end of complements with regards to the professional quality and sound of the song. Thank you.

My experience with Steve was fab. He was really easy going and put me at ease. It was a relaxed atmosphere and the finished result was great. I would definitely recommend him!
