Welcome

Welcome to Cadwallader-Taylor
The Song Writing, Recording and Music Production Partnership of
Alan Cadwallader and Barrie Taylor.

Formed back in the late autumn of 1985 the partnership had one simple aim……

“to write, record and produce great music”.

Writing, Recording & Producing

Writing, recording and producing songs in the comfort and convenience of their own studio in, Greater Manchester, United Kingdom, they have, throughout the years been involved with many different projects and numerous musicians working alongside seasoned professionals such as…. Vocalist Steve Butler (Cliff Richard/ Barclay James Harvest) Vocalist Mathew Ford (BBC/ London Concert Orchestra/ John Wilson Orchestra) vocalist Rachel Ashley (just about everyone!).
Producers Nigel Stonier (Lindisfarne/ Thea Gilmore) Arny Sage (Shane Ritchie/Peter Kay/Kim Marsh/Toyah) Gary Hadfield (Elbow/Gorillaz/Snoop Dog/Justin Timberlake/Paul Heaton/Pharrell Williams/Mark Ronson) also with Graeme Park (Manchester Hacienda/ Key 103), Paul Birchall (M. People), JK & Joel (Key 103/ BBC Radio One), also with writers Camberjem (Shayne Ward/ N Trance), bands Moriarty, Pro-Create, Panacea, Hoi-Polloi, The Executive, Green Vigo, John E Taylor, The Andy Penzak Trio and many other friend’s colleagues and likeminded individuals along the way.

Always looking to take the Cadwallader-Taylor sound to new levels, the ultimate aim of Alan and Barrie is the same today as it was back in 1985……
“to write, record and produce great music”

Chez Nous

Chez Nous is the name given to the recording studio in Greater Manchester where the partnership is based. In the early years, it was originally the back bedroom of Barrie’s parents’ house, today it is a purpose built modern recording and music production facility.
