John Wardley (Creative Consultant for Merlin Entertainments)
At last I’ve found a talented musical composer and arranger who really understands the theme park industry. Rides and shows have very special and unique requirements, and Nick is able to produce music tailored specifically to those requirements.
Cat LaCohie/Vixen DeVille - Actor, Variety Performer and Theatre creator
Nick is my absolute "go-to" for any music composition, from supporting voice-over tracks, scoring live theatre or creating stand alone tracks for my circus/burlesque routines and magic illusions. He knows exactly how to hit the tone and genre I'm going for. I am perpetually in awe of this man's work and can only hope he continues to have the time (and interest) to work with me long into the future. I currently can not conceive of collaborating with any other composer!
Tom Gravett (Events Producer at Café Des Paris)
Nick fulfilled the brief of creating a score that was perfect for our venue and brand, yet still unique and fresh. Working closely with Reuben Kaye and the creative team, Nick wrote a fantastic score and then continued to produce the music during rehearsal and initial showings to create an end product that far exceeded our expectations
Penny France (Senior Entertainments Operations Manager at Chessington World of Adventures Resort)
Nick was able to work with us very closely to create suitable audio. He was pro-active and adapted very easily to what we needed. Nick created a number of different audio clips, sound effects and theme tunes very professionally and perfectly suited to our brand, very easy to work with.
Jonathan Fell (Managing Director of The Ice Cream Farm, Cheshire)
"Nick composed and delivered a bespoke audio package for the park covering a wide range of sound worlds and styles to match our eclectic range of family attractions. He worked closely with our team of managers to ensure the final product matched our brand and vision".
Jonathan Shotton (Creative Producer - Midway at Merlin Entertainments.) "Nick Hutson is a musical genius! ". I thoroughly enjoy working with him on my projects; he always delivers! If you want the job done well - go to Nick!"
Mike Dixon (Conductor, Composer and Music Supervisor)
Nick Hutson has a huge amount of potential as a composer, both in Musical Theatre and Spectacular Theme Park events. He has an identifiable 'sound' which is the key to future success. I am happy to be a mentor & friend.
Reuben Kaye (Cabaret Performer and Director)
Nick has been collaborating with me since I began working in the international cabaret scene. I couldn’t ask for a better collaborator; the quality of his work is extraordinary and I feel, as an artist, he has truly got to know my vocabulary and matched it seamlessly. His grasp of genres is overwhelmingly complete and his work as an arranger/orchestrator is marvellous. I would wholeheartedly recommend him for any job.
Robert Coker (Senior Show Writer and Creative Developer for Super78 Studios)
Nick is more than just a great composer; he's a great composer who loves musical theater and theme parks. His passionate understanding of their respective "musical storytelling" conventions always shows in his fantastic work.
Dominic McChesney (Sudden Impact Entertainment Company)
Working with some of Hollywood's leading brands it is essential that our attractions meet with the highest quality possible. Nick's music has proven to meet our demands and working with him is always a pleasure. He listens to the needs and works closely with a client's direction offering knowledge and expertise to hone the finished product. Moreover he is passionate about his work and embraces any project with equal enthusiasm. In a market where it is easy to get off the rack soundtracks, he proves that the use of original music for your attraction is an asset not to be overlooked.
Hannah Worrall (Sales and Marketing Manager - Bristol Aquarium)
Nick has been a pleasure to work with, applying the brief and consequential feedback with absolute precision. Nick has been great at keeping this project moving when I have been otherwise distracted with other work and required absolutely nothing except thoughts and feedback from me. Thank you Nick for putting together a catchy, fun and creative piece for Bristol Aquarium!
