The intriguing Corsican: Henry Padovani, was the original guitarist in ThePolice, forming the band with Sting & Stewart Copeland and remains one ofSting’s closest friends. He was the guitar player in Wayne County & TheElectric Chairs & plays with his own, long-established psycho-garage, thrashpunk,instrumental trio – The Flying Padovani’s. He is also lead judge on theFrench X Factor and a regular contributor to many French TV shows, with a new live music series (think "Later") coming up next year, based around Henry & Paris’ famous Le Gibus club. Together with Mary de Vivo of Le Reservoir, herepresents the affairs of the Briggite Bardot Estate and IP and represents Mark St. John’s and Cayman Music’s Bob Marley interests in France. With all this, he also manages to operate a career as a major record producer and a successful solo artist, orking live alongside many major US artists in France. He has arguably the smelliest dog in Paris & is the funniest uy we know. He was the manager of Zucchero, and broke the band REM in the UK, when he ran IRS Records. He nows a true story about Pavorotti’s underpants...... ! To say that Henry Padovani enjoys a wide-ranging career. Would be a mild understatement! We are lucky enough to be heavily involved in all of Henry’s musical activities, and producing and representing his new solo record, which will shortly be completed, after the addition of strings in Gothenberg and the addition of specific guest artists like Marianne Faithfull and Dick Taylor. This will be Henry’s first ever totally solo, principally acoustic, one man record, with the body of the material being written by him. It is a major work, and the response to the first mixes has been immensely positive and very, very xciting. Henry’s input and energy has also been a huge part of developing the career of CBBR writer and singer Sacha Morgan, whom we intend to sign in France, where she has already been well received and is beginning to become known. Sacha appears on Henry’s album and he is featured on hers. It is a wonderful and highly effective relationship, giving benefit to both parties. Henry is a unique, highly experienced writer and an incredible guitarist, with a range of songs and titles that is breathtaking. He has had much success historically as a co-writer and performer, and we are priviliged to have been chosen to publish the new album and all Henry’s future works, which we believe will be very successful throughout Europe and in the UK & USA... And he is always busy with "The Flying Padovani’s"... they are the chosen artist’s of representation of London’s "Ace Cafe" the home of rock n oll and bikers, and they are the partnering artists for Harley Davidson throughout the EU, a huge honour.Henry Padovani is a truly International artist and personality, and has an open invitation everywhere – just don’t let him bring the dog! Key Songs: "Give Me Love", "Tu Reviendras", "I Am Spartacus".

Stuart Epps' musical career began in 1967 as a 15-year old office junior at Dick James Music. He quickly moved up the industry ladder to become Chief Engineer at DJM Studios, then later toured the USA with Elton John as personal assistant.
Stuart was involved from the start when Elton's producer, the late Gus Dudgeon, built The Mill Studios on the banks of the Thames, near Maidenhead. It was not long before Dudgeon asked Epps to become Chief Engineer, Studio Manager and Producer.
In recent years he has continued to work with big name artists to great acclaim, as well as helping a host of promising new and up-and-coming artists to sound their best, both on demo recordings and in full studio productions. With decades of experienced garnered from working with the very best musicians at the top of the industry, coupled with a real love for music, Stuart has an intuitive knack for knowing just what will make each track sound most authentic, a deep understanding of musicians and their needs and a clearheaded, dedicated approach to getting the job done. The Flower Power era – and a 15-year-old music fanatic living right in the midst of it. Just out of school, Stuart Epps landed a job which was to influence the rest of his life. He took his first step into the music business as an errand boy for Dick James, the man who discovered the Beatles. Stuart says about the beginnings of his career: "Even though I was only the errand boy, I had stepped into an exciting world". With a lot of ambition he worked his way up through being a disc cutter / tape copier and assistant engineer to the position of producer in only two years. During that time he became friends with the still relatively unknown Elton John and his manager Steve Brown and decided to become part of his career. At 18 years of age, he accompanied Elton John as his personal assistant on his US tour and experienced Elton’s sky rocketing career at first hand. Stuart was also A&R Manager for Rocket Records where he also co-managed Kiki Dee. In 1974, producer Gus Dudgeon asked him if he would like to work in his studio – the now legendary Mill Studios – which he was just in the process of building. "Construction took two years and resulted in the most noble, and most modern studio of its time", says Stuart. There he rediscovered his true passion for recording and producing. "To experience an album or a song taking shape from the demo version to the final master is a great feeling", Stuart said. He worked on many projects with artists including Elton John and Chris Rea. Later, Jimmy Page bought the studio in the early 80’s and Stuart became the Studio Manager and began to work with Heavy Rock artists like Led Zeppelin.
After gathering enough experience, he took over Alvin Lee’s private studio "Wheeler End" in 1994 and turned it into a residential commercial studio. Among his customers were John Leckie (Beatles, Stone Roses, Muse) and Craig Leon (The Ramones, Blondie). He also worked on his projects with Oasis, Robbie Williams , Mark Owen and Paul Weller. Up to this day, Stuart is actively involved in the music business and also instructs students at the SAE in Oxford He says: "I have always felt privileged to have a career that I am passionate about".
