From an early age, music has been in Kerr’s blood. Spending all of his teenage years playing in local bands and listening to the likes of B.B King, Nirvana and R.E.M. he honed his accomplished guitar skills.
In 2016, Kerr graduated from Perth College UHI with a First Class honours degree in Audio Engineering, and through tutoring guitar students, began sharing his knowledge and expertise.
Alongside this Kerr began planning, designing and building The Echo Lab’s bespoke recording studios with the aim of being able to help artists develop new and interesting sounds.
An ever-expanding taste in music ranging from Buddy Holly through to Bon Iver (and a whole lot in between!) Kerr is always excited to work with new talent on fresh projects of any genre or concept.
