Early life[edit]

Cave was born in Liverpool. On his 8th birthday he received his first guitar from his father. He later proceeded to play in a variety of bands on the Liverpool circuit from the age of 12, and by 15 he was engineering sessions for his own bands and others in the area.[3] Cave grew up in the Anfield area of the city where he met members of his band The Sunlites. This led to a professional career in the music industry firstly as a musician before moving on to studio engineering, production and mixing.

Music career[edit]

The Sunlites and Mercury Records[edit]

In 1995 Cave's band the Sunlites signed a deal with Mercury. The record was finished, but never released, however the 2 years in the studio helped to introduce Cave to some highly regarded producers, including Kevin Bacon, and Jonathan Quarmby.[3]

In 1997, and after the band split up, Cave started working as an in-house engineer at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool, where he worked alongside Ken Nelson, Jeremy Wheatley (Space, Sugarbabes, Mel C), and Brendan Lynch.[3]

The Loft[edit]

In 2002 Cave opened his own studio, moving into a converted Manhattan-style loft in central Liverpool, which he named The Loft Studios.[1]
