My family and I have a busy residential recording studio complex in the countryside near the seaside in Normandy, France
At the studio I write with, develop and produce music artists and bands who stay here for weeks or months at a time.
I've developed many music artists into well known acts and bands... I've had 17 top ten albums so far and aim to have many more....during my career my work has won 4 Brit awards!, 18 Grammys and 2 of my songs have won Ivor Novello awards...
Recently I became a single parent to three kids. Although, I have got a professional childcare-er who works 4 hours a day, and I have a cleaner who does 4 hours here twice a week. I'm looking or someone who appreciates music to vibe with us! and wants to benefit from living the studio life...
If you would like to 'sit in' on recording sessions and observe artist development and meet other interesting people... and perhaps even learn some of the tricks of the trade... then this is a great opportunity!!!
I'd happily pay for one hour a day plus accommodation and food...
Although it is cold and rainy at the moment (possibly damp!!)... so wrap up warm!!
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
There are many creative people coming and going from the studio so you would have the chance to meet new and interesting people. We live near the beach, in the summer it is busy with tourists, and in the winter it has a insular and windswept beauty... it's a great place to write a book! if that is your thing... or paint... or write music! ...naturally :) !
This host offers accommodation and payment.
Basic helping with babysitting , perhaps a little simple cooking... If you are interested in music or want to learn about artist development, song-writing or recording, then this would seem ideal.
I have lots of experience with studio assistants and au-pairs, but I'm now looking to find someone who is a bit of both !
We have a spare room on the ground floor of the main house with an en-suit bathroom. It is private and clean and tidy.
In the summer this is a touristy place and there are plenty of local activities to get involved with... from seaside activities on wide open beaches to horse-riding and lovely walks....
