James Cardell-Oliver

Pedal Steel Legend

For James, classical music has been a passion throughout the duration of his extremely long life. From being forced by his parents to play the violin, to rebelling and becoming a pedal steel legend, James merges his love of music and years of creative marketing experience to supercharge the Mill Media Company.

Ben Sharpe

RNCM Dropout

Ben studied saxophone on the performance course at RNCM for one year. He ditched that and instead went on to complete a degree in audio engineering and production, which led to merging both worlds, resulting in the birth of Mill Media Co. Ben still enjoys pretending to be a musician and loves to see digital media magnify classical music.
