ABOUT The Founder

My name is Andrew Burland (Known as Elk) and I founded and developed Purple Elk Productions through my deep love and borderline obsession with music of all kinds.

I have a first class honours degree in music production and 35+ years’ experience as a professional musician, sound engineer and drum workshop facilitator and feel I am a very lucky soul to be so immersed in what I love to do for my profession.

I take enormous pride in my work and feel a great honour in being such an integral part of my clients’ events.

“Elk is a brilliant sound engineer, I worked alongside him as a stage rep for YANA festival and the sound was on point throughout the entire festival. Very easy to communicate with and clearly loves what he does with a passion!.”

Nathan Barrett

Musician and Band leader

“Efficient, proficient, and one of the nicest guys you’ll meet. He’s done sound for my band, and we’ve hired out his equipment for recording before. If you want someone focused yet easy to work with who’ll leave you with a smile on your face = Elk”

Becca Vafeas

Events Coordinator

We’re over the moon with the support Elk gave us for Oxjam Manchester. The set up looked and sounded brilliant and the feedback from the bands has been super positive. It made the day incredibly stress free knowing we had tech covered!

Chris Skrzynski

Owner Power Plant Nutrition

“Good communication… very easy to work with. And sound system was great. Elk even went to extra trouble to source the kit he didn’t supply, but that we needed. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend his services!”
