I highly admire your work because each instrument on your productions have own personality and soul. Even if most of the productions aren't close to genre that I like, the overall effect of the songs is really something special. When I'm listening to James Bay "Chaos and the Calm" album, the space around each instrument is really beautiful. I know that it was recorded in Blackbird studio and there are moments when vocal chamber is used. However what about:
- Guitar in Hold back The River Entry, is it natural ambience? How this reverb was created?
- The same question for vocal in the entry...
What would be your general advice on creating artificial spaces in a song, how to create unique space for each instrument using reverb/delay.

Thank you very much for your answers!

The intro guitar uses a few reverbs in the sound, pedal, amp, and chamber as a combination... The vocal is a plate... & for creating space around a voice I use 2 to 3 reverbs and delays in combination, short and long combined, asa well as discreet effects for each instrument while recording and mixing
