I'm a professional producer, mixing engineer and session guitarist from London, UK. I've worked with artists such as Lewis Capaldi, Rock Cake, The Ting Tings, Hannah Paris, Luke Carey and many more. I've also had my productions/mixes featured on official Spotify/Apple playlists, as well as countless BBC and other national radio stations.
I've been producing/mixing professionally now for almost 10 years, and take pride in everything I work on. Whether that's bringing an old song demo to life with a whole new production, or taking your production and giving it a mix that'll make it stand out, I will always do the best I can and work with you to make sure you are 100% happy.
I play guitar, bass and piano/keys, and am also very skilled in programming drums and string arrangement. I'm also lucky enough to know multiple drummers, cellists, violinists, bassists, pianists and basically anything who are top session players and ready to help bring your creations to life, all for very reasonable prices. So if we decide your song needs 'real' drums rather than programmed, we can make that happen. Or if we write an amazing string arrangement but need it professionally played/recorded, we can make that happen. Whatever needs doing, I'm here to get the best results for your song!
I'm open to all genres, but something I'm noticing more and more in music today is how there's a lot of crossover happening. I love this approach to producing and mixing, where we can come up with something exciting, new and unique.
Please do get in contact and send me your demos. I'd love to listen through and discuss the project with you and see what we can do.
Thank you, look forward to speaking with you soon.

Interview with Mike Wyatt
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I'll do my very best.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Hearing new music.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Communication is key.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: A guitar will keep me happy (or at least sane for a bit).
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Brittany Howard/Alabama Shakes - one of the best voices around currently, but also one of the most adventurous songwriters with incredible expression.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Trust your ears.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: For producing, most genres. I guess my strongest area would be indie/rock/blues/soul because that's what I've had the most experience in, but I do all sorts. Mixing - anything and everything.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Fresh ears and new ideas.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: With producing, I like to hear the song demo and trust what I hear a first or second time through. I believe that's when the best ideas come to mind, so I write everything down and share with the artist/client. Then we talk more in depth about inspirations and references to make sure we're on the same page, then I get to work, making sure to keep the artist informed and involved the whole time. With mixing, I like to start off by listening to the rough mix/demo to get their ideas on balance and how they want it mixed. Then I've get all the tracks/stems up in my DAW and get to work. Usually I'll mix in 1 sitting until it's 95% done, then I'll come back to it the next day with fresh ears incase I missed anything.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Anyone who has passion and can make me think/feel something within music.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Production and mixing.
