Hey, I'm George a London based producer/songwriter who goes under the name 'Brando Walker'. Past credits include Pixie Lott, Paloma Faith, Toni Romiti, Izzy Bizu & XamVolo to name a few. I am the type of producer that can play everything needed to get your track to a radio-ready polished product. I am also a Mixing/Mastering Engineer.
Who am I?
I started my career in the mid-2000s recording indie bands in different studios around the UK, but by the end of the decade, I decided to turn my attention to making more soulful records. I have a love for all pop music but I would say soulful R&B is where I tend to get the bulk of my work. I continue to work closely with labels such as RCA, Decca, Universal and have close connections to some of the best Jazz musicians in the country (I am based in Soho so am surrounded by them on a daily basis), so if you need amazing horn players I can definitely sort you out.
How I work.
I am an extremely fast worker and pride myself on wasting as little time as possible while maintaining the attention to detail that high-quality tracks/products need. I can work remotely or you are more than welcome to join me in the studio so we can work together face to face I really don't mind.
My usual turnaround on projects is between 1-3 days depending on the project and my availability, that includes 10 track revisions (but am willing to extend this within reason).
I am a fun-loving guy who is working in the industry he loves, and just wants to work with like-minded people and create some bloody good music!
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you think we would work well together I work with artists big and small if you're up for making some interesting I'm in!

Brando is an outstanding producer! Loved working with him and I’ll definitely come back for the future projects. Not only it was very professional but I had a fun, productive day. Brando made my song sound so incredible it was beyond my expectations. Would give more stars but I can only give 5 😅
Again an amazing Contribution by George as Vocalist and Lyricist . Will hire soon again. Highly recomandable !
George was so easy to work with, He was able to understand the ideas I couldn't out into words and helped me create a beautiful track.
I would definitely recommend him and will work with him for future songs :)
Working with him has been incredible, very professional, with a high sensitivity to understand exactly what is expected for the music, he is simply the best!
Again a true pleasure to work with George. Amazing Creativity, great Communication and top technical Skills. Actually I shouldn`t praise him too much.....otherwise he`ll soon be booked out ;-)
Great Performer, easy and fast communication, absolutely Pro. Also perfect recording quality. A pleasure to work with.
Brando is extremely talented at what he does (which is basically everything) and an absolute delight to work with! He’s always bringing the most creative ideas to the table and making my songs have such an edge. The first time I went to the studio it felt like I’d worked with him before, he really knows how to bounce off people’s energy and just create the most dynamic tunes. Would recommend him to anyone! Whether you’re a beginner or more advanced in the game, he can definitely provide what you need.
Brando really captured my vision for my upcoming single "Can't Provide" which he produced fully and mixed. When I was observing how he went about starting a project from scratch, I was completely amazed at the intricacy, creativity and attention to Minor details he showed, and he is so humble about what he can do as a producer/singer-songwriter. Once I realized his strong ability I immediately thought everything I put into this was worth it and couldn't wait to get back in the studio with him. He is really an asset to the music industry and young artists like myself.
Interview with George Harris
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I absolutely love analog gear, I used to have a studio in Soho with lot of amazing fun toys. But as of 2020 I have decided to go full digital, because I believe that is where the unique sounds lie, and it's super convenient. As one of the best mixing engineers (Andrew Scheps) says, "There’s a little bit of a myth about all analogue things being better than all digital things. Well, that’s not a little myth; that’s a gigantic myth. And it is completely a myth." and since converting to digital I can confirm he is right and it works for me. Analog is fun but not necessary any more.
