Jim Wallis on SoundBetter

I'm an experienced producer and multi-instrumentalist who can take your song from a rough demo to a full, professional recording. I can help arrange your track, play a wide range of instruments including live drums and strings, and produce and mix it.

I work as a musician and producer out of the Bella Union recording studio at the Strongroom in in east London. The studio is based around a beautiful old Cadac desk and has a great collection of mics, outboard gear and instruments.

I play the drums, guitar, bass, keys, cello and banjo and I often work with solo artists to help them create full arrangements for their songs. As a session drummer, I've toured the world with the bands Still Corners and Modern Nature amongst others. I also really enjoy taking artists' home recordings, improving and adding to them in the studio to turn them into a full, professional production.

I'm always on the lookout for new artists to work with, so drop me a line if you're interested in working with me in any capacity.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

    An excellent mix again. Jim re-amped the guitars and did revisions to the mix following my feedback, I am super happy with the final result!

    I've been lucky enough to work with Jim on two tracks now, and both times he's delivered just what I was hoping for! He's quick to reply and simply great to work with. I definitely hope to work with him again in the future and can highly recommend him as a producer and instrumentalist.

    Three songs into the project and Jim deserves more than 5 stars. He is so comfortable to work with and has great input into the tunes.

    I have done two songs with JIm and find him to be easy to work with and very talented. The most important thing is that he ‘gets the song’ so the final project is everything I wanted and more. Highly recommended.

    Working with Jim is always a pleasure, he is a fantastic drummer and mixing engineer. He has a great attention to detail and strikes the perfect balance between listening to my ideas with an open mind and giving me some guidance when I need it. I can't recommend him highly enough!

    Jim was professional and delivered in a timely manner. He was a pleasure to work with because he took the time to understand the song and the artist. This was very important for the type of song I wrote. The parts he added such as cello were tasteful and complimentary to the track.
    I would not hesitate to work with JIm again and recommend him highly as a multi-instrument musician and producer.

    Jim is a skilled and tasteful Mix Engineer and Producer, as well as a drummer and all round musician and top guy. Highly recommended.

    Jim can basically do anything.
    He is a talented multi-instrumentalist, brilliant producer and generally a person you want to have in the room.
    But if you can't literally have him in the room, the next best thing would be to hire him to work on your music remotely, as I have done many times, as well as in the studio.

    He is a total joy - to quote myself on my album credits: "To Jim, for being talented, kind, calm and firm at exactly the right times."
