  2. Review by Jeff K.

    Will was patient, easygoing, and delivered edits quickly. I would definitely work with him again.

  3. Review by Joshua L.

    I really enjoyed working with Will. I came to him with a really basic idea for a song and he helped me transform it into an epic piece with his creative ideas and clever ear for knowing what would work well. I'm really pleased with the product and look forward to working with him again!

    I worked with will to produce and master my 1st Album which will be released soon, but he's one person I know who is patient, calm and pays attention to any single detail. He worked on my music up to the required standard. Job well done Will 👏 ✔

    I worked with Will on my currently unreleased first single "Overgrown". I couldn't be happier with how it turned out, Will didn't stop until it was exactly how I visioned it in my head. It was an absolute pleasure working with him and I couldn't recommend him more! His attention to detail is amazing. :)

    After having a song mixed elsewhere with less than desirable results I searched for someone to do a another mix and found Will. He got what I was going for straight away and his initial mix was basically just what I was after! Only a few tweaks were necessary and communication was easy and friendly throughout the process. I compared masters too and Will's version came out on top so I look forward to doing more tracks soon and know exactly where I'll be coming!

  7. Review by Travis K.

    I work with Will completely remote for mixes and master and working with Will has been a complete pleasure. I've struggled to find the right person to work with for years and Will lets me go for exactly the sound I want to while being able to give me invaluable feedback that lets me record my next tracks even better the next time to get the best sound possible. You don't move on from a track unless its perfect with Will and he takes feedback amazingly well.

    Couldn't recommend Will more for any music services. Changed what I thought was possible when it came to my sound!

    Will Davies has been engineering and producing the tracks that'll become the third Zen Juddhism album. He has managed to capture the essence of the songs and give shine to the recordings. A pleasure to work with and easy to recommend.

    by Auld Gods

    We've been working with Will on our first album and he's been great. Professional, turns up on time and is well prepared. Ensures we get rough mixes st the end of each day. He knows what hes doing and quietly gets on with it. He accepts feedback and works hard to get our vision of what it should sound like acheived. He's friendly with good sense of humour which makes the whole process easier. Looking forward to working with him again.

  13. Review by Adriano Desire

    Professional, talented and creative guy. Will has worked on a couple projects of mine and he's delivered great work every time. I recommend him highly.

  14. Review by Anthony H.

    Will worked on my track “lies” which is out on 16th April on all places. He’s done an absolute class Job on the vocal for this track. He’s hands on. His communication and patience is just what you need. I was a pain through this track. He catered to exactly what I wanted to hear without having the terms to give him. Will be using will for 2/3 tracks this year. Great guy lots of experience in what he does. Cheers mate

    Will is a great producer, and more importantly a great person. Working with Will was efficient and enjoyable, he really allows the process to be directed by the artist. In addition his musical ability and his good ear for music really help to add creative influence to your music. Highly recommend !

    Will is a very friendly, speedy and professional producer for a project we worked on together. His enthusiasm for music and what he does shines through and inspired me as a result (when we all know how difficult it can be feeling happy with original content). Highly rate his musical abilities with instrumentation as well (and great value) - I recommend you to contact Will for your next project as I’m sure I’ll work with him again in future!

    Will is a pleasure to work with.

    He is patient and caring for bringing the best out in your tracks. I can’t wait to record more of my songs with him.

    If you want your music sounding more professional and someone that cares for the music. Then I would highly recommend Will!

    Will was helpful, understanding and overall produced a great mix and master of our song. His very fair prices are perfect for starting out musicians like us and we couldn't recommend him more. Our song sounds great because of him!

    Will produced several of my songs, he's intuitive, has a great ear and gets the job done quickly. He's excitable about music and an absolute pleasure to work with. I recommend him to all fellow musicians.

Interview with Will Davies

  1. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  2. A: My girlfriend once walked into my studio while I was mixing and asked "what game I was playing" nothing more to be said.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: I have just started working with a little independent label so I am working on a lot of stuff for them at the moment which is generally Rock/Alternative styles.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: There are so many of my mixing idols on this platform, its very cool to be on here. Jacquire King is a huge, huge influence but there is a whole list.

  7. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  8. A: "How soon can you deliver" is a question I always get when working with clients, which is expected of course. Per mix never takes me longer than a day and a half. I usually finish it in a day, sleep on it, have a listen in the morning then send it off.

  9. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  10. A: Amazing question. In order I would take my headphones, my laptop, a charger for my laptop, UA Apollo, Kensington trackball (Possibly the most important)

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: I believe my vocal processing is my strongest skill.

  13. Q: What's your typical work process?

  14. A: I think I have quite a regular approach when it comes to mixing. Usually start with the drums then moving onto Bass then Guitar and Vocals. I'd say I spend most of my time on the vocals. Im pretty sure I'm echoing Greg Wells here but the Vocal is 100% THE most important element of any song/project so its vital that its right.

  15. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  16. A: Digital for me, I understand completely why people would say analog but I just feel there is an undeniable sense of freedom when is comes to working digitally and stuff is so advanced these days that the "sound" is extremely close if not the same.

  17. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  18. A: My promise is to always deliver on what they want and to make sure we don't stop no matter how long it takes.

  19. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  20. A: I graduated with a Masters in Music Production & Engineering in 2018 and I have been doing freelance mixes since then.

  21. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  22. A: I feel I bring a youthfulness to my mixing. I understand what is current and popular at the moment, I also know how to achieve it.

  23. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  24. A: Taking breaks is my biggest tip... it is incredibly important to give your ears a break and to let your brain process the work you have done.

  25. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  26. A: A proud moment of mine would be when I was played on BBC Radio for the first time, the song was produced solely by myself so it was definitely a standout event.

  27. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  28. A: Getting to know the people that I am working with. all of my closest friends have been met either playing on stage together or working in studios.

  29. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  30. A: What does happiness and success mean in terms of this project?

  31. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  32. A: I think getting to know each other before you start working together is important, get to know each other's inspirations and favourite artists, in doing this it will be easier to put across and understand ideas.

  33. Q: How would you describe your style?

  34. A: I would describe my style as a nod to 70s recording styles light compression is one of my main styles, I feel this allows the listener to be transported into the room with the artist.

  35. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  36. A: I would love to work with Sam Fender, I really believe he has the potential to reignite the love for guitar music in Britain again.

  37. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  38. A: I usually work on Acoustic/singer-songwriter styles of music and Rock.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: At the moment my studio setup is a modest one. I run Logic Pro X using a 2020 iMac. I record everything through a Rode NT1-A Microphone which is processed through an SSL 2+ interface which is beautiful.

  41. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  42. A: Greg Wells is a huge inspiration to me, I feel that he is the most relevant engineer out there right now, he seems to have an ability to turn his hand to any sort of recording, whatever the genre which I really admire, the ability to adapt is key in this industry.

  43. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  44. A: Mixing music to a radio standard quality to ensure that artists look their best online.
