Nice to meet you, I'm Ewan! I'm a mixer, engineer, and vocal producer based in London who's passion is helping people elevate their music. I work directly with ambitious artists, helping them achieve their creative vision. I've been fortunate enough to work with artists like Stormzy, Jesy Nelson, Raye, and many more.

4 ReviewsEndorse Ewan Vickery
Ewan is an incredible mixer, and awesome to work with! He preserved the feel of the original production and created a spacious, clear and dynamic mix. Highly recommended for mixing needs!
Super friendly and very communicative, flexible and in the end delivered a great mix.
Ewan is one of the best I've worked with. He's super attentive to requests and is very patient. Working with him felt more like a collaboration than a "for hire," because he's so invested in the song. He even went the extra mile to help out on the production of a section (which came out amazing). Will continue to work with him.
Top-tier, would highly recommend.

Getting it out there into the world!

Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started engineering and producing when I was 16 at high school. I fell in love with the process of making music and knew that this is what I wanted to do. From there I went to the University of Surrey's prestigious Tonmeister course, where the foundation of my technical ability was set. During my year in industry, I worked at Monnow Valley Recording Studio in Wales where I worked with bands such as Idles and The Alarm. In this time I learnt so much about how to run recording sessions and communicating with artists. Since graduating in 2019 I've been freelancing in London where my business has grown and grown!

They might all be making music in different genres, but they work tirelessly at their craft and are true artists when it comes to writing SONGS.

A: Art without meaning is just decoration.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, Rap, or Rock music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I'm that person you need when your song needs finishing. After it's been produced, I'm someone you can rely on to take the song to the finish line, whether that be through mixing, vocal production or editing.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: The first thing I like to do with any new client is assess what your current situation is and what you want the outcome to be from us working together. As you can see above, there are many pieces of the music process that I specialise in. We'll sort out what you need on a project basis or an on-going basis. For example, some artists come to me for mixing but actually need some additional production work first, or a studio may bring me on to help with vocal production for ongoing sessions. After we've assessed your needs we will dive right into working on your project. Whether it's a single session or a multiple song album I will put my all into your project. I appreciate a very collaborative process even if we're working remotely. I also appreciate organisation so we will lay out timelines and milestones so that we're efficient and everything runs smoothly. My goal is to be your confidant, friend, and creative partner. This is why I value building a long-term working relationship. For artists, I am happy to help beyond just making the music and bring resources to the table that help you grow. For working producers, studios, managers, and labels... I am always happy to work out a long-term arrangement that makes sense for you creatively and financially.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have my mixing room at home in London where I do all of my mixing and editing. When people hire me for recording I'm usually working out of various studios around London such as Sarm Studios, Westpoint Studios and Strongroom Studios.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: One of my biggest inspirations is Quincy Jones. Not only is the man a superb musician, having played with the likes of Miles Davis, but his commitment to his art and the way he brings the best people together is something to behold.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I'm usually recording or mixing artists of various different genres.
