Nicholas O'Brien on SoundBetter

Award-winning sound engineer, producer and multi-instrumentalist. I've recorded everywhere from world-class studios to the Himalayas. Have worked with Liz Fraser, Bernard Butler, Eliza Shaddad, Fémina, Fishbach, Juliette Armanet, Sam Lee, TEN FÉ, Afghan Women’s Orchestra, Alabaster dePlume, London Contemporary Voices, Jungle By Night.

My 10+ years of experience as a sound engineer & producer has taken me touring and recording/producing/mixing in all sorts of crazy places and I have learnt to always get the best results possible. I work mostly in alt-pop, electronica, folk, jazz, soul, prog but am always open to work in any genre.

I create a unique sound world for the artist. I spend time learning about your influences and your vision for the track. It's important that you feel you're walking away with tunes that sound great, unique, move people and feel like you.

From my London studio I offer:
- Arranging and producing a full track. I'm a multi-instrumentalist (drums, bass, guitar, synths, clarinet) with a well-equipped professional studio with lots of great hardware and synths
- Songwriting. including music, melodies and lyrics
- Recording / Programming. includes drums, bass, guitars, all midi synths etc, male / female vocals, string arranging
- Vocal production. vocal arranging e.g. tuning, comping, time alignment
- Mixing. I'll work hard to make your track shine and work with you to find your unique sound

I'd love to hear from you if you have any musical idea that needs some production. I'm happy to work with anything from a little voice memo that needs a full professional arrangement and mix, to produced tracks that need a final mix.
