01// How much do you charge?
Every project is different and every artist has something unique they want to convey with their music. Because of this, I don't have standard rates, but instead, give an individual quote for each project I am. This being said, my fee for a full production will often float around the £600 mark to take a song from a simple demo to final production.
02// What is your process? How does it work?
The first step to getting started with your project is simply to jump on a call and discuss what you have in mind for your project and what you're hoping to achieve.
If we decide that we want to go ahead and work together I'll send you my simple producer-agreement contract and we'll get some studio sessions booked in the calendar. For me, 3 studio sessions are normally the perfect amount of time to get a production completely finished. Before the sessions, I'll always ask to hear a demo of the song you want to record and any reference tracks you have in mind.
Getting into the studio is where the real fun begins! This is where I can turn your simple demo into a full production. We'll get the song sounding exactly how you imagine it: whether that's a Top-40 style electronic pop track or a rootsy folk song with live drums, guitar, and bass. Whatever you want!
After our studio sessions, I'll finalize the production from home, and get the song sent off for mixing and mastering.
Once the song is completely finished, I'll be more than happy to help you navigate the confusing world of releasing music if that's new to you!
03// What do you do?
I am a producer, songwriter guitarist, drummer, and bassist working closely with artists to bring their musical vision to life. I started playing drums at 8 years old and have now been working as a professional musician for over 7 years. I now specialize in the genres of Pop, Americana, and Country. Nothing excites me more than getting to make great music with great people.
04// Where are you based? Do I need to travel to work with you?
I'm based in London, UK. A lot of the artists I work with enjoy coming to my studio to make music together in person, but I also work remotely with artists from all over the world and have just as much fun in the process!
05// What are your payment terms?
I always take payments in two halves. The first half before starting work on a project and the second half once the production is finalized. I also take a small deposit to secure studio dates if we are working in-person.
06// Do you take royalties?
I take a standard 5% cut of the master royalties for songs I have produced. Even so, the artist or label retains full ownership and admin rights of the masters. Depending on the project, I will occasionally take a publishing royalty also, but this is only in cases where I have also contributed to the songwriting. Royalties can be a confusing subject, don't hesitate to reach out if you're not totally sure what I mean by any of this!
07// Why should I work with you instead of another producer?
It's a fair question. A quick Google search or Instagram scroll will quickly make you realize that there's no shortage of music producers in the world. In my experience, however, there is a shortage of producers that have the passion and experience needed to make an artist's vision come to life. Coupled with the fact that producers aren't exactly renowned for their reliability and ability to meet deadlines, finding someone to trust with your music starts to seem much more difficult!
My promise is that by working with me, you will have my complete dedication to your project - working to your deadlines so that you never have to worry about whether or not something will be finished in time for your release schedule. I'll do everything I can to make the entire process as enjoyable and creatively fulfilling as possible so that you walk away with a song you're proud to call your own.
