Dave Way on SoundBetter

4x Grammy winner Dave Way has dozens of multi platinum credits and hits: MJ, Fiona Apple, Pink, Phoebe Bridgers, Weird Al, Ziggy Marley, Kesha, Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters, Jakob Dylan, Christina Aguilera, Prince, TLC, Spice Girls, Guy, and MANY more. “My broad experience and love of music helps me bring out what is unique in each project.”

I primarily mix but also produce and master. I have a state of the art studio that enables me to do pretty much everything from soup to nuts and I have long time relationships with the finest musicians in L.A.

I have had a lot of success in most every style: Pop, rock, hip hop, Americana, Soul, Singer/songwriter, Jazz, Film scores, television. I particularly specialize in pop music but I do enjoy projects that are unusual and unique.

The price quotes are just a ballpark but since I’m
new to SoundBetter, I’m hoping a discount rate will get the ball rolling and connect me with people looking to work with a pro. Once I know more specifics about your project, we can hopefully find a suitable rate.

    I can't recommend Dave highly enough. From start to finish, he delivered exactly what I asked for and was extremely quick in his responses. I couldn't be happier with how my song turned out. Thank you Dave, you're the best!!!

    Dave saved my EP, he mixed 2 songs I'd previously had mixed by a top producer but wasn't 100% satisfied with the results. Dave more than beat the mix on the first pass. He added a creative spark, a polished sheen, and an edge, all while nailing my mix tweaks with a lightning quick turnaround. Moreover, he has a kind and professional demeanor. I cannot recommend him highly enough, and look forward to working again with him in the future!

    I cannot recommend Dave Way highly enough. He nailed everything I asked of him, breathed a fresh creative spark into the mix, and was very prompt, kind, and professional in his responses. He is truly a class act. I look forward to working with him again as soon as possible.

    I came to Dave with a track that had become a staple of the band's live set that needed a remix. He got it there on the first mix, was quick and precise with the revisions I sent, and I'm thrilled with where we got the track

    Another brilliant mix from Dave. His creativity permeates through his work. He not only tightened up my production/tracking work, but pulled instruments in and out to make the final sonic palette far richer and way more dynamic than I had it. Dave is also a really nice guy to deal with, which made the whole process even more enjoyable.

    Dave is an incredible professional and worked closely with us to execute our vision for our song. His ability to transform an idea into a fully produced song is incredible to be a part of and we hope to work with Dave for a long time! Can't recommend him enough

    I mean, it's Dave Way! The guy is a living legend in the mixing world and the fact that he has made himself available to unsigned artists at what would be a considerably reduced rate speaks volumes to the sort of person he is. Dave delivered an incredible mix for me. You can see that he thought it through in depth and used his years of experience to add in all the mixing tricks it needed to make the song pop. I will be using him again as soon as I have another song ready.

    Dave is extraordinary. His aesthetic and sensibilities are as artistic and modern as it gets. He took a difficult track and made it sound amazing straight away. A huge honor and pleasure to work with. Really hope to work together again one day.

    Working with Dave was fantastic. As soon as he sent me a mix I knew I had made the right choice - I was completely blown away. Not only did he pay careful attention to the notes, references, and rough mix I had sent him, he took things much further in a way that could only come from an enormous amount of wisdom and experience.

    If you want your song to be the best version of itself and translate effortlessly, go with Dave. Simple as that. I will definitely be sending more projects his way.

    Dave is the epitome of taste, class and musicality. He's also incredibly easy to talk to and get along with. win/win/win... it's a no brainer to work with Dave. easiest decision you'll ever make.
