It was an amazing experience working with Simon. His high level production is without a doubt one of the best on Soundbetter. His professionalism and open mind allowed for a wonderful collaboration. If you are looking for a top producer or mixer, we highly recommend Simon to execute your project.
Simon is a great pop producer and super easy to work with. I really enjoyed hearing the

Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: They usually ask me what my delivery time is. My answer is always 2 weeks from start to finish.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I produced and co-wrote AOA's song Super Duper. It was written on a sunny day in October with no other intentions than making a great K-pop song for the mentioned artist. It then ended up being cut on their EP as the second song of it.

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

A: My Macbook Pro, Apogee Duet, my microphone, guitar and midi keyboard.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started as a drummer when I was around 10. Picked up guitar a few years later as well as some basic piano skills. Years after I was the lead singer, top liner and guitar player in a band. We decided to do an EP which I became the producer for. I instantly fell in love with the production side of music and got totally obsessed with it. I then decided that I wanted to be a professional music producer and songwriter for other artists and have since then, got signed by a Swedish publisher, had big releases with artists in Korea, The Netherlands, USA as well as Sweden. I've also produced lots of songs for indie artists and clients online.
Q: How would you describe your style?

A: I would love to work with Julia Michaels, her vocals are amazing and she has such a great feeling for melodies and lyrics.
