Martin Wykes on SoundBetter

I was signed by triple Ivor Novello Award Winning Songwriter Bill Martin MBE (see photo) as a co writer with him. I also have a sync deal in the US.

I can write you a catchy pop song or help co write a song with you. Maybe you're an artist that needs extra songs for an album or a vocalist or band that would like your own material. Also you might have lyrics and would like to have them made into songs with a melody.

The excerpts from the five songs on my song showreel are -

Like Keef - Pop/Disco a bit Maroon5
Rear View Mirror - Pop with a latin vibe
Supernatural - Funky Disco Pop - Chic(ish)
The Girls That Keep The Dogs Off - Pop/Rock maybe Little Mix
One Moment Loving You - Pop Ballad Ellie Goulding style

These songs were written and recorded by me and all include Soundbetter talent such as vocalists, lead guitar and mastering. These songs are also available for a publisher or Artist/ Band as they are unpublished works.

My background is playing in house bands which meant you had to be able to play lots of styles of music and learn FAST. I have over 30 years experience in playing and writing music. I play piano, guitar and drum kit and have been lucky enough to record in Abbey Road Studios, played with Don Felder of the Eagles, several times on BBC radio and live from the BBC's famous Maida Vale studios, I've also played festivals and in stadiums.

I would now like to take my years of musical experience and use it to help you so please reach out if you think I can help you .

Best! Martin

    Had the most pleasing experience mastering Martin's track! This one was analog-tape mastered on my Ampex ATR102/104 and it came out fantastic! On top of that, Martin's super detailed & thorough feedback was incredibly valuable and accurate. Appreciate he took the time to do his homework on such a level of detail! A top-tier client and such a nice guy! 5/5 and 100% recommended! Hope to do it again soon!

    Martin is a real pleasure to work with. Amazing composer and meticulous communicator, I learned a few things about my style and instinct as a bass player, through our exchanges. I couldn't ask for more.

    Martin was great to work with. I sang falsetto and harmony parts on a very cool song of his. Communication was great. He was very detailed about diction and specific about what parts he needed. There was also a little freedom to choose harmony parts. Great experience!
