Wayne Wilkins on SoundBetter

I have written / produced / mixed songs for Beyonce and many others.. I Have had 20 years Experience as a producer/songwriter and mixing engineer. I love writing music and making records come to life. Our team won't be able to take on everything but would love to hear if we can make what you have better or create something new for your project.

My professional career started at Abbey Road, Townhouse and Olympic where I learned how to record, mix, and produce from the best producers and engineers in the world. Whilst doing that I was in the perfect environment to also use my skills as a classical/Jazz pianist to play on many records. My favorite fact is, the first person I ever recorded vocals for was Tina Turner. I found myself writing and producing records and naturally, mixing them by then was second nature. I learned early on that the secret to a great sounding record is to make sure the right sounds are being used from the beginning before spending weeks on a production. I can help you with that and it naturally ensure you have amazing sounding work. I moved from London to Los Angeles in 2002 which we have now made home. I am still so obsessed with every aspect of music and am in the continual pursuit of perfection and having fun at the same time. We have a great team here and would like to help you if we can

    • Wayne is absolutely amazing! He transformed my song and brought life to it and I am well satisfied. He is fast and delievers his promise in a very professionalway.  His ability to interpret the overall vibe, vision and goal was effortless... AND he took the time to add vital improvement to my hook and it came out well. When I looked at his profile and his never-ending list of excellent reviews, I told myself that this is the right guy. I cant wait to do another project with him. I recommend hi

    The outcome was totally A++. Besides that, the process was a complete pleasure. Whenever we had an unformed notion of where the song could go, Wayne was able to take that and materialize into a defined and spot-on-trend final result. It was a fun and creatively engagement experience. Truly awesome product and process. Looking forward to the next one.
