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
