Jez Burns on SoundBetter

I'm a recording engineer and TV composer with production music albums for EMI / Universal / Sony / Extreme with 25 years' experience. I specialise in mix engineering / rescue and mastering as a freelance service. Subject to Soundbetter Commission, no charge unless happy with samples. Examples of production / composition work in the description.

If you have a home recording you're struggling with, or tracks recorded in a studio you're not happy with, I might be able to help, whether it's giving them the final polish with commercial quality mastering, a complete mix overhaul or a bit of editing or vocal tuning (which I can do effectively and transparently). I work with all genres of music. From some information about your requirements, I can work out a quote for the job and ask you to send me stems (split tracks mixed from the same point), either by post on a USB stick / DVD, or online via a service like wetransfer.

    I have worked with Jez on a number of projects both as an artist (unsigned) and in a professional capacity (engineer/producer/signed band) and have always enjoyed working with him. He has an exceptional ear for eq'ing and his mixes and masters have always surpassed expectations. He has a depth of knowledge of equipment and is quick to spot mix fixes which have been invaluable to the work we have done together. Cannot recommend highly enough.

    Jez was amazing when I came to his studio to record my songs. He helped me get in contact with other musicians to work with on the tracks. He worked so hard on the arrangements and made so many improvements to my ideas. The finished product blew me away. I wouldn’t go anywhere else...

    Jez is a one-of-a-kind, mastermind producer, engineer, mixer and composer. It has been a real pleasure working with him on a number of recordings in recent years. He somehow manages to meld an inspired creative streak with a huge amount of technical knowledge and is also able to draw on a wealth of experience as a highly successful composer and musician in his own right. In my case, he has helped to coach and hone my performances inside the recording studio, bringing the very best out of me as an artist, while helping to source other session players for my recordings.

    Jez is a very skilled mixing/mastering technician and fantastic musician in his own right. He recorded, mixed and mastered my daughter Scarlett Andrews debut album and single releases, and had endless patience, gave great advice, and guided us through to the end result, which was perfect! To boot he is a really nice guy and nothing is too much trouble. I would highly recommend his expertise, and we will certainly be back again and again.

    Jez has produced both of my albums to date and I absolutely love working with him. He has the most amazing ear, endless patience and always gets the very best out of my playing. Jez understands what I am about. He knows that I am a perfectionist but a nervous recording artist and yet he manages to put me at ease with his mature, calm and gentle persistence. Jez understands the difficulties of recording classical guitar ( my instrument). A review of my first CD by Classical Guitar Magazine said "the recording is wonderfully clear and warm ...a most successful recording " (August 2013).

    I’ve known Jez for many years and can honestly say his creative approach to production has always been a source of inspiration. Throughly top bloke and a pleasure to work with!

    Had the pleasure of recording, mixing & mastering with Jez on several occasions. Most striking about him, apart from his time served sonic prowess at the desk, is his ear – remarkable natural musical talent who can hear ones own ingrained imperfections & gently guide you to bring out performances you never really knew you had in you. Oh, and a great guy to create with & hang out with to boot.
