Hey, I'm Brando Walker a London based producer/songwriter with his own studio in the heart of Soho. Past credits include Pixie Lott, Paloma Faith, Toni Romiti, Izzy Bizu & XamVolo to name a few. I am the type of producer that can play everything needed to get your track to a radio-ready polished product. I am also a Mixing/Mastering Engineer.
Who am I?
I started my career in the mid-2000s recording indie bands in different studios around the UK, but by the end of the decade, I decided to turn my attention to making more soulful records. I have a love for all pop music but I would say soulful R&B is where I tend to get the bulk of my work. I continue to work closely with labels such as RCA, Decca, Universal and have close connections to some of the best Jazz musicians in the country (I am based in Soho so am surrounded by them on a daily basis), so if you need amazing horn players I can definitely sort you out.
How I work.
I am an extremely fast worker and pride myself on wasting as little time as possible while maintaining the attention to detail that high-quality tracks/products need. I can work remotely or you are more than welcome to join me in the studio so we can work together face to face I really don't mind.
My usual turn around on projects is between 1-3 days depending on the project, that includes 10 track revisions (but am willing to extend this within reason).
I am a fun-loving guy who is working in the industry he loves, and just wants to work with like-minded people and create some bloody good music!
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you think we would work well together I work with artists big and small if you're up for making some interesting I'm in!

Brando is extremely talented at what he does (which is basically everything) and an absolute delight to work with! He’s always bringing the most creative ideas to the table and making my songs have such an edge. The first time I went to the studio it felt like I’d worked with him before, he really knows how to bounce off people’s energy and just create the most dynamic tunes. Would recommend him to anyone! Whether you’re a beginner or more advanced in the game, he can definitely provide what you need.
Brando really captured my vision for my upcoming single "Can't Provide" which he produced fully and mixed. When I was observing how he went about starting a project from scratch, I was completely amazed at the intricacy, creativity and attention to Minor details he showed, and he is so humble about what he can do as a producer/singer-songwriter. Once I realized his strong ability I immediately thought everything I put into this was worth it and couldn't wait to get back in the studio with him. He is really an asset to the music industry and young artists like myself.

Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Prince, Michael Jackson, David Bowie, J Dilla
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio is in the heart of Soho. Being in London us producers have to be quite creative with the space we have so I tend to use a mixture of analog gear and save space with high-quality digital equivalents where necessary. My most prized gear highlights consist of a Neumann U87 and my Adam A7X monitors.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I like to think I bring a fresh soulful vibe to tracks that are lacking in that human element but still keep that radio-ready sound all artists require.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My versatility & also my ear for a hook.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been working professionally in the music industry since 2006.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be openminded music is a collaborative process.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: "He's a producer" I'm much more than that. ;)
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: A mixture, because I believe that is where the unique sounds lie.
