EssGee Productions on SoundBetter

I specialise in creating all-inclusive productions for music artists and visual media - I am known for producing full, punchy, clear-sounding productions. My aim is to help make your vision become a reality.

Hey, I'm Sam

I have been working with solo artists worldwide for over 20 years and helping their songs go from 'basic idea' to 'wow, that sounds awesome!'. My clients include Warner Chappell Music, 'The Voice' semi-finalists (Jeremy Levif), through to street buskers (Ben Monteith) for whom my productions have helped gain millions of streams on Spotify.

My goal is to add value to you as an artist by making your music sound amazing.

Here are some results you can expect when choosing me for your project;

- A fully recorded, beautifully mixed and mastered work, ready for release
- Access to a multi-instrument session musician (Need additional instruments and parts for the track but you're not sure how to play them? This is where I step in :-))
- Initial pre-production call (discussing and planning your project)
- An optimistic and can-do attitude toward your project

Looking forward to working with you!

    Sam has produced more than 2 albums worth of my songs! I could not ask for a nicer and more talented producer and multi-instrumentalist than him. He literally has transformed and transcended ALL the songs I have sent him or recorded with him and made them RADIO-READY and PROFESSIONAL SOUNDING. One of our tracks « Puzzle » was actually playlisted by Spotify on their editorial playlist « Pop Rock Shot » alongside major bands like Coldplay or Imagine Dragons. The proof is in the pudding as we say! Look no further! Sam is a joy to work with and will turn your songs to ear candies.

  2. Review by Danilo S.

    Sam once again delivered great sounds for my songs.
    He understands exactly the vibe of the song giving it the right sound choices.

  3. Review by Danilo S.

    Sam provide a very efficient and high quality service.
    The sound of the song requested to be fully instrumentally produced was second to none.
    I will definitely work again with Sam in the future

Interview with EssGee Productions

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I worked with a gospel music artist called Steph Macleod - my role was producer, session musician and mixing engineer. This project was a joy because Steph is such a talented artist; I had the privilege of working on his initial project ideas and building them up to become big, full soundscapes.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: I am working with a French singer/songwriter who was a semi-finalist on The Voice France. He has an excellent vocal range and some great songwriting skills.

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: Primarily digital because it just saves so much space! Partly analogue though, as they each have their strengths.

  7. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  8. A: If you are clear on your goals, I will make sure your music sounds amazing.

  9. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  10. A: The creative process and hearing the final sound come together during the mixing/mastering session.

  11. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  12. A: People often ask if I can add additional sounds/instrumentation and if everything is included such as editing/mixing/mastering. As this is all part of the experience that I provide, then the answer is yes.

  13. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  14. A: Probably underestimating the amount of work that goes into producing a finished song.

  15. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  16. A: What is your vision for the project? What sound are you aiming for? Do you have any reference tracks?

  17. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  18. A: The clearer your vision is for the outcome, the better the results will be :-)

  19. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  20. A: Gibson J45 acoustic guitar, Dictaphone, MacBook M3, SM7B, UA Apollo

  21. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  22. A: I studied music production at college when I was 16. From that point I worked a few retail and customer service jobs, then was offered a position by a local Church as a music producer, producing some albums. After a number of years I went on to independently produce music for artists as well as write my own songs and compose music for media.

  23. Q: How would you describe your style?

  24. A: Big, clear-sounding and emotive.

  25. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  26. A: I'd like to work with Jason Upton - he has the most wonderful voice and songwriting ability.

  27. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  28. A: Sometimes less is more.

  29. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  30. A: I tend to work on acoustic, pop, rock and indie.

  31. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  32. A: I am able to add multiple additional layers of instrumentation and production to song, which make the song speak and become alive.

  33. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  34. A: I help make the song reach its fullest potential. I help strengthen the overall song arrangement, dynamics and structure. This can involve aspects such as rearranging sections to make the song stronger and more confident, adding additional instrumentation, editing/re-recording parts that need to sound better.

  35. Q: What's your typical work process?

  36. A: Usually an artist will come to me and have a good idea of the sound they want in their head, but they can't quite get there with it themselves - I find out their vision, and see what they're trying to achieve through the music. What sound are they looking for? What's the feel? Are there any reference tracks they want to base their sound on? Then, if they already have a few basic ideas recorded, wether that be simply a vocal track recorded to a click, or perhaps a few instrument parts they've already recorded, I put these tracks into Logic and start to build a world of sound around them - experimenting with rhythms, chords and adding new soundscapes.

  37. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  38. A: I have a simple and focused studio setup. I work in Logic Pro and use a combination of internal and outboard equipment to produce my sound. A lot of the sound I create is based around premium sample libraries and plug-ins such as Spitfire Audio, Orchestral Tools, Universal Audio, Native Instruments, Toontrack, Mixwave, GGD. My outboard gear includes; Mac Mini UA Apollo Twin X Quad Core Fender USA Jazz Bass Aria Pro Thorsound 1980's Japanese Electric Guitar (Amazing instrument!) Martin Acoustic Guitar DAV Electronics BG-1 Microphone pre-amp SE Electronics Gemini II Valve Microphone Shure SM7B Shure SM57 Steven Slate VSX Monitoring System KRK VXT6 Monitors

  39. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  40. A: I like artists such as U2, John Mayer and Dream Theater. I also enjoy cinematic music by composers such as Hans Zimmer and James Horner.

  41. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  42. A: I primarily work with singer-songwriters and solo artists in the indie pop/rock genre.
