Hello, I'm Will, a London based sound engineer. I've been on tour with Dermot Kennedy as his Front of House engineer for the last 3 years. I've also recorded and mixed the majority of his live videos as well some non album releases. Now that live concerts are on indefinite pause, I'm keen to get back mixing from my home studio.
Previous to working with Dermot, I've toured with artists such as DJ Shadow, Josef Salvat, Nimmo, Cuckoolander, Charli XCX and Shy Luv.
However I am not just a live engineer!
I have previously worked for Miloco, at studios such as The Pool, Livingston, The Engine Room and The Bridge, working with major label artists and world renowned producers including Florence and the Machine, Tom Odell, Bloc Party, Roots Manuva, James Ford and Charlie Hugall.
Prior to this I spent a long stint at Smokehouse Studios including working on "Biz Sessions" with artists such as Leona Lewis, Grizzly Bear, Folks, The Midnight Beast, Spector, The Milk, Ben Montague, Simone Felice, Olly Murs, Lawson, The Enemy, CoverDrive, StooShe, Keane, Chiddy Bang, Dry the River, Band of Skulls, The 2 Bears, Youngman & Ren Harvieau.
I've written articles for console and interface manufacturer Audient:
Now that I have some down time form touring, I'm keen to work with new artists and bring that little bit extra to your songs. Rates are negotiable.
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

Will has been a key member of our crew since the very beginning of my touring career. His attitude has always been the same, from crowds of 200 up to 20,000. He doesn't need to up his game for the bigger shows, because no matter how big or small, he always approaches everything with total professionalism and commitment. Whether he's mixing a show, live videos, or official releases, I have come to trust him completely, and his commitment to quality has become something I can rely on. His work ethic and level of dedication have played an integral role in getting my career to where it is today.
