Hello, I'm Will, an accomplished live Front of House and studio record & mix engineer. I have toured globally, mixing in venues such as Radio City, Wembley Arena and Foro Sol, as well as recording and mixing for major label releases for artists like Dermot Kennedy.
I have been working as a sound engineer in some capacity since the age of 16, studying in Birmingham and then honed my craft in venues across London, including Oslo, the Garage and Heaven before moving into touring with artists including DJ Shadow, Josef Salvat and Nimmo.
Throughout this time I built up my studio recording and mixing skills at The Smokehouse Studios and later with Miloco. Here I worked with renowned engineers and producers such as James Ford, Charlie Hugall, Dan Moyler, Dan Grech and projects by artists including Bloc Party, Florence and the Machine, Tom Odell, Roots Manuva, Jax Jones and Perfume Genius.
Since 2017 I have been Front of House engineer for Dermot Kennedy.

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.
