Kevin Brennan on SoundBetter

I am a Producer and Mixing / Mastering Engineer. I have over 15 years experience working with a number of different artists across a variety of genres, gaining experience and enjoying the journey along the way! I treat each project with the care and detail it deserves.

Music has always been my true passion. I grew up playing and making music, before I went on to embark on a career in studio production. I spent a few amazing years in Windmill Lane studios, home to U2. With many great bands, producers and artists coming through I learnt lots of tips, tricks and secrets from the pros. That special time also taught me about the power of a good work ethic and nurturing creativity and vision to create the best work possible.
Since then I have been working for over 10 years in the music Industry and have gained a lot of experience in working with a variety of artists.

I offer production, composition, mixing and mastering services.

Let's talk about your project, and how we could work together to achieve the vision.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

    We had the pleasure of working with Kevin on our debut single release. He was attentive, responsive and gave us fantastic input and advice throughout the process.

    Kevin is very talented and was amazing to work with for mixing/mastering! He truly listens to what you're looking for and knows how to take the sound you have in your head and make it a reality. On top of that, he made several suggestions for my song that made a huge positive difference in the final product. I couldn't be happier and highly recommend working with Kevin!

    I first approached Kevin as I was having trouble getting my productions over the finish line. I wasn't sure what to expect but after working together for some time now its safe to say I was really impressed! Kevin really listens to your vision and how you want to achieve your goals and brings you there. He does not impose his own ideas of how your sound should be but instead guides you to where you want to go based on your needs while offering constructive help and advice along the way. Kevin is easy to work with because he makes production/mixing a fun process while getting the job done.

    Kevin is my go-to sound producer. We used to work on T.V. and music, most recently it's podcasts and government events. Whatever the setting, the sound is superbly crisp and I get a super professional finished product.

    I have worked with Kevin on various projects for nearly 6 years now and have thoroughly enjoyed doing so. He gets very involved in the piece you bring to him as well as you as an artist and really thinks about how to get the best out of you. He is always enthusiastic about trying new and/or difficult things and knows how keep things simple when they need to be too. He's also not afraid to just tell you when simple is better! Many times I've been blown away by a relatively strange idea that turns out to be exactly what the song needed too, from compositional notes to mixing.

Interview with Kevin Brennan

  1. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  2. A: I feel its my ability to listen and try my best to understand to what every client wants.

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: I primarily work out of my studio, a fully equipped and treated room. I particularly like working on final mixes in my own studio as I know the sound of the room and the speakers well. With production and recording projects I use other studios depending on the clients needs.

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

  6. A: I just try to find out exactly what they are looking for and how I can help with that.

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

  8. A: I started my music path making my own music and playing in bands when I was young. I went on to study sound engineering, then I studied music Production at Windmill Lane Studios in Ireland. Since then I have worked in a number of studios as well as my own here in Ireland with a variety of clients. I have been professionally working in sound and music for 8 years now.

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

  10. A: The most common type of work I do is production, arrangement, mixing, editing, creating instrumental parts.

  11. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  12. A: It depends on the project, and what the reason for going analogue or digital may be. Most of what I do is digital, I can achieve a very convincing analogue sound through digital means in most scenarios, though there are certain times where its best to stay analouge, such as in the case of certain synthesizers and recording to tape for example.

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

  14. A: I am working on a range of projects at the moment, with a few different artists and organisations, as well as on my own personal projects.

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

  16. A: No client I work with is any more or less important to me, I give the creative vision of each client the same level of respect and will always do my best to create something special.

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

  18. A: The excitement of creating something me and the client are proud of really drives me. I also enjoy the challenge of problem solving and creatively finding solutions. There is such a great feeling at the end of a project when you know that you have given it your best and created something special and unique.

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

  20. A: I have been a musician since I was young, and I have worked on many different projects across different genres, each time learning something new. I have made it my ambition to understand how to craft and shape sound to achieve the results I am looking for.

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

  22. A: My typical work process involves getting the best idea I can of what the client is looking for, then through revisions narrowing it down to the final piece of work.
