Hi, I'm Luke Potter. I’m a UK Artist / Songwriter / Producer / Mixer / Arranger I've worked with Grammy award winners and Platinum selling producers in the UK, USA and across Scandinavia.
I have worked with world-renowned songwriters and producers & received acclaim from Grammy awards winners for my song writing, and co-written with many extremely successful songwriters including David Sneddon (Lana Del Ray, Hurts), Rob Davis (Kylie Minogue, Spiller) Bleu McCauley (OST to Disney’s Neverbeast), Toby Scott (Kaiser Chiefs, Little Mix)…
As an artist I have over 20 million Spotify streams, & been signed to major labels Sony / Ultra. I’ve done a USA tour and played the Hard Rock Cafe on Hollywood Blvd, House of Blues in Orlando and Atlantic City and The Cavern, Liverpool. I've been lucky enough to have Jörgen Elofsson (Leona Lewis, Kelly Clarkson, Westlife) as my mentor and had Johnny Wright (manager of Justin Timberlake, NSYNC, Britney Spears) be involved in my career during my time in the USA.
My production skills have been honed from sitting alongside those mentioned above and working with Ken Caillat (Fleetwood Mac) Jon Kelly (Kate Bush, Chris Rea) and Steve Power (Robbie Williams, Busted) etc. My single ‘Healing’ out on Ultra is a track produced by myself in my Studio, The Sweet Factory. Here I have been working with a broad spectrum of artists spanning the genres of Pop, Rap, dance and acoustic.
I’m looking forward to working on projects as a new member of SoundBetter. Please reach out if you want me to write/co-write a song, produce/mix your track.

Luke is a professional through and through. Even with our different time-zones, he was always communicative, fast with his responses, and readily available to chat.
He was able to take a half written demo and turn it into a song that sounds like a modern pop hit! Would definitely work with him again on future projects.
If you're looking for a professional who has his own ideas, but is more than happy to work with you on your own, this is your guy!
Wow. I am in awe of the fantastic creativity, attention to timeline, and collaborative spirit that Luke brings to each project. He elevates ideas, and I've worked with no one who is as adept at producing. I honestly have nothing but praise for his multiple talents and certainly do not have enough superlatives... A one in a million find.
Very easy to work with, lovely guy and the end result was perfection!

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

Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I work in any number of ways. I can sit and write or co-write a song on keyboards or acoustic guitar and record as we go. I can build a track around a vocal melody. I can take lyrics and write a top line. and arrange and produce. It's whatever it takes.

I'm happy to try new things and confident that I can produce great results for artists.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask to hear if they've any recordings that they've made already. I ask if they have any artists that inspire their music. I ask what their plans are for the music and where they'll be trying to get it played - the answer may well help me to develop a production style based on this.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: A number of projects including co-writing and producing an album for Jacob Browne. He's a really exciting talent and someone you're going to hear a lot more from. There is also an EP coming out soon by a Bristol duo, Suit & Tye, for which I wrote the music and produced the music.

A: Remember the song is king, everything is about making it something people want to listen to - and then listen again.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, indie pop, hip hop, trap, rap, rock, soft rock but I'm up for anything really. I listen to all types of music and study the way tracks are built.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: As a songwriter I like to think that I can visualise what makes the song work and add the right production that makes it sparkle.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm all about the song so the musicians and producers that inspire me are the ones that feel it and often just do the simple things that make it the best it can be.
