Elliot James on SoundBetter

Hi-Fidelity Radio Ready + Spotify/AppleMusic Ready — Love working on new genre blends + unique sounds Years of garage bands and indie tours accumulated to Hey Monday’s signing to Columbia Records tours with Fall Out Boy, 50 Cent, and All American Rejects. Founder of Blossöm Records in Hollywood, Cali.

I've spent most of my life in recording studios and touring around the world. I consider these experiences immeasurable in their contributions to my work and process. Many of my mentors and industry friends were heroes first. I'm super grateful for all the wisdom and knowledge that's been passed on to me and is evident in my work.

I love mastering music and helping artists get that final piece to their sound they've always been desperate for. I know from being a musician first the difference a quality master can make to a release, and how necessary it can be when getting your music out to fan, stores, radio, tv broadcasts and record labels.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    Every mix we send to him comes back to us sounding like we mixed and mastered in the most lavish studio out there. Just goes to show you that your ear is more important than gear. Elliot’s ear is on point! He’s a pro!

    Having Elliot master my EP was an absolute honor. He genuinely cares about the content you send his way and is more than open to work until you're more than happy with the final product which doesn't take long when you're working with someone as talented as he is. My first time working with Elliot but I promise that it is not the last.

    Elliot is so reliable, we've now used him 3 times in the last month. Big thank you Elliot for caring enough to help us with our project and our ridiculous changes we needed done. You're mastering skills and care for what we wanted was honestly THE BEST. A huge thank you again.
