Jax is a wonderful producer with a clear vision of his work! He is truly one of the most talented writers I've come across, and he's such a joy to work with. I'd recommend him to anyone!
It was a real pleasure to work with Jax. He was very easy to deal with, very creative, responsive and patient throughout the process. As for the final result, the sound was top notch and really exciting to listen to. All in all, he's a great talent and a true professional!

It was great working with Jax, a very talented songwriter and producer. He was very professional and a clear communicator.
Been working with Jax on multiple projects for a couple of months and the final pieces never fail to amaze me. With my most recent solo track Jax was able to take my song idea and produce and develop everything exactly the way I imagined it. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone and can't wait to work with him again.

A: That I will give you 100% of my time, attention and abilities on your project
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love how every project is a journey and there is never a same outcome form project to project!
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How do you work so quickly is the main one... I always say organisation is everything when it comes to efficiency! I think this is for both parties as well! Well labeled stems are sooo appreciated when loading them into a new project!!!
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That music professionals should work for fun as it is a fun thing to do... We work long hours, have spent many many years learning our skills and have bills like everyone else man!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: The best way to get a great start is to answer the following: - Usually a couple of reference tracks are extremely helpful! - Where do you see the track going is it a single, album track etc. - What is the narrative of the song (if any)
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: My advice is if your looking for someone who you really want to understand your music and give it the most potential possible of becoming successful on a budget, and not someone who just see's it as another pay check then work with someone like myself!
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Apple Mac, Audio Interface (of some kind) Gibson Hummingbird Acoustic Guitar, Neumann 87 mic, Alesis VI61 Midi Keyboard
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started out as a Singer/Songwriter for numerous Rock/Pop bands. Touring around the UK and Europe playing venues and festivals and supporting some big names at the time. I found a love for music production soon afterwards as I loved how I didn't need to be in a band to create the songs I was writing. I've been working in music for over a decade now but still have sooo much I want to achieve!
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I would describe myself as a laid back easy going sort of guy. But when it comes to work I am the complete opposite! I like to get things done and I don't really rest until they are!
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work with Zedd! He is an outstanding producer/writer/DJ etc and he just has the cleanest sounding mixes!! I would definitely learn a lot!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: EQ your reverbs and delays!!!! Really does lead to a better overall production and mix!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: My main genres are Pop, Deep House and EDM. But i can produce Pop/RnB styles as well!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I never really like to answer this question but if I had to say overall its creating catchy melodies. Whether thats within songwriting or production, I can't enjoy a track if it doesn't have a strong hook within it!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I think I bring a strong creative dynamic to a songs production. Most of my clients are always saying to me "It's amazing how you did that as I never would have thought to do that or put that in there" which Is a great feeling when you hear this!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My typical work process is to digest the project at hand and really try to understand what it is the client wants and then figuring out what needs to be added or subtracted from the overall (Usually a demo). This leads to trial and error meaning trying new ideas/parts/structures to a track. Then finally once that is complete it is about shaping the track into something the client and myself have discussed and enhancing the overall vision and executing it professionally!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a small studio set. I work with an Imac using Logic Pro x. I'm a huge fan of Nexus 3 and Sylenth Vst's (many other's also but they are my go to) I have an Apogee Duet 2 I use as my Audio Interface and I have KRK Rokit 5's as well as Yamaha HS7's studio monitors. I also have some great mixing plugins like all Waves, FabFilter, Izotope etc
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm a huge fan of Max Martin! I love the whole concept of being an overall creative and collaborating with other talented musicians and helping to shape projects for the better and watching the process of them grow into something very exciting! I think Max Martin has definitely inspired me to never be comfortable with your first idea!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common type of work I do for my clients is overall enhancement of production. A lot of artists reach out to me looking for a way to improve their own ideas whether that be a total overhaul of the production of the track or taking their demo and enhancing it to the next level.
