At the heart of my projects stands a deep love for genuine and heartfelt music. My productions join organic and electronic elements together, with a cinematic and often melancholic character. In the end it's about telling a story in the best way possible.
A double graduate from two conservatories, trained as a classical guitarist and arranger, I have worked on many sides of the music scene, in just as many different genres ranging from pop to classical music. For more than twelve years I have been playing on numerous stages and arranging and producing for numerous artists and orchestra's.
I have studied and recorded at the world famous Wisseloord Studio’s near Amsterdam where I am signed and work as a songwriter and producer with Wisseloord / BMG Publishing.
During my years working with I have gained a vast network of professional musicians I can add to a production if needed.

I had a great experience working with Ward. He was friendly and clearly communicated his needs for the project. The revision process was a breeze, thanks to Ward's detailed notes. His feedback was positive and easy to understand. All in all, he made my job easy, and I hope to work with him again!
Ward is such an amazing musician, songwriter and producer to work with! I've worked with him on several projects and continue to work with him now. He is very talented and thoughtful, always making sure he's understood your ideas so he can best bring them to life, and also adding his own flair to tracks that you might not have thought of! He is enthusiastic and participates in the creativity from start to finish - from writing to recording and producing then mixing - Ward's the man!
Great to work with Ward! He's a good listener for me as an artist. The sounds/vibes I want for the tracks, Ward can create it fast and just the way I like. Apart from that he's a great musician as well. And you can always laugh with him!:)
Amazing to work with this guy! Always took the time to get to the full potential of the song and to find the right identity in each production. I love how he’s not afraid to reconsider choices or new ideas I had throughout the process. It’s a breath of fresh air to work with someone who always replies quickly and communicates this well.
He has a great ear for harmonies, he’s a real musician and I definitely would recommend recording the vocals with him too.
Overall a great producer, great communication and musician.
Ward is an incredible producer. I worked with him on several tracks. He manages to create exactly the right vibe and sounds a track needs.
