Remote Mixing & Mastering

James Kenyon on SoundBetter

I will mix and/or master you tracks to sound great on all streaming platforms and physical media. Additionally, I can offer audio editing services such as, but not limited to, drum comping, vocal comping and vocal tuning.

My name is James Kenyon and I have five years mixing and mastering experience at a semi-professional level. I am currently in my final year of university at BIMM Manchester studying Music Production. This is where I have learnt the majority of my skills. The genres I am most suited to working in are indie and rock but I have done work in all other genres. I am predominantly a mixing engineer who does some audio engineering in the studios around Manchester but I am currently trying to do more mastering work to expand my portfolio.
