Jim Wallis on SoundBetter

I'm an experienced producer and multi-instrumentalist who can take your song from a rough demo to a full, professional recording. I can help arrange your track, play a wide range of instruments including live drums and strings, and produce and mix it.

I work as a musician and producer out of Strongroom studio 9 in east London. The studio is based around a beautiful old Cadac desk and has a great collection of mics, outboard gear and instruments.

I play the drums, guitar, bass, keys, cello and banjo and I often work with solo artists to help them create full arrangements for their songs. As a session drummer, I've toured the world with the bands Still Corners and Modern Nature amongst others. I also really enjoy taking artists' home recordings, improving and adding to them in the studio to turn them into a full, professional production.

I'm always on the lookout for new artists to work with, so drop me a line if you're interested in working with me in any capacity.

    Jim is incredible to work with, he is such a talented musician and really makes an effort to understand successfully what it is you’re going for with your sound and turning the ideas in your head into a reality. He is very patient and happy to redo things if needed. I was lucky enough to be able to go and work with him in the studio and he is such a genuinely nice guy, he makes you feel comfortable, is so easy to chat to and really good work comes out of each session. It’s been a pleasure!

    Jim has brought my demos to life for a few years now, and I couldn't have entrusted them to a more worthy producer. He is able to take the skeleton of a song and flesh it out with a perfect understanding of references and tone. He not only delivers on what I ask for, but expands on it beautifully, with an attention to the smallest details. I owe a great deal of my development as an artist to Jim's sonic abilities and I'd recommend him without hesitation.

    Jim and I spent a couple months working collaboratively on a project of mine that I felt needed that extra attention to detail. His patience and understanding helped build a great connection and certainly helped bring my track to life. Top guy who is brilliant at what he does.

    Honestly couldn't be happier with the outcome! Jim is so precise, efficient, and the quality of his work is unparalleled. He took my songs to the next level and really cares about the music projects he works on. My favourite part of working with Jim was his communication and patience. He received all of my notes so graciously and sent me back the changes very quickly. I'll definitely be working with him every chance I can get! I would highly recommend him. Thanks so much :)

    Jim is an incredible producer and musician. He worked tirelessly on my song by both playing the instruments on the track and producing/mixing. He has incredible instincts and was not afraid to take risks and try new approaches. He is a very patient and kind person - a delight to work with. Jim is very insightful and even was able to give me a better understanding of the production process. You would be remiss to not work with him.

    I've been lucky enough to work with Jim on two tracks now, and both times he's delivered just what I was hoping for! He's quick to reply and simply great to work with. I definitely hope to work with him again in the future and can highly recommend him as a producer and instrumentalist.

    Three songs into the project and Jim deserves more than 5 stars. He is so comfortable to work with and has great input into the tunes.

    I have done two songs with JIm and find him to be easy to work with and very talented. The most important thing is that he ‘gets the song’ so the final project is everything I wanted and more. Highly recommended.
