Joe Menzies

Music Producer

Joe Menzies on SoundBetter

I am a London based songwriter, producer and mix engineer. I graduated from Leeds College of Music with a 1st class degree and have 3 years experience working in professional studios. I have worked on a variety of different projects for independent artists around the UK. I am also a professional guitarist and bass player.

My aim is to help you get the best possible sound out of your music. I always like to work closely with my clients as I feel it is important that the artist/ songwriter is very involved in the way their music is created, in order to bring their vision to life.

I have been working recently at Ten87 Studios based in London in pre production. Here I spend my time producing simple vocal tracks in huge pop songs. I have been also working as a mix and mastering engineer and have mixed many artists, bands and large scale projects.

I specialise in mostly rock and pop, however I do not shy away from any type of music. All genres are welcome! Lately I have been working on a few trap projects and i am loving the process.

My setup is simple. I do not have access to a big studio, however that hasn't stopped me in the past from making high quality music. I work in the box mostly and use many high end plugins such as UAD and Waves. I also work using a pair of PMC Result 6's which are very good monitors.

I am a guitarist at heart, so am able to track any guitar and bass when needed. I also know many people that have a good drum setup that I could use at a very low price.

If your interested in working with me, please drop me a message before buying so we can make sure you work is ready to mix!

Interview with Joe Menzies

  1. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  3. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

Something that will stand you out from other artists in the same field.

  11. Q: What's your typical work process?

  12. A: I like to sit down with my clients and discuss the initial idea of the project before getting into the production. I like to know the exact styles and influences of the work.
