A "halfway house" giving the opportunity to up and coming artists to showcase their incredible talent. A number of productions played on BBC Radio and other National Radio Stations. Music Production & Engineering Masters Graduate. Studio Owner at Bungalow Sound Studios.
I offer a service that allows artists to promote themselves online with great quality recording but without hefty studio fees.
After playing in bands for many years I have spent a lot of time on both sides of the glass, I also understand the frustration felt after finishing a great song only to be met with expenses stopping you from getting your music out to the world.
I want to build strong relationships with all of my clients with a key focus on creating a professional sound ready for anyone that needs to hear it.

Will was patient, easygoing, and delivered edits quickly. I would definitely work with him again.
Will produced several of my songs, he's intuitive, has a great ear and gets the job done quickly. He's excitable about music and an absolute pleasure to work with. I recommend him to all fellow musicians.
As a starting out musician, Will has been nothing but fantastic and helpful. He mixed my first track and made it sound presentable and professional and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.
Will was amazing! I had this big song (around 50 tracks) and gave it to him without much expectations. But, we blew me away with some early mixes! And im really excited to hear the final thing. Clear and fun communication throughout. Takes into account everything I said, all my suggestions, and did it all and more. Great initiatives also.
Whilst I’m not new to music, I have little to no understanding of the mixing/mastering process and having someone that was willing to help me understand was key. I praise Will for his unwavering professionalism and above all, his patience. This project is incredibly personal and his execution of it exceeded my expectation. He is super efficient and communicates in a timely and concise way. I highly recommend his services and I’m excited about our next project.
Will is a talented and receptive producer who has the expertise to work on a technical level, but also has the personal skills to translate the feelings and emotions you want to evoke in your song into actionable, practical points.
Working with Will on a few projects now, he is very efficient and goes that extra mile to make sure you're happy with the service you receive: plus his passion for good music is an infectious vibe to be around!
Working with Will has been great! He’s really helped me achieve a professional quality to my music. Will works efficiently and quickly, getting edits back in no time.
Looking forward to working with him again
A fantastic experience with a true professional within his field. You won’t get any better quality than this for the prices he charges.
He mixed my 7 piece psychedelic prog rock band and we’ve never sounded better!
Great mixing and mastering, fast replies and really good service. I’m very happy with how my track turned out
Top guy, top mixer and a top producer x
Top lad, great results. A very professional service
I have had three sessions with Will so far. Excellent producer and engineer. Talented songwriter. He really helped steer my songs in the direction I wanted. Top guy too! A service this good for this cheap is hard come by. Thanks a lot, mate.
I’ve had the pleasure of visiting Will’s studio, and was very impressed with the set up and the quality of his work. Would highly recommend.
Very professional service, highly recommend
I’ve worked with Will a few times and I’ve had nothing but professional service. The mixes I was sent back were amazing and I can’t wait to work with Will again.
Interview with Will Davies
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I have just started working with a little independent label so I am working on a lot of stuff for them at the moment which is generally Rock/Alternative styles.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: There are so many of my mixing idols on this platform, its very cool to be on here. Jacquire King is a huge, huge influence but there is a whole list.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: "How soon can you deliver" is a question I always get when working with clients, which is expected of course. Per mix never takes me longer than a day and a half. I usually finish it in a day, sleep on it, have a listen in the morning then send it off.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: My girlfriend once walked into my studio while I was mixing and asked "what game I was playing" nothing more to be said.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Amazing question. In order I would take my headphones, my laptop, a charger for my laptop, UA Apollo, Kensington trackball (Possibly the most important)
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I believe my vocal processing is my strongest skill.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I think I have quite a regular approach when it comes to mixing. Usually start with the drums then moving onto Bass then Guitar and Vocals. I'd say I spend most of my time on the vocals. Im pretty sure I'm echoing Greg Wells here but the Vocal is 100% THE most important element of any song/project so its vital that its right.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital for me, I understand completely why people would say analog but I just feel there is an undeniable sense of freedom when is comes to working digitally and stuff is so advanced these days that the "sound" is extremely close if not the same.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise is to always deliver on what they want and to make sure we don't stop no matter how long it takes.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I graduated with a Masters in Music Production & Engineering in 2018 and I have been doing freelance mixes since then.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I feel I bring a youthfulness to my mixing. I understand what is current and popular at the moment, I also know how to achieve it.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Taking breaks is my biggest tip... it is incredibly important to give your ears a break and to let your brain process the work you have done.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: A proud moment of mine would be when I was played on BBC Radio for the first time, the song was produced solely by myself so it was definitely a standout event.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Getting to know the people that I am working with. all of my closest friends have been met either playing on stage together or working in studios.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What does happiness and success mean in terms of this project?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I think getting to know each other before you start working together is important, get to know each other's inspirations and favourite artists, in doing this it will be easier to put across and understand ideas.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I would describe my style as a nod to 70s recording styles light compression is one of my main styles, I feel this allows the listener to be transported into the room with the artist.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work with Sam Fender, I really believe he has the potential to reignite the love for guitar music in Britain again.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on Acoustic/singer-songwriter styles of music and Rock.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: At the moment my studio setup is a modest one. I run Logic Pro X using a 2020 iMac. I record everything through a Rode NT1-A Microphone which is processed through an SSL 2+ interface which is beautiful.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Greg Wells is a huge inspiration to me, I feel that he is the most relevant engineer out there right now, he seems to have an ability to turn his hand to any sort of recording, whatever the genre which I really admire, the ability to adapt is key in this industry.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing music to a radio standard quality to ensure that artists look their best online.
