Billy Exton on SoundBetter

Lush horn arrangements, powerful creative effects and abstractly human production from the indie/electronic crossover. As a producer and saxophone player, I specialise in bringing the powerful textures of groundbreaking indie and experimental artists to your project, to emphasise the unique depth of your message.

I have a passion for developing unique new languages for my musical collaborators, with deep creative consultation, innovative studio techniques, and by pushing the capabilities of the saxophone.

I have trained with leading authorities in jazz, rock and classical music in Australia and Europe, and had mentoring from Bon Iver’s Colin Stetson and David Bowie’s Donny McCaslin in developing advanced instrumental techniques and electronic effects to create a unique voice on the saxophone for modern audiences.

“Billy’s compositions struck me as highly inventive and all had compelling elements that drew me in and made me want to hear more…
I’m so impressed with his musical vision and creativity. Billy is combining elements from across different genres into a wonderfully personal sound.”
-Donny McCaslin, saxophonist and bandleader on David Bowie’s Blackstar

I have worked on dozens of collaborations with local and international artists, both in the studio and onstage, playing alto & tenor saxophone, guitar, bass & synths. As a session musician, I can add saxophone solos, guitar, bass and synth parts, and unique soundscapes and effects to your existing material, and discuss revisions to satisfy your needs. As a producer, I can consult with you in depth to help define a vision for your new project, and create customised resources for our writing sessions, gigs, and records.

Endorse Billy Exton

    Billy has been involved with my current recording project as a consulting producer and session musician in addition to remixing two of the project's songs. I found his approach refreshing and his knowledge and innovation professional. His eye (and ears) for detail are clear and thorough, I would be more than happy to endorse his professionalism and skill set. Also, he's a really nice dude.
