Double platinum certified music producer by Norwegian standards. 18 million streams + on Spotify. Henry is currently working with Norway's most talented songwriters and singers. With over 12 years of music production ,6 years of pro-Dj'ing and 20 years of musical experience, Henry is ready to take on your next project.
I offer my services as a music producer, mixing engineer and i also do remixing & editing.
Over the years, i have been mostly producing Pop, EDM and Hip Hop.
Before i started with music production, i played the trumpet for 8 years, and been playing everything from Hayden Trumpet Concerto to Jaco Pastorius - The Chicken. When i produce and compose, it's always without a keyboard at hand. I got the whole arrangement in my head and can lay down a decent produced idea within a couple of hours by pianoroll in my daw.
I have alot of different influences, which make me agile and versatile. My musical mind is commercial wierd, so i like to make catchy songs.
In 2020 i produced the Norwegian song that was most streamed over the summer. The song Bølgen - Er Ikke Verre reached number one on the Norwegian Spotify charts and has over 12 million streams.

Interview with Henry Land
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I am really proud of the remix i did for B.o.B, which i did in my Bedroom.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Right now i'm working on my album, and i am collaborating with some really good songwriters, topliners and artists.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Mickey Shiloh, we brought her onboard as a songwriter for my Song Body Language with Thea Leora. Mickey is fantastic, really good.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Analog gear tend to bring natural saturation, which adds harmonics to the source that sounds really good. I love to mix in the box, because then i can mix at home and in my studio.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love to create. The process makes me happy
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I might tell people that i recorded, produced and made this song in 4-6 hours. But it took me 12 years to get there.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Do you have any references ? How do you like your vocals tuned? Do you want the vocals to be upfront? What is your vision?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be very specific of what you want. I need to understand your vision.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Trumpet, Piano, Sennheiser MK4, Computer with my DAW and vsts and my soundcard.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I'm actually doing Masters in Business with major in Logistics, Operation and SCM. Music is very subjective. I am really good at studying, so i have been studying alot of music producers and their productions in my spare time.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I am pretty versatile. I can produce alot of different styles.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I think it would be so cool to work with Lizzo. I'm a real fan of Good as Hell. That song is so cool.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: If you want your mix to be loud, punchy and fat, you need to use a combination volume automation, EQ, compression, saturation and distortion. Volume is the absoulte best equalizer you have at hand. Many tend to use a limiter to make the track sound loud, but when it's turned down by normalizing, it might not sound as good anymore. Find a great mixed track , then use a LUF meter to check out the dynamics. You want your track to sound as good or better when you compare the two tracks at the same level.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, EDM and Hip Hop.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My hearing. If i have my daw , i don't need a piano to compose a song. The chords and melodies are in my mind, and i know well how to do lay the idea down fast.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Excitement, musicality, melodies, lyrics, arrangement.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When i get a musical idea, i try to lay i down as quickly as possible. If i don't like the result after 1-2 hours, the initial idea is not good enough. When i work with clients, i like to hear their vision and references so i can see if i am able to deliver what they want before i start out.

A: I have two studio setups, 1 at home and i also rent a studio at Stealth Music Publishing. Known artists that have been recording at Stealth Music Publishing : Tayla Parx, Marcus & Martinus, Madcon, Chris Medina
