Artist, songwriter, producer and mixing engineer working remotely from Melbourne, Australia specialising in forward thinking pop production, songwriting and engineering. If you want to make commercially minded songs to fit on radio and global playlists, or even unique genre-pushing music to craft the sounds of tomorrow I can help get you there.
I provide professional music production, mixing and songwriting, as well as top-line and any keys parts you need. Being an artist myself I understand how important the execution of an idea is, and the emotion at the core of the song. I'll always consider how and what I can do to make a project the best version of itself it can be, so whatever stage of the record making process a client is at I can fill in the gaps. I can be as hands on or hands off as you want. My job is to give the song whatever it needs to exist in it's own unique space.
A great producer or engineer knows when to dig in heavy or get out of the way of what's already great about a song, and so prices are malleable depending on where in the songwriting or production phase you are. I'm new to SoundBetter and fresh in the industry, but am very ready to get to work.
If you're looking to make commercial music with integrity and a product you'll be proud of, let's crystallise your vision.

Interview with Brodie
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I don't go outside.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My first EP which I wrote, produced and mixed.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Anthony Kilhoffer.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital because it's faster and easier. Studio technology is at a point now where this argument is somewhat superfluous, if the technology is used with taste and skill.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To work as hard and as long as possible to get you to your strongest work you've made!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: That if you're really good, work hard and stay smart you can have a profound influence on people's lives.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What's your goals for the songs and what you're working on! Having a clear vision is super important to being able to get the results quickly that you want :)
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Hit me up! I'm always open and willing to work with whatever you have to get you to your ideal finished project. I could just program drums if that's what you need, all the way through taking a voice note and turning into a finished mixed record.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop and my ATH-M50x's. Great records have been made with less.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I feel like however you might feel about wanting to work with someone you respect, you'll never know if there's chemistry until you're working together. Sometimes you could be disappointed and sometimes incredibly surprised. The aim is to stay true to yourself and try a bunch of different things until you find your green light.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Have a reason for every part to exist in the song. Pretty sounds are easy to throw in but having intent with sonics is something I remind myself of daily.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Mainly commercially minded pop music with alternative ethos.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Making full productions.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I would hope to bring emotional and conceptual integrity whilst maintaining high fidelity production. A mix that brings height, depth and width to the song is what any decent engineer should do, but finding and communicating the essence of the artist's work using those parameters is more elusive and undeniably more compelling. I try as much as possible to attain that.
