Hi - I'd love to work on your project. I play dobro, banjo, pedal steel, guitar, mando and bass to a very high standard. People say that I have a knack of understanding what's needed in a track in order to give it some missing SPARKLE!
I'm a guitarist, musician and recording engineer with 30+ years of experience in the field. I produce pedal steel, dobro, banjo, mandolin, electric and acoustic guitar, bass and drum tracks for clients all over the world. I can supply single instrument tracks or fully mastered radio ready productions. I'm happy to record a bespoke sample track to your track before you commit to buy anything so you have nothing to lose. I release all commercial rights of the music that I produce to my clients. My aim is to exceed your expectations by many, many miles! You can trust me to take your music to the next level. Drop me a line!

Interview with Tobias Wilson Music Ltd
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: 44 years of performing and recording experience.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: In most cases I will ask my clients to send me a track to work with so that I can prepare a free sample for them. I will transcribe the song (using Nashville notation) then spend a while going through the brief and working out where the 'killer cadence' spots are. I usually deliver more than the client asks for with dobro, pedal steel, acoustic & electric guitars, drums and bass.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I use a MacPro hooked into an Apogee interface and Sennheiser, Shure and AKG mics. My freelance business depends totally upon a roomful of sweet, high quality instruments. Taylor, Martin, Dobro & Gretsch acoustics, Fender & Ibanez electrics, Deering Vega banjos and GFI pedal steel. The most important part of my studio is my knowledge of mic placement for my particular instruments.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: For dobro it would have to be Mike Witcher or Jerry Douglas. For pedal steel it would certainly be Paul Franklin. For guitar it would be David Rawlins.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: In the majority of cases I am adding a country sparkle to my clients songs using dobro, pedal steel, mandolin or guitar. I will sometimes assist clients with arrangements and composition.
