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!

Tell me about your project and how I can help, through the 'Contact' button above.

Interview with Tobias Wilson Music Ltd

What do you bring to a song?
44 years of performing and recording experience.
What's your typical work process?
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.
Tell us about your studio setup.
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.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
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.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
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.
