Dominic Johnson on SoundBetter

London based songwriter and musician

I am a songwriter and musician based in London, writing about a variety of subjects - from the sombre to the political, and specialising in Folk and Indie music, but open to a wide range of genres. My own songs have been played on national radio stations such as BBC 6 Music. I have a home studio and so can record parts at home either to demonstrate songwriting, or if you are in need of a guitar, bass, male vocal or banjo part, I can record these to a very high standard.

I play acoustic guitar, (specialising in fingerpicking, but I am a very versatile player) electric guitar, banjo, bass guitar and I am a male singer with a warm, deep voice, and I am available for session work remotely or in person in London (possibly further afield if added expenses can be covered).

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    This was my project on SoundBetter. Dom really helped me capture the vibe I was hoping for. He is super helpful and turn around time was awesome. I'll definitely be working with Dom again.

    Dominic is a very great songwriter and partner to work with! His work is great. He kept letting me know how the project was going along the way. I had a very short period of time for him to turn in the project and he didn't even make it, he make it days early.
    Overall, the work is excellent and a very responsible partner!

Interview with Dominic Johnson

  1. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  2. A: Being able to shape something up from scratch, and creating something an artist is truly happy with and proud of.

  3. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  4. A: What kind of music they like, what style they're looking for, what the song is really about or should be about (if its not clear from what they give me in the first place) so that I can really bring all those things out.

  5. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  6. A: This varies hugely. Most things that come through SoundBetter have a poppy element to them, but I've worked on everything from adult contemporary to country, from folk to club anthems and rock!

  7. Q: What's your typical work process?

  8. A: Of course it depends on what's to be done! I'll make sure to communicate with the artist or producer as much as possible, and really get clear what they're looking for. Once I have a fair bit of work, but just before it's finished, I'll often send this over to have them look at it, get a feel for if the style is right for them etc. If it is, great, I'll finish up, record a demo if necessary, and give it a bit of a mix and send this over as completed work. If not, I'll ask for feedback on how I can change things, and make those changes.

  9. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  10. A: Perhaps most prominently, the fantastic Chris Wood, a songwriter whose lyrics straddle the gap between being folky and also being entirely contemporary, while at the same time brimming with emotion - and with beautiful guitar accompaniment too. And of course on top of that, there are the obvious masters - Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Kinks - Shangri La is, in my opinion, probably the greatest song ever written, with all those sections interwoven seamlessly together with a lyric that perfectly describes the alienation and angst that suburban life can bring.

  11. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  12. A: Most things I do include an element of songwriting, either lyrics or music, or sometimes both.
