Another great job by Roger :)
Rogers is a great producer, turned my rought songs into amazing Demos! Did all the instrumentation and vocal arrangement. He is a super patient producer that listens to your ideas carefully and communicates any thoughts in a timely manner. I cant wait to keep him as my producer for my next songs!!
Thanks a lot for the hard work Roger!!
Roger once again executed on my vision perfectly! I can't wait to work with him again.
Roger produced an amazing track for me with exactly the feel I wanted. He was so enthusiastic, encouraging and professional and I felt very comfortable sharing my ideas with him.
Roger was BRILLIANT! He took a few rough demos I recorded on my phone and turned them into something amazing. I was blown away by his talent and ability to execute on my vision with only minimal direction. He was also extremely professional and patient. I can't wait to work with him again. Highly, highly recommend.
Roger was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process. He was incredibly responsive which is one of the main reasons I selected him for the project. He took my feedback and was able to turn the ideas into art in a fast and talented way. He hummed lyrics and wrote the song based on the beat he created. He was patient as I took awhile to record final vocals and then was able to engineer the vocals and add auto tune in exactly the right places. The song turned out better than I expected! A++++
Roger is and awesome producer/multi-instrumentalist, he has patience and listens to your ideas and add his professional musical work. He made and excellent Demo out of my simple tracks. He gets the job done no matter how many changes you do. Awesome work Roger, I hope to keep working with you as my producer for many songs!
All the best
very professional,patient and excellent guitar player.
Very good to work with, on time and patient, roger tried to meet all the needs
Very good to work with, nice and patient, try to solve problems together, try to think of the client, and the change he made each time could meet your expectation, very good experience!
Roger was great to work with. I needed a variety of backing tracks to develop a demo I was working on and he delivered a wide range of options for me to pick from. His response time was really quick too.
Roger is an extremely creative artist and producer. He is also a very talented and skilled musician which I think added to the quality and complexity of the track he produced for me. He is very passionate about music and production and that comes through in his work and also all interactions with him. He works tirelessly to try and get you what you want. He also has very quick turnaround times which is a rare quality to find in a producer.
Roger is an outstanding producer/musician !! He was very diligent and respectful of my songs and had them done well before the due date! He is very accommodating to your liking .. Fantastic guy to work with
Roger was wonderful to work with, he is very diligint and is very respectful. He delivers first-class standard and I highly recommend Roger! He was a pleasure to work with
Roger, yet again, was fantastic to work with. He delivered well before any expected deadlines and made revisions to his work as per my request as soon as I made them. I can speak highly enough of Roger and Roger's work. Roger is excellent at communicating which makes him very good to work with, and I am truly grateful for the assistance he has given me.
To anyone looking for a song to be written, I highly recommend Roger.
Roger was amazing. I had some technical difficulties on my end, which delayed our project for several weeks, but after they were sorted - Roger worked very quickly to deliver the products that I needed, and 2 days before the deadline! If any one want a good producer to help them out, I cannot speak highly enough of Roger. He made adjustments where necessary, and always had my interests at priority when it came to this project.
Roger was amazing, and I cant wait for our next project!
I bless God for the amazing talent this man has got. I have just finished the second job with him and it has been quick and on the point for my next son you will never feel far away when working with Roger.
Roger was very professional, listed well, and delivered a great result from very sketchy beginnings.
I'll definitely work with Roger again.
Another fine piece of production from Roger...as always ready to deliver, patient and understanding throughout the whole process.
We had a couple of badly recorded tracks on the song this time which I couldn't redo myself yet I still wanted to keep the song. Roger worked out how to get those tracks sounding great. The final production is now good enough to upload online. Yeah!
Roger has been one of the best talented, generous and humble person I’ve ever worked with. His craft in producing has been absolutely top class and being in the other side of the world I always felt this has been a great and pructive I’m right there on his studio
Thank you again Roger.
Roger was amazing to work with. He took on feedback with no problems and did so promptly and efficiently. Roger was able to encompass all of the my needs of the piece with ease.
Roger was always nice and willing to compromise.
He produced an amazing song which I am truly proud to play. It will be going on my social media.
Thank you very much Roger for your fantastic work!
Working with Roger again has been a pleasure and a great success! His arrangement and production of my song have exceeded my expectations yet again! The quality of his work is second to none and I totally recommend Roger to work on whatever music project you may have. A true professional!
Roger knew exactly in which direction to take a song of mine for maximum appeal and delivered a superb production! He is a very talented and clever musician who will go that extra mile to make things happen for you! This was the second time I have worked with him and look forward to many more! First class!
Roger turned my song into a professional sounding commercial track. He is a fantastic producer and musician who will get the job done to the highest standard. I will definitely be booking Roger to work on other tracks of mine in the near future! Highly recommended!
Roger integrated / edited a superb mix of my song through his talented mixing, mastering, and musical skills. I just wish he were in my band!!!
I asked Roger to cut down a track in length for me as I was struggling. As soon as I heard the new song arrangement, I knew that my song had improved and that it would appeal to a wider audience.
I am very happy with the results and will be making a request for Roger to produce the song.
With Roger you are getting the full package. Not only does he produce excellently, he is well prepared to assist in song arrangement and added effects.
Highly recommended and a great guy that knows all genres of music inside out
Roger is an incredible songwriter, mixer, and collaborator. He is very detail-oriented, patient, and open-minded throughout your creative endeavor while delivering high quality songs in a speedy amount of time. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a professional and fun experience!
Roger will get the job done.
Communication was easy even though I live on the other side of the world! He delivers what you request whilst always prepared to provide advice if you ever need. Ready for next one...!
This is the third set of beats Roger and I have collaborated on. As with the earlier projects it’s been great working with Roger. He is professional, polite, prompt and out delivers so you can’t ask for much more than that!
This is the second project Roger and I have worked on. He is polite, professional and prompt. I can strongly recommend him from my experience!
Working with Roger has been a pleasure. He listens, clarifies, suggests and then executes seamlessly. No sooner did we complete the first project ( a series of beats for a new song) then we began on the next and most importantly of all he is a friendly and very approachable professional.
Roger gets the job done quickly and professionally. He knows this business inside out and I'm looking forward to working with him again...
Roger really did an amazing job. I asked him to layer a few background vocals for me, yet he went out of his way to add a few extra harmonies, make everything blend in perfectly with the instrumental and main vocals, and ensure that the correct pitch was maintained without me even asking. Roger truly understands music and knows how to achieve the quality and sound you are looking for. I highly recommend working with Roger on your next project if you want excellent quality music. Thank you Roger!
Roger is truly incredible. Not only is he extremely detail-oriented and musically inclined, but he is patient and really takes into account every change/edit you want made to the song. He does all of this with such a positive attitude and is extremely good with time, getting everything done well within the requested time frame. I would highly recommend anyone who wants a professional and clean song to work with Roger. Thank you for all your help Roger!
Hard working, dedicated and quick turn around when discussing ideas. Roger is a pleasure to work with, this is our second song with him.
Roger is great to work with and he very quickly got on the same page which was great. Highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a Producer who can deliver the goods in a timely fashion.

Roger did some excellent classical guitar for a track i'm working on, the quality of work and communication was equally great. Would highly recommend, and would definitely work with Roger again.
Roger was very patient and diligent in ensuring that perfection was attained. Whenever I requested or suggested a change or modification, he was willing to execute with joy and gladness. The aforementioned attributes are rare in today's music industry and therefore distinguish Roger Gamon as priceless!
Roger very easy to communicate with understood my musical direction lovely to have him onboard
Roger is an excellent finger style guitarist
Roger was tasked to give some piano options for a track I was working on for a client. He delivered multiple styles with a very quick turnaround and the end client is delighted with his work. Would definitely use again on other projects.

Roger instills his great musical soul in my songs.
Roger is a very talented, versatile and creative musician.
Roger is a very talented songwriter and musician, his guitar and piano playing really are very impressive.
From my first listening to Roger's evocative, yearning and atmospheric track for the Nepal cause I was hooked and felt compelled to play on it. The reaction was such that I was able to create seemingly effortlessly on it and my first attempt made the finished product. Thank you Roger & I very much hope to work on more music together in the future.
Roger has an all-too rare combination of talent and versatility alongside absolute reliability and integrity. He is someone who will listen carefully to your musical ideas and input and only offer musical and production ideas which complement and enhance your own vision.

Roger is a very talented, versatile and creative musician. From the experience of collaborating with him on a number of songs, I know the incredible passion and commitment he gives to the varied musical projects he undertakes.
I have really enjoyed working with Roger on some of his own songs as well as my own. Both his guitar and keyboard skills are superb. He achieves wonderful and enchanting results with ease when playing guitar and swaps effortlessly between styles. Talented and a great guy to work with.
Roger is a very accomplished guitarist and keyboard player. I have worked with him on many musical collaborations over the years and am constantly in awe of his calm manner, creative ambition and professionalism.
Interview with Roger Gamon
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: 'Do I play the instrument - or just use samples'? (Answer: yes I play different kinds of guitar, bass and piano - I also programme drums and use high quality sample libraries for e.g. strings, brass etc as required by the project).
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I think as a multi-instrumentalist producer clients don't always realise that I can provide pretty much most instrumentation - I play guitar, bass, piano, keyboards, synths etc - as well as the recording, mixing and mastering. I offer a 'one-stop shop' service if that's what's required.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Mainly around what they would like the track to sound like, broadly-speaking.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been writing songs and recording for over 25 years (and playing guitar and piano longer than that). I learnt so much about recording & producing from my musical colleague Howard Nock who is an ace Recording Engineer/Sound Supervisor on many top shows here in the UK. Whilst I'm mostly studio-based, I'm also a classical guitarist and play at weddings and events around the UK.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: 'Multi-style'! I am curious about all kinds of music. When not in the studio I play classical guitar at weddings and events here in the UK. But in the studio I'm just as likely to be working on an EDM track as I am a guitar-based song.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Having used tape recorders early on in my recordings, I find that digital recordings can sometimes be a little harsh-sounding. So I find that using a tape emulation plugin can work wonders. My favourite is Slate's Virtual Tape Machine (VTM) - it's fantastic!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Depends on the project - I may write and produce the music from scratch, or alternatively work around for example a vocal performance - adding drums, guitar, bass, piano, synths as required.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: In terms of guitars, I play analogue instruments (I'm also a classical guitarist who plays at weddings and events across the UK). Otherwise I pretty much work 'in the box', as they say, these days. Software instruments and production software are absolutely fantastic these days - I have no desire to go back to tape machines!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Maybe just listen to one of my 4 sample showreels and look at my SoundBetter reviews. Have wide-ranging and eclectic tastes in music and my production I think reflect that - I really love to work in may different genres.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a collection of classical guitars (I also play classical guitar at weddings and events in the UK), acoustic guitars and basses, condenser and dynamic microphones, a small midi keyboard as well as a high-spec Yamaha Clavinova, a MacBook pro attached to a 27 inch screen, focusrite interface, Genelec monitors and AKG headphones. I use many synths such as Omnisphere 2, Kontakt libraries, many waves, Slate and other plugins. I work in Pro Tools and Reason DAWs.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will do everything I can to ensure you get you the track that you need.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I really love to create tracks for people - I find it really rewarding to be able to apply the skills I've learnt over the years - together with avid listening to so many genres - to help create a bespoke track for the client.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: As well as musical versatility, I would say my strongest skill is being able to play by ear - and through experience being able to think through ideas regarding a song's structure, harmonies and melodies. However, these ideas may not necessarily accord with the client’s vision of the song/project - so I'm interested ultimately in ensuring that the client is happy!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I've been involved in music since I was a child. I've been producing music for over 25 years. I bring this experience to the all the songs I help create.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I create all kinds of music: pop, rock, classical, jazz, hip hop, trap, EDM on classical, acoustic and electric guitar. I love the creative challenge of working on original music; using my experience to think what style and approach will work best. I'm a classical, rock and pop guitarist and also have played/keyboards piano since I was a boy. Most commonly I will use all these skills to build up a track within Pro Tools and/or Reason.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, rock, beats - hiphop, trap and EDM and orchestral. My musical tastes are quite varied!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: In terms of music - I have eclectic tastes. I grew up listening to a lot of classical and choral music, so rich in melody and harmony. In my teens I migrated to the Beatles and all kinds of pop and rock music - again particulary attracted to songs with strong melodies. In terms of guitarists - there are so many I love but they include George Harrison, Clapton, many of the jazz guitar greats, and in particular John McLaughlin (I worked on a Nepal Earthquake charity single with John's drummer and keyboardist Gary Husband a couple of years ago which was fantastic). And the wonderful brazilian guitarist Baden Powell de Aquino. In terms of production, I've been fortunate to collaborate closely with Howard Nock, ace sound engineer/designer for many TV productions. My Protools skills were learnt through these collaborations, which included some music made for Channel 4 (actually my work for this was as a keyboardist). In terms of other inspirational producers; George Martin, Daniel Lanois, Phil Ramone amongst many others.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I would highly recommend Howsaudio - a remarkable musician & mixer: https://soundbetter.com/profiles/49620-howsaudio
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Adele, of course!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Projects include an atmospheric beat made with organic ethnic instruments for a client, an EDM track and a piano and strings arrangement for a beautiful tune written by a client. One of my most recent projects was creating an EDM version of a wonderful track written by Oscar and Grammy winner Carole Bayer Sager and singer-songwriter Jonas Myrin
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I'm really proud of the collaboration between myself and fellow Voysey songwriting/production colleagues on the 'Dreaming of you this Christmas’ single *. I wrote the music, some of the words (with John Garvey), played and recorded the piano and the guitar parts. Howard Nock (sound engineer for many TV productions) played bass guitar and we also worked together to produce choirs and brass bands (courtesy of Omisphere and Native Instruments respectively). I travelled to Wales to record the female vocals (the fantastic Victoria Worthington). Howard mixed and mastered the single. I liaised with ace graphic artist Martin Orme regarding the single’s artwork. I suppose, as well as the musical/lyric input I was the project manager for this single which was a real collaborative effort involving some face to face work together with remote file-sharing. If you get a minute to listen, I think it’s fair to say that all the disparate parts work pretty well together (thanks in no small part to Howard’s excellent mixing and mastering). *https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/dreaming-you-this-christmas/id743204058
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My Takamine classical guitar; assuming electricity a Sadowsky semi-acoustic electric guitar; a Neumann KM184 condenser microphone (matched pair If permitted!) and my MacBookPro. And a great reverb plugin or hardware (like a lot of musicians I love the 'sound' of music - the acoustics reflecting where it was recorded, and the ability of modern reverb units and plugins to emulate this).
