Sam Featherstone on SoundBetter

Extremely versatile. Love live instrumentation. Want your 'real' drums and piano to blend seamlessly with your programmed beats and soft synths then I'm your man.

I've worked with multi-platinum selling, award-winning artists across multiple genres. Rock and pop is my thing however last year I engineered, produced and mixed a UK Classical Number One album; real proof that I can work with any genre!

My background is playing in bands so I play guitar, bass, drums to a high standard and get by pretty well on keys!

I'm new to SoundBetter so you're not going to see hundreds of glowing reviews on here saying how I transformed someone's song or made their mix sound incredible. There are plenty of those quotes in my inbox though ;)

Working with me you'll get a very personalised experience. I'm not a factory, I prefer quality to quantity and will work hard to help you make your songs sound the best they can. I'll ask you about who your favourite artists are and what you want your music to sound like, that way we'll be on the same page and I can quickly get the sound you're looking for.

Every project is different, so all I ask is you get in touch and we can work out a timeframe and cost that works for both of us. If you're already 100% happy with your song's arrangement then I'll make it sound great. If you know that the 2nd verse is missing a little something extra then I'll help you find it. I'll play it, programme it, tune it, quantise it...whatever is needed to make the song shine, I'll make it happen.

    Sam is triple threat. Really great at performing, brings great ideas and also collaborates well. He leveled up my song for sure. I’d highly recommend him. I know I’ll be going back to the well.

    Sam mixed my album and it was the perfect blend of sensitivity to the material, song-improving choices and deft touches. The final results were fantastic! When working with Sam you get the triple benefit of a technical wizard, a producer's instinct and a musician's feel. Sam's the man. My go-to mixer.

Interview with Sam Featherstone

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

  2. A: It can range from a straightforward mix, up to full production. Often when I'm mixing I end up adding an additional production element that my clients love and are very appreciative that I have the skill to do that.

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

  4. A: I grew up listening to a lot of American pop-rock so love the work of producers like Neal Avron, Jerry Finn and Mark Trombino.

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: I work between my own small studio and bigger recording studios depending on the requirements of the project. I like the flexibility of working 'in the box' so I have a great collection of plugins and tools at my disposal. Aside from that I believe that good, accurate monitoring and great convertors is very important.

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

  8. A: Getting a clear, concise brief from clients is incredibly important. From there I'll listen to their references, discuss the sound they're looking to achieve and dive in. I like to make sure that the first thing I send to a client is a mix I'm very happy with, that way there aren't any caveats. A couple of rounds of mix revisions and we're usually there!

  • 84 Million StreamsJan 20, 2020

    84 Million: The number of times songs from the SIX: The Musical studio album were streamed in 2019! The show opened this week at Sydney Opera House, opens on Broadway next month and has been extended in the West End until 2021.


    Nuts to think that something I engineered, produced and mixed (with plenty of help from the show’s writers and team) is being listened to on average 400,000 times a day.

  • Classical Number One AlbumMay 24, 2019

    BLAKE - The Anniversary Album, which I engineered, mixed and produced went number one in the UK Classical Music charts.
