Brydon on SoundBetter

Alternative & Indie

I'm award winning Music Producer from New Zealand, currently based in London. I specialise in writing and production for artists and labels, scoring and sound design for film and video. I have worked with Rodney Jerkins (Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga), Wayne Miller, and many more.

I work on a case by case basis with artists and their needs / budgets.

My main project is a band called Skymachine, and is a good indication of the style and standard that I work at with my production and mix.

Interview with Brydon

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: All the latest Skymachine music that has been released I write, produce, and mix myself, and that to me is something I'm quite proud of.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: A couple of remixes, a reggaeton project, a few pop singles, and a new body of work for my project Skymachine.

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: For creating, I like both. For mixing, digital.

  7. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  8. A: I work my hardest until I'm happy with it. There's no 'hourly rate', just a dedication to getting it done as good as we can get it.

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

  10. A: Meeting amazing creative people, it's always different, and the flexibility to work on different projects.

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

  12. A: What are your goals, what are your references.

  13. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  14. A: Do your research, ask a lot of questions, and know exactly what you want.

  15. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  16. A: my strat, my acoustic, and probably nothing else.

  17. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  18. A: I've been doing this for about 10 years now. I was based in Los Angeles for a while writing for big studios, but enjoy being freelance and doing my own thing.

  19. Q: How would you describe your style?

  20. A: A 1980's Thunderbird driving through the LA streets on a Tuesday night.

  21. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  22. A: M83. I just think it would be a fun session.

  23. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  24. A: Work quickly and don't overthink things too early. There is a magic that comes when you're in the moment, and that can be killed by trying to get everything right from the get go.

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

  26. A: A lot of alt - pop, indie, and alternative music.

  27. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  28. A: Working with drums, groove, and writing strong hooks and melodies.

  29. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  30. A: Definitely a unique flavour. I don't like doing things straight ahead, and that's why artists choose to work with me.

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

  32. A: I like to get a groove first. When things feel vibey, things start to fall naturally into place. From there I like to focus on the vocal and build everything around that.

  33. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  34. A: Depending on where I'm working from, it's mainly in the box these days, although I have access to a range of outboard gear and tools. For production, I have a range of synths including a Juno 106, a vintage Strat, and some other toys.

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

  36. A: I listen to a lot of classics for inspiration in terms of composition and production. Anything that still translates today from the last 50 years you can learn a lot from. Bee Gees, M83, Beck, Whitney Houston, Kendrick Lamar, The 1975, The Naked and Famous, Tame Impala, Fleetwood Mac

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

  38. A: I do a lot of production and songwriting for artists, as well as taking a demo or basic idea and fleshing it out to a fully formed piece.
