Great singer and easy to work with! Thanks!
I worked with George to create an emotional single for my wife's new project and what he was able to do, and the speed in which he did it was amazing. I gave him a specific reference track for inspiration, and he nailed the overall vibe and instrumentation, but created a brand new piece of music. I am a huge fan of his - Thank you George!

George did a wonderful job tuning some very tough vocal tracks. Highly recommended!!!
George was fantastic, he followed my directions clearly and we are so happy with the results. What an amazing voice :)
George is a musical genius. If you get a chance to work with him you are lucky. It is very rare to come across someone so talented at songwriting with such a mature and quality ear for production. He produced our lead single off our debut album; which may end up getting us nominated for a JUNO award this year! Thank you George! dj
Worked with George several times now, he smashes writing and singing all the time! Turnaround time is incredible. Just check out „Dancin‘“ by George Gleeson & Fabian Vangelis and you‘ll be amazed within seconds!
Totally recommended X
When I hired George, I was nervous! I had a specific vision for a song and I had never before hired a songwriter/topliner to finish something for me. Interacting with George was great - we vibed right away and he delivered top notch work, quickly. Only a couple of minor revisions, and the final product was better than I imagined. I recommend George in a heartbeat!
George is a phenomenal producer/songwriter. He's exceptional at capturing guitar and bass tones and arranging synths. His understanding of music theory and production elevates any song he works with. He's been showcased on the BBC and endorsed by international artists (i.e. La Roux). He is professional and conscientious to any music project he works with. We're lucky we could work with him!
Interview with George Gleeson
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Coming from a small town in the UK i decided at the age of 17 to move to Brighton to pursue my dream to make music. I decided the best way to find musicians was to take up a course at BIMM in music composition, and shortly after this i began releasing music with my first serious indie pop project - Aniseed Treats. Upon graduation i started up my second serious project JUNG, which had a focus around electronic pop and exploring the idea of blending classic songwriting with modern production. Then in late 2017, my latest project Twilight Driving started and we've already released a series of singles. Alongside all of this I have been busy toplining and producing for independent artists, building a home studio and growing a catalogue of songs.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Charlie Puth. I was listening to an interview with him on 'And the writer is' (which is a great podcast) and his entire songwriting/production workflow is fascinating. For instance, the guitar in "Attention" was recorded on an iPhone! I think there is a lot to be said from someone who is able to use a phone recording in a Top 40 pop record.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: This is a difficult one, but I always try to bring an honesty to each project I work on.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: This always varies client to client, but typically, I start off by asking the client for a selection of reference tracks and lyrical themes. I will get as much information as possible, and then will record some 'Sketches' to show the client to make sure i'm on the right track.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm constantly inspired by each years wave of new artists, currently i'm really into: Kendrick Lamar, Raye, Charlie XCX, Lana Del Rey, Catfish and The Bottlemen, The 1975, and Clean Cut Kid. The artists and music professionals who have been serious influences upon me have: Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Rick Rubin, The Beatles, and David Bowie.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most of the time I write lyrics and top-lines for pop, indie pop, electronic styles of music. I also write full songs for clients to release, sometimes this will be an entire production or just the chords, lyrics and melodies. It's always important to me that the client puts their own stamp on the song!
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will do my very best to get that sound in your head into a record.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Meeting and working with so many different people.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Quite a few, but a few important ones are: What's your deadline? Who are your influences? Are you using this song to pitch or release? Are you open to re-writes or are in love with the current arrangement?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be as specific about what you want as possible. When someone provides me with reference tracks, chord charts and the story behind a song, it's a perfect situation.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: A laptop, microphone, interface, keyboard and headphones. All very simple bits of gear but you can do pretty much anything with them!
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Emotive music combined with honest lyricism.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: EQ is one of the most important steps in music production! Always EQ first and do so subtractively, get your sample/stem to sound as close to finished as possible. Doing this at an early stage in your production will help your mix have clarity and speed up that final mix down.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I tend to work on pop, indie pop and indie rock; but have also completed projects focused around jazz, film, country, house and EDM.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My ability to affectively communicate with a client to achieve their vision. Before starting your project we'll chat over email or skype in detail about your influences, reference tracks, instrumentation and even vocal register to pin point the exact sound you're looking for. This doesn't only make your project sound better but they are completed faster, which is vital when working to strict deadlines.
