Boundless creativity, rock-solid technical savvy and an indomitable need to please YOU!
I am a highly proficient keyboardist and engineer with a knack for beat production. Whether I create your track from scratch, arrange it, mix it or just add that extra synth part on top, you'll be getting high-grade, professional quality sounds that faithfully match industry standards. I work out of a DIY studio in Brooklyn full of terrific vintage and virtual gear. I use both Logic and Pro Tools.
I put my heart into every project I work on. There is nothing I love more than this craft.

I'm so glad I chose Alex to mix and arrange my track! He was easy to work with and made my song sound amazing! Will most definitely be working with Alex again in the future.
Alex was an absolute pleasure to work with. He has such a unique ear when it comes to music & really added that magic touch to my songs. I am incredibly excited to continue working with Alex going forward, and feel so lucky to have discovered him! Thank you!
Interview with Alex Bradford
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Carl Culley is one of my favorite vocalist/producers. His delivery is powerful, dynamic and soulful. We have worked together for over three years; his work certainly speaks for itself.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Terrace Martin, Thundercat (Steven Bruner), Cory Henry, these guys seem utterly fearless in their playing and in their production. I gravitate towards musicians who do their own thing, regardless.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: My imagination. I try to never limit myself, always keeping my mind open to new possibilities. When you approach a project this way, allow yourself to experiment and push boundaries, I find that the solutions tend to just fall in your lap.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Patience. I work meticulously, attending to every detail, which is a necessary, time-consuming process. I have the patience to bring the client's vision to fruition, and I don't stop until that is achieved.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work out of an analog/digital studio, often tracking through analog gear and editing in Pro Tools. If my client wants to track to tape, we use our 24-track for recording and then print to Pro Tools.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I work on all kinds of music, but mostly rock, alt-rock and roots rock.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Analog for tone and warmth, digital for editing, MIDI, FX etc.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on an EP for a very talented singer-songwriter, Julie Hill. We've been tracking everything to tape and it's been a blast.
