Riley Smith on SoundBetter

Producer, Mixer, Songwriter from Australia! Over a million-plus streams accredited to my name, with national radio play. Credits include Mirror Records, Sony Music, Lucky Number and more. With over 5 years of experience in the music industry and working with many artists over the years, I love all music and bringing the song to life!

As a producer, my main goal is the song and making it shine! I specialise in taking a simple guitar or piano part and vocal demo, then building the arrangement creating a fully produced song, listening and working on each section until its perfect.

I've had the opportunity to learn from Konstantin Kersting (Tones and I) from which, I bring that knowledge and experience to every new production I work on.

As a mix engineer, the song always comes first. A clean fresh-sounding mix is what I aim to achieve, that sounds great and punchy across all forms of playback.

I play the guitar, bass, drum kit and piano but mainly focus on music production and the programming side. Depending on what your song needs I am across all areas!

    Awesome all around. Riley mixed and mastered 2 songs beautifully, nailed the revisions we threw his way, and really left his personal creative mark on the songs too. He also was extremely responsive and easy to communicate with the whole time. A true pro.

    Riley was super clear and extremely friendly about the direction of the mix from the beginning, which made the process of mixing the song way easier on me. Payment was fast, and it was easy to stay in contact through messages. 10/10 would recommend working for, or with Riley.

    Thanks again Riley!
