Jim Hustwit

Music Producer in London

As a music producer in London I work with artists to bring their creative vision to life in the form of outstanding, professional recordings that will get the attention of music industry professionals.

I’ve been producing music for 12 years and have written for Universal, Sony/ATV and Ninja Tune. I work with singers, songwriters and bands to produce Soul, Folk, Acoustic, Indie, Funk and Alternative. (no EDM)

I work out of my recording studio in North London which is also the home of my record label. My clients benefit from my extensive knowledge of being a singer, songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist. My goal is always to create outstanding music.

Take The Next Step

If you’re reading this it’s because you have some incredible musical ideas that you were born to share with the world… and you need someone to help you do it.

You may have aspirations of signing to a major label or you may just write for fun. Either way, as a music producer in London, I can help you find your sound and turn those ideas in to professional quality recordings.

I only work with people that I genuinely believe I can help and similarly you should only work with a music producer who you feel understands you and your music. Why not get in touch and find out whether we are artistically compatible?

Work with Jim Hustwit

Music Producer in London

My recording studio is based in North London where you benefit from a comfortable place to be creative with likeminded people. Making music should always be exciting. There is more information about the studio below.

In 2010 I won the People’s Music Award for “Best Male Solo Artist” so I can write, sing and perform. I provide coaching and guidance on vocal technique and performance which are both critical to a great recording.

I get commissioned to write music for TV and Film so you can benefit from my knowledge of writing for all instruments. Some of my clients come to me with finished songs, others with just lyrics so we write the music together.

I am a multi instrumentalist and play guitar, bass, saxophone, piano, drums and percussion and often play on my clients tracks. See below for information about instruments at the studio.

I spent 8 years in marketing and I run my own record label and am happy to offer advice and guidance on all aspects as setting up as an unsigned artist including rights, royalties, marketing, PR, live performance etc.

The first stage of working with someone involves a conversation over a cup of tea or coffee. Why not get in touch and find out whether or not I’m the right fit for your project? If I don’t feel I am the right person for the job I might be able to recommend a music producer in London who is.

What they say

What Can I Help You With?

Great music is about engaging the listener emotionally and this can be done through all of the areas below:

SONGWRITING

Having spent many years writing and performing I can help with all areas of songwriting such as lyrics, melody, harmony and song structure. Songwriting is not an exact science but songs generally follow certain rules particularly if you want them to be commercially viable. There is a very fine line between art and commerce.

INSTRUMENTATION

The instrumentation you use goes a long way to defining your sound. It will influence the feel and style of your music and so it must be carefully considered. There are also creative ways to use different instruments to ensure that they are in keeping with the genre.

RECORDING

Recording is an art in itself and it varies in complexity depending on whether you are simply recording vocals in a studio or a choir in a church. I know how to record all instruments and ensembles. If it is an area with which I am not familiar I would bring in a relevant specialist.

ARRANGEMENTS

Arranging is the art of deciding which instruments do what and at what point during the song. This is in order to take the listener on a journey. It could be arranging basic band instrumentation, a brass section or even an orchestra. Either way the arrangement is critical in maximising the impact of a piece of music.

MIXING

Mixing is balancing of all the constituent parts of a piece of music so that they all sit in a distinct sonic space. It’s another key facet of creating a musical journey which emotionally engages the listener.
