Greg Wells

Grammy award-winning, Canadian musician, songwriter, and record producer, Greg Wells, has been dubbed “A Swiss Army Knife” in the recording studio by the legendary Stewart Copeland for good reason.

As a multi-instrumentalist, he has the ability to artfully mold his productions with incredible precision, craftsmanship, and most importantly, taste. Combining his musicianship with his uncanny abilities as a producer, engineer, and mixer, he has seen album sales top 120 million, with streaming numbers in the billions. With a B.

His diverse list of credits includes superstars such as Adele, Dua Lipa, Twenty One Pilots, Katy Perry, Keith Urban, Celine Dion, Deftones, Kid Cudi, Weezer, OneRepublic, Ariana Grande, Pharrell Williams, Aerosmith and so many more that we would need a really long scroll bar to list them all. 

Greg has seen monumental success recently with the release of the motion picture soundtrack for “The Greatest Showman”, which he not only produced but played on as well.

I look up to this guy so much. So good to see the boundaries between to much and too little of tweaking.

Would have been great to see the comping and tuning live instead of sped through. Also, hear him explain why and how he made the decisions he did. Great video nonetheless!

One of the many things I love about this series is the way Greg and Bryce work together. Bryce came in with a very cool song -- she knew what it was about and had put it good work. It was incomplete when she first played it, but that only meant she was not overly attached. This left room for Greg to develop the bridge, and guide Bryce through the challenge of creating a second verse.

Love the way that Greg works. He keeps the session going and keeps it positive. The downbeat trick was awesome!
