Music Production Services



UKCountryRadio.com encourages artists to seek out the highest production standards when recording their work. You can have the best songs, the best vocal delivery and the best musicians - but poor quality recordings can let your whole project down. We have teamed up with the following three producers to offer excellent high quality production and promotion deals.

Super Pro Production And Promotion Package

If you are really serious about your country music career and want to stand a chance of making it big, then this is the deal for you.

Justin Johnson grew up in a recording studio near Seattle, spent nine years based in Nashville and touring the world and playing on albums as a session drummer. he has been a full-time record producer since 2004. Justin moved to the UK with his British wife in 2010 and has been working with some of the top up and coming artists of the country music scene. Justin brings with him the secrets of Nashville music production - meaning it's now possible to produce an album of equal quality here in the UK - benefiting the UK music industry and avoiding costly flights and accomodation involved in using production facilities in Nashville.

Recording is usually done at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool, where the likes of Coldplay and John Mayer have recorded. Tracking through a Neve board to 2" tape, it cannot get any better.  Justin is a big fan of tracking in the old style of getting a bunch of real musicians in the studio at the same time... recording on real pianos, organs, rhodes, drums etc.  "Making your music to a quality that will stand the test of time".
