Becky Willard is a Warm Audio featured artist, a music producer, recording engineer, songwriter, composer, vocalist and mentor. She began working with artists almost 30 years ago as a vocal and songwriting coach. It was a natural transition from coach to producer as she guided singers searching for their sound and began recording them in her home studio. In 2010, Becky founded Vox Fox Studios and has become the go-to producer for many Utah artists as well as artists from all over the world. These artists go to Becky to produce their music because they know they will get their best vocal performances, modern production sounds and mixes that are “radio-ready”. As a songwriter herself and session vocalist, her songs and voice can be heard in dozens of TV Shows and movies. As a woman in a male dominated field, Becky is actively engaged in educating and inspiring young women in her community and worldwide to pursue music production and engineering.
