Hi, I’m Dave O’Donnell.
I’m a London-based freelance producer / exec producer with 10+ years of audio expertise working across radio, podcast and voice projects for The Guardian and Google, BBC, The Telegraph, WeTransfer, Worldwide FM and more.
This is where I share the work I do as Sound Motives Studio, and is home to the Sound Motives podcast.
The Sound Motives Podcast is an audio documentary series about creativity and discovery.
Musicians and producers discuss their influences and inspirations within music and beyond, exploring where music meets culture.
