Daniel Ben Jones foley artist

WHO IS dbjones?

Hi! I’m Danny. Under the name dbjones, I freelance as a Sound Artist & Recordist. From my home studio in Manchester, I combine Foley Artistry with Field Recording and Music Composition to build bespoke soundscapes that underscore the stories told by creatives.


I’ve been collaborating on projects since 2012, crafting sounds for a variety of mediums. From independent theatre productions and animations to award winning short films and documentaries.


In 2019, I became a regular collaborator with Freshrb C.I.C. A video production company based in Manchester, raising awareness for marginalised health conditions through their Silent Elephant Project short films and workshops.


More recently, I started blogging. Setting up Behind-The-Sounds, a series of blogs where I share my adventures crafting soundscapes – along with any tips and tricks that I learn along the way.


I’m always looking to collaborate and meet new people.

If you want to say hello you can find me on Instagram.

If you would like to work together, email me at danny@dbjones.co.uk or via the contact form.


Five facts about me:

  • I once ate an 8 scoop ice cream in one sitting while travelling around Tokyo. Each scoop was a different flavour (Strawberry, Coffee, Milk, Chocolate, Matcha, Banana, Grape and Ramune Soda) and they were all amazing.
  • I’m a drummer. I can noodle around on a few instruments but I love percussion. So much so that with A LOT of help from my Dad, we even managed build some of our own tuned percussion.
  • I’m a goalkeeper. I used to train with a Manchester City goalie coach before starting college. After that I didn’t play properly for years but now I’m training again weekly and playing a little 5-a-side and 11-a-side whenever I get the chance.
  • I love birdsong. I tend to be drawn to more natural sounds in general but birdsong is definitely my favourite. I’ve even started collecting bird whistles so I can make my own sounds.
  • I aim to one day have my own sausage dog. Either named Richmond or Frank (short for Frankfurter).
