I specialize in taking your vision and enhancing it to make a production that is profitable, giving you an outstanding sound from a market, where noticeability is needed to have an edge to stand out from the rest. I continue to have a high satisfactory rate because my work is done as it is unto God and I strive to work in a Spirit of Excellence.
The majority of my clients’ production is done remotely. I ask the client to hear a sample of their music via phone, Skype, or any other communications convenient, listening to their chorus, verse, or bridge if there is any. I try to get an idea of what sound they are looking for, and figure best how to make that sound profitable by making sure it withstands the test of time and that the sounds get stuck in consumers head. About halfway through the project I let the client hear what I've come up with and if they like it, I continue the process until the song is complete and they are satisfied.
I have been blessed to play bass, drums, guitar, and piano. This can give songs that live feel that sometimes separates producers from "beat makers" which is sometimes needed in Gospel/Christian music. I believe in building relationships with people to best and giving my all on each project, because for me, it is a form of ministry, and to create this kind of music, you must have a lifestyle that lines up with what you are producing.
I do offer other services such as mixing, mastering, editing, and vocal tuning. I've been a specialist in this field for over 15 years, and I love every moment.
