Mike Thomas on SoundBetter

Mike Thomas is a audio engineer and producer based out of Kelowna, BC. He has been producing, mixing and mastering a variety of genres for over the last 10 years.

Music has always been my greatest passion. I started playing guitar over 15 years ago with a few local bands, learning drums, bass, and keyboards along the way. In 2001, I started getting my hands into the recording studio side of things. In 2004, I studied at the Center for Arts & Technology in Kelowna, BC, achieving my Bachelor of Recording Arts. Here I broadened my skills in recording techniques, mixing, mastering, producing, restoration, MIDI and post production.

I can bring out the magic in your tracks, achieving a balanced mix with a radio-ready polished sound.
