Producer and engineer with over 10 years of experience who loves to vibe with artists remote and in-person. Credits include Converse, ESPN and more.
If making music were like basketball, the music producer’s the point guard: my job is to get you the ball (the song) exactly where you (the star player) want it to make it as easy for you as possible. Every artist is different in their own way and creates their art from the contexts surrounding them, and I like bringing that into production the most. You grew up listening to Panic! at the Disco, make hip-hop music, but listen to a lot of J-Pop in your spare time? Let’s throw it all together. Making alternative indie but grew up in the church? Let’s try throwing a Hammond B3 in there, see how it works. I believe in a story-first approach: if the production is great but it doesn’t fit the story, it’s back to the drawing board.
I specialize in taking a vocal demo, guitar or piano riff and creating a fully produced arrangement. I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to learn from Grammy-award winning engineers and producers (and being in the room with great artists), and I bring that knowledge and experience to every new production and mix.
I approach mixing similar to how I approach production: story (and hence, song) first. I like mixing vocals to be upfront and center with instruments supporting them, giving each song its own space and ambience.

Jalen was a pleasure to work with. Very thorough in his process and works with your vision every step of the way.
Wow. Jalen and I just wrapped up song 2 of 4 off my upcoming project and our work flow just keeps getting better and better. It feels so good as an artist when your producer/engineer is able to understand your vision and translate those thing to your track. He's phenomenal and I can't wait to tackle 3 of 4.
Wow, wow, wow. I try not to make declarative statements like this, but working with Jalen has been the most positive experience I've ever had with a producer/engineer. From the brainstorming all the way to final master, Jalen has been on top of everything. First and foremost, his production is crazy!!! But his attention to detail and ability to understand what you want is the real game changer. I cannot recommend him enough. I came to him for a single but now we are doing a whole project!!
Jalen has been one of my biggest co-producers on a variety of records. His knowledge on production, music theory, mixing, mastering and the songwriting process are all extremely valuable. The man is an absolute beast!
Jalen is far & away one of the best producers I've ever worked with. We've worked together on a variety of projects, and he has proven time and time again not only to be an unbelievably versatile musician, but an incredibly gifted mix/master engineer as well. Even though I'm convinced he's the smartest guy in the room anywhere he goes, Jalen is always extremely professional, humble, and easy to talk to. I cannot recommend him highly enough for any project you can think to throw at him!
One of a kind producer. Produces and mixes at such a high level - doesn’t matter what you throw at him, he has it down. Jalen’s work ethic is insane, he’s super down-to-earth, and he’s got a nice sense of humor too!
