Carl Restivo on SoundBetter

I produce, engineer, and mix for artists you've actually heard of. I can do the same for you- from the ground up or from a simple idea so you can SoundWAYBetter! Recent Credits: • Champion - Bishop Briggs f. Tom Morello • Lucky One - Tom Morello f. K.Flay • Vigilante Nocturno - Tom Morello f. Carl Restivo • Quiet Voices - Love Ghost

I love producing, mixing, writing, co-writing, playing some or all of the instruments on songs that need it, singing, arranging, editing, singing, ...everything!

I also love working with up-and-coming artists, bands, & songwriters. I can help you create your own signature sound to make you and your songs stand out.

I play keys, guitar, bass, drums, sing lead & background vocals and been making beats for hop-hop & pop artists for 20 years. Along the way, more and more artists became aware of what I do, and have invited me to write, produce, and (gulp) even perform with them!

Here are some people that I've written and/or produced music w/: Perry Farrell (Jane's Addiction), Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave), K.Flay, Bishop Briggs, Wyclef Jean (The Fugees), Jerry Cantrell (Alice In Chains), Nuno Bettencourt (Extreme), & more.

I've also toured and/or performed live w/: Rihanna (guitar), Jay-Z (guitar), Jason Derulo (guitar), Taio Cruz (guitar), Perry Farrell (guitar, bass, vocals), Tom Morello (guitar, bass, vocals), Jackson Browne (guitar, vocals), Slash (vocals, bass), & many more!

For TV / Movies / Video Games: I've written music, and produced / mixed songs for CBS, NBC, FOX/FX, & SONY Playstation.

I also have the distinct honor of playing all the acoustic guitars (albeit un-credited) on the Shakira / Wyclef Jean smash, "Hips Don't Lie".

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.

    It was a great experience working with Carl and the result for my song was amazing! The final master sounded great and professional. He also motivates you to have the best recordings before going to do the mix and master. It turned out sounding better than I expected and I am very happy with the result!

    I’m very impressed with Carl’s work. He’s a pro. My song was a little challenging and he nailed it and it was also a very quick turn around. I plan on working with him again in the near future.

    A. His resume of excellence should speak for itself. Let's see, Tom Morello's right-hand man? Many tracks w Perry Farrell? The Preachers Son w Wycelf too? Yes to all of the above, yet that does not tell the story of working with Carl. He is a music savant who isn't out to stroke his own ego, he partners with you in creating the best music possible. Carl has mixed and advised me on two albums and every song shines. Carl can do so much musically and he is willing to share his knowledge. Mixes are great. Producer at the highest level. Highly recommended.
