Scott McDowell on SoundBetter

I’m a pretty good listener.

I’m a music producer who‘s passionate about making great records with great musicians. My goal is to create albums that sound timeless while still feeling fresh and modern. I’ve been working out of Hyde Street Studio C for over ten years, producing countless records for bay area bands from indie folk to hard rock to chill wave. I also really enjoy recording out of destination studios! I’ve had great results working in cabins, temples, and caves as well as destination studios like Panoramic in West Marin and Sonic Ranch in West Texas.

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

    Holy crap - what can you say about Scott other than "HE'S AWESOME!!" ??

    Scott cares deeply for his projects and the only thing that exceeds his experience is his talent. He has access to great resources and a bangin' studio and he is also a very nice person. Give him a shot!
