500 albums and counting...

Allow me to introduce myself…

I am a music mixer, engineer, producer, and musician, credited on 500 albums - nearly 400 on vinyl and CD, plus more than 100 full length concert videos.
 
I am based in Los Angeles where I freelance in local studios, but I have mix clients worldwide--mixing for artists in 8 countries on 3 continents in just the past 12 months! In addition to my studio recordings, I am a post-production mixer for concert festival videos, and I have produced and engineered music for more than 30 stage productions. My longtime membership in the Recording Academy (The Grammys) was recently rewarded with a Lifetime Membership.

Some career highlights:

Studio Recordings: Sting (for PBS), Backstreet Boys, Take 6, Cheryl Bentyne, David Hasselhoff, Brian Bromberg, Dan Siegel, Najee, Andrew Neu Big Band, Jane Lynch, Bobby Kimball, Quatrosound, Rahsaan Patterson, MCulture.

Concert Mixes: Ne-Yo, Christina Perri, Jessie J, Herbie Hancock, Robin Thicke, John Legend, Morgan James, David Foster, Babyface, Chris Botti, Boney James, Bobby McFerrin, Natalie Cole, Mayer Hawthorne, India Arie, Erykah Badu.

Many of my concert videos are on YouTube at the Java Jazz Festival channel. My mixes are credited at the end. Some foreign releases are not available in the US or on AllMusic. MCulture (Romania) is available credited on YouTube.

I look forward to working with you!

  1. Review by Emiel van Egdom

    Typical LA pro, but than at the top end....
    Amazing ears, fast, can travel, reads music beyond expectation, just kiddin'.
    A consumate professional who lives for music.
    My albums, no, even better, my music, sounds better because of him...
    Interesting detail, not often encountered, he did spend a lot of time and energy to crawl into my ears, my soul ánd my music to find out what it is that I am looking for in my recordings... That's how we did build a lasting personal ánd professional relationship that will last forever.... Dark Fader, the Man! On to the next project!

    Tom is amazing! Since he worked on our first CD , the European fusion Band "Time Design" in 93/94, he has worked on many CD's since and everything he puts his hands on turns to "Gold". Currently he is working on the third CD of the "Crane & Fabian Project" and it's always a no brainer, you just KNOW: here we go, another GREAT sounding CD! Can't wait for more. Tom is the guy you can trust blindly.

    Tom really cares about the artist, and breathes life into anything you throw at him. He can take a flat sounding track and turn it into a living, breathing, dynamic listening experience.

    Tom is certainly among the top engineers in the business. He recorded mixed, and mastered my latest CD “Originals”. I have nothing but the best things to say about Tom.
