The song finisher. I make the song grow on the listener that they usually forget the number of times its been on repeat. Appealing sound that stays relevant.
I am a songwriter who is a trained engineer and producer. I give a song what it needs. I also advise on song arrangements sometimes creating sections that the song needs.And I am also very good at comping and tuning vocals. If I cant fix it, its not worth fixing. I also mix for other producers, enhancing their music.
I interpret songs in the mix. Sometimes I create special effects, using interesting elements within the song to give it a signature sound.
