Are you tired of being underwhelmed when you hear your own music? Hire an engineer who cares as much as you do. My name is Brad Smalling, an Apple Digital Masters (ADM / MFIT) approved mastering and mixing engineer, and I have one goal: to give your music the same care and attention that you gave it during the writing process.
You know better than anyone that every song you write is unique, and deserves a production just as unique. From avant-garde groups like itchy-O to down-and-dirty funk like Soulive and The New Mastersounds, I am proud to say I have amassed 13 years and more than 40 genres worth of satisfied clients from my home at Evergroove Studio. No matter what you want to sound like, I can help you get there.
I know what it’s like to be on both sides of the glass, and I understand how frustrating it is to pay hard-earned money for an underwhelming master or mix. What’s worse, an underwhelming master or mix from an engineer who is visibly dispassionate about your music.
I’m here to tell you that there is another way.
You deserve to feel excited when you receive a finished master or mix , and you deserve a creative team that’s dedicated to helping you feel that way. That’s why my goal as a mastering engineer is simple: to translate your art - not to influence it - into the biggest and fullest version of itself, across all listening platforms.
My results speak for themselves, so take a listen to the samples on your right, and hire me for a unique and personalized master/mix experience. I pride myself on quick and open communication, and providing you with a final product that you can be proud of for the rest of your life.
Let’s work together, today!

This Guy gets the job done fast! He also achieves the sound you need in the matter of hours! I would work with him again anytime 10/10.
Knocked it out the park on first attempt - super quick turnaround as well. His concise and objective feedback on the mix helped me take some key last minute decisions, and this really helped service the track. Looking forward to working with him again!
Great result, right of the bat! Could not be more happier with his master. Quick turnaround as well. Highly recommended.
Amazing mastering skills, always on time.
Brad was absolutely fabulous to work with! He truly delivered the magical sound I was looking for in the mix and master! He may be a bit more expensive than some others, but he's absolutely worth it! If you want to be certain you're getting the best possible sound, you need to go with Brad.
I came to Brad to master the first song I ever mixed by myself. I explained my concerns by stating that I felt my vocals were too loud in the mix, he gave me some tips and then assured me the mix I sent through was perfect. His turn around time was LIGHTNING FAST and the quality of the sound was industry standard. Thanks Brad!
Brad was a pleasure to work with. He gave a schedule and delivered on the day he promised. He handled a small issue professionally and resolved it quickly!! I highly recommend Brad.
This man is on point. His master of my mix was excellent.
very happy with the master. Brought dimension and clarity to the sound without losing the integrity of my headroom mix. Quick turnaround, very responsive, dedicated to his craft...will be back!
Brad is the best! He is extremely knowledgeable and skilled at what he does. I always trust him with my music. He makes the process of creating music much more painless. I can always depend on him to do great work. Thank you!

Had an awesome experience working with Brad again. Great communication and a great guy. Would work again with him anytime.
Very professional. Easy to work with. Kept the job rolling. Good ear.
Brad went above and beyond to give my song exactly what I wanted. He gave my mixes what I've always wanted to hear out of my own music. Thank you Brad!
Brad, at Evergroove, did all the mastering for my new release, Visions of You. He took a really good mix from my engineer and added the perfect touches to bring my song to the next level. Truly exquisite mastering! Besides that, he is professional, communicative, and a really nice guy. Price is right, too! Thanks so much Brad!
I came to Evergroove to record my debut EP under Celeste Rose Music and it was the most amazing and insightful experience for someone new to the studio. Brad was so welcoming to my bandmates and I and made everyone feel like they were putting out the best versions of themselves possible. And of course, Brad is just a fun guy to work with. Can't wait to be back!
Always a fantastic experience with Brad and Evergroove. His mixes and masters are killer, exactly what you want, and he’s amazing to work with all around. 10/10 would recommend highly!
Working with Brad Smalling at Evergroove studio was a fantastic experience. It was extremely professional yet personal and friendly. It was our first time working with him and at this studio, and I guarantee we will be back for our next effort. The thorough communication, attention to detail, positive responsiveness to questions, and just general willingness to do what it takes made the studio such a great choice. This is the type of environment you feel comfortable recording something personal in. Very important. Our record sounds amazing, which is so awesome, and the process was fun getting
My songs had the privilege of being shined to perfection by Brad Smalling at Evergroove Studio. I initially intended to have one person handle mixing and one mastering. After discussing the vision for my tracks and hearing samples of his work, it was obvious Brad was my audio professional. Period. This EP is the first time that upon hearing the final product I was thrilled, not disappointed to some degree. I can’t wait to work with Brad on my future projects.

Brad and the Evergroove team are true professionals in both the art and science of making music! The quality of our recordings exceeded our expectations, our project came in under budget, and we were able to release our music earlier than originally scheduled. Getting out of the city to record in the woods of Evergreen allowed us to tune out any distractions and focus on the music. Evergroove worked hard to understand our vision and provide technical expertise and advice when needed along the way to achieve that vision. We'll be back for our next recording session!
Brad was fantastic to work with on the 2018 Derek Woods Band album "From Now Until Then"! Very easy to work with and had a great sounding product in a short amount of time!
Brad is what every consultant you ever bring on for anything, should be. Fully transparent conversations, on time delivery and amazing mastering for some of my sets. It takes hours and hours to create 1-2 hour sets and while I could've tried to master these myself, it was so much easier and faster to have Brad help out. The quality of mastering is also amazing. Thanks Brad!
Evergroove, hands down, is the epitome of quality and efficiency. it was an incredible delight to work with Brad. He took very good care of our mixes, and translated them into superb masters. Bravo!
I worked with Brad when I was a sophomore at Evergreen High School. My friends and I came to Evergroove with a tune we had written. Brad was always helpful, even in the face of our naivety. He helped the drummer tune his drums, imbued us with confidence and cracked jokes to keep the energy right. The product was a sparkling piece of rock and roll.
I had the great opportunity to work with Brad on my last two singles which he mix and mastered. He has a great ear for what to tweak to bring out the best in you songs, something many engineers I've worked with have yet to develop. He is a very down to earth person to work with and knows how to incorporate your wants on top of mastering needs.
Brad has mixed 2 EPs and a full album for us. Although we are based in South Korea and he is in America he 'gets' what kind of sound we want without the need for us to be in the mix room. People always remark on the very high sound quality of our releases. Brad's easy to work with and goes way above and beyond what is necessary or expected!
Brad kicked butt recording our americana/acoustic/bluegrass album. Although all of our band members got along fine, we still had 4 different sets of ears and about twice as many opinions for how the thing should sound. Brad helped us work through the entire process and made it sound wonderful. All were pleased. Brad and Jenny make a fabulous team.
If Brad was only a phenomenal engineer, or only an expert mixing/mastering professional, he'd be among the top talents in the nation - let alone in Colorado. But he's both, and more besides: a savvy producer, a partner and coach for the recording process, and - most importantly of all - someone musicians can trust to make the most of their work.
