Hi, I’m Brad Smalling, and my story’s a simple one: I’m all about making the best recordings that my clients have ever heard.
Still reading? Good. Because that’s what you can expect from me – commitment and passion – and I’m looking for the same from the bands and recording artists I work with. That’s why I’m also committed to talking through your goals and objectives up front, before we ever hit the studio, so that I can understand your work, your vision, and your objectives. I want to hear more than that, though. I want to hear your prior recordings, and I want to understand what you loved (and didn’t love) about them. I want to hear albums and recordings by other artists that have inspired you and your project.
Frankly, I want to hear it all. And I want you to hear it all, too. That’s why I keep my recording clients updated at every stage of the recording, mixing and mastering process. That includes a secure, live remote streaming service provided at no extra charge, so you can literally listen to the entire process of your recordings being mixed and mastered.
I’ve worked with artists in a broad variety of genres for over a decade in Colorado’s best solar-powered recording facility. They’ve walked in with full hearts, and walked out with full ears, and I’d love to do the same for you.
Let’s make something remarkable together.

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 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.
