Brad Smalling on SoundBetter

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 MFIT-approved mixing and mastering engineer, and I have one goal: to give your music the same care and attention during mixing and mastering 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 mix. What’s worse, an underwhelming 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 mix, and you deserve a creative team that’s dedicated to helping you feel that way. That’s why my goal as a mixing and 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 mixing and mastering 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.

Hear your music at its full potential - Let’s work together, today.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

    I wish this thing went up to 10 stars---because Brad deserves it. I had a problematic mix, and he did a stems master for me that sounds AMAZING! Highly recommended!

    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!

    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 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 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.
