3 ReviewsEndorse Steve Kinney
Steve made a really great job on my song ! He also brought his own ideas to the project which proved to be a real added value. He's patient and responds promplty to requests. I definitely recommend Steve for your projects !
Steve’s vision, attention to detail and skill is everything I’ve ever wanted and looked for in a producer!
Great guitarist! He pushes himself to get the best mixes and sounds. Thank you Steve
I've worked with Steve on a number of projects! I can't say enough good things! He is a fantastic player, engineer, photographer, cinematographer... he is all things creative and killer at them, but an even better person! I'd work with Steve any day of the week, and am extremely happy with everything he's worked on!

Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been making music since I was a little kid. Working on old tape portasdudios, and old FL Studio 7. Eventually moving on to pro tools and became a gear head. Landed an internship at Ben Folds studio in Nashville. Studied under Steve Bishir. Eventually got a job like most people. Eventually, I left the corporate world for Wild West of the music world.
