As a young producer and engineer, with the credentials to back it up, I am acutely aware of what the industry trends are, and what record labels and radio stations are looking for in upcoming music. As a signed artist myself, I can help apply what I know to your sound.
I am a graduate of Berklee College of Music with a dual major in Electronic Music Production & Sound Design, as well as Music Business. I specialize in contemporary production and engineering with an emphasis in making music that is practical and ready for radio.
In March of 2019, my career took off by signing my debut single to Black Hole Recordings. Since then, I have seen tremendous and continued success with my music and enjoy taking what I know from inside the industry, and applying it to the music that I produce/mix for others.
Before going full-time freelance to free up time for my career as an artist, I was working for the multi-platinum selling rapper Twista as his studio manager and audio engineer at the age of 22.
Dance, Pop, and Hip-Hop music are my specialties in regards to genre. I also put an extra effort into vocal processing and ensuring that vocals shine the way that they are meant to. I can assure you that your art will sound and feel the way it deserves to.
I will go above and beyond to ensure that you are happy with the final result of your project.

4 ReviewsEndorse Jarod Glawe
We worked together for a few weeks back and forth with my production idea. Jarod was not only patient, but extremely creative, and it shows! I was very unsure of why my productions were not sounding as good as my favorite artists and radio tracks, but after working together, I not only feel like I am at the level I wanted to be at, but he also helped teach me what I could do better on my own in the future!
My mix sounds great. My track was delivered on time, and I thought the price was really great. I am looking forward to the next mix.
I actually have used Jarod in the past as a ghost producer when he had a personal site for work, but am now working with him here since his move to sound better for both production work, as well as mixing. I originally wanted to work with him because of his credits working with larger EDM artists who I actually look up to. He always is professional, and rarely have I ever even needed revisions from his work, but when I do he is always fast and eager to help make adjustments.
I do not normally leave reviews, but I want to thank Jarod so much for giving me a mix/master beyond what I had even hoped for! Ontop of that, he finished the final mix before the anticipated delivery time. It was very important for me to work with someone with who I could go "back and forth" during the mixing stage because I am picky with what I am looking for in my tracks (I am a pop singer). Jarod was happy to even hop on a phone call, send me multiple demos and revisions, and just seemed genuinely passionate about ensuring my song was at the highest quality possible. I will be coming back!
Interview with Jarod Glawe
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I always love this question, I really don't think that there is much of a debate here. Analog DOES sound better, but at what cost? Digital is much cheaper, easier to use, and accessible. I like to say Analog is 10% better, but 10x the cost! I run a hybrid setup, I have my favorite pieces of analog gear so they are accessible for an "as needed" basis, but use mostly digital plug-ins on the majority of tracks.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise that you will be happy with your record by the time we have wrapped up your project. If you are not happy, I am not happy, so I will always continue to work until I know you are overjoyed with the final product!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love working for myself/clients. I have always been a very independent person, so being able to work with a schedule of my choosing, and creating music all day is a dream come true. If you are able to make a living doing anything music-related, it is a special achievement.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I am not strictly a producer and/or audio engineer. I like to do everything! From songwriting to mastering, I can do anything needed regarding songs. I am a one-stop shop! That being said, I can do anything individually as well, if you need me to just master your song, I can do that.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I like to as clients about their inspirations, favorite artists, top tracks they are listening to right now, and what their goals are!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I just would like you to have a good idea of what you are looking for. The more details you can provide me, the better the end product will be! It is hard to imagine what you are hearing in your head, so providing your vision to me helps ensure I create your vision accurately.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: This is a really long story. I will try to provide a short version- I grew up playing the clarinet amongst other instruments from grade school- senior in high school. I went to college for an accounting degree thinking I wanted nothing to do with music. About 1 month into college I had a realization that I do not want to work at a desk job and look at numbers all day. Money does not make you happy. I ended up transferring to Berklee College of Music and eventually finishing my degree online. During that time, I worked privately with a platinum selling record producer who is now a dear friend. I learned the ropes of the industry and worked a few internships as well. The last internship I worked was at a stellar studio in Chicago, and I ended up being there while we worked on G Herbo's platinum selling album PTSD. Around that same time I landed a deal with Black Hole Recordings as an electronic artist. I shortly got a gig working as an audio engineer and studio manager for Twista, and rode that out until I went freelance! Now I am working my way up as an artist myself, while helping other artists as well!I am only 23 at the time of writing this! Hope the story continues to grow :)
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Relevant, slick, Top40, bright, etc.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Reference reference reference. Don't copy, but see what others are doing that is successful, and figure out what they have that you don't. Take inspiration from the greats, and find a way to twist that into your own unique sound.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, hip-hop, and EDM/Dance.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My ears, and knowledge of multiple DAWS in and out.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Experience yet I am still young and know what the industry is looking for. I will make sure the song is not only great, but marketable and relevant to the marketplace.
