Multiplatinum mixer for U2, One Republic, Switchfoot, Cold War Kids, Jeff Goldblum and Songland.

i've mixed for U2, One Republic, Cold War Kids, Switchfoot, Meiko, Gary Jules, Inara George, & the Walk Hard Soundtrack. i've recorded Cheap Trick, Train and Billy Corgan. i bring a musical producer-minded approach to mixing, combined with an analog background and sensibility. i enjoy finding ways to bring dynamics and contrast to a medium that has an inherently limited range. i like to keep the listener engaged but not overwhelmed, never losing focus on the heart of the song at any moment. communication is key. i enjoy almost all genres of music (except polka & klezmer) and love blending things to create something new. my favorite music takes you for a ride, presenting lots of scene changes and emotional states like a good movie. good production to me juxtaposes hard and soft, wet and dry, dirty and clean, all while staying commercial, potent and relevant.

i'll try to accommodate your budget if at all possible. it never hurts to ask, let's start the open dialog. the price will revolve around how fast do you need it back and do you need extensive mix processed stems or will just the main/instrumental/tv/acapella work.

some sound examples i can not upload to the sound better player due to copyright restriction. please check bryancookmixer.com for more sound examples.

thanks for your interest, let's make some music!

    This was the second time hiring Bryan and there's a good reason for it. He's communication from start to finish is great. It just puts you at ease, knowing that your song is in the capable hands of a passionate, experienced, talented and all-round professional engineer.

    Bryan is my GO-TO and should be yours too! :)

    Bryan's mix exceeded my hopes and expectations; I am thrilled and inspired by his work. He is a seasoned and professional mixer, but, even more so, he understood my song on a deeper level and grasped my vision without much direction. His communications and updates excited me and left me with zero doubt. He met the deadline and addressed every issue I had with the song, and more! Above all, Bryan is a cool dude, an artist, and a rarity in my experience. I now consider him my top choice mixer when he is available in the future. TEN STARS.

    What can I say about Bryan? Just a truly remarkable person to work with!

    His attention to detail, fantastic communication throughout the entire process... Bryan's passion for music and want to provide the best mix possible is just undeniable.

    I truly could not have found a better person to hire and be a part of my very first track.

    If you hire Bryan, you'll not be disappointed!

    I’ve been working with Bryan since my first album in 2007. I immediately fell in love with his minimalistic mixing style and have been a long time loyal customer. He has a fast turn around and I especially like his laid back approach when things get down to the wire and stress levels are high… He's really chill and gets the job done. I highly recommend him and believe that he is by far the best mixer I have ever worked with.

    Bryan is a world class talent and phenomenal mixer . I’m fortunate to have had the pleasure of working with him on a few projects, and would highly recommend him. His attention to detail and care thats brought to every mix really brings out the best in the song and elevates it to a great place!
