Jacob Montague on SoundBetter

I produce, record, and mix for the indie pop group Branches (40M streams on Spotify since 2015) as well as perform banjo, mandolin, and guitars with the band live. I am a multi-instrumentalist and create professional recordings both out of my home studio and other rooms around California.

Music Production, Film Composition, Song Remix, Remote Mixing, Remote Session Work on acoustic guitar, electric guitar, classical guitar, banjo, and mandolin.

My commercial film compositions span between folk instrumentation, cinematic elements, and electronic soundscapes. Some notable past clients: Honest Tea, Linkedin, Sandisk, Urban Stems, Avoya, Scociety6, International Justice Mission, 9Lives Cat Food, Gerber, 20th Century Fox, Freshly, Charity Water, Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship, Yammer, SF Gate

In addition to Branches and my film composition, I write electronic music under the alias Tsutro. With this project, I enjoy remixing others' songs as well.

Whether your need a fully produced track or film score, or simply need a banjo part recorded for your song, I deliver quality original work with a quick turnaround.

    Really gifted musician!
    His turnaround time is also perfect, will give you precisely what you've visioned. This is my first time using sound better and I really couldn't have asked for a better association. I'm pretty sure I'll work more with him.

  4. Review by Carol Kay

    Jacob is wonderfully talented and receptive to ideas. He made the process very easy and I really appreciated that as a nice change from a previous experience with another producer. Needless to say his work is excellent and deliverables were on time. Will call him again for sure.
    Thanks Jacob!

  5. Review by Ishaan R.

    Jacob is professional and extremely talented. He was able to capture the original feeling of the song and take it to another level. Highly recommend.

  6. Review by Tyler

    Jacob can do it all. As a producer AND instrumentalist, he not only has the ear for how to take your music to the next-level, but the ability to make it happen. He is gifted in every way needed to take a raw idea to a polished finished arrangement that you'll be pumped on. As a collaborator, he is even-keeled, patient, and I've never seen him hit a creative dead-end. You'll love working with him.

  7. Review by Jon Bougher

    Jacob is a very talented composer with the ability to adapt easily to any project need. We used him on a bunch of projects last year and recommended him to other production companies. Highly recommended for projects of all shapes and sizes!

  8. Review by Ezra Teshome

    Jacob is a talented multi instrumentalist with a kind heart. He’s recorded, mixed and mastered music for me at incredible quality and speed. I’m very thankful for his services and I hope to use his talents again soon.

  9. Review by Natalie Nicoles

    Jacob is the best! He’s easy to work with and I don’t think there has been something he’s made that I haven’t liked. He always comes up with new sounds just when I think I’ve heard them all and I’m consistently blown away by his talent! Such a no brainer to work with jake!

  10. Review by Kyle Teese

    I’ve worked with Jacob on about a dozen different sessions and every time it’s been a stellar experience. He has a track record of finding the right tones and getting great takes when when he’s behind the board. And as a collaborator / co-producer, he has a knack for writing parts that bring a song to completion. I highly recommend him!

  11. Review by Jay Salbert

    I've worked with Jacob a number of times and there's a clear reason why. He's both an immensely talented composer and a wonderful person to work with. He always does an outstanding job and makes the process easy. He's one of my favorite collaborators.

  12. Review by Justin A Dent

    Working with Jacob was a professional and successful experience, he composed three tracks for three different videos simultaneously and made it easy for me to communicate with him as a non-musician. I'd absolutely recommend working with Jacob!

  13. Review by Corey Martin

    Jacob is a frequent collaborator and exceptionally talented and unique composer and producer. His work will always elevate any project.
