Pietown Sound on SoundBetter

I'm a Grammy nominated mixer/producer with 20+ years of experience and a ton of versatility. I have had 2 Billboard top 25 rock tracks, produced a Billboard #1 Heatseeker and got a Radio Disney #1 too. I was in the Chris Lord-Alge camp (14 years) and worked with Rodney Jerkins, Ben Grosse and others before that.

I have done everything from active rock to film score in my fully outfitted studio with everything you need to make most records. I really love making guitar tracks and have 20+ guitars, 15 amps, and about 120 pedals. I also have a baby grand piano, Hammond M3 with Leslie, Rhodes, Clav, and a synth collection. There are two recording spaces for drums so I can get a thick tight sound or a brighter large space vibe.

Mixing wise I run a hybrid system with equal amounts of analog gear to go with the plug in stuff. I can use the analog summing rig to get a console sound, go more in the box, or go in between both.

I also get a steep discount for mastering at Sterling sound due to the high volume of tracks I send them.

Production wise, I am inspired by Rob Cavallo, Blake Mills/Shawn Everett, and Ben Grosse

  1. Review by Life Looks Best (Cory Young)

    In over 25 years this is the first time a first mix sat me back in my chair and just made me grin. The first time I have heard what I've been searching for in every mix and on every track for most of my career. This mix hits hard, grooves and highlights all the hidden details of the track, while maintaining volume and warmth. Keith's mix made this track gel. He's also a decent dude! Fast, professional and caring 10/10

    Before coming to Pietown Sound, I had all of these styles in mind, Keith Armstrong helped me stay true to my heart's true style and simplified the sound I was looking for from all the styles I grew to love. Not many producers I can say will take the time to not only produce the right sound but to also be completely authentic and hardworking towards both the music and the artist's goal, a true producer. You want a producer that will give it his all? This is definitely the guy to reach out to! Thank you Keith
