Sean Lacefield on SoundBetter

I love what I do and I strive to make sure my work shows it. The variety of media types that I have worked on, many times allows me to have a perspective that only comes from those experiences. The ultimate goal is always to create the best sound possible.

• I am currently signed Fr8 Train Music Publishing @ Westlake Studios as a sound designer and composer. We are preparing for the launch of a brand new catalog of material for commercial use in Film, Television, Gaming and Music Production. I have written songs for placement in commercially released films and video games, such as writing the end credits song for the video game “Dead Rising” which more than 3 million copies

    I have worked with Sean for about 14 years. He is 100% dedicated to his craft. His audio quality and sound palettes are second-to-none. He is highly organized, always on point and delivers projects on (or before) the agreed deadline. Super easy to work with and communicates very well. I highly recommend Sean.

    Sean is an incredibly unique and talented songwriter! As a drummer who has rehearsed and performed many of Sean’s compositions, I have experienced firsthand the subtle nuances he has crafted. Sean has innate abilities to perfectly construct a tune in a wide array of genres.

  6. Review by Marcus H.

    Sean has a crazy ear for songwriting. He was able to get the work done in half the expected time and the quality was top notch! Highly Recommended 10/10

Interview with Sean Lacefield

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I worked on an indie film called Repo! The Genetic Opera for 8 solid months. Many of the people I worked with have become life long friends. I was able to work with people like Stephen Perkins (Janes Addiction), Ray Luzier (Korn), Tommy Clufetos (Ozzy, Alice Cooper, Black Sabbath, Ted Nugent), Sonny John Moore (Just before he became Skrillex), Yoshiki Hayashi (X Japan), Paul Sorvino (Good Fellas), Bill Mosley (House of 1000 Corpses), Sarah Brightman (Opera Singer), Shawn "Clown" Crahan (Slipknot) and there are so many more to list. This was an amazing project to be a part of, just look at the list of people I got to work with! I was hired as the sound editor but ended up doing many jobs for the film including co-producing a track with Yoshiki.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Six songs for artist and sync release.

  5. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
