Brent Barcus on SoundBetter

Mix Engineer specializing in taking a great hook-driven song and making it radio hit ready. I've worked under famed producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange and shared the stage with some of the industry’s all-time top selling acts including Shania Twain, Elton John and Kenny Loggins.

With over twenty years in the music industry as a professional mix engineer, producer and multi-instrumentalist to some of the industry’s top selling acts and brands Shania Twain, Elton John, and Kenny Loggins, I draw from a wide range of musical experiences to craft mixes in all genres, ranging from acoustic, hip hop & pop/rock.

I truly believe the collaboration aspect when mixing and recording projects is extremely important.

The price quotes are a starting point and are negotiable based on the scope of the project. I welcome working with new talented artists who are wanting to take their music to the next level.

    I have worked with Brent for years now. He is such a great resource for so many things: production ideas, getting a great sound, playing great guitar tracks, bass tracking, very strong lead and background vocal production and and then of course getting a great mix. He has it all and has been so helpful to us throughout our project. Great attitude to serve and very fast and efficient as well! I highly recommend Brent!

    I have had the wonderful chance to work with Brent in quite a few different scenarios. From one-on-one vocal sessions, to live mixing, to collaborating on our band's tracks, and even group recording; Brent consistently delivers a professional sound peppered with sophisticated musical nuances. Each time I work with Brent, I am blown away by his talents and his ideas. He is fantastic at what he does, and I will definitely be working with him again!

    Our band had been trying to record and produce our own music ourselves to mixed results. But once we handed our tracks to Brent, it was almost as if he had waved a magic wand and the tracks burst to life. Brent really brought that punchy sound we were looking for to our tracks and provided a lot of good input and musical ideas that the songs benefitted from. Excellent work! We will definitely be using his services again.
