Brandon Tong on SoundBetter

Hello : ) I have 10+ years of writing sappy lyrics, recording, and producing songs. I've worked for a range of different artists and currently write & record in a band called "Couch Prints" (featured on Fresh Finds, Bedroom Pop, and David Dean Burkhart), and would love to help you create lush, beautiful, heartfelt songs of your own.

In addition to writing I also enjoy:


My main styles are electronica, indie, and synth pop, though I have a deep love for trap, cloud rap, and country

    Brandon is a very talented and fun producer who always listens and takes his time hearing out your artistic vision. Brandon created a perfect soundscape for what I was after and I'm thrilled with the project :)

  2. Review by Taylor F.

    This is my third time working with Brandon — this time on three different tracks. I'm really happy with how they turned out, he really brings a demo to life.

  3. Review by Taylor F.

    This is my second time working with Brandon and I love the work he did on the track. He knows his stuff! And he went above and beyond to get the sound where I wanted it and then some, suggesting new ideas that enhanced the track and made it stronger. He's a great collaborator. Definitely hire Brandon for mixing and production needs.

    Once again, Brandon proved why he's the go-to engineer for me. The patience and persistence he has to get your mix where it needs to be is amazing. Another phenomenal mix, and I will be working again with him for sure!

    Working with Brandon was so smooth! He mixed and mastered my song and it sounds exactly like I had in my mind :) I highly recommend.

  16. Review by Matthew L.

    LOST FOR WORDS! Brandon transformed what i sent into something very sonically beautiful. He understood every single inquiry and sent back what once was an ok song.. into a BOP.

  17. Review by Adrian S.

    This is my second time working with Brandon. The energy hasn’t faded. Very consistent and a great mind to work with. I have a few more songs that need mixing and I’ll definitely be asking Brandon to help me, you should too but please wait until I’m done ;)

  18. Review by Molly Johnston

    Working with Brandon is always super easy! He’s an insanely talented musician and mixing engineer. Very satisfied with the track we made together!!

  19. Review by Adrian S.

    Brandon is the band member you cannot find in your hometown. If you're having trouble dialing in a song or seeing the full scope of your song, I believe Brandon is that person with great energy and know-how you're looking to work with.

    In the short time we worked together Brandon gave detailed feedback, showed me new music for influences, and dedicated more time than I could ask for.

  20. Review by adam g.

    Brandon is fantastic. He has a great ear for melodies & production that feel effortless. He helped with a few bedroom pop songs & working on more as we speak. highly recommend!

Interview with Brandon Tong

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: both! analog is awesome for better workflow, but digital is awesome for quickly getting ideas down and not being broke

  3. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  4. A: that musicians "blow up" - of course there are exceptions, but most people have just been doing it for a long long loooong time

  5. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  6. A: besides the business oriented questions (release date, budget, credits), i mostly want to know your references, and what space in music you want to create

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

  8. A: ive been doing recording stuff for over 10 years, initially just to have silly songs to share with my friends (LOVED lonely island in 8th grade), and eventually as a way to get more personal stuff out on paper. now, it's just that all encompassing thing i do because it's fun and i feel confident sharing that stuff with other people.

  9. Q: How would you describe your style?

  10. A: immense, lush, heavenly

  11. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  12. A: Oklou, just the most amazing voice and production style out there rn. seems like a nice person too

  13. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  14. A: listen to your references! break down songs that you love and try to recreate them

  15. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  16. A: pop, dance, indie, experimental

  17. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  18. A: writing about trite, mundane things in a beautiful way

  19. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  20. A: i (like everyone else) have a very unique perspective on music: i grew up with southern trap in my birthplace of San Antonio, and eventually became obsessed with synth and dance music. someplace between these two seemingly distinct worlds i found a sound to share with people

  21. Q: What's your typical work process?

  22. A: just have to stay in a state of play until something sounds cool enough to move forward, the rest is easy.

  23. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  24. A: too many to count! though I've consistently drawn from The Knife, Aphex Twin, Kanye, Beach House, and Yung Lean over my life

  25. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  26. A: i hate blanket terms, but love synth pop :) i have a keen ear for immense soundscapes using electronic instruments, so generally i am using that ear to take a client's track from an idea to a commercially viable product through production or mixing

  27. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  28. A: ask as many questions as you need!

  29. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
