Making Truthful Music.
My name is Ricardo and I'm a Producer, Mixing engineer and Multi instrumentalist.
I have produced, mixed and mastered for over 70 artists and have over 3 years of studio experience.
I play Guitar, Bass, Drums and know my way around a Piano.
Having been born and raised playing Heavy Metal and 70's Rock on my guitar, in my home studio, I developed a passion for true, unapologetic music with a raw feeling and a strong message.
As I got into music production and different genres I came to a conclusion.
CURRENT MUSIC DOESN'T HAVE TO BE BORING.
I just wanna bring some edge back into the scene. Question the approach and reinvent the feel.
Artists can reinvent their own genre and carved their name on innovation forever.
Our project will begin by having a chat to discuss goals, references, deadlines and budget. Once in agreement, I will send over a written offer as well as a detailed brief of our conversation. Upon acceptance we'll get the ball rolling and make some magic.
Thank you for checking out my profile!
