An artist at heart, I'm a producer and mix engineer who sees a song through the lens of a vocalist and frontman. Classic Artistic integrity with a contemporary edge are the hallmarks of my work. I strongly believe that the most important job of any music production specialist should be to get out of the way of the song.
I have always found the most exciting part of every project is the creative space where dry tracks become cohesive, exciting, and compelling works of art. The same feeling of childlike excitement that you get when you finish writing a great song should apply to crossing the finish line of producing one.
As a producer and mix engineer, I've cut my teeth working with a variety of genres from Gospel, Hip-Hop and Trap, Singer-Songwriter, Rock, and Pop artists. Sonically, I tend to lean toward music that has a classic integrity, but thoroughly enjoy a great pop banger. Music today is quickly becoming a melting pot that combines elements from all over the map. i believe my background enables me to be incredibly effective in this environment.
As a Singer/Songwriter and Artist, I'm a trained and refined vocalist with a sound often compared to artists like Shawn Mendez, Jason Mraz, James Taylor, Charlie Puth, and James Arthur. (Tenor, with a very full low range as well). My guitar work also benefits from my artist background, with a style congruent with artists like John Mayer, Ed Sheeran, not to mention a host of pop-rock influences.
I work on entire projects, specific tasks within them, or any arrangement therein. My specialty productionwise definitely leans toward vocals, but I have experience producing, mixing and mastering most genres across the entire track.

2 ReviewsEndorse Adam Sickler
Adam has a keen ability to hear and understand what the artist wants, but also has a great musical mind that you will want to listen to as much as he listens to you. He has produced all eleven songs for my duo, Late Night Thoughts, and has become an integral part of our sound. While we started with an acoustic sound in our first EP he helped us expand that to a much bigger soundscape in our subsequent releases thanks to his creativity and willingness to experiment. From sound engineering to vocal editing to mixing and mastering, Adam has established himself as a master in music production.
Adam has produced the past 3 out of 4 of my singles (and played, sang, and Co-wrote on some of them as well.) As an indie artist who is both opinionated and indecisive, I can say Adam has been consistently patient and open-minded about new ideas, and has lots of creative ideas of his own when I’m at a loss! Whatever you need, he can get it done.
