Vocals are at the forefront of your song. Let's make pop.
After completing the Music Production program at the esteemed Icon Collective here in Los Angeles, I found an affinity for vocal tracking and production. There's something special about the soul and energy of a good vocal take that allows for abundant creative expression in the post-production process.
I will take your raw vocal stems (the more, the better), and mix and process them in a way that synergistically enhances the performance in the context of the accompanying production. This includes corrections for pitch and tone, application of creative effects, and placement within the mix (although a final stem-mix by a dedicated engineer is highly encouraged).
All work is done for hire. You retain all the rights unless specified otherwise.
Two (2) revisions are included in the negotiated price.
Payment is due before the delivery of final project files.

Tyler is one of the most professional people I have had the pleasure of working with. He is incredibly talented and dedicated to his craft. Every project is of excellent quality and is done by the deadline.
Very easy to work with, and gets things done in a timely manner. I have been working with him on an almost weekly basis for the past 4 months.
Interview with Tyler Anderton
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Learn the rules ad nauseam. Try to understand every single detail about how and why your favorite songs work. Then, once you have mastered the rules, throw them all out the window and create from your deepest intuition.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What's your goal with this song? What's your vision? What are some of your influences/references? Let's make suer we are on the same page from the beginning. Vocals are so unique to each artist, so I make sure to provide the individualized attention that every project deserves.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Ideally, I love getting in the studio with my clients to record their vocals with them, but services like SoundBetter have made remote work easy and effective in this time of necessity. Most often, a client will record their own vocals and send me either the Pro Tools session or a folder of organized stems. I'll either use the project they've sent, or import the vocal stems into a new project and perform all of the pitch and tone correction, creative processing, and mixing that I would normally do after or during a recording session. Clients can either comp their vocal takes before sending them to me, or send the raw takes, so I have enough material to comp and get creative with. Vocals are such a personal thing, so I try to communicate clearly each project the care it deserves.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: "Can you make me sound like *insert artist name here*?" There is a lot of magic that can be done with the tools available to today's vocal engineers. That said, there is only so much digital alteration I can do without destroying the original character and tone of your vocals. If I'm going to be unable to meet your expectations for any reason, I will contact you upfront to determine an alternate solution.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am currently focused on training my songwriting and lyricism muscles. I hope to offer topline and songwriting services in the near future.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Please, please, please label your stems and include a reference mix. Not only does this avoid a giant headache for your engineer, but it greatly reduces the chance that something crucial may be missed or misplaced in the final mix. This goes for sending stems to a mix-engineer as well.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: My greatest inspirations for songwriting and production are legends like Mike Shinoda and Finneas, each constantly pushing boundaries in their respective genres. Vocal production is such a staple in contemporary pop music that it's hard to pick favorites, but Ariana Grande and Billie Eilish are the queens of thick vocal stacks and harmony layering. On the heavier side of things, Bring Me the Horizon is consistently pushing the envelope in terms of both vocal and accompaniment production.
