Music Producer & Songwriter

Mackin Carroll on SoundBetter

Hey! My name's Mackin. I'm gonna give you something unique. If you're looking for interesting sounds and an indie sensibility to bring your track to the next level, I'm your guy~ If you want a memorable top line that doesn't sound like what's out there, I'm your guy~ If you need lyrics that get what's in your heart into a song, I'm your guy~

I studied Popular Music Performance at USC Thornton School of music, earning a BA.
I've got the gear, time, and skills to get your project to the finish line.
Production wise, I specialize in getting indie rock band sounds as well as indie songwriter stuff.
I do live sessions for songs if the style calls for it in a Venice studio with a live room, and the rest out of my home studio.
Songwriting wise, I take most influences from the Folk/Americana tradition.
I also have a knack for 60's/70's R&B/pop music when it comes to bass guitar.
For that warm sign with vibrant, Jamerson (or more modernly Joe Dart) sound, I'll give you a great bass line that supports your song and adds something interesting, playful, and foundational.
Podcast wise, I host a show and have helped develop/launch several shows in the past, so I'll be able to edit with ease to get you a great flowing conversation appropriate to the genre and a clear, full sounding conversation that people don't have to crank their car stereos to hear.
I also have a vast array of peers that I occasionally outsource do if the track calls for something particular (instrumentalists that I track).
I can also give you solid mock-up mixes so when you take things to a mixer they'll just be tightening things up and putting their shine on it~

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
