I have years of experience writing and recording indie pop, singer-songwriter, and folk music. I am here to help you put out a radio-quality track with the sound you want.
I'm a multi-instrumentalist musician, songwriter, and mixing engineer from Austin, Texas. I can help you create a great track by writing and recording acoustic/electric guitar, piano, keys, backup vocals, and writing lyrics.
If you have a simple demo and need it to be filled out with lush instrumentation, mixed, and mastered, I can do that! Alternatively, if you just need certain instruments recorded or just have it mixed/mastered, I can also do that.
If you would like to hear my writing style, simply look up "Tiny Dolphin" on any streaming platform. If you would like to hear my mixing/mastering, listen to the playlist on this page under the "more samples" section, or just reach out to me and ask to hear my most recent work!

Alex was awesome to work with! He helped me record a very special song to me. He produced a cover song for the first dance at my wedding. He went above and beyond and worked closely with me to get it just right! Super talented sound engineer, but also an awesome musician as well! Highly recommend. He was super easy to talk with and open to ideas. If you want to work with a professional, he's your guy.
Working with Alex was just like being in the studio!, we took different approaches and built something really incredible. Alex has such a voice and also ears, as he listens and shapes youre thoughts to something that just works so so well and sounds beautiful. Thanks Alex, Pleasure!!
Alex has been amazing to work with, he was super attentive to every detail and helped me get my song to the best version it could be!
Alex provided beautiful fingerpicked guitar tracks for my song. They were played perfectly with the exact tone I was going for. I would be happy to work with him again!
Amazing songwriter and a true professional! I would highly recommend him to anybody who is looking for a producer/songwriter with a good sense of creative writing.
I hope to collaborate with Alex more going forward!
This is my second time working with Alex. He is an amazing piano player and brings his passion for the craft in your finished product. He works until you are 100% satisfied with the final product and in a timely manner(he finished much earlier than the deadline I sent). I would definitely recommend him and can vouch for his quality work.
Alex wrote and recorded an amazing piano part for a song I’m putting out on my comedy YouTube channel. He captured the vibe I was going for perfectly, and he was really responsive and a great guy to work with. Thanks again Alex!

Alex had me mix and master a really great, beautiful song. Wonderful musicianship and vocal performance. He knew exactly what he was going for and easily communicated the sound he was after. Good stuff.
Alex is super creative, he has captured the emotion I was looking for absolutely perfectly! Also, we have fantastic communication. Thanks for the beautiful song! I will definitely work with him in the future.
If you're reading this right now and considering working with Alex, trust me, it's the right call. This guy can mix. I've been recording for over six years, worked at multiple studios, and when I heard Alex's mix, it was the first time I knew someone had really taken the time to truly listen to both the song and to me. Ask anyone that knows me, I'm impossible to please. I've always struggled to find the balance between a polished sound and raw authenticity. Not with Alex. He's your guy.
Once again, Alex did an outstanding job!
Great ear for music, very professional production and nice communication.
ALEX is so kind, and he can understand me!I hope we can work together in the future!
This is my second time working with Alex and he's quickly becoming my go-to guy for vocal mixing. He's able to create amazing moods for my work, and he's stellar at EQ'ing too. I don't know much about the technical side of music/audio but he's able to break it down for me in a way that I understand. I look forward to working with him again in the future. Highly recommend!
Alex really helped me out with my track. He has an amazing sense of melody and a beautiful voice. I couldn’t be happier with my finished project. Highly recommend him!
Alex was extremely timely and professional in his responses. He has a great ear for vocal mixing and I'm super happy with how he mixed my track and the atmosphere he created for it. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants someone who is both an artist and a professional. He is also an amazing solo artist (Tiny Dolphin), which is actually how I found out about him! Looking forward to working with you again in the future, Alex.
Alex puts in a lot of time and effort into making your song sound the best that it can. He works until you are 100% satisfied with the final product and makes changes to make it sound the way you want. He works in a timely manner and is an amazing piano player. I plan to work with him again in the future.
I have worked with Alex a couple of songs and his work is always as good as you can expect. I recommend Alex as a pianist and songwriter!
