If one of my clients who was on The Voice China wants to record with me, you should too! I'll professionally record, mix, and master your track and you can have as many edits as you want.
I have an M.M. from Berklee College of Music, and currently I manage two electronic artists and do freelance recording and mixing. I have also taught guitar and done music transcription, as well as having been a former Label Manager/A&R.
I am currently based in Amsterdam, and I offer bespoke studio recording and audio mixing and mastering services. I have worked with indie singer-songwriters, tabla players, Central Asian ensembles, saxophonists, oudists, Latin musicians, vocalists, and more. While I specialize in recording and mixing, I can master your music and produce beats for you as well.
N.B. Mixing is done remotely in-the-box and studio recording can be wherever you want.
Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

Harry makes every project memorable. I have worked with him on several projects - as a Tabla player, music composer and as a percussionist in the Central Asian ensemble, and every moment has been memorable.
Harry's listening skills, IT skills and the his musical sensibilities make him stand out as a profession recording, mixing and mastering engineer.
(On a lighter note, Harry loves this Indian sweet called Gulaajamun, and a good Latte keeps him going !! )
Can't recommend Harry enough. The guy's got crazy ears and holds himself and his work to a high standard. Best thing is he's a trained musician, so he gets it. Looking forward to working with him again because he's worth every penny!
Harry produced two of my songs in 2019 and we had such a great time making music together!
He’s very patient and a great listener when it comes to understanding what an artist wants out of a session. He’s a hard worker who’s never afraid of a challenge and always finds solutions with great calm. Furthermore, Harry has worked with a wide range of music genres and his input is very valuable if an artist would like to step out of their omfort zone and experiment with sound. Overall, Harry’s very professional and just great at what he does!
