Another awesome track with Caleb---super patient with my questions and requests, and just takes my demos and make them sound so much better than I could have hoped!
Caleb is a total class act and really helped me bring my song to life! He also advised and consulted me through much of the process and helped understand more about recording and production. 10 out of 10, will absolutely work with again!
Caleb is amazing at what he does! My sister and I came to him with lyrics and a vague vision of what we wanted and he produced an amazing and professional track.

Fast, helpful and authentic. Great vibes and song.
I hired Caleb to do production, mixing, and mastering on my song, and he was awesome to work with. He was very patient with all the adjustments I was wanting to make, and also very proactive in being creative and coming up with little touches here and there to make the song sound better. The final mix and master sound professional, and I would work with him again in a heartbeat

Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: An acoustic guitar, a battery powered keyboard, batteries, my laptop, and my portable charger. That way I could run a songwriting session while I'm waiting to be rescued!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

A: Being able to make something for someone that makes them happy and excited to pursue their dreams.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Starting my own business. I visualized the concept and built it from the ground up. Perhaps one day CH Music Productions and SoundBetter will be partners!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both...because both of them have good qualities and bad qualities, but both of them have also been used to make amazing music.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Relaxed but efficient. I’m comfortable and I get things done.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work with Post Malone. We have similar songwriting styles so I’m sure that dude and I could write a killer song together.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Learn the basics of EQ and Compression, and learn them well! They will be very useful throughout your journey producing good quality music.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I typically work on pop and hip-hop music. I love experimenting with sub-forms of pop such as indie pop, soft pop and dance pop.

Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Emotion, intelligence, and honesty.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I start in the morning with a cup of coffee and a piano. Then I move to the computer and begin to piece together the idea of the day using Logic Pro X and a room full of instruments. Things progress from there...
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: John Lennon and Paul McCartney are my biggest heroes in music, while Max Martin and Rick Rubin inspire me to be the best music producer that I can be.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most of the work that I do for clients involves music production or songwriting. I love to conceptualize and compose music for artists who are looking for songs that capture their artistic spirit. I work alongside the client, learning about their strengths and finding ways to emphasize them with my music.
