I genuinely love music & people. I want to create memories through music. It's all about the song, the sound is just like makeup, highlighting the person behind it.
I'm Levi, a professional music producer, that loves music & people. That means that I don't just create pro-sounding recordings, but also want to create an emotional experience for the listener. Cause, in the end, we all tend to remember things connected to a feeling more than just hearing a good sounding song.
About me. I have a bachelor's degree in music production. I work professionally as a music producer and mixing engineer. I play guitar, piano, drums, trumpet, and synthesizer (if that counts). My specialties are ambient textures, lo-fi sounding instruments, interesting melodies, and lighter crisp beats, anything that marries to the song.
I'd love to help you make the best out of your musical idea! Don't hesitate to reach out!

3 ReviewsEndorse Levi Stark
I highly recommend Levi! He has great talent, he is skilled but still humble. And that is hard to find in the music industry.
His sound is fresh. He is a perfectionist and will go the extra mile for you.
When we worked with pionjär he was the heart and soul. Bringing it together from the start to the end.
Easy to work with, easy to like and affordable. There is no one I recommend more then Levi when it comes to music production.
We really enjoyed working with Levi, he is not only a skilled producer but a good songwriter as well.
He is thorough and attentive in his producing. We will highly recommend him to anyone.
The collaboration with Levi really exceeded my expectations. I'm so pleased with the result of my latest song.
Levi is a fantastic person with a big heart for other people. He puts a lot of time and dedication into his projects, which is why the result is also professional. He listens to his client's suggestions and ideas and then creates great music out of that.
I will contact Levi with my upcoming songs. So don't hesitate. He is AWESOME!

Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Hmm, don't think I know anyone else here. At least not yet. ;)
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Mostly digital for me, cause it's cheaper, and can sound almost the same as analog stuff.

A: You will get to know a super kind guy with a passion for music and a drive to make your musical idea the best it can be.

Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Most people don't know the meaning of the saying "True art takes time".
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What's your why behind the song? What is the message the song carries? What is your vision considering sound, genre, style, etc?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Have an open mind. Have some reference tracks ready if you kinda know what you want it to sound like, and know that in the end, it's all about how solid the song (foundation) is.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: If they got electrical power there, then it would be a computer with logic, a midi-keyboard, an sm57, a pair of headphones, and an audio interface.

A: I've been doing music production for 5 years now. My plan was and is still to take every chance I can to develop my skills and learn to be a better producer, mixer, and songwriter. Whether it is a job for a client or a conversation with somebody who knows something that I don't.

A: Any artist/songwriter who has a message to carry out to people through their music is more than welcome to contact me. I would also love working with ambitious filmmakers that need music to convey a message.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Find a vision for the song you're working with. Whether it's concerning sound or the message, it's important to know where you want to go and what your goal is, so you don't just do stuff and see where you end up.

Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: A vision, a sound, and a message.
Q: What's your typical work process?

A: Right now I keep things pretty simple. I've got an iMac with logic, a pear of great JBL speakers, a Liquid Saffire, a pair of electric guitars, a pair of acoustics, a Yamaha DX7, a Yamaha trumpet, and a variety of microphones to choose from. I'm also kind of a nerd when it comes to guitar pedals and ambient sounds, so I've got some Strymon stuff too.
