Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
I did a single for Alabama Capital, an acoustic-pop duo from Cincinnati, Ohio. They are up and coming and I got to record, produce, mix, and master one of their singles. Check it out!
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
I am absolutely proud of the work I do, and if you choose me, I will make you proud too. Please feel more than free send me an email with questions.
How would you describe your style?
My style is very modern, yet palatable for audiences of all kinds. I implement up-to-date processes that make the song sound like it was done in 2016, while making it "fit-in" with other songs you hear on the radio.
What's your strongest skill?
My strongest skill is my mixing service. The mix is where the song either "works" or just doesn't cut it. I like to make every mix incredible. I treat each mix with the same level of care as the next one. It's your song, and my name on the line. You can't go wrong with my mixing services.
What's your typical work process?
I get in touch with the artist or band and decipher their vision. When I understand the vision, we set clear goals for the process. I'll take a 50% up front deposit on each project, and write up a contract. After that, we get to work. When my work is finished, I'll send a watermark version to the artist. If they approve, they pay the other 50% and then I'll send them high-quality .wav and .mp3 files.
(We provide up to 2 revisions on every project)
What do you like most about your job?
The people. We meet incredible people all the time. They are what make our job special.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
What is your vision for the project? Who are your influences? Who is going to be listening to your music?
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
This is not fair.
Can you share one music production tip?
Dynamics. If a production is going to be successful, there must be dynamics. From the start of the song to the last note, the song needs to move and breathe. This will only happen if the producer can bring life to the song. Sometimes it is removing parts, sometimes it is adding a really cool part (like a reverse cymbal swell). Get dynamics down, you've got a killer production.
What type of music do you usually work on?
We usually work on pop, rock, indie, and electronic music.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I am heavily inspired by artists such as John Mayer, One Republic, Owl City, The Fray, Michael Jackson, and so many other great artists. Some of my favorite producer/engineers include Chris Lore-Alge, Dave Pensado, and Andrew Scheps.
