I am the Lyricist and Executive Producer of Emotional Terrorist. Once we handed this project to Jed his talents took this project to an entirely new level. Once the team heard the final mix, their reactions were a collective "Wow!". Jed is a trustworthy communicator and in my opinion, the best in the business.
The music video I directed “Emotional Terrorist” by Billy Mercury hadn’t been mixed when I had it for production and for the edit. The EP on the project got Jed on for the final mix which I received just before the video was to release. Talk about absolutely blown away! The new mix came back and it was like day and night. EVERYTHING sounded so much fuller, so much better. In the film world there’s a saying that the sound is half the picture. Jeds work brought my work to a much better place.
Jed is the trifecta - he has great ears, he knows how to get any sound you're looking for and he's SUPER easy to work with! In addition to that, he knows just about every country, country-rock and rock song ever written from his experience as a singer/pianist. He draws from that huge body of experience to produce your song in the best possible arrangement. I am very happy with how he brought my song to life and recommend him to any songwriter! Finally, I think he could ask higher prices for the quality he provides! - Doug H. singer/songwriter
