Dave Audé on SoundBetter

I've written songs for Selena Gomez, produced records for Sting, and won a Grammy for remixing "Uptown Funk". I'm really good at fixing and mixing and finishing stuff when artists need help getting a song over the goal line.

I do (almost) it all. Write the song (usually with co-writers), produce the music, mix the music, and make things sound great. Check out my discography - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dave_Audé_discography
