I specialize in "seed-to-fruit" music production. That means I am completely involved and am professionally proficient with every aspect of a song from idea to you pressing play. I have two EP's and an album out on every major streaming outlet that I entirely wrote, sang, produced, instrumented, mixed, and mastered myself. My most recent project is now competing and charting across radio stations across the country. I understand the emotional and technical aspects to each record to bring these records to life. I am in love with the process and want to see how you need things to hear.
I am dedicated to understanding where the song is coming from and where you want it to go so I can better understand your needs.
I will master your track using industry standard plug-ins paired with my technical expertise and experience to produce commercial quality projects. I am looking forward to working with you on your next project.

Interview with Alex Martin
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Fairly Oddparents so I could live in peace, wish my studio into existence on that island so I can just live doing what I love from that island.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: FUN = Finalizing Until Nice I want to make this process enjoyable and I want to give you peace of mind. With respect to the creative process, I understand how to make a song BIGGER without compromising dynamics and overloading signals. I finalize things until they are nice on the ears. I bring balance to a song while still boosting its presence.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: J Dilla, 40, Shiloh Dynasty, The Beatles, Bob Marley, Rihanna, and Prince are artists/producers that immediately come to mind when I think about those who inspire me.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I have music deals with E!TV, MTV, ESPN, and Bravo for licensing in the works. I am always working on new music. I'm working on several albums as well.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise I will give your project my full undivided attention and expertise. I will treat your record with the same detail as I would treat my own.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love the inspiration I get when connecting with other artists. It makes me feel apart of a bigger community and I derive a sense of pride knowing I do what I love.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started singing when I was four. I've been writing songs for thirteen years, producing for nine years, mixing and mastering for 7 years, and have been playing multiple instruments since the age of 7. I worked as a music teacher in London, NYC, and Upstate New York. I also became a professional songwriter for TV shows and Broadway. I love what I do. My life has always been music, I just made my life my career.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, Singer-Songwriter, Soundtrack, Acoustic, Alt-Rock, and Hip-Hop instrumentals
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I can juggle. No but seriously, I can and it has helped me in many aspects of my life besides a cool party trick. I've learned to juggle in music with balance. It's all about the balance... with respect to EQ-ing, compression, levels, and stereo imaging, I make sure the project isn't harsh on the ears and digestible to the commercial palette.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: - Yamaha HS-8s - Yamaha HPH-MT5s Studio Monitoring Headphones - AKG C 214 Professional Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone - Macbook Pro - 12 String Brunswick Acoustic Guitar - Fender Telecaster (limited edition) - 6 String Luna - Ukulele - M-Audio BX5s - M Audio Midi Keyboard - Stand Up Piano - Logic Pro X - Scarlett Interface
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common work I do for my clients are mixing and master. When my clients send me their stems what they all ultimately communicate is that they want their sound louder, bigger, and more balanced. My job is to take their creative decisions into account when approaching the record to make it sonically and functionally, commercially viable.
