    Jason is not only a truly talented guitarist but also an excellent producer who solves musical challenges with ease, making sure the final product is complimentary in every way. He was able to make every section of my song sound musically interesting with every progression of the chorus. This is one of the few songs I wrote where a lot of the vocal melody set up sounds very similar with eachother, so having his creative interpretation was helpful in creating a sense of varied movement and change

    Hiring Jason was without a doubt the best decision I could have made. He is amazingly talented. Jason brought his experience and talent from all genres and styles and played something that is perfect for the song. His guitar work was beautiful and filled with beautiful melodies and an impeccable performance. I don't want to overlook the recording itself. The recording is pro studio quality and very professional. Spectacular from performance to recording. Jason has my highest recommendation.

Interview with Jason Swanson

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: "A Brother's Love" is something I tracked multiple layers of acoustic and electric guitar on, and I feel I helped bring the song to a higher level with the solo portion especially.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Tracking a debut album from 60's Rock n' Roll group, as well as tracking acoustic guitar on a new-age pop song.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Thomas Daniel, who is a superb vocalist and musician. Check him out!

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Digital, because I want to spend the most amount of time I can working on making great music, not with tons of outboard analog gear.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: That I will deliver a well played, well engineered recording that fits the project's needs.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: I love solving little musical problems. This often comes in the form of knowing what you want, and having to work through making it a reality. It's always satisfying to take something that is a challenge, and create something to be proud of.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: "Can you record guitar in the style of ______?" Answer: "Yes, I'd love to. When can I get started?"
