I am a versatile keyboard player based out of Los Angeles, CA. I have performed, toured and/or recorded with many artists including David Archuleta, Laufey, American Idol winner Maddie Poppe, Harry Mack, Raquel Rodriguez, Lila Drew, Bob Mintzer, and the Glen Miller Orchestra. I am also an official Nord artist. Let's work together!
I absolutely love connecting with an artist and helping them with their vision and the story they want to tell! Whether it be laying down emotional pianos, some funky organ, or building custom synth sounds for your project, my ultimate goal is to make sure you are happy with the final product.
I have a degree in Jazz Studies from the University of Southern California, and I also have experience playing a wide variety of genres including pop, funk, r&b, folk, latin, and country. Throughout my career, I have worked with many different artists from a wide variety of backgrounds ranging from major label artists to talented singer songwriters, and I know what it takes to make music at the highest level.

Interview with Max Naseck
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I want you to be 100% satisfied with my work.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Even if you're not sure what you want, don't hesitate to contact me! I love to work with clients to help them develop a sound or style that they enjoy.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Never doubt yourself and your creativity! If you have a "crazy" idea, don't be afraid to pursue it. You might like where you end up :)
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Not only am I a piano player, but also an experienced producer, multi-instrumentalist, and bandleader. I know how to look at a song from a variety of different perspectives, and that is very important to figuring out how my particular part needs to fit into a song. I am also very adept at programming synthesizers and the Hammond organ, and I love to bring different flavors, textures, and soundscapes to your song!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I love to discuss with a client not just the specifics of my role recording keyboards, but also their overall vision for the song and project. If you are unsure of exactly what you are looking for, that's ok! I always like to ask different questions about song structure, instrumentation, arrangement, etc. Once I have a good idea of what the client is looking for, I record the various stems and always send them clearly labeled and bounced in the highest quality format.
