Are you ready to take your songs to the next level?
My name is Erick Goin, I'm a recording engineer/ producer based out of Seattle, Washington. My background in production started when I was in high school. At the time I was playing in bands and I wanted to record demos of the songs we had written. From there my fascination with the production world expanded to working with other artists. Currently, I specialize in full production, mixing, and mastering for Rock and Metal. I am however not limited to just those two genres. If you're interested in working with me feel free to contact me.
Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
