I can only make you sound like the best version of yourself.
9+ years experience in mix engineering, production and being a musician. I've worked with a wide range of genres, with artists big and small, from around the world. I've acquired 100s of thousands of streams from multiple artists. I specialize in trying to find your vision and bring it out to be the best it can be.
I'm not going to sit here and sweet talk you through my process, because that won't make a good song. Whether writing, producing, mixing, mastering or recording, my number 1 priority is to just make a good song, with ZERO ego involved, and I'll do whatever it takes to get that. I don't prioritize making a quick buck, or building business, I only care about the music, because that's what I love. Check out my demo above, and if you like the sound of the tracks I've worked on, then maybe I'm the right one for you.
I also offer unlimited revisions, to guarantee that you get what you are looking for.
