    Sean is incredible to work with. Very professional while still being flexible when it's needed creatively. Means a lot... My second project completed with him and on to my third soon!

    I was quite happy with my experience with Sean. His communications were prompt and he's clearly a capable producer. He did guitars, drums, vocal editing, mixing, and mastering for me at what felt like a fair price. I don't think you'll be disappointed!

    Sean is first-class! Very professional producer/engineer who not only helped bring my songs to radio-ready quality but gave excellent ideas throughout the process and was so fun to work with. I learned more from working with Sean than I have in the past 3 years recording with other producers. He's very kind, efficient, knows what he's doing and certainly loves what he does too. 5/5 stars. Thanks Sean!

    I had never worked through Soundbetter before and was very hesitant. But immediately felt a sense of ease and professionalism from Sean. From there it only got better! He goes the extra mile AND has patience with your vision. Perfect combination.

    Not only is Sean truly the fastest sound engineer I've ever worked with, he also happens to have a phenomenal musical ear. The technical aspects are all there...he knows the ins and outs of recording as he's been doing it professionally for many years, but what really sets him apart is his unique ability to speak the musical language at a very high level. If you're open to it, and you should be, he will provide suggestions that can categorically improve a song. Also his attention to detail is extraordinary, & from what I've seen, there is no project that he will not give his fullest effort.

    I can't quite describe how talented Sean is. Not only does he have an incredible ear and catch things you might not otherwise, but his passion and detailed-oriented work takes his work to another level. His willingness to dig into the details to get your music to the the highest possible quality is so appreciated. Most producers don't dive into the level. You will be in great hands with Sean!

    My band MAMADEAR has worked with Sean for the better part of two years now. No one we have worked with has cared as much about our vision or took the steps and time necessary to get the best out of our sound and each song than Sean. He created a sound that is a recognizable thing and illuminates our brand in ways we have been trying to find for years.

    SHENANDOAH worked with Sean on the 'Reloaded' record produced by Rascal Flatts' Jay DeMarcus. 'Reloaded' was the first record released by Shenandoah in 17 years and Sean did an awesome job not only engineering but also helping produce background vocals AND mixing. Plus he's just a really good guy. We were very lucky to have had him work with us and you'd be lucky to have him work with you too. If you get the chance, jump on it. You won't be disappointed. I promise! Mike McGuire: SHENANDOAH

    I've worked with Sean to help prep and mix audio for radio and TV advertising. Besides having a great ear, he is highly professional, turning material quickly and on budget. He's one of the best in the business in Nashville and beyond!

    Sean's ear is impeccable and wise. He can help guide an artist to the place they are trying to get with their songs, even if they themselves are unsure. On top of his artistic chops, he is reliable, humble, and honest. I work with him often and come away pleased every time.

    I have known Sean for over 25 years and had the privilege of hanging him mix my last full length CD. The quality I’d work and attention to detail were something I hadn’t had in previous projects. I am incredibly happy with how my tracks all turned out and how quickly he got them done and I will definitely use him again on my next project.
