I look for the essence of the song and add or subtract as needed. I write, record, arrange, and produce for Lake South (electro-pop, indie pop), Wellington Sea Shanty Society and a bunch of other acts.
I've been making records and doing sound since 2000.
I can take an idea and add everything needed to create something beautiful.
Production: I work with synths and electronic beats. (Lake South, Urbantramper)
Mixing: Happy to mix acoustic tracks. (Wellington Sea Shanty Society)
Sound: I've done sound editing/design for a number of web series.
I've had tracks on official Spotify playlists such as: Indie pop, Boho & chill, Creativity boost.
