Lake South on SoundBetter

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.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
