I have years of recording / mixing experience, as well as session drumming for various record labels. Feel free to search out my resume online. My allmusic page isn't fully updated as of 2016.

I use a work vs fun formula for my skills and time. The more fun a project is, the more negotiable my rate. Mixing and recording is usually $30/hr, and drumming is based on a day rate. I'm not in any union, so my scale is flexible.

Reviews of Ted Gainey

    I'm from the Missouri Ozarks, Ted from the Mississippi delta. Yet when it came time to record my solo CD, I booked time in MS in large part so I could work with Ted Gainey. When asked to produce an EP for a friend, again I had to have Ted involved, despite the distance. Such is the respect he earns from many. And I'm happy to call him my friend.

    Ted demonstrates genuine engagement in a project - really lives the job. Exercises the utmost patience with an artist working toward the premium take. Has shown an intuition for how to approach and embrace the feel a particular song calls for. Maintains a clear, for real rapport with musicians; functions integrally in the creative process.

    Ted "T-Bone" Gainey has always been a delight to work with. He helped me start my 1st working band, Enigma Jazz Project, back in 1996. He would always bring his A-game to gigs and band rehearsals. Ted is also a great record producer as well, and has a good reputation among us Mississippi musicians in various genres. Ted is the real deal.

    Worked with Ted for many years as a fellow musician, and have participated in several of his recording projects - many of which he solely produced. Ted is a consummate professional, full of ideas and creativity. He is great at encouraging the best performances out of his clients or sidemen, and is quick to a solution in any tangled situations.
