Gene Micofsky on SoundBetter

So you've got this incredible idea...But you need someone to snatch that beautiful invention out of the ether and pull it down to reality. From guitar parts to full-scale productions, I am here to take your musical dreams to highest level possible.

I'm Gene Micofsky, a professional working guitarist of 20+ years. I have collaborated with companies such as Netflix, Comcast, Comedy Central, Beats and so many more. I have shared the stage with artists such as John Mayer, Charlie Daniels, Little Big Town, Joe Nichols and others. An important thing to know is I am basically a one-man production machine. I have an arsenal of acoustic and electric instruments, and software instruments for days. In 2020, I partnered up with Dan Konopka of OKGo, on his new venture called Siren Sound. Together we have produced records for artists all over the world. Whether you're getting a single guitar or a full production, your song will reach heights you never thought possible!

  1. Review by Francis

    I hired Gene as a bass player. Not only did he come up with a killer bass line, but he also gave me great suggestions to take the song to an even higher level. I also received the track under different formats, giving me plenty of choice for the mix. Great communication and super fast result! Highly recommended!

Interview with Gene Micofsky

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Both! Analog sounds incredible, but modern day work flow often demands situations that digital just works better

  3. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  4. A: I love bringing a piece of music to life. Its one of the most satisfying experiences

  5. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  6. A: I would take an acoustic guitar and a note pad. I would either end up writing a million songs, or none at all. I guess we'll see! High probability I'm half-naked and shouting at volleyballs.

  7. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  8. A: I have been a professional guitarist for 20 years. I have been the music director for country, rock and pop bands on the east coast, west coast and south. In the past decade I have worked with companies such as Netflix, Beats, Comcast, Comedy Central, and many others. In 2020, I partnered up with OkGo drummer Dan Konopka as guitarist and producer of Siren Sound, helping to produce a ton of indie records from all over the world.

  9. Q: How would you describe your style?

  10. A: American rock idioms (rock, blues, Americana) fused with production aspects of the film score world.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: My service is always in favor of the song. I have an unmatched work ethic for helping artists achieve that vision.

  13. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  14. A: I have always felt that a well-written song speaks to you and tells you what it wants to be. I bring personality and character to the production.

  15. Q: What's your typical work process?

  16. A: I generally like to start by having a conversation with the artist whether it's for guitar session work or a full on production. It's important that I get inside their head, so to speak, and deliver exactly what they're looking for. Sometimes I even surprise them in a good way by giving them something they didn't think of. Either way, the work begins and I generally turnaround projects fairly quickly. The artist is a part of the entire process.

  17. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  18. A: I have a highly efficient home studio setup, providing enough firepower and resources to create a full-scale production without leaving the house. That said, I also have access to a wealth of performers that often assist in filling out productions when necessary.

  19. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  20. A: If you accomplish these two aspects in a productions, everything else will start to fall into place: An overall definable identity (even that identity is a hybrid) and one unique production element

  21. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  22. A: Singer-songwriter, rock, pop.

  23. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  24. A: You will never walk away from a project we've done together unsatisfied with the outcome.

  25. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  26. A: Guitar, bass and other instrumentation. Production. Arranging. Complimentary life coaching (kidding! but not really haha)
