Jacobthewilliam on SoundBetter

I was born with the burning desire to capture sounds of daily activity, the awe-inspiring overtones of nature, or the cadence involved in communication. I wanted to capture elation. Pain. Want. Persuasion & debate. The choice of words one uses in attempt to convince an absolute stranger or lifelong lover to congress, or, to know what it feels like

An established music producer, audio engineer, beat maker, mixing engineer with over 15 years experience and about 5,000 recordings under his belt - Jacobthewilliam has been there/done that, but still manages to maintain a uniquely mysterious ability to stay "off the grid" and out of the limelight. Which, according to him, requires an immense amount of effort [No kidding]. Although he’s already had a lengthy and fulfilled career, It's been only recently that he has began making sporadic appearances outside of his basement studio, while now occasionally popping up on the WWW. “One step at a time” he says. Mainly through word of mouth he's been able to stay afloat this long, but only recently the music scene began figuring out who he is and thus making the connections between the multiple placements and familiar songs he is responsible for. Another unknown fact is that he's published his own poetry book titled "The Glee Of Gloom" in addition to owning/managing his own recording studio, he also plays nearly every instrument and has been the frontman to numerous touring bands. He often likes to make claim to his uncanny ability to not only communicate with dead people (while practicing voodoo) he enjoys using torture techniques such as “waterboarding [musicians] to the point of breaking" … "If that’s what I have to do to get an honest recording well then that’s what we’ll do!"
