Zeke Reed on SoundBetter

Hello! I am a classically-trained cellist, rock bassist and producer who specializes in electronic and indie music. I produce music in the Santa Monica Mountains in my converted shed studio. Looking to work with artists who want a holistic creative experience to help unlock their full artistic potential.

All great music comes from somewhere, and that's why every song I make starts with setting the right mindset and intention. Through combining meditation, nature walks, gratitude practices, surfing, cooking, vulnerable conversations and more, my work as a producer goes beyond sculpting the sound. I see myself as a creative partner, collaborator and coach, helping artists unlock their full potential lyrically, musically, and spiritually. While this process can certainly take place remotely, I am most excited when I can bring artists to the studio in person and guide them in a holistic creative experience. I specialize in indie music, but I work with artists in a range of genres who are looking for something more than a transactional, cookie-cutter artist/producer relationship. If you're inspired to go beyond the status quo and make the process part of the art itself, please reach out. I am open to all, and willing to work on a sliding scale depending on scope and budget. I am experienced in both Ableton and Logic, and I make music under the name Friends of and with my band FNTN.
