I will write and produce a song, specially optimized to your voice, your vocal style and vibe. I'm specialized in pop, dream pop and electronic indie pop. I also mix and master podcasts.
I've been working in the music industry for 15 years now. As a drummer, I released several records with different bands, some of them chart topping. As a drummer, I've been playing some of the largest stages in switzerland. I also work for national swiss radio, so I know exactly, what your song needs to get attention. I will write and produce songs for you, or if you already have that, mix and master your song.
I love music and I love good songs. I prefer to have e creative exchange. I don't see this as a primary way to make money - but more to experience some great collaborations and learn more about music.
I also share a deep love for podcasting. Working in radio as a host and producer, I know exactly, how your podcast and product should sound, to get the best effect.

Interview with Thomas Brown
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am working on a couple of drum programmings and chorus melodies.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: It always depends on the song, the style and the idea behind it.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Being able to be creative every day!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I think the most important thing is: Do I feel comfortable while writing with this guy? That's the question you should ask yourself. And second: Do I like the work this provider has done? If you can check those two boxes - go for it.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Simple. A Guitar, A midi-keyboard, a microphone, an interface and a macbook with logic. That is all you need to build great songs.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been making music for 20 years now. I started recording music with bands as an early teenager, started touring all of europe and with my work in the radio industry, I got more interested in the production side of music. It all came pretty natural, tbh.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: There's way too many. But I'd love to work with M83, Dua Lipa and Lewis Capaldi at one point.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: The most important one: Never "fix it in the mix"! If your demo lacks power, if your song lacks this great chorus - it's not a mixing-problem. Your song isn't just there. The most important thin in music production: write a damn good song. And everything else will fall into place. Never rely on gear, the mix or master.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: My main genres are: pop, indie pop/rock, rock, synth-pop, synthwave and new wave. But I worked on hip hop productions as well.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Writing songs and melodies and producing drum tracks that blow you away.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I tend to think of myself a someone, who can find the sweet spot of your song. What is the big chorus? Where are the magic moments happening? Which parts could be left out? All that stuff.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work in three different places with different setups. At my home studio, I mainly write songs and program drums. In this day and age, you don't need bit studio setups anymore. I like to work with a limited setup, because too much gear, in my opinion, interferes with your creativity and holds you back. For podcast mastering, I work at a production spot at my radio station. And for mastering and referencing in general, I work at a professional recording and mastering studio with several other mixer and engineers, to cross-reference my work.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: There's a large variety of very different styles and genres that inspire me. I love a good wall of sound as much as I love an intimate, lo-fi production. to me, it is all about the song and never a specific style or sound.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: There are mainly two things I do: I get requested a lot to write big chorus melodies, vocals and music. And on the other hand, I produce complete drum-tracks fitting to a specific song.
