    Marshall is an amazing musician. He communicates well, is positive and helpful and, of course, very talented... Highly recommended and will definitely work again!

    Marshall is great. I'm very picky with vocal production - I have a lighter female voice and have struggled to find the right production to fit my rock songs, and Marshall truly nailed it. I made more progress with Marshall in 1 week on the song than I did in 9 months of working on it on my own. Marshall was also super easy to work with and put a lot of care into making sure I was happy with the song. Definitely recommend as a producer.

    Hands down the best producer you could find on this website. Its hard to find people that can take the track all the way to the finish line. He finishes production fast and really knows how to treat a vocal. Always a really great experience with Marshall. Killer songwriter plus he plays everything and shreds a guitar better than anyone you know.

    On top of being a brilliant guitar player and session musician, Marshall is one of the most naturally gifted songwriter/producers I've ever worked with. I've played in bands with Marshall and he even produced/engineered my single "Little Sister". He has so much enthusiasm and sincerity towards making music that he has set the standard for me in quality that I expect from professional musicians!

Interview with Marshall Gallagher

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

  2. A: Via Soundbetter, I've done everything from 30 second guitar tracks peppered into an EDM song to full band EPs, top down from pre-production to mixing. I can demo out your voice memos or tabs, reharmonize and reimagine your demos, or just give feedback. Anything goes in the realm of producing, songwriting, tracking and mixing.

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

  4. A: I'm definitely a rock guy at heart, but I am most inspired at the moment by hip hop and I'd really like to collaborate with some outstanding MCs.

  5. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  6. A: I have an ear for tone and musicality. I played in every type of band you can think of before I ever touched a computer, which I think that's important for someone who's trying to arrange, write and produce.

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

  8. A: Arrange your track keeping in mind there is only so much room for frequencies in any given speaker. Stacking more and more things on top of each other is cool for certain genres, but can sometimes mean less return in terms of volume, space and impact.

  9. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  10. A: Probably you, especially if you can teach me something.

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

  12. A: I started playing in punk bands when I was in high school, like ya do. Eventually that lead to some regional touring, and somewhere along the way I went to music school in my hometown (Denver, CO). I started with an emphasis in Music Business and then quickly realized I hated the music business, so I switched to Guitar Performance and started taking every gig I could. At one point I was in a Latin ensemble, a jazz guitar ensemble, a pop ensemble that played nothing but 80s cuts, two reggae bands, and my post-hardcore band Solar Bear (and working multiple part time jobs). I was working as a warehouse manager at a pasta company when 3OH!3 called me to play guitar for them - I did that full time for about 6 years and followed them to LA in 2015. I started sitting in on pop writing sessions and learning the production craft from Nathaniel Motte (1/2 of 3OH!3, multiplatinum writer/producer). Eventually I started Teenage Wrist with a few friends for the fun of being in a band - somehow we ended up with a following and a bunch of cool songs, and we signed to Epitaph Records in 2017. I spent most of the next two years writing and touring with Wrist, while also doing writing sessions and production with everyone I could. I started a pop project called Shallows with my main writing partner Dani Poppitt, we put out a couple of tunes and landed a few substantial cuts. I've also been playing the sync and licensing game pretty hard, which has kept me afloat so I can continue to produce records without a major label budget. Through all of that I slowly learned how to mix well out of necessity, so I could provide fully finished cuts on tight deadlines without having to spend anything or wait on anyone. And now I'm here, doing all the things because that's what a working musician needs to do in 2019!

  13. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  14. A: That I'm filthy rich, or desperately poor. I am neither.

  15. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  16. A: Trick question, both. I personally like tracking as much as I can with analog outboard gear and mixing (for the most part) in the box.

  17. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  18. A: I'm working on a rock record for a band called REAN, aka Sean Foreman from 3OH!3 and Rob Pera. Also working on additional production for another Gone Sugar Die record, and of course Teenage Wrist LP2. About to get in the studio with our drummer Anthony's solo project, Iron Point. I have no shortage of projects these days and I love it!
