    Leif was a dream to work with. They totally took the time to really understand what I was going for and asking for and delivered exactly what I wanted and everything I didn't know I needed at the same time. Super communicative and collaborative and just knows their stuff. Will 100% be hitting them up to work together again. Don't think about it any longer, just book em!

    Leif is an incredibly talented musician and producer!His ability to produce jazzy Hip Hop beats AND compose film scores was perfect for the fusion of vintage film noir sound and modern RnB production that we worked on. He really took his time to listen and made sure he would get my vision right. Working with Leif was a dream! Sending ideas back and forth and talking everything through made this feel like a true collaboration.
    I'd absolutely recommend working with him! :)

    Leif has never failed to amaze me. We both have worked together on many different projects, little and large. He has always been super cooperative, kind, and outgoing. He also taught me so much about the music world and positively impacted my perspective as a musician. Leif is very open-minded and has incredible ideas that have great potential! I met him through music collaboration and I am so grateful. He’s a super cool human and a remarkable artist; he’s very talented, never hesitating to create beautiful, emotional masterpieces. I am excited for what the future has in store!

    Leif is an outstanding composer who I've had the great pleasure of working with on several film projects. Not only does he bring an amazing artistic talent to the table, but also a dedication and passion for music that's truly inspiring. Working incredibly well under pressure, Leif has consistently blown me away with the emotional and deeply resonating scores he creates, perfectly adding an entire new layer to films. He is a great collaborator and is always incredibly knowledgeable and helpful! I highly recommend Leif for film score compositions and am excited to work with him again!

    Leif composed the score for my short animated film. He is very dedicated to his craft, and created a unique and beautiful soundtrack. Everyone who watched the film said the music fit the story, mood, and timing perfectly.

Interview with Leif Baker

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

  2. A: I’m currently working on a very cool film about the philosophical concept of existence. The score is super dreamy and otherworldly. I’m super excited to share it when I finish it in the next couple weeks!

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

  4. A: I love learning and I love making people happy. I always ask my collaborators about their perspective and try to wrap my head around their dreams in order to make it happen. I’m always adapting and growing to suit everyone’s needs.

  5. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  6. A: Look for people who are passionate about what they do. There are so many producers who say they’re good but they really are in it for a paycheck. You really want to work with people who have a drive and an eye for artistry. Those are the people who adapt to your wants and make big things happen.

  7. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  8. A: My strongest skill would be creating grooving bass lines and jazzy chord progressions in the span of like 10 minutes.

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

  10. A: I bring harmonic nuance and perfectionist detailing to any song in a short period of time.

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. A: I have a highly accessible and productive workspace at my own home which I built. The room is acoustically treated and properly decorated for creative inspiration. It’s a fantastic place to make ideas come to life. If I need to record I know several studio owners with a lot of flexibility, so I could schedule something within a day or two of notice.

  13. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  14. A: I’m really inspired by people like Flying Lotus who produces his own unique music and instrumentals for other hip-hop artists like Kendrick Lamar, Anderson .Paak, and Denzel Curry. The work he does would be the closest thing to the stuff I produce from hard hitting kick drums to jazzy harmonies and trippy samples.
