Hi,

I'm John. I work in Los Angeles as a contracted composer for Bleeding Fingers, Hans Zimmer's joint venture with Extreme Music, the commercial production arm of Sony/ATV. I studied Music Production and Engineering at the Berklee College of Music and I'm here to make your music sound great and some extra money for myself!

I excel at mixing and production. I've done programming on big albums (Baptized, Daughtry, Head or Heart, Christina Perri {RIAA Gold}, Take Me When You Go, Betty Who). That's also where I learned to comp and edit at the professional level. I've also done vocal production for Abraham Mateo, a Spanish pop star. That's to say, I can do additional programming or edit/tune almost anything you have at the highest level.

For my day job at Bleeding Fingers, I have to produce tracks in any number of genres: hip hop, funk, pop, rock, etc, so I have a good foundation in producing and mixing those genres. I can also play guitar, play bass, or sing backgrounds on projects.

In a nutshell, I have a deep background in making modern music. I can do what you need me to do, and I can do it well.

Note: my allmusic is screwed up because my name is so common. On the one below, I did the Christina Perri, Betty Who, and TimeFlies. For "John August" on allmusic, I did the Daughtry and Gavin DeGraw. The rest of those credits are by someone else who has my very common name!

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
