    I hired Dakota to produce a demo from a worktape and to lay down the vocals. It was an all-around great experience. He did an excellent job capturing the song's vibe, understood and implemented my notes seamlessly, and was a pleasure to work with. I will definitely call on him again!

I use a variety of sound packs/plugins including Kontakt, Massive, IzoTope, Zenology, and Waves. I’m also set up to record live instruments such as Guitar, Bass, etc.

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

  4. A: I began my career as a session drummer at the age of 14. I quickly became interested in music production and never stopped! In 2017 I relocated to Los Angeles and have worked with multiple artists across the city. Since then I’ve garnered hundreds of thousands of streams on Spotify/Apple Music between my personal projects and other writing credits.

  5. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  6. A: I promise you will be completely satisfied with our work together! I’m a really chill, laid back person and super easy to work with. I will listen to your dreams for your project, but I will also challenge you and push it as far forward as possible! I allow 3 revisions, but I’m pretty flexible with that as well. If it needs more then we’ll make it happen!

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

  8. A: I love bringing out the emotion in a project. Wether your song is happy, sad, or angry. I want you to walk away knowing that you expressed yourself through music to the fullest extent!

  9. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  10. A: 1. My drums! (Does that count as one piece? Haha) 2. Computer 3. Acoustic Guitar 4. Keyboard 5. Speaker

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

  12. A: I work on a variety of different music. My bread and butter is pop. But I’ve also worked on indie, rock, and acoustic projects.
