Michael Shanks

Top Notch Producer & Guitarist

Michael Shanks on SoundBetter

I'm a music producer who will find the best elements of your music and get them front and center in every song. I'm an experienced songwriter that knows how to weave together lyrics with music production to tell a story. Also I'm a world traveling musician, having played guitar for Duncan Sheik, Suzanne Vega and Mando Saenz to name a few.

I can produce the hell out of your song or album. My specialty revolves around the wide world of rock, anything from the old school like the Beatles or Stones to the psychedelic new wave like MGMT or Gary Clark Jr. I've produced some high energy world music as well.

Also I can write or add the perfect guitar part your song is needing. I've got over 2 decades experience playing and recording guitars.

And lastly I can help write your song. Tons of experience with lyrics and building songs from the ground up. Chords, rhythms, melodies...everything!

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
