Peter Asher Production on SoundBetter

I will always remember the first record I ever held in my hands: 'Bringing it All Back Home" by Bob Dylan. I must've listened to it a thousand times. The blood of the 60's is in my veins. I have a total crush on earnest lyricism. My desire for your music is that we make something together that gives someone that same first record feeling I've had.

I have over a decade of classical training, two decade of live performance, and a decade of mixing and production experience. I grew up in the church playing electric guitar and keys for crowds of thousands (God trains you well). Show me something with soul, and I'm all in. Americana, singer-songwriter, rock, punk, indie, etc.

I offer full mixing and guitar production packages for your music!

Interview with Peter Asher Production

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

  2. A: Filmosound 385, my '47 Martin, U67, Apollo, my SG.

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

  4. A: Get experimental with cultivating a vocal production vibe. Take off your shoes, turn off the lights, light a candle, blindfold yourself, sing lying down, take a shot of whiskey, scream right before the take. Think outside the box to get the take.

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

  6. A: Indie singer-songwriter. Americana. Ambient. Emo. Rock. Country. Folk. Probably in that order too.

  7. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  8. A: Tone. I am after color that creates interest and draws in the listener. Vanilla may be my favorite ice cream flavor, but it is the opposite of how I approach mixing.

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

  10. A: Character and dedication. I am literally diagnosed OCD. You will not be disappointed.

  11. Q: What's your typical work process?

  12. A: Listening. Always listening first. From there, I go with my gut and begin leveling and adding color. After color I tend to go after polishing elements and fixing issues. I think many people tend to go after "problems" in the mix first and foremost. Why waste the precious first listen energy on something so banal?

  13. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  14. A: I live in the heart of Washington D.C. and have spent years perfecting my space. Everything I own is handpicked and intentional, down to my custom hardwood desk that one of my great friends built for me (thanks Josiah!)

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

  16. A: Tony Berg is a unicorn and one of a kind. Blake Mills is in the same category for me.

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

  18. A: Brining the vibe to life! Adding analog feel, charactered tone, and polish to their tracks. Adding elements to the production (strings, guitars, atmosphere)
