Mixing, Mastering, Production, songwriting, and anything in between. I specialize in remote mixing and allow for live listen in from anywhere in the world. Can't wait to work with you soon!
I've been in the music scene ever since I was 10 years old. After high school I decided to focus on the production side of music, I went to American River College for an AA in Commercial Music. After I graduated I started working as an assistant at Little Russia Recordings (Dance Gavin Dance, Black Map, A Lot Like Birds). After mentorship from owner Dryw Owens I have ran multiple sessions.
I specialize in Mixing and Mastering, with multiple years of experience with different genres I can bring any style to life no matter the recording.

2 ReviewsEndorse Evan "Ir0nHeade" Offenstein
When it came time to get a solid mix of an instrumental track I had made, the first person who came to mind to mix and master the track was Evan. Evan is extremely flexible and easy to work with and I can really tell that he cares about the projects he’s working on. The turnaround was extremely quick and he kept in constant contact with me about what I wanted with the track as well as consistently sending me his progress. In the end he perfectly captured the vibe I was looking for while also giving me a really solid mix. Overall, I would absolutely recommend Evan for any kind of audio service!
Evan has to be one of the nicest dudes I’ve ever met. We’ve known each other since Highschool and even went to the same guitar teacher growing up. Recently after a long hiatus from music, I decided I was ready to record some acoustic songs. Evan was one of three mixers/masters I reached out to about mixing/mastering my demos and he was by far the most approachable and easy to work with. He has a genuine love for music and really tries to bring the full potential out of the recordings. I’m stoked with what Evan came up with on my demos and I was will definitely be reaching out to him again.
