Adam Theis on SoundBetter

Leader of Jazz Mafia, one of the most in-demand Horn Sections on the West Coast. Theis has produced and co-written music for notable artists such as Lyrics Born, Zion-I, Beats Antique, Galactic, Ledesi and Blackalicious. His horns have recorded with: Otis McDonald, Amplive, Nick Waterhouse The Velvet Teen, The New Master Sounds and dozens more.

I'm most known for my work writing/arranging and recording my horn section but in the past 5 years have also been releasing many records as a producer/lead writer. I also have written and arranged strings for Lyrics Born, Ledesi and The Velvet Teen. I have a medium-sized recording studio in Oakland, CA where I record and a core crew of instrumentalists that I work with every week.

As a writer/producer I've released many albums and have co-written songs with Lyrics Born, Beats Antique, Mars Today, Zion-I and many others.

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