Max Helgemo on SoundBetter

Working with songwriters in the indie realm! I can produce full songs, record acoustic guitars, pianos/keys, and other doo-dads.

I have a minimal Universal Audio setup with the ability to record anything a singer-songwriter could need to bring a song to life–I have the most experience playing and arranging acoustic guitar parts but can also get around on the keys/bass for most songs. I also have contacts for remote live drummers if we want to go for a fuller sound! I produced my own songs in 2019 before handing off the reigns to another producer (something I recommend doing if you can develop that trust! Two minds are better than one).

Down to email song files back and forth but we also have the option to work more collaboratively in real time using Zoom + Audiomovers ListenTo plugin! Listen to what I've made in the past and hope to chat soon!


"His colorful chord selection, and melodic brilliance collectively make Helgemo a modern-day George Harrison." -American Songwriter

"Uncovered is an immersive delight to the senses, its soundscape a textured experience of ambience and soothing bright acoustics. His singing is seductive, his lyrics achingly distinctive; simply put, we cannot wait to hear what he comes out with next..." -Atwood Magazine

  1. Review by BEE

    Max is hands down the best producer I've ever worked with. His passion for music and the creative process is palpable and it's clear he lives and breathes music. He was able to clearly see my vision, added his own flair, and brought my song to life in a way that 100% exceeded my expectations. Great communication, flawless musicianship, and overall very nice person. Would recommend 10/10

    It was a great experience working with Max.
    Very easy to communicate, he managed to help me realize what I had in mind while bringing a little bit of his own universe to it. I look forward to our next collaboration!

  5. Review by James G.

    Max is an absolute amazing producer. He makes sure you are okay with everything before finalizing. He will even help your record harmonies and guitars. He even sends you updates along the way and asks if you need anything changed/added. After recording one song with Max, I will now be doing a full EP with him.

    If you’re looking for anything singer songwriter, indie/folk. Max is your go to Producer and you’ll walk about a happy artist :)
