    Steve was great to work with- super nice guy, very receptive to my instructions, while still adding his own sound and flavor. Very fast turn-around times- recommended!

    I worked with Steve on my most recent project and have only the highest level of respect for his talent. A total pro, with a very experienced ear, his contributions with electric guitar and bgv's were top notch. Steve will undoubtedly be my first call and recommendation in the future.

    Steve is an incredible musician. He has a vast knowledge of guitar styles and tones, and is extremely easy going. He can read music as well as improvise on the spot which makes every piece of music sound ten times better. His attention to detail and quick turn around makes me keep hiring him for film and song work and I will continue to do so.

  44. A: Indie/Folk/Surfy/Psychadelic/Acoustic

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

  46. A: The song is the most important thing. I write my own solo stuff, in my band ØZWALD and help with my buddy Jason Wade (lifehouse)'s solo productions. Being an artist also, I try to stay out of the way of the song itself and respect the vibe that thing musician is going for and just support it with as much vibe as I can.

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

  48. A: Love hearing the artist's song first, and some references can help or just a direction. Really enjoy the remote workflow of getting in and just trying things to see what feels like it fits in the song. A lot of times it might be the opposite instrumentation that we thought going in, but usually the song decides for us.

  49. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  50. A: Recently bought an old Altec mixer which has been such a blast to use on everything - I recorded everything on my solo record here which is worth checking out. Have a vintage drumset that's always mic'd and ready to record, a collection of awesome 60s guitars, a Wurlitzer and Organ. All of the tasty treats.

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

  52. A: Such a fan of all that is happening in the Indie/Folk world right now. Andy Shauf, Julia Jacklin, Sam Evian. Huge fan of self-recording artists like myself who play/produce everything themselves and all of the fun vintage sounds that have seemed to become at the forefront of the genre.

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

  54. A: Most artists send me their vocals and an accompanying instrument whether it be guitar or piano, and I finish out the rest of the production/mix with the artist.
