Vibrantly coloured and sonically enhanced Masters that focus on the full spectrum. I deeply care for music & the ones who create it—I will be with you every step of the way. Whether you have a mix that needs some feedback first or you're ready to get it out in the world with some final polish, I can't wait to get started on it with you!

I love Mastering because I get to chase down hidden sonics in recordings & elevate moments that are wholly unique to that arrangement. My focus is to always serve the vision of a song—while balancing the polishing aspects and creative colouring—to achieve music that is fresh and elevated, yet true to your original design.

I bring a unique tool set as I've worked in genres from Hip-Hop, Alt Rock, Pop, Folk, Punk, & many experimental other DIY projects—though I specialize in R&B, Pop, & Hip-Hop.

I've played and recorded music for more than a decade now & have produced/mixed on many albums, so if you're needing friendly/critical feedback or to push back on your final mix or arrangement—I’ve got you covered!

I offer unlimited alterations. I prefer this method as it allows the most communication for the best & client preferred result.

• Done by ear with industry standard loudness achieved
• A focus on perceived loudness—the whole frequency spectrum in mind
• Your track will be loud, dynamic and full sounding—no ‘blanket on the speakers’
• Level matching any reference or master for vinyl

Music is extremely personal & I promise to treat both you & your music with the utmost sincerity. I am so excited to hear what you’ve been working on.

    6 Songs completed with TJ and every one of them has a unique and incredible quality to them. He is a great composer and gives amazing feedback.

    I'm glad I got to make an album with someone as passionate about his work as I am with mine.

  2. Review by jacob.henderson-ca

    TJ is an excellent example of what a professional producer should be. He is talented, timely, creative, kind, and overall just a blast to work with.

    Couldn't be happier with how this track turned out. If you are looking for a quality producer with experience both in music and customer service you have come to the right person. TJ is super helpful and very easy to talk to. He takes the time to understand your idea and bring it to life. Will be returning for many more tracks.

    Fantastic experience again. TJ always helps bring my vision to life while adding so much extra with his talent.

  5. Review by Alex T.

    Tj has always delivered( and then some)
    Always helps with lyrics, ideas (even though he doesn't have to he still puts it forward to help)
    Puts way more time into his job than he should.

    The best experience with tj is in the studio, he's welcoming, is open to talking about projects why they are made, life in general.

    He has the skill. He has the ambition, you won't be disappointed with using tj on a project.

    TJ took a weird idea and delivered! Saw and heard out the vision and nailed it. Thanks TJ! Highly recommend in the indie pop genre !!

  7. Review by jacob.henderson-ca

    TJ was great to work with. I gave him my vision and a couple of songs I liked the sound of, and he helped me bring my song to life.

    He is super easy to work with and very friendly in-person and online. Looking forward to working with TJ again soon!

    Working with TJ has been such a smooth creative experience for me. He is full of visions and ideas and has been the biggest help throughout. He is able to transform any vocal snippet into the most sonically beautiful piece. How he does that is beyond me! Super kind and a pleasure to work with :) so happy about this work chance!

  10. Review by Bimo K.

    Working with Tj was an amazing experience when it comes to mix/mastering also the production side of it as well! Not like other producers out there they rush and just don't care about the artist as much., Tj really takes his time and puts in 100% into his work. Well done!

  11. Review by Duj'on D.

    TJ is a great producer.

    He only had a MP3 file to work from rather than a stem file or layered tracks, and still made the finished product sound way better than the original.

    I recommend TJ for lo-fi projects that a lot of producers are not fond of or shy away from.

    TJ is such a pleasure to work with. He's got a great ear for layers and is really creative with his mixes, creating balanced soundscapes that complement his songwriting. He's already got the magic, I'm just emphasizing it ~

    TJ worked his songwriting magic once again. Gave me a great variety of layers, textures, vocal tones, and samples to mix. He's also really clear and kind with his communication about what's working and what's not. Feels good to naturally come to a place where we're both stoked about the final mix/master!

    TJ is a super sweet, super creative human. I was blown away when I first heard the track he wanted to work on, and I really enjoyed the process of taking it to an even more polished state. Can't wait to hear more music from him - hopefully music I can contribute to!

I was the producer, as well as the mixing & mastering engineer in this production
