A++. Again. And another project begins. Trevor is like wine. He gets better as time goes by.
Trevor continues to astound us. Finding the right person to bring ideas and demos to life the way you envisioned them is incredibly difficult. But Trevor does it for our songs time after time. He's great to work with, offers advice, and understands what we are shooting for. Highly Recommended,
Everything was just perfect and Trevor is a dedicated engineer who's not afraid, to be honest about your tracks. We recorded vocals again and they got more tight and confident. The mix and mastering are perfect as well. we can't wait to release this into the wild. Will definitely hire again in the future for more Metal and Punk tracks.
I have worked with Trevor multiple times now, and I will continue to seek him out whenever I have a project that needs professional attention. He understands my vision, goes the extra mile to get things done perfectly, and will add his creative input. He’s also very easy to work with.
Trevor is absolutely amazing. He understands where the song is going from my perspective, and is able to bring it light years beyond. He is not afraid to recommend something, or try something different. His communication is great, and his final product is second to none. I'm choosing five stars here, but a sixth needs to be added.
Our band A Cure for Love recorded our first album with Trevor and he was super helpful through the whole process. We did 11 songs with Trevor and he worked through each and every one to make sure anything we were uncertain of or weren’t committing to 100% got resolved before the final product. That was so valuable in someone who is working with you on your music, not just someone who works on it and says “here you go” when they’re done. We would recommend Trevor over and over to anyone who wants their music professionally recorded, mixed, and/or mastered!
The quality and professionalism The Mighty Bristlecone received while working with Trevor was second to none. Highly recommend.
My band recently recorded our first album with Trevor and it came out better than we could’ve dreamed. Trevor is fantastic to work with and anyone who has worked with him will tell you he works his hardest to make you a better artist. Anytime we need a project done we know who we’re gonna have produce it.
I was getting ready to release a single, but was unhappy with the volume level, clarity, and punch of the master. Trevor was recommended to me by a friend to take a look at the mix and give it a re-master. Instead of just powering through it, Trevor took the time to listen to the mix and offered a couple suggestions before he started on the master. It's obvious that he cares about the artists that he works with and is willing to go the extra mile. The final master sounded tons better and his turn-around was lightning fast.
Trevor is a multi talented guy. Not only can he play guitar, keys and bass well, his music theory knowledge is solid so if you’re arranging or still writing a song he can give you excellent advice to serve the song best. He is versatile in his skill in multiple DAWs. As a tracking engineer top notch, hospitality amazing, serving the artist and the song excellent. His mastering work is of the industry standard. His mixing work is really great. His genre versatility continually grows and he’s humble enough to keep learning.
Interview with Trevor Boggs Productions
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Robert Brisbane
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: John Feldmann, Warren Huart, Greg Wells, Al Schmitt, Tom Delonge, Maynard James Keenan, Sylvia Massy, Mark Hopus... this list could go on and on.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: A couple years ago I worked on an EP which ended up charting Top 5 on one of billboard independent artist charts. That project I fully produced and even co-wrote some of the material, as well as full post production, guest vocal harmonies, additional guitars, mix and master.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Just completed production, mixing and mastering of a 14 song Metal album and 17 song Rap album. Editing, Post-Production, Vocal Comping, Mix and Master of 5 song Pop-Punk EP. And mastered a few CCM and Indie singles. Working on a Pink Floyd BSide cover album for client after the new year.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I grew up listening to a lot of Blink-182. Even though some may say the music is simple I would love the chance to even sit in on a session.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask for a rough mix (if available), a reference mix to focus on overall desired instrument levels (if the multitracks are provided that is), what they are looking for in a finished result, or if they're open to additional post production ideas and/or complete mix freedom.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: 20 years in live audio. 16 years in the studio.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: My personal studio is an analog and digital hybrid setup because it feels the best for my work flow. During tracking I could potentially be moving around locations depending on the clients budget, so I make myself comfortable in both analog and digital environments.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To work to my full ability for the project at hand.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Making a client super excited to see their project come to life, typically in ways they've yet to imagine.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: First is always asking the "Rate?". For full song start to finish it really depends on what the project at hand calls for. I trying not to over charge a client, while at the same time not undercutting myself. I understand budgets play a huge factor in determining a potential producer/engineer, yet if the budget is all a potential client cares about, typically I'm not the person for them. I like to work with people who invest in themselves as an artist, as I do the same in return. "Turnaround?" As long as no mix revisions are needed, a song master is usually same day. EP 3-4days. Full Album 1 week. A mix depends on the track count and if additional post production or editing is needed before the mix stage begins.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: My appearance is perceived as more Hard Rock, however my iTunes library also contains a lot of musicals, and classical as well.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: To message/talk with any potential producer/engineer to determine if they're on the same page. I've had clients in the past who have shelled out thousands on a song because someone may have worked with this artist or may have a Grammy nomination who were unhappy with the given results from them and ended up loving the work I've done for them in the mix/post production and/or mastering stage.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Solar powered generator, MacBook Pro with enough storage and my entire plugin library, Universal Audio Apollo Twin Quad, Townsend Labs L22 Microphone, and a Taylor T5 hollow body electric guitar.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I love working with all styles and typically can offer production ideas most artists haven't thought of.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Maintain as relaxed of an environment as possible, a lot of artist don't want to feel pressured to capture the "perfect take", that'll happen on it's own.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Metal, Pop-Punk, and Rap.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Composition, editing, vocal tuning and vocal production.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I pride myself in vocal production mostly. I tend to hear harmonies and additional element which bring more life and interest to a song.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: For a remote mix, I review the client's rough mix while I begin track arrangement and labeling. Followed by any requested post-production work. (Post-production being time alignment, comping, re-amping, vocal production, and additional guest vocal harmonies). Then being the mix process.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Depending on budget, I do a lot of tracking out of a commercial studio while completing final overdub, mixing and mastering out of my fully remodeled acoustically treated home studio.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Complete from start to finish. Beginning with preproduction, composition arrangement, recording/editing, comping, extreme vocal production, mixing and mastering. With COVID-19 I've increased my remote mastering and mixing.
