What's up I am a San Francisco based songwriter & producer passionate about making music. I have been active in the Bay Area music scene and beyond for 20+ years, producing, recording & managing projects in professional studios, composing licensing work from scores to content for The North Face, as well as self-producing my own music.
From humble beginnings home recording to performing on notable festival stages at SXSW, Noise Pop & Bottlerock with favorable press & radio play with Dangermaker, I am familiar with many stages of an artist's development. I would love to help bring your project to life whether you need remote mixing, mastering, remixing, a session musician, or vocalist. I have a private studio with a live room and separate iso mix room well setup for remote collaboration.
MIXING & MASTERING: I am an experienced audio engineer with proper knowledge of recording, mixing, eq, compression & acoustics. I primarily work in Logic on a Yamaha HS monitor system, and offer mastering services as well as reel-to-reel tape mixdowns on my Sony TC-7884 soon (in for repairs).
REMIXES: I love doing remixes! I've done house style remixes, electronic dance remixes, even down tempo electro trip-hop ones. Fun!
SESSIONS: I can provide your project with main vocals, backing vocals and/or harmonies. My voice ranges from breathy pop, to dark indie, to edgy alternative, I trained with vocal coach Raz Kennedy. I can provide your project with synth parts from lead lines to rich pads. I have several Korg synths, Arturia & Rhodes, as well as more software instrument plugins than I can count including electronic drum programming. Guitar is my primary instrument – electric, acoustic & bass – mostly a fender guy.

Adam is very communicative from the get-go. He immediately responded to my messages and turned around the mix drafts within minutes of receiving feedback. Customer service is primo! He will be attentive to the details and nuances of your song's energy which enables him to pull the best audio out of your recorded materials. Furthermore, he will listen to your critiques and help execute your artist vision. Well done! Song mixed by Adam: 'Parasites (Dear Aliens)' by John Budnik Band
Adam Brookes delivered a fantastic remix that was so good it gave me chills. His sparkling, energetic rendition breathed new life into the tune while still honoring the original. I'd highly recommend working with Adam on your next project!
