Looking for a professional full production package for your songs with a fresh, modern sound? I work in many genres including pop, country, indie, rock, bedroom/lofi pop, and pretty much any combination of those! I'm a Nashville based professional producer who has been in the industry for 15+ years. After receiving my Master's in Music from Yale, I spent time in New York City as a musician/producer before starting my full time production studio in Nashville. I've toured and worked with many artists, including Carly Pearce, Mickey Guyton, and Maddie and Tae.

As a multi-genre producer, I specialize in producing entire tracks from scratch, as well as mixing and mastering for an all-in-one package.

How I work:
Full Song Productions: You send me a rough demo/worktape of your song with vocals and guitar or piano, and after discussing production ideas/references/etc with you, I'll arrange, produce, perform, mix, and master the entire track from scratch, and then mix your vocals in. My goal is to always give you productions you will LOVE, and I don't set a limit on adjustments.

    Austin is great. I only needed to give a reference and explain what environment the song was aimed at and he came up with the perfect track. 100% recommended.

    Third time is a charm as they say. Third time working with Austin and he delivered an incredible interpretation of our original idea of the song. He truly does listen to the concept of what you are trying to do and brings it to life. Exceptional !!!! We will continue to work with him as we move forward.

    I hired Austin as producer from my song, From Her Home, and I ended up with as good a sound as I could have hoped for. I think Austin went above and beyond to get just the sound I was looking for. He played exquisite guitar on the song, as well as mixing live strings and percussion to get an incredible sound and song overall. I'm very happy with our final product!

    Thanks Austin! We look forward to doing another track with you.

    Austin is always approachable and receptive when it comes to knocking around ideas about how I ultimately want a song to sound like. He is super knowledgeable about todays commercial sound and always incorporates it into the final production. I will certainly be using him in the future for other projects

    Artists- songwriters- this is your producer. Austin produced my 5 song EP like an absolutely PRO (cause he is lol). Whatever genre, whatever your references, Austin will work his special brand of magic on your creation. Austin's a legend!

    I can't say enough about the experience I had working with Austin. He not only was able to take a basic piano/vocal track and turn it into something contemporary and dynamic, but he also added an element of patience that I found incredibly refreshing. Always sending updates and asking for feedback/advice was welcomed and the level of interaction exceeded my expectations.. I am looking forward to working with him again. Bravo !!!!

    Working with Austin was truly excellent! He came on recommendation and did not disappoint. He took a basic demo to a level I did not even see could be done, and really made the song "sail!" Also, I am new to this process and he was super accommodating and patient, and explained a lot of stuff along the way--appreciate his professionalism in communicating and working with me to work through some extra details up front : ) Thanks so much, Austin! Appreciate the artistry & quality of all you did!

Interview with Austin Moorhead

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  2. A: Home Studio with 2 ISO booths and guitar amp ISO box, Distressor EL8X Compressor, Chandler TG2 Abbey Road Stereo Pre, WAVES complete plugins/ tons of others, Tons of Mics, Pedal Steel/ Dobro/ Acoustics/ Mandolin, Apogee Duet 2, LOTS of other stuff!

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Both!! I use a mix of both in almost every project I do. Sometimes you need a piece of hardware for what you're doing, but a lot of times digital plugins work better for what you need. I don't use "templates", and am always trying new things to get the sound I want for the project.

  5. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  6. A: I promise I will do my best to find the sound YOU want, and not try to put my mark on it as a player. I listen and work with the artist/ producer and won't stop until we have exactly what you want.

  7. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  8. A: I always ask for at least a couple reference tracks that you think fit the style of what you're going for.

  9. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  10. A: Matches Water Purifier Fishing Pole Swiss Army Knife Gibson J45

  11. Q: How would you describe your style?

  12. A: I love adding the "frosting" on top of the cake. By that I mean instruments like Pedal Steel and Dobro, which add a sweet layer on top of the track you've already worked hard to make. I aim for tasteful and stylistic parts and will never sound "showy". It's always about the song for me and not about the individual parts. It's ALL about the groove. Whether it's a country/ folk track or a pop/rock track, I'll find the sound/ style you want and work to make that come out.

  13. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  14. A: Don't overuse compression/ effects, or over-complicate parts. And don't record in a vaccuum. Meaning, don't isolate parts and make them sound the best they can on their own. This will actually make the recording worse. When mixing a project, all that matters is how the tracks sound together. Also, don't be afraid to try different/ weird things. If you have a hip-hop track and think pedal steel would sound cool on it, let's do it!! That's more than one tip, but there you go....

  15. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  16. A: Country, Indie, Pop

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

  18. A: As a player, I feel like my strongest asset is arranging/ coming up with the right parts for a song. If you have something that you think needs something and can't figure out what it is, I will work to find the right part to fit it. Whether that's some shiny pedal steel guitar parts on top of your track, or some dobro for a swampier sound, or rhythm acoustic guitar to glue the track together, I'll work to make your track sound the best it can. The parts/ mixes you get from me will always be top studio quality and I will work as hard/ long on a project as I need to until you're happy with it. I will do as many revisions on a project that you want until we get it right where you want it.

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

  20. A: I'm a Session Musician offering Pedal Steel Guitar, Dobro, Mandolin, and Acoustic Guitar tracks for your projects. I'm also a mixing engineer and offer very competitive pricing for mixing full projects. I also am available to build full instrumental tracks. This includes arrangements, performing, recording, and mixing an entire song from scratch. You send me a guitar/ vocal or piano/ vocal demo of your song, and I'll take it from there. Revisions are free until you're happy with it!

  21. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  22. A: I just finished an album for Nashville based Country/ rock artist Parker McKay- EP I did the Production, Mixing, Arrangements, Guitars (Ac. and El.), Piano.

  23. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  24. A: I'm on the road a few days a week with Warner Brothers Country Artist Jana Kramer (Pedal steel, dobro, acoustic gtr), as well as always working on lots of projects in Nashville. I do session work often as well as mixing full tracks/ albums.
