Alec Boyd on SoundBetter

I’m an engineer with 10 years of experience and has worked on Grammy-nominated projects. My ideal scenario is to partner with bands, so I can apply tasteful master and elevate the song’s essence. Using my experience as a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, I view my work as a balance of creativity, technical, and musical skills.

I could tell you how I have 10 years of experience in recording studios or how many Grammy-nominated albums I've worked on or how many streams my mixes have gotten, but there are a million other people on here who will do that (and who, I have no doubt, will do great work) if that's what you're looking for.

Personally, I'm way more invested in storytelling and making sure working together is a good fit, which I just don't think numbers will ever be able to demonstrate.

Like any other engineer, music has been a passion my whole life. But what I really love is taking it a step further, digging deep into how the creative process works, and integrating what I've learned about creativity into the music I work on.

So often, I see people who can't separate their ego from the art and who let that cloud their judgment. But for me, it's essential to remove myself from the art and consider what that particular song needs in order to elevate it to its highest potential. That's where the magic really happens, when you listen to what the song wants, not what you want.

On top of my mastering work, I also run a series on YouTube called Songwriting with Alec. In my videos, I show the step-by-step process of writing a song to show there are no secrets to making music.

If this resonates with you, I'd love to set up time to chat.
