One consistent factor in my services is providing a modern, cutting edge, and experimental approach to music making.
Hi there. I'm a producer/mixing engineer/film composer from Austin, TX. In 2018 I was able to further my skills by working under producer/engineer Stefan Macarewich. During my apprenticeship, I assisted with recordings for artists such as Wallows, Reignwolf, Hunny, and more.
In my short, but ample career since then, I have been able to provide production & mixing work for artists across all genres and have composed original music for various short films and documentaries.
With my services, you can be assured that I will always serve your vision while emphasizing a left field approach that I love to use in my own work. I also take pride in discussing at length how I can accomplish the artists' vision to the best of my ability.
Some of my favorite bands: Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Animal Collective, LCD Soundsystem

I reached out to Ernesto when I noticed our overlap in influences: John Hopkins, Brian Eno, Sigur Ros, Crystal Castles... I originally hired him to mix a song, but quickly realized I wanted to work more closely with him on production. He helped me realize something beyond the vision I had for my my music, bringing his own creative prowess to the table while ensuring my vision was intact... I couldn't be happier with the way these tracks turned out!
I contacted Ernesto to help me finish and mix a song with a lot of specifications, different elements and moving parts, and he came through big time! Great communication, attention to detail, and creative problem-solving skills. Highly recommended!
Ernesto is a true professional with a great ear. He was very patient with us while we were nitpicking, and his only goal was to make this mix be the best it could possibly be. He will definitely be mixing/mastering our whole album!
A truly talented and creative musician, producer, and engineer. Prior to working with Ernesto we'd only ever done bedroom recordings and working with him allowed us to fully realize and scale to life our endeavors. His equipment is professional and varied; though we'd brought a plethora of our own, more often than not we found ourselves grabbing for something from his shelves to help diversify and push our sound. When it came time to make the hard creative decisions or rewrite a melody for the purpose of the song, his advice and skillful ear was indispensable. A true joy to work with.
Ernesto was a godsend for our project. We came to him with no prior studio experience and hoping to record an EP; he was hands on in his approach and efficient in his turnaround, offering vital feedback and input at every step in the process and still enabling us to release our project on a tight timeline. The EP that he tracked, mixed, and mastered for us is pure quality. It's a daunting experience entering the studio as an untrained musician, but Ernesto made it an exceedingly worthwhile and fun endeavor and I would urge anyone to take advantage of his unique and professional talent.
A fantastic composer. Lightning quick with ideas and super receptive to direction + very collaborative. Ernesto took what I was looking for in a score and elevated it far beyond my expectations. Now when I show the film everyone asks me about the music! A real talent. We mixed different genres and tones throughout my film, and Ernesto was able to deftly tackle each new sound with ease. I will most certainly be working with him again.
After dealing with a composer who couldn’t deliver what I needed, Ernesto was a breath of fresh air. He listened to what I had in mind and took it to the next level. He offered his expertise and creativity and delivered a score for a very personal short film that truly enhanced the entire project. I couldn’t be happier with the product, and Ernesto’s professionalism and ongoing communication made the whole process a breeze. Hire Ernesto, you’ll be glad you did.
Ernesto is the best!! A true talent of his craft that helped me understand my own craft even better!
He produced, mixed, and mastered my single and took it from good to great and then great to amazing. Striking the perfect balance between creative collaborator and hired gun, he showed me ways my track could be better that I never would've been able to find by myself. I am terrible with file transferring and such and he was super patient and supportive.
Great producer, great engineer, great hang: DO NOT SLEEP ON THIS MAN!!!!
Ernesto was the first producer I have ever worked with. We met thru a mutual friend, and once we began working together he took my songs from rough skeletons to fully fleshed out, crisp sounding songs. Everything he suggested was with intent. To make the song more catchy and interesting. I was very happy with the final products. I would definitely work with Ernesto in the future.
I met Ernesto after he produced an album for a close friend of mine. I was impressed watching him work in his studio, seeing his ability to experiment with a variety of styles through a sort of musical intuition.
His sound brought the scenes for my short film to reach new heights, tied everything seamlessly together, and revealed an experience that only music & image could bring. What could have been just another "student film" was transformed into a cinematic experience that shakes you awake and holds you to the very end. I'd totally recommend Ernesto as someone to collab and work with!
Had the pleasure of meeting an ambitious & talented Ernesto in 2019. At that time, I was building a 5-song, hip-hop EP, Labyrinth.
A Houston native, I was surprised in realizing Ernesto’s hip-hop savvy surpassed my own. This man listens to everything. What’s more is he isn’t afraid to dive into the genres you’re experimenting with. He doesn’t ride waves; he makes them.
Nesto enjoys a challenge, and he loves the creative process. Get you a man who can do all the above. Or better yet, collab with Ernesto Grey. I encourage you to do so while his rate is still so affordable.
