Write, Produce, Edit and Mix

Baylii on SoundBetter

Let's work together. I can help no matter what stage of the song you are at. I started from acoustic guitar and vocal and jumped into Pro Tools and Logic. It's about 15 years making records that feel like records. I still play guitar and sing professionally but my PT skills are deadly.

I can hire other musicians if you need but I can also do a lot just from my chair. I grew up around drums and my sample library is pretty insane when it comes to drums and percussion. I am a rhythm first kind of producer. If it feels right than I go after the melody, and than the words. It's a synergy. Everything has to feel right.
