Hello! My name is Kia Shavon aka The Mix Artist. I am an audio engineer with 9 years of working experience, a Bachelor of Science in Music Engineering Technology and most importantly, passion for and pride in what I do! As a musician (classically trained percussionist), I understand and the art of music/mixing as well as the science.
I offer mixing, pitch correction & editing, drum replacement, audio restoration and selective recording sessions.
Mixing - the ART of blending many individual tracks into one harmonious body of work.The artist is a messenger, the song their story. My job is not to alter this story and make it my own, but to work WITH the artist and feel where they’re coming from as well as what they want the listener to experience, then use my creativity and expertise to present the best possible work.
Vocal Tuning and Editing - Don't waste valuable studio time trying to correct improper vocals during recording and mix sessions. Most vocals released today have had tuning work completed prior to the track being mixed. Even if pitch is not a problem, basic vocal tweaking will tighten and fatten vocals to get the sound you need to make your song stand out.
-Tune your vocals to the key of the song
-Reduce sibilance (harsh "sss" sounds) and plosives (popping p's and b's)
- Create background harmonies
Reformatting / Restoration / Forensic Audio
- Convert your vinyl and cassettes to digital media.
-Remove hum, noise, crackle, etc...from dialogue.
-Digital audio enhancement, audio authentication, and transcription
Understanding costs of creating can be expensive for Indie artists, I try my best to work with any reasonable budget. Contact me and let's get started!!

Reviews of The Mix Artist
Kia is awesome! She fixed an issue in my vocal track (feedback from the mic) that I was told couldn't be fixed. She not only reduced the 'static' sound, but was able to get rid of it completely! She's a genius! I'm so thankful that I didn't have to record the vocals over again. Thanks, Kia, for working your magic!! :)
Kia is amazing! I've worked with Kia for years. She has a great vibe!
