Sam has always gone above and beyond to make his mixes sound amazing. He knows how to craft a song and give it the right energy and clarity. We began working together over 12 years ago and I can honestly say that every project has exceeded my expectations. Sam has also been generous enough to share his studio knowledge which has significantly influenced me as an artist and producer. Your music is in good hands with this guy!
Sam is the most skilled and intuitive mixing engineer I’ve worked with in my 28 years of recording and production experience! He has produced and mixed over 50 clients of mine, spanning all genres and vocal styles, and always exceeds their expectations. I also want to point out that Sam has a fantastic ability to communicate and execute each artists’ musical vision. I believe this is partially due to his egoless approach to listening and researching each clients needs and goals as a priority in his process. Thank you Sam!
I have worked with Sam since 2008 and every time we work together, besides it ALWAYS sounding beyond expectations, we’ve also become dear friends. Not something you can always say. His ear for melody and arrangement are not to be underestimated. He is gifted in the sense that he is actually willing to understand the vision of the artist, (a problem in a lot of engineer/producers, I feel), and will work tirelessly to give the artist what they set out to create. I cannot recommend him enough.
I’ve worked with Sam on many projects over the past few years and he consistently delivers radio ready mixes that sound great in any listening environment. He’s an incredibly musical mix engineer who’s instincts are usually right on. I highly recommend using him for your mixing needs!!
Sam is simply the best. We’ve done several EPs with Sam... everything from full-on production to stripped down tunes, to even live recordings. He’s got a great ear and brings a fresh take on the production side. His mixes always elevate the song to the next level. And a bonus- he’s one of the nicest and easiest people to work with!!
I work with Sam all the time. He always provides a professional atmosphere and fantastic results. His clients always walk away happy, and have glowing reviews about his mixes and production.
