Jason McDonald on SoundBetter

I am a composer, producer, and engineer with a passion for creating innovative, thought-provoking music. I love an adventurous approach and have built up a diverse catalog of releases and collaborations, spanning everything from progressive rock and synth pop to traditional church music.

I've worked with nationally and internationally successful artists as well as countless local and independent talents, in a variety of genres. I am a multi-instrumentalist with a solid understanding of music theory and I approach all projects with a balance of technical proficiency, musicality, obsessive attention and an experimental mindset. I've spent over 10 years working as a producer and engineer on albums by artists including experimental electronic project Cassandra, synth pop group Los Tajinitos, grunge band Mercury in Retrograde, electronic prog-rock band The Glacial Drift, indie pop Dark Archer, and Seattle's University Presbyterian Cathedral Choir.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
