Nashville based producer, mixing engineer, pro-songwriter
I am a producer, mixing engineer and pro-songwriter based in Nashville TN. I offer various services from co-writing, song production, demo production, and mixing.
Music Production: I have 10+ years of experience producing demos and commercially released recordings. I am a graduate of the music industry arts program (Fanshawe College, London ON) where I majored in recording & music production. I moved to Nashville in '08 where I got my start at Quad Recording Studios.
I believe strongly in pre-production and building a good foundation for the song before we press record in the studio. I am ProTools and Logic savvy and believe in hybrid approaches when using analog and digital recording methods. Being based in Nashville has given me access to the best musicians in the world which are happy to use their talent on your project.
Mixing: you've written your song, you've cut some great tracks in the studio, and now you're looking for someone to mix your masterpiece together.
Songwriting: We're all about collaboration in Nashville, and now a days we don't have to be in Nashville to co-write with writers here. I would love to co-write an idea with you. I charge a flat rate to co-write the song and we split the songwriting & publishing rights 50/50. Once the song is written I will provide a basic acoustic/vocal work tape of the song.
