Allow me to use my musical creativity and experience in music production, songwriting, and arranging to help turn your song into a more professional-sounding, complete song that you are confident with and ready to showcase to the world!
Hello and thank you for visiting my profile. Like many among us, I fell in love with music at the age of 15, quickly started a band and began my journey as a songwriter and musician. After playing locally with the band for several years, I studied audio engineering in Toronto, learning from industry veterans. I later earned a bachelor's degree in Music Composition and Production from Humber College in Toronto. I've been fortunate enough to work with some wonderfully individuals. My music has been featured nationally on CBC television in Canada.
I also worked in radio for a number of years as a production engineer, working with voice-over talent, helping to produce radio ads for on-air broadcasts.
When it comes to producing and mixing your song, I will consider ask you about other mixes and artists you like or want to try to replicate. We'll work together, over 3 revisions, to capture the right tone, feel, and energy of the song you hear in yo
-Editing of tracks as needed
-Adding additional instrumentation, parts, arrangements
-Recording acoustic guitar, backing piano
-A complete mix of your song resulting in a radio-ready mix
You can trust that I am detail-oriented, hardworking, and never put out a mix that I'm not satisfied with. I'd love to work with other artists to help polish their mixes and refine their music!

Interview with Dave G
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a critical and discerning ear, in terms of mix, production, and composition, as well as my years of experience as a musician, songwriter, and engineer.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to get familiar with the project first and get the project setup in my DAW. I like to have all the requirements known so I can work without too many hiccups in the process. I like to stay communicative with the client so we're all on the same page. I work efficiently but carefully, not wanting to waste time or bark up the wrong tree for too long.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a pretty simple home studio setup, with a Windows 10 Laptop, running Reaper as my DAW currently, a Yamaha-P85 keyword, an M-Audio MIDI controller, a Focusrite Scarlet 2i2, and a bargain condenser mic I also play guitar so have a Taylor and Cherry Sunburst Les Paul laying around.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm inspired by anyone who is passionate about what they do and turn that inspiration into something new and interesting, regardless of the style or genre.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: At the moment, I'm doing a lot of audio editing and audio production for podcasts, spoken audio recordings, and the like. I take unprocessed audio and turn it into something that can compete with what you might hear on your favorite podcasting platform.
