Liz Maniscalco on SoundBetter

Recent writing & production cuts with Kimbra, Joe Goddard & Flight Facilities have cemented me in the electronic realm as a producer/writer, for labels Future Classic, Toolroom Records & Dim Mak. In 2018 I was a participant at Red Bull Music Academy, Berlin & now reside in NYC working with Grammy Award winning artists + have my own project BRUX.

Having recently relocated from Sydney, Australia I've been active in the music industry as a producer, artist, songwriter and vocalist for 10 years and have multiple artist projects (BRUX, Elizabeth Rose) alongside producing & writing for other artists & company briefs.

My specialty is production and composition within electronic music and I'm a collector of analog synths and hardware - I'm passionate about creating innovative pieces.

I'm also a vocalist, lyricist & DJ and have collaborated with countless award winning artists over the years, giving me the invaluable tools and experience to provide high quality services. I also compose for podcasts, library music, ad work & work with meditation teachers to create & compose for their recordings on Insight Timer. I can offer production, lyric writing & vocals, beats, chords & arrangement sketches & sound design.

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

    It was great working with Liz. She really took the time to understand what we wanted, and her production elevated our track far beyond our expectations. Will definitely be working with Liz again in the future!

    Liz was incredible to work with. She helped me take a song that I had been working on for years that I knew had potential but never quite cracked the code on. After hearing my demo we had a brief conversation and I knew right away, she understood me and the song and had a well of amazing ideas and produced what can only be described as a work of art.

    She was so much fun to collaborate with and definitely look forward to making many more tracks with her in the future!

    Liz is a very talented producer. I loved working with her. She is professional, communicated well, was timely, and helped take my song to the next level. I'm very happy with our completed project, and would 100% work with her again!

    I worked with Liz to help create the 'sound' of my podcast network - Ramaley Media. She listened really well and was super responsive. The jingles and audio she produced was spot on to what I was looking for - even when I pushed for some difficult asks!
    Liz has a great grasp of music and sound. Highly recommend her.

    Working with Liz is a treat. She has a great ear and is one hell of a talented producer, singer and songwriter. In my experience working with her on commercial projects, she has proven to be able to write, produce and deliver the goods and fast. From electronic production to podcasts and film scores, Liz can craft music to a tight or loose brief, and is an absolute well of musical ideas.

    I've been working with Liz as both a producer, songwriter, and vocalist for almost 10 years now. Absolutely one of the finest, most talented human beings in her community. So easy to communicate with, and works fast while bringing something absolutely unique each and every time. Whether you want to go completely left field, or something closer to center, she brings a unique perspective to the creative direction

Interview with Liz Maniscalco

  5. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  10. A: I'm working with a few local US female artists, producing their singles. I'm also finishing up my own releases - an ambient LP and a tonne of fun club/pop tracks.

  11. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  12. A: analog! Analog synths forever! The warmth of these pieces are second to none - it's my goal to one day own an original Yamaha CS-80.

  14. A: That you will have a unique, high - quality result

  19. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  20. A: Moog DFAM, a baby grand piano, speakers, vinyl turntable & Brian Enos "Apollo" LP.

  21. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  22. A: I've been doing this since 2010 - professionally producing, songwriting, performing & singing. I used to have an artist project that was Pop/Rnb and released a number of EPs and an album, over the years collaborating with many incredible artists like Sinden, Cassian, Flight Facilities, Chrome Sparks, Seekae, Tkay & more. In 2016 I put that project to rest and started a new artist project of edgy club music and have been doing it since.

  23. Q: How would you describe your style?

  24. A: Edgy, textural & fresh. I pride myself on choosing sounds that are unique and attention-grabbing. Simple is key.

  33. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  34. A: I feel I bring innovation - I strive for a unique approach in every job I do and this is where I really thrive. Less is more and choosing the right sounds intentionally is super important rather than over-producing.

  35. Q: What's your typical work process?

  36. A: I love to firstly connect and communicate with clients via a Zoom meeting before starting on the job, so I can get a feel for their energy & intentions behind the project. I think it's super important to connect on a human level and build rapport, then I'll work remotely and check in with the client along the way on Zoom as the work progresses.

  37. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  38. A: I have a home studio setup where I produce in Ableton Live. I have my growing collection of analog gear - Moog One, Little Phatty, Moog DFAM, Arturia Microbrute, Teenage Engineering OP1, pocket piano, korg monotron & Korg volca fm. I have a few different vocal recording mics - some that are lo fi for the style ( Akai M-8) & hi fi for clarity (AT4050).

  39. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  40. A: Pharell is one of my biggest inspirations - his creative vision is so innovative and the way he fuses genres and sounds is incredible. Also inspired greatly by The Chemical Brothers, The Knife & Bjork.
