John Scovell on SoundBetter

Hey you! I am a music producer from Boston with 10+ years of experience. I love enhancing audio and experimenting with sound design, specifically with noise and saturation. Let's make something great together!

Listen here: you need drive. Songwriting and composition is my absolute passion, and having this strong foundation allows me to create music to your expectations. Balance and impact are what I strive for. In addition, success is achieved through collaboration and mutual understanding! We gotta work together to make something awesome. Email, phone calls, and video chats all work perfectly.

PRODUCING:
I will write and record a beat, guitar, bass, vocals, synthesizers/keys, any-and-all instruments via expansive sound libraries. You name it, we can make it!

For style and genre, I am ready to do it all! Rock, EDM, Pop, Hip-Hop, Metal, Funk, New Age, Classical, Experimental: LET'S DO IT!

MIXING:
My first and ultimate goal is to enhance your song and to achieve amazing balance all across the board. The main three components of the mix: the Volume, the Dimension, and the Spatial Location. In regards to those, I can make your track BUMP. EQ and Compression are my loves and passions. FX and Reverb are my playground. Automation is the Holy Grail.

MASTERING:
Your song needs to compete with professional productions! I can get that volume and that smack right where it needs to be. Forget about meters and LUFS and Db's: when it sounds right, we win.

    John is amazing at what he does, and he can do a lot of things. I recorded an album with him and he took me through the entire process and helped me understand all the steps. I had a dozen songs and vague ideas. He helped make this into a full album, professionally recorded, produced, and distributed. I never thought I'd be on Spotify, much less sound this good!

    He is very technically skilled, but even more importantly he is honest, acts with integrity, and puts the artists first.

    John Scovell has been knee-deep in music work over at record label/publishing company, Moobly Krew. He formed it in late 2019 in his one-bedroom apartment in Boston, MA. Since then, it has grown considerably! The Krew now houses five unique Artists, all of which work hand-in-hand with Scovell to achieve their visions.
