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.
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!
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.
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.

2 ReviewsEndorse John Scovell
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 is the kind of guy you want to work with!
I've had John make make several tracks for me and he always knocks it out of the park! He is super easy to work with. Every time I worked with him he easily understands what I'm going for. He takes feedback well and is good with communication. He is professional and his production skills are incredible. John Scovell is a great guy and if you're looking for someone to work on some music, look no more! Consider hiring John Scovell for your next project.
