I'm an Avant-Garde, Indie-Rock Producer who's studied 60's-70's record production. My services are for anyone looking to give your music a more artistic production style with class & character to support your own creative individuality. I've recorded & produced my debut album Mystic Seers which has recently received a four star review in SHINDIG!
I'm here to provide my 20+ years of experience to help musicians who want to explore & make artistic statements through record production. Within the realms of my Mixing, Music Production, & Engineering specialties; I have a passion for honing in on the overall feel and vibe of the recording by shaping & reinventing your tones. Making sure that the finished product will sound complete with YOUR unique stamp and not be another ordinary hack job of something from the past!
I also specialize in producing entire tracks from scratch, as well as providing instruments such as Drums (NO run-of-the-mill tones!), Bass (Paul McCartney/James Jamerson stylings), Guitar, Vocals & Keys recorded in a top-notch home studio on top classic gear. I will work with you to make sure you're pleased with your work! I only care about music that excites me, it can be anywhere from the primitive sounds of Led Zeppelin II to 80's Japanese Ambient Music to Blue Note Jazz. I'm looking for the magic.
I do a variety of styles, but specialize in classic rock especially The Beatles, The Beach Boys, (Brian Wilson styled harmony arrangements), 60's Motown, Psychedelic Rock, 90's Grunge, Shoegaze, 70's Singer/Songwriter, Bossa-Nova, New Wave Experimental Punk, Krautrock, 80's Pop, & also up for providing left-field style productions to expand your sound into new lands! Hit me up! -Derek
