Mixing & Losing Grammys

Cian Riordan on SoundBetter

I've mixed lots of stuff -- St. Vincent, Sleater Kinney, Lana Del Rey, Paul McCartney, Wavves, Foxygen, Mini Mansions, Julian Lage, Doyle Bramhall II, etc

I am a mixing engineer by way of record producer. Lucky to have been mentored by the great Eric Valentine.
Please don't hire to make your live band sound like a live band. I like clear, loud, and exciting recordings -- I want your record to be a cinematic experience.

I'm not the cheapest option, but I love people and I love music, and we'll work on your songs until they're finished and you're 100% happy.

Hire me! Or don't!

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.

We revise until we're done. If I feel like you're taking advantage of this, then I'll let you know. But it's never been an issue in my 15 years of mixing.
