Bo Bodnar on SoundBetter

Hey there! My goal is simple: to make your song sound like the song you want it to be.

Over the last ten years tinkering and toying around recording, I've had the pleasure to work with some amazing artists on a variety of projects ranging from your standard vocal sessions to your large orchestras, and all the way into the weird and bizarre. I've got experience recording in world class facilities but also in the likes of garages, basements, and living rooms (which often times can be a much more fun experience).

What excites me is working on the 'song'. Seeing the singers face when they finally figure out the perfect lyric for that second verse. Or the drummer being inspired by the sounds of the construction site outside. Or the band figuring out exactly what's gonna get them that perfect take (double exciting if thats cutting the click track!!!).

Anyways, I want to get you closer not just to what you want your music to sound like but what you want your music to be.

Contact me for any info on mixing, tracking, editing, or producing. I love all sorts of music and love experimenting and pushing boundaries. Let's see where we can take your tunes. Let's see if we can make something special.
