What do you bring to a song?
I want my mixes to be unique. I always try to find some way to improve the song in my own special way, like by adding an additionnal background vocal for instance. Of course the client is always free to say he does not like my addition and ask to remove it !

As a musician I particularly admire Neal Morse, Steven Wilson and Daniel Gildenlow. As a mixing engineer I love Steven Wilson's work, as well as Rich Mouser's.
