Slide guitar, Mixing Engineer

Kevin on SoundBetter

The only place on earth where you can get something Good, Fast, and Cheap. I have zero Grammys to my knowledge, I don't have Spotify so not sure on the plays number either. But I rip on guitar and have good ears and I will make your music sound great for an affordable price.

I will supply various styles of guitar playing. My main styles are blues, rock, and mainly slide guitar. I will also mix your music if that's what you need. I have good mixing gear, it's not incredible and I haven't worked with Kayne, but it's good and your music will sound fantastic and the way you like it and it will be done quickly since I only work on one project at a time and it will be economical. Holler at me for pricing but generally I do either guitar or mixing for 200 per song.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

Interview with Kevin

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: Eugene Snowden's forth coming solo album. I wrote half the songs, arranged the songs, played on and produced the songs for one of my favorite artists.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Irrelevant. in a week, this answer will change and I'm not updating this every week.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: I'm new here so I have no friends.

  12. A: Creationism

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: How much? For What?

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: Play video games when mot working.

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: To hear their music or at least know their vision. If they don't have one, ask other questions until vision becomes apparent.

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Holler at me, see what's what.

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: A Marshall Full Stack because it's got enough wood to build a shelter. A Jackson Electric guitar because the neck can be used like an axe to chop down stuff and guitar strings are great for making traps. A set of congos so I can play them naked like Matthew McConaughey. A drum set. The metal symbals would be useful and the rest is good fire wood. A ukelele to play Somewhere Over The Rainbow as I starve to death.

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: Jerry Reed. RIP. I figure even if the session doesn't go well, it will be a really funny hang.

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: Take a step away from a mix or performance after you've done the initial work before you critique yourself. The way you think something should sound will still be fresh in your head when things are that fresh. It will cloud your perception. Walk away, forget about it, come back later, even if it's only 30 minutes and you'll hear what you've done much more accurately. Then you can make proper adjustments.

  37. Q: What's your typical work process?

  38. A: Client conversation. Get other examples of similar sounds. In the case of guitars, I'll play and give a few options. In the case of a mix, I give one mix. Client discussion. Revisions. 3 revisions and then final product delivery in whatever format the client needs.
