Eric Dash Friedman on SoundBetter

Hey my name is Eric! I'm a songwriter, music producer, engineer, and session guitar player based in Los Angeles. I've worked with production and engineer professionals from Adam Hawkins (Machine Gun Kelly, grandson, Twenty One Pilots) to Jack Joseph Puig (John Mayer, The Black Crowes, Weezer). I am a very capable and driven professional!

I'm offering music production, mixing, songwriting, session guitarist, and vocalist services for artists that are in need!

I have a full studio based in the Hollywood Hills which is serene and capable of creating the highest quality productions.

I've worked in the past with very well-known producers and I understand how to get the job done for any style of work. I am a multi-instrumentalist, however I do believe in hiring other session players if it calls for it.

My peers that I work with regularly have work with artists such as Charlie Puth, Bruno Mars, Ariana Grande, Drake, Travis Barker, Jxdn, Taylor Swift, Noah Cyrus, Air Supply, and more.
