Lavender Lane Production on SoundBetter

I'm a producer, mixer, and session player. I'll help you produce amazing music with feeling!

Hey, My name is Curtis and I live in Denver producing and playing music full time. I love my work and I love going skiing and climbing and being outdoors.

Production:

Let me know what your project is and where you want to go with it. What is the vision, who are your inspirations, what story and emotions are you trying to tell? That helps me get a vibe on where you're coming from and how I should approach the sounds, playing, and style for different projects. Then we can dive in and start passing ideas back and forth until we find something inspiring.

Mixing:

I focus on bringing out the feel and emotion of the track. My main goal in the mix is to catch the listener and take them for a ride. I mix on analog gear for a big studio sound.

I’d love to have all your references, ideas, rough mix, and notes on the track.
-Individual or group stems for the song.
-Keep any processing that you like/is adding to the vision of the song. Usually the artist vision is right on.
-First mix turnaround 2-5 days
-Free revisions

Session Playing:

I play a pretty mean guitar and bass (they are my first instruments) 15+years. And I get by pretty well on the keys as well. I can program drums or do live drums down the street at the A room of Side 3 studios.

I’m looking forward to working with you!

Cheers,
Curtis

    Working with Lavender was a breeze. He's very easy to talk to and really takes his time to translate your opinions to the track and make the correct alterations. He is very professional and easy going, and even though my deadline was close, he made me feel like I was in good hands. I would most definitely recommend him!

If you aren't sure in which direction you want to take with your mix, he will act as your guide and work with 24/7 along the way. Not only is his mixing high quality and professional, but the prices he offer makes it extremely affordable. 10/10 well done.

    Lavender is without a doubt, one of my favorite people that I have ever worked with in the music industry.

    He is very very good at listening to what you want done and executing on your input and guidance. More importantly, he is able to provide you with stellar production material.

    While working with Lavender he was providing me with constant project updates daily and constantly moving the project forward.

    I could keep going on and on about him, but I've reached my review word count limit!

    I had the great privilege of working with Lavender on my track. The results were outstanding! the sound was incredibly detailed, it through me back when I heard all the instruments and vocals as clear and tight as I could image them. Communication with Lavender was also great. Fast, approachable, great feedback and enthusiasm that charged the project forward. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a great engineer to further sculpt and refine their craft. Many thanks

I could go on and on and type everything but we would be here for hours. But all in all hes a really good brother and he responds fast too. Wish he was closer just to get him something to eat and drink shake his hand and say AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME! You wont be disappointed!

    Curtis is a diligent soundsmith, a strong musician and an impassioned artist all at once. Whether he’s producing, playing or creating, he brings his whole soul to his work. It’s always a gratifying experience to work with Curtis and to share his truly unique vision.

    Curtis is one of the most intuitive musicians I've worked with. He has a sophisticated sense of melody along with an awareness of what works, what hooks a listener and ultimately helps to build an audience. As a producer, Curtis has a profound musical vision and the engineering skills to back it up. Most importantly, he works efficiently and keeps the good vibes going.

Interview with Lavender Lane Production

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

  2. A: What feeling are you trying to convey? What textures do you want? what are the visuals? What instruments do you want? What artists do you like? What are your goals?

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: I'm currently at my home studio. I have the latest versions of Protools and Ableton that I do most of my work in. Sometimes logic. For mixing I have industry standard converters, a Dangerous Music convert 2 system, PMC monitors, and Reference II level electrical outlets. I use some of the best sounding gear available. It's really a joy to work from home. I have it all vibed out to my personal preference, I have all my musical toys within reach and I can just relax and work on the music and not be stressed out about an hourly studio rate.

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

  6. A: Zareaux Productions. I have worked with Nick on multiple tracks and he is exceptional at what he does.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: I think both are cool. I’m a fan of mostly digital and finishing the chain with one or two very high end analog pieces to smooth things out and add vibe and character.

  9. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  10. A: I try to bring honesty to a song. I try and find a feeling we're going for and make it true to me. I find that if I can do this, It usually translates well.

  11. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  12. A: All types!

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

  14. A: A quick an easy workflow will save sooo much time. I have all my stuff plugged in and micd, so if I hear a part I can just pick up an instrument and lay it down. Too many times I've simply givin up on an idea just because I had to get up a put a mic up. Make it as easy as you can for yourself! Also, don't judge yourself, just put it down. Trust your instinct. You are enough.

  15. Q: How would you describe your style?

  16. A: I like to serve the song so my style conforms a lot. That being said I'd like to think of it as tasteful, in the pocket, and soulful.

  17. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  18. A: Probably communication and punctuality. I like to be there for artist and be present and just have my stuff together so we don't have to worry about that and just focus on the music.
