Stephen Ellestad on SoundBetter

Hi, I'm Stephen. Good to meet you! I am a producer, engineer & session musician. Let's make some music together. In addition to my production work, I teach audio engineering and music production at Pinnacle College in Rancho Cordova, CA.

I offer a range of services & flexible, custom pricing. As a producer, I strive to work with you to realize your vision in the most creative & effective manner to fit your project needs, budget and timeframe. I specialize in creative music mixing, while also offering mastering services, session work, and composition as required. I can provide ISRC codes.
My primary instrument is bass (electric, fretless and upright) but I offer session work on piano, organ, electric and acoustic guitar, tenor guitar, banjo, and ukulele.
In addition to my studio, I have 24/7 access to multiple studios and an extensive gear locker at Pinnacle College, allowing me to provide full band tracking in a large live room, analog console mixing, surround mixing and re-amping services at very reasonable rates.

Send me a note through the contact button above.
