Can you share one music production tip?
Do not record to hot signals! If there is distortion printed to the track it´s almost impossible to rescue a great take. And with todays recording equipment there is no need to record to hot cause the noise floor is so ridiculously low these days.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Soul, Pop, Rock, Country
What's your strongest skill?
I´m time efficient, in a good way.
What do you bring to a song?
My taste and my preferences. But above all, Energy!
What's your typical work process?
If I´m working locally I sit down with the band in their rehearsal space before every recording to get a sense of what they are trying to achieve sonically. Then listen to them play to get a sense of how much heavy lifting I´m required to do.
I believe that communication is vital in all scenarios, so when I´m doing online stuff I want as much feedback as humanly possible during the entire process.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I´m 100% in the box when I´m mixing. When I´m recording I use Neumann mics, Neve Preamps, Urei compressors and a lot of other stuff.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
Well, there are a lot of them! To name a few without any particular order: Simon Phillips, Andrew Scheps, Chris Lord Alge, Michael Brauer, Greg Wells.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
It really depends, one day I can be tracking drums for an upcoming album release and another I can be sitting and mixing someones bedroom recorded Single or EP.
Typically it´s the word of mouth that musicians, publishers and other producers have worked with me in the past and enjoyed it.
