Mixing Engineer based out of Toronto, Canada. Experience includes Jimmy Eat World, Colin James, Arkells, July Talk and many more. 15 years of audio experience.
Quality over quantity is the philosophy I use to govern all of my work. Even in this day and age of impressive technologies and globalization, word of mouth is still widely considered to be one of the most effective marketing strategies. Therefore, I conclude that my success as an audio engineer is directly entwined with my reputation. I need you to help me spread that reputation, but for that to happen, you need to be happy with the final mixes. Therefore, that's the goal. Quality first, always.

Terms of Service
I prefer to work on a "per song" or "per project" basis. This encourages creativity and quality without the burden of time considerations or "clock watching".

Quality sound. Great communication. And very timely. Will solicit services again.
So happy with the final result of my song. Will definitely be coming for more mixing by him in the future.
I worked with Jay the past year at Corus Toronto. Terrific producer and musician. Has a great ear for sound design and has the awards to prove it. Great personality and easy to work with. I totally endorse his work.
I've been watching, and listening, to Jay's evolution as a mixing engineer for 15 years. His development has been both meteoric and impressive.
While he has an exceptional grasp of the arsenal of plugins within his Pro Tools rig - which is all well and good - Jay's true prowess and talent lie in his ability to hear, feel & interpret music ...to bring soundscapes to life.
Worked with Jay in the past...Very easy to work with..And really enjoyed his mix...Highly recommended.
I just recently finished a project with Jay and he was fantastic!
He was extremely quick on getting me back the final mixes and I was overjoyed with the quality, sound and production level!
He hit the nail on the head with what I had envisioned for my project.
Worked with Jay on a recent project and was very pleased with his work. Great ear for detail, delivered on-time and was really easy to communicate with. Would highly recommend.
Love love love working with Jay. He is amazing! I have recorded everything from a rush demo for a pitch in 24 hrs, to a full on soon to be released EP and he always finds a way to make me look at things in a new and exciting light that I just wouldn't have thought of myself. Upfront, honest, creative, hilarious and always professional!!The best!!
Recording with Jay was a wonderful experience. He was professional, very insightful in bringing out the best performance and added the necessary edits and harmonies. The recording process was so pleasant my accompanist requested to work with him for his album. Jay's years of experience is apparent in the quality of his work and is a top choice!
Jay recorded one of my acoustic original songs, and he was awesome to work with! It was such a fun session, and he knew how to get a good performance out of me, which is one of the hardest to find qualities in a recording engineer. He guided me to get creative in the studio, and it came out sounding like gold! I would love to work with Jay again.
Jay digs into the tracks and works magic with every session. I always look forward to hearing his work. Great guy...great work!
Jay has a really amazing ear. We have worked on several songs together that I have written lyrically but needed help with arrangement and composition. There have been times when I have been set to silence listening to the mastered version of one of my songs because to me, Jay brought my vision to life.
I’ve worked with Jay on a number of music projects. Without exception Jay has always made my music better. He hears the soul of a song and brings it out both artistically and sonically. His attention to detail coupled with his love of craft make him an obvious choice for anyone looking to raise the quality of their recorded music.
I'm a voice actor who has worked with Jay on numerous projects. He is my immediate go to for any sound question or issue. He understands the science of frequencies, their interactions, results from any applied effect, etc. His mixing work on my trailer/promo material is world class. Easily among the best in the world, and a kind person as well!
