Producer, engineer, mixer, drummer, guitarist, bassist. I can holler pretty well too if you dig that.
I've been involved in music for over twenty years as a multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer, engineer and mixer. I'm currently taking classes in mixing and production at SF State, working on my solo project Wrack, playing bass in my post-punk band Thought Leaders, and working with clients via Soundbetter. I love mixing and would love to help get your songs or record mixed. I'm also available as a session musician on bass, guitar, and drums. I can scream/growl if you like; check out Wrack for an example of my vocals. My specialty is heavy rock/metal, but I'm able to collaborate on just about any genre of popular music.

3 ReviewsEndorse Tyler Cox
I’m a fan of Tyler’s drumming just based off the work he’s done in his own bands. So i was certain he could handle my project. I love his angular, synchopated style and his ability to internalize and emphatise with my track and vision. He’s done a lot for me to realize the vision for my track, which was particularly mechanical/counterintuitive. I especially appreciate that he’s dived deep into the track and rehearsed to prefect the take. He’s got knowledge of music production so tracks are clean
very talented artist . I was looking for a different feel for my new album and this guy nailed it down perfectly even with a very complicated song. Good communication and very easy to work with.
Tyler is absolute talanted and advanced musician (one could say "jack of all trades"). He did the brilliant bass line and great mixing. The song was not so simple (a lot of instrumental layers and tons of vocal tracks) but he hadled it easy and fast! I have no patient to collaborate with this guy again! Counting the days...
Interview with Tyler Cox
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I added a bass track and mixed a killer song called "Take It" by Jim AvivA. Look for it on YouTube.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Remote mixing of songs and records is most common. I've also performed and recorded drums and electric bass tracks for songs that usually have programmed or MIDI placeholders.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I just finished mixing my band Thought Leaders' new LP. Out this summer. I'm working on more solo metal material, and doing as much mixing for clients as I possibly can.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Typically in the realm of heavy and weird. But there's a great intersection there with the beautiful. I like dynamics.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I have a strong ear for detail and the tenacity to ensure the entire sonic picture is within the bounds of intention.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Lewis at OwlCove Productions taught me a lot about mixing and the business in general. Great guy.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I've been called "meticulous." I'm cool with that.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I like artists who learn to take control of their own sound and extend their sonic vision into the Production sphere. Leon Macey, Jamie Saint Merat and Misha Mansoor are good examples.
