Guitarist, Arranger, Producer
Been in music 30+ years. I have a music degree and love the recording process.
Would bring the best from your music. Very strong in communication and can share your vision through your music. I have the belief that less is more when it comes to recording.
I can add guitars(acoustic or electric) and other stringed instruments. I can take you through all aspects of the recording process, from a 2 track vocal and instrument to a finished cd.
Using a mixture of analog and digital the music can be captured naturally.
Tell me about your project and how I can help, through the 'Contact' button above.
