I have a studio at Revolver Recordings in Los Angeles and lots of *gasp* real instruments! Between myself and my small team of co-creators we have the gear and musical ability to do pretty much anything you need. We make real, live records from start to finish for ourselves; we'd like to help you do the same.
Our services include, but are not limited to:
-Guitar (electric & acoustic)
-Keys/Synths (all sorts)
-Just about anything else with strings: banjo, uke, mandolin...
We make a lot of different music, from sound design & film to singer-songwriter to good old rock n roll. Musically, I am partial to Bruce Springsteen, Ryan Adams, Delta Spirit, and Kings of Leon, amongst many others. Delta Spirit's "Into the Wide" and KOL's "Come Around Sundown" are the best-sounding records I've ever heard.
We have plenty of equipment in house -- so much that there isn't enough space on this page for a comprehensive list! If you have any questions about our gear or other services that aren't listed above, please feel free to reach out so I can fill you in on the details!

Interview with Jacob Williams
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My drive to make good music. My desire is to make the best thing I've ever heard and I will do whatever it takes, for however long it takes, to make something good.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Whatever sounds right. Both have their pros and cons.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I get to create and help others create something that connects people in a way that transcends language. Music has the power to move people in a unique way and I am constantly grateful to be a music creator.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: The song is all that matters. Great production won't save a bad song and bad production won't (usually) ruin a great song. And if a part sounds cool but doesn't elevate the song then it isn't right.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When recording/arranging, I like to record with eq, compression, and maybe certain effects I know I want to keep. I try to make decisions on the way in. I think 90% of a record is captured at the moment of recording- from the performance to the gear used to the way its recorded.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Producers/engineers: Jacquire King, Daniel Lanois, Mike Crossey Musicians: Bruce Springsteen, Matt Vasquez, Bono, Ryan Adams, Paul Meany
