What are you working on at the moment?
I am currently working on a studio album with an up and coming rock band Galleons.
Analog or digital and why?
Both honestly. Analog is very warm and clean. Digital is fast, innovative, and tight. I never limit myself to one thing. Whatever complements the song is what you should use.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
I promise to mix and master your song as if it were my own. I will be honest and constructive to get you were you want to be as well as support and promote your music. I will consult you and actively work to deliver you the sound you are looking for!
What do you like most about your job?
I love being part of an industry of artists. Music is a passion so I never work a day in my life.
Can you share one music production tip?
Don't be afraid to experiment and take your time on tracking. Leave enough headroom for the mix and most of all relax and have fun.
What type of music do you usually work on?
I usually work on rock, hip hop, and R&B
What do you bring to a song?
I bring an Artists like approach. I am a performer myself, so understanding the Art behind music composition helps me understand the creative perfect imperfections in a song most engineers mix out.
What's your typical work process?
Depending on the project I usually start with a Free Consultation. Music is Personal I would not be doing my job right if I don't understand the emotion and meaning behind the song. After the consultation I spend time listening and planning the sound we talked about (unpaid time). After that I will execute the mix and master. I do revisions to help you achieve the best sound possible.
Tell us about your studio setup.
In My studio I work on a mac In Logic Pro X. My Interface is a Focusrite 18i20 and a Focusrite itrack solo (Mobile productions) I also have a Tube Preamp By Art that I run my inputs through. I also have some great plugins I use day to day to achieve unique sounds.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A lot of my inspiration came from Dave Grohl originally. I grew up listening to Nirvana and Foo Fighters, so naturally I looked up to him as a musician. I used to mix my own music and music for friends. After watching Dave Grohl's sound city documentary I really wanted to give back to the industry I grew to love and help other artists grow.
