Producer for indie pop/rock.
Hi, I'm Keith and I'm a music producer.
Simply put, it is my job to bring your musical creations to life. I take you through the process of music production from inception to finished product, filling any of the necessary roles along the way, including but not limited to:
As a film scoring student at Berklee College of Music, I learned the vital skill of taking direction from clients to collaborate in a way that serves the art and the needs of the client, not my ego. This means that I will probe to discover what your desired outcome for the piece of music is and then work to turn the sounds in your head into something tangible which you can share with the world.
I've been involved in many genres and had experience with all sorts of instrumentation, though the music that has been my primary focus with clients fits under the broad umbrella of indie pop/rock.
Enough about me. I look forward to hearing about YOUR musical project. Let's create something amazing together!

Keith is a dream to work with. From the very first contact he was professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. I look forward to every new song we work on because I know we will get the best production, sound, and service every time. He's a complete powerhouse: vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, arranger, mixing and mastering engineer. I am completely impressed with his talents and team player attitude. I wished I worked with more people like him, thanks Keith!
Working with Keith was a pure joy. He and I clicked right away and our styles seemed to blend nicely. I submitted my demos and we talked about ideas and direction for the songs. Keith and I worked on 3 songs together and each track ended up so animated and alive far beyond anything I could have done on my own. He really has a unique musical mind and way of bringing tracks to life and I would certainly recommend working with him if you get the opportunity.
Interview with Keith Elliott Music Production
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: A majority of the time, clients will bring me a demo (work-tape) version of their song and we'll talk about what they were aiming for with the song. If they don't provide references, I'll usually ask for a couple so that we can get it in the ballpark right away. I'll then complete the entire instrumental production, incorporate their final vocals, adding background vocals if desired, and mix it. I deliver a master for the full mix, instrumental mix, and stems to make everything easier for if and when they get a sync placement and the instrumental or stems are needed.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I'd say that what I'm best at is being able to interpret the artist's vision for their song and shed light on all of the best parts, creating a finished production that does exactly what they wanted it to do. That's the type of feedback I tend to get from clients.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually find myself working on indie rock/pop stuff, but I do dabble in more straight-ahead pop and I have a background in film scores and progressive rock.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Figure out what emotion/feeling is meant to be evoked by a song. Every decision you make in the production process should take that into consideration. Evoking an emotional response, be it excitement, sadness, anger, whatever is what music is all about to me.
