Whether its urban,pop,pop R&B or pop rock this market is my concentration. I provide a full production service. From tracking vocals,writing top line and music production these services are what I can render. My idea of a producer isn't just about the "beat" but its about the over all song. This is very important to me as a producer and I strive to create great songs.

Lucius did two projects with me as an artist. His production is outstanding, amazing quality, great songwriting, he comes up with fresh ideas, he’s always ahead of time, fully aware of whats popular right now. He’s always well prepared & on time, very responsible, great with planning and besides all that fun to work with! A very inspiring creative person. The EP's had great success in Switzerland.
Awesome producer and even better guy. If you're looking for someone to help make a hit, you've come to the right place!
Working with Lucius was such a pleasure. My project came out great! I will definitely be working with him again for my next EP.
I have known Lucius aka Lou, for over a decade. Within in that time I've seen the growth from not just production but also his artistry and engineering. He does it all! He's much more than just a musician/producer, he's a quadruple threat. I have had the pleasure in working with him on my personal projects as well as his own. He is brilliant and his genius is unparalleled.
As an artist manager, Lucius is a fantastic producer to work with. He is extremely respectful in all situations and creatively has been a fantastic collaborator for my artists. He is communicative, talented, and highly professional.
You want the best track out there? You want your music to stand out from the rest dont let his calm demeanor fool you. He worked on my rock track and turned it into a pop rock gem. Those beats can't be found they had to be made. High quality!!! I cant put it down fans love it. If you are serious about your music this is the producer that make it happen and take it there.

Love working with Lucius! Whenever we get together we ALWAYS create a great song and have a lot of fun doing it! Everyone praises our work together
Interview with Lucius
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception about what I do is that its easy and that I can just magically make a record sound amazing in 20 min. A lot of people don't understand the process or don't even know that there is a process of trial and error that happens when creating music.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask them what sound are they looking for, do they have examples of the sound or demos of previous music, whats the duration of the project, what kind of budget do they have. I ask whats the goal of the project, is it to shop to labels. The list can go on. Over all I ask as many question so I can how to approach the project.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I would tell them to know what sound they are looking for. Not every producer can help them craft the sound they are looking for. Also not to be in a rush. Rome wasn't built in a day.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: i would take my Mac,apollo, telefunken AR-51, midi keyboard, and pair of Adam speakers.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started off at Quad studios as a intern and worked my way up as a assistant. I was later picked up by a successful producer and I became is apprentice. I learned a lot from him, my first placements came from working with him. I later went out on my own and was able to make a living from music. I've been doing this for about 9/12-10 years now.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style is very melodic and rhythmic.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would like to work with the next rising artist. Only because I would want to be apart of breaking that artist career. There is something say when you are very instrumental in breaking artist.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always make room for the top line. Never over produce a record. Make sure each instrument has a reason for being in the song and not just fill up the production with unnecessary sounds.

Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I strongly believe that the top line is most important for a song. It needs to be memorable, catchy and singable. The production is there to support the song. I believe that I help songs be the best they can be by moving out the way and letting the song shine.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: In regards to production,the client normally send a rough draft of their song and I will use it as a guis to production around the song. Sometimes I also start from scratch with the artist.
