Having to provide large volumes across multiple genres for TV, has given me years of experience in creating the precise sound and emotion that an artist would want to convey.
• I've mixed and produced for several artists:
Having works featured on playlists, TV shows (Real World, The Challenge, etc...). Totaling millions of streams on Youtube and Spotify without the assistance of a record label.

Nate was very compassionate and professional. I am very grateful that I got to work with him and most certainly want to work with him again. I highly recommend him as a music producer.
Nate has a great ear - he hears things I don’t and gives awesome advice on direction. Excited about where this song will go, in particular!
Man. I’ve been singing this song for years and years - Nate put his ears on it and came back with a completely different vibe and feel and I LOVE it. He’s awesome.
Nate is a kind and collaborative producer. He is great at listening to your vision for the song. He has a great talent for putting together an exciting track that builds throughout the journey of the song. He is imaginative and makes cool production choices. I love this guy!
Another awesome experience with Nate. So awesome that one song has now turned into an album with him - I’m very grateful for his creativity and talent. And his never-ending patience with me!
I wish there were 6 stars because this guy deserves it. This was my first foray into tracking a song and Nate’s patience was a big reason why it was so enjoyable. He’s amazingly talented and thoughtful and keeps you on track (which I needed!). I highly recommend him and can’t stress that enough!
Nate was great to work with. He was very responsive and involved with the project!
This was the first project I completed in SoundBetter and I couldn't be happier that I chose Nate to play keys on my track. He was really nice to work with. He took the time to talk to me, understand what I wanted, and refined the part accordingly. Of course, importantly, the keys are Most Excellent, and definitely more than I had ever imagined. Not sure what else to say other than I'll definitely want to work with him again in the future!
If you’re looking for someone to go above and beyond, Nate Dodge is the man. I went to Nate for a drum renovation on my track, and not only did he produce excellent results, he took additional production and mixing liberties on the track as a whole. It sounds full, rich, cinematic and alive.
He communicates promptly and is willing to get lost in the weeds with you if necessary. Thank you so much, Nate!
Nate was great to work with and ended up bringing my vision for my song to life. He did a great job and was patient with me throughout the process in getting him my vocals and reference tracks, thanks Nate!! Will definitely work with him again and I definitely recommend him.

Interview with Nate Dodge
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: David Archuleta's recent album. We worked extremely hard on the songs he included. I was the producer on "Paralyzed" and "Just Breathe"
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I used to be all digital, but now I'm leaning towards a blend of both. They are all great for different applications.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will never compromise quality
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I compose and produce for multiple music supervisors, publishers and artists. I've been doing this solid for 2 years now, but many, many... many hours were put in prior
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Usually beats for TV. Mostly a mix of trap, pop, and EDM.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My attention to detail. I can get lost in the process.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: It usually starts with a worktape of the song an artist wants produced. We start by discussing the direction, listen through some songs that they are inspired by and try to narrow down a vision. I'll start to build the track with the artist involved -- I feel it immediately steers me in the right direction. I also try to involve the artist in every part of the process as much as possible. From there we start mapping out the lead vocals. It's a delicate process and I don't want to intervene, but may offer some suggestions along the way. After our first session, I'll spend some additional time on the track and sketch out vocal mix/production ideas. I send it all over, then we meet again to track final vocals. I'm very meticulous, but encouraging and we'll record several takes of each section. Afterwards, I'll make all the edits, do additional mixing and production and won't send over a first mix until I'm satisfied. I feed off of constructive criticism and strongly encourage feedback.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Taking a rough worktape of an iPhone recording and getting it to a fully produced, mixed and mastered stated.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I can be curious, try weird things, make mistakes. I have the opportunity to work with so many great people and help them with their creative vision.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Have a worktape of your song, whether it be from your phone or laptop and have an idea in mind of where you want the production to go. I can take it from there!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Greg Kurstin is probably at the top of who inspires me most. His story coming up is incredible and he always remains humble. He is always learning and staying curious. I am also inspired by the work ethic of Prince, Max Martin and Quincy Jones.
