We do this together:

Form a
project vision

We get together and talk about where you are in your artistic journey. I listen as you describe where you've been, and what you'd like to accomplish. I look for ways I can help you get there.

your music

We immerse ourselves in producing studio recordings of your songs. The focus is on creating your own original songs or co-writing together. We figure this out as we go.

My role as your producer:

My job is to help your finished work to sound and look awesome. I will guide your project through the recording process so that it reflects your creativity and aesthetic preferences. You'll find me easy to trust and just as interested in your success as I am my own. I will help encourage your best performances, and make the process enjoyable.

I have a good sense for what works well in different situations, and fluency in Pro Tools and Logic Pro X so that our workflow is efficient. We record with state-of-the-art microphones, preamps, clocking and converters for today's sound. Rarely will you be waiting around for technology to behave. All of this adds up to getting more final results for less money.

If you're an experienced pro:

For you, music is more than fun — it's your business. You've been in sessions where valuable time was wasted on computer crashes, whacky headphone mixes, or the engineer just being slow. You also know that if you've been given a certain recording budget, the less money you spend on recording, the more you can keep for other purposes. Because I've been an independent a business person for almost thirty years, I get all that. That's why I invest in more expensive computers that don't crash (or hardly ever, anyway). And I invest in myself to continually become more fluent with my studio software, gear and instruments. I aim to deliver quality — and in the studio that means quality sound AND quality relationships — resulting in a quality reputation for both of us.

If you're new to recording:

Most people think great recordings just fall together effortlessly in one take. The actual truth is opposite: Most of the songs we hear streamed or on the radio have been labored over for many hours in the recording studio. The recording process tends to reveal issues we didn't know we had, and we have to push into new territory to refine our techniques. Vocal pitch, properly tuned instruments, and groove-awareness often become challenged when under the microscope of recording. The good news is, recording ends up improving your musicianship. You become a better artist.

I have high standards, but I keep it fun. Be ready to put ego aside, and work hard on details to resolve problems you didn't know you had. The result is that your recordings will embody all the energy and passion of your normal live performance, yet able to stand the test of time and repeated listening.
