My name is Blake and I am a Double Platinum RIAA certified producer, composer, and mix engineer based out of Nashville, TN. In my audio career, I have been lucky enough to have worked on projects for major and indie labels, television networks, brands and a broad range of artists in many genres from country to pop to edm, indie and r&b. I am excited to work on your next project! Unlike other most engineers, I will take any session file from your favorite DAW, or .wav stems and deliver a professional, polished production with flexible rates!
