Ilya Kireyev (Kirey records) on SoundBetter

Hi there! If you have written some songs which require arranging and producing from scratch - let's collaborate! I will take your song and bring it to another level. My workplace is located in Riga, Latvia. I am also an audio specialist at Sonarworks, leading calibration software in the music industry for studio speakers and headphones.

You write brilliant songs, but don't know how they should sound on a record? You have some great musical ideas, but have no clue how to deliver them to the listeners? You play an instrument, but not the way you'd like to? Send your demos and me and my musician team will produce a great song from the very beginning. We will find the best structure for your song, highlight your talent, contribute and record live guitars, drums, bass and other instruments if necessary. Our main goal is to contribute to your song and do what's best for it. Personal attitude, no cliches or musical stereotypes.

You can record your own voice, find a singer to do it or we can do it for you!
We offer recording at our studio or you could record at any other studio of your choice, including your home studio.

Please check out my Soundcloud playlist, all featured songs there are contributed, mixed and produced by our team, but sung by the actual song authors.

About pricing: When you pay for our "Producers" service pack, tracking, mixing, arranging, editing, producing and mastering is included in the price. Basically, you won't have any additional costs. Note, that you can choose any other service separately, which does not require producing and arranging.

Tell me about your project and how I can help, through the 'Contact' button above.

    I realy liked working with Elija and songs turned out great! Elijah listens to what client wants, but also brings his own uniqe vision to the prosess. He comes up with good ideas for recordings and structuring each song and really puts his soul in playing instruments, developing cool sound and brings it up on high performing level. I hope we work again soon and record more together!

    Really great to work with Elijah. Truly professional and creative approach. Very detail oriented in each and every aspect of music production.
    Recorded various drum tracks with Elijah. He is always open to any new rhythmic ideas and concepts, but also always has some of his own in his pocket. Highly recommend.

  3. Review by Karl Steinmanis

    I've collaborated with Elijah on a couple of projects and he has always been a very meticulous and goal-oriented producer. His edits are precise and he has a great ear for guitar and drum tones.

    Elijah always takes care when adressing client feedback and is open to any mix notes you may have. Quick turnaround times.

    If you need guitar arrangements and a ripping blues solo - Elijah's your guy.

    We met with Elijah as owner of his recording studio in 2014. He had some impressive works in his portfolio already. Most important thing was that he creates his own sound of record taking good care of author material. He is wonderful gitar player and arranger. We really made creative work together. He is more experienced in all sides of business now, so I can recomend him for all rock projects.

  6. Review by Tamara R.

    Great musician and producer. Elijah did a lot of projects for me. My song "I Choose Rock'n'Roll" from my debut album was arranged and recorded by Elijah, also he played all guitar parts for this song. He did acoustic version for my song "Woop woop" and recorded it live. If you looking for arranger, producer and mixer, Elijah Kireyev is the best choice to work with.
