I have years of experience writing and recording indie pop, indie rock, and singer-songwriter tracks. I am here to help you put out a radio-quality track with the sound you want.
I'm a multi-instrumentalist musician, songwriter, and mixing engineer from Austin, Texas. I can help you create a great track by writing and recording acoustic/electric guitar, piano, keys, backup vocals, and writing lyrics.
If you have a simple demo and need it to be filled out with lush instrumentation, mixed, and mastered, I can do that! Alternatively, if you just need certain instruments recorded or just have it mixed/mastered, I can also do that.
If you would like to hear my writing style, simply look up "Tiny Dolphin" on any streaming platform. If you would like to hear my mixing/mastering, visit my website or just reach out to me and ask to hear my most recent work!

Very very very patient with me! This track is my favorite so far. Alex was so creative with this one. I requested an 80s funk type of beat and sound and it was delivered so perfectly. He truly is an amazing artist.
Alex is very patient and very diligent. I had asked him for a lot of revisions and gave him pretty nebulous feedback and he was still able to produce the sound I wanted and was a pure professional throughout. He really takes the time to achieve the sound that you want.
Alex Fisher was a JOY to work with. Absolutely ZERO ego and really works to create a song YOU want. He's an extremely talented musician and has a real ear for what sounds good, so his advice and musical input are really helpful and useful when he gives it. He's very quick to return edits and different versions and has a can-do and excited attitude to make your song the absolute BEST it can be.
Excellent as always! I had two songs beautifully produced and mixed by him. He's extremely responsive and willing to do whatever it takes to get your song to where you want it to be. I'm also really impressed with how many instruments he's skilled at, especially piano! Will be working with Alex again. :)
First time doing a project and it went much better than I could have ever imagined! Alex was very in tune with what I had imagined, and was able to communicate perfectly! 10/10
Alex helped me produce every song on my EP and also helped master the EP itself and I could not have asked for a better job. All the songs came out exactly how I imagined them thanks to his work. I highly recommend him, he's very easy to work with and does a fantastic job.
Alex produced and mastered my song in under 2 weeks and was able to nail the sound after just one phone call. I'll continue seeking out Alex for my future projects.
Second time working with Alex! I can’t thank him enough for being so patient with me throughout the process. I was also so impressed with his musical composition for this song, he is amazing at what he does. Definitely working with him from now on.
Alex was such a pleasure to work with and is so incredibly talented. He was patient and really took the time to listen to my ideas in order to make the song come to life! I really felt his support, investment and creativity throughout the production of the song. Couldn't have done it without him!
Alex wrote a gorgeous track for my meditation channel with all kinds of pads, pianos, strings, choirs... it was exactly what I was envisioning! He made sure I was happy with the final product and was communicative, kind, and professional throughout the whole process. I'll definitely be working with him again!!
This was my third time working with Alex and the process was as smooth as ever. He really got what I was going for in terms of the sound and style and he nailed it very quickly.
This is my second time working with Alex. Very smooth process. It's obvious that Alex wants to make sure your artistic intentions are realized.
Extremely happy with what we are getting from Alex. He is adaptable and will find the sound you are looking for quickly- absolutely appreciate collaborating with someone so receptive.
Alex completed another song of mine after just two passes. Very quick work and high quality
An excellent musician and person!
Everything was done the first time and without error.
I will contact you again!)
Alex was awesome to work with. He brought a lot of interesting ideas to the table and was always open to feedback and trying different options. He transformed my rough demo (voice, guitar, drums) into a track with a lot of vibe and character. Highly recommend.
Alex did a great job with a really quick turnaround. He made my song sounds as I had imagined, even when it was hard for me to articulate exactly what I wanted. He was able to figure it out and create a masterpiece!
Alex is a legend. He turned my song around super fast but with the highest of quality and was there every step of the way for anything I needed. Super talented and friendly guy!
This was my second time working with Alex. My respect for his skills as a producer and a musician grew even more this time! There were different approaches to the song, exchanging ideas and simply trying out things. The communication part worked really well like last time and in the end, the song turned out just as I hoped, I really love the results. Thank you again, Alex :)
I requested a lot from Alex on this song and he was able to deliver! The production value on my song is now really high and it sounds just like I wanted it to. Alex was very responsive and a pleasure to work with.
