    Elijah is an incredibly dedicated engineer who is super creative with his recording styles. A great hang all around, his work as a producer/engineer is always exciting and energetic and he’s always down to try new things. Definitely recommend him.

    Working with Elijah has been a wonderful experience. I love how he makes the recording process collaborative. It’s so fun to experiment with knew sounds I never would have thought to add to a song, and it’s incredibly refreshing to get input from such a talented and experienced musician. I would definitely recommend working with Elijah to anyone interested in creating music that reflects their own ideas, as well as challenges them to think about sound in new and interesting ways.

    Elijah's ability as a triple threat Producer/Engineer/Instrumentalist makes him an incomparable collaborator. The production value he provides is invaluable. He knows what makes a song strong, what'll make it even stronger, and how to take it there.

Interview with Elijah Wells

  1. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  2. A: I love that I get to walk into a room full of friendly people and lots of instruments, be creative for hours at a time, and out of thin air create a recording that will last forever. That is pretty special.

  3. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  4. A: Don't hire anyone who isn't genuinely excited about the music. If they seem excited about the fact that you might advance their career and not the music, run away. Always keep in mind that you can do this without anyone else's help; Bon Iver's debut record which has over a billion streams on Spotify was mostly recorded in a cabin with one Shure SM57 and an old Avid audio interface. Good collaborators are essential, but only hire people if the experience of working with them is better than doing it yourself.

  5. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  6. A: There are no rules and nothing matters except how it sounds and how it makes a first-time listener feel.

  7. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  8. A: Lots of kinds!

  9. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  10. A: Any musicians/producers/engineers who think outside of the box and go about their job with a sense of purposeful uniqueness inspire me. When I hear a record that doesn't sound like something I've heard before, whether because it's unique writing or unique sounds or both, I am inspired.
