Caleb masterfully took on this “double feature” project and knew exactly what I was going for! A back to back acoustic track that leads into a huge wall of sound, and he was able to work within both styles seamlessly and expertly! I highly, highly recommend Caleb to produce your music!
Caleb, as always, is incredible to work with. This project was a re-production of something we worked on previously and he took this track to the next level!

We are so happy with Caleb's work and thank him for being so flexible and available throughout the entire process! We would highly recommend Caleb to anyone looking for a talented, enthusiastic, and insightful producer.
Fast, helpful and authentic. Great vibes and song.
I hired Caleb to do production, mixing, and mastering on my song, and he was awesome to work with. He was very patient with all the adjustments I was wanting to make, and also very proactive in being creative and coming up with little touches here and there to make the song sound better. The final mix and master sound professional, and I would work with him again in a heartbeat
Caleb won’t disappoint - he’s an A grade, top top guy and super talented producer. Gets things done quickly and keeps you involved with great communication along the way. More than happy with the results. Hire him!
I've been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work with Caleb consistently over the past two years. He is an absolute professional in every sense of the word. Caleb is not only a very talented musician and producer, but also approaches his projects with an amazing attitude and a wide breadth and depth of knowledge; he's awesome to work with. He has first hand experience in many genres, and it's a safe bet he'll be able to provide valuable contribution in a wide array of of solutions. Caleb is the first person I approach for help in bringing my ideas to reality. Thank you!
Caleb is easygoing and I love working with him. He always delivers a high quality product.
I have performed with Caleb live on several occasions. I find his ability to direct a performance and add feedback on the dynamics of a particular song in a live setting invaluable. The man is truly a master of his craft and I would recommend him to anyone.
Caleb worked on eight songs for my album. I was able to give him an idea of the sound I wanted, and he made the whole album fit together. Not only does he mix and master, but he is a great musician that added a lot of value to my tracks. He slapped in some killer bass lines and percussion, and he can do much more. I highly recommend Caleb and can’t wait to pitch him my new ideas when they come.

Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
