I'm a very experienced engineer who has worked with many major label recording artists. I have produced and engineered records in multiple genres. My main focus here is to assist clients in getting the best product possible. I can perform any task necessary to achieve a professional product. Please let me know how I can help you.
I got my start in the industry over 10 years ago interning for Dallas Austin. From there I worked my way up to studio engineer and also began producing my own music and working with artists. Shortly after I partnered up with a Florida based production team known as "The Agency". Our work took us to LA and I have been here ever since. Over this time I have developed a very well rounded set of skills. I'm able to tune vocals, mix, edit, arrange, and produce full records. In the 10+ years in the industry, I have worked in every capacity possible. Working hands on with artists is my speciality. I can perform any task in the recording/editing spectrum. I'm not the cheapest, but my steadfast belief is that quality work pays for itself. I am here to provide you with the highest quality work possible to help bring your projects to life. Please let me know how I can help you, even if its not in the job description. I also have an audio engineering degree and have experience working with video clients with sound design.

Interview with Nelson (Nellz) Kyle
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
