Jeff Libey on SoundBetter

Specializing in producing, recording, and mixing singer-songwriters and independent artists. I have over 20 years of experience in the craft... and if you simply need a killer guitarist, I can help you there, too!

If one could earn a degree in popular rock music, I would have a master’s.

I spent the 90s and 2000s touring with some of the midwest's best bands. I've rocked the dingiest of bars, toured clubs across the country, and played with national artists.

Whether performing in bands or recording and producing independent artists, I've tried to develop a deep understanding of the sonic landscape that makes a hit song on modern radio.

I specialize in singer-songwriter pop, rock, and indie. I can produce, engineer, record, and mix your songs, or simply provide session guitar work for you. Most internet clients choose a package that includes the whole process.

I try to serve the artist's vision for their song, and help them bring it to life. In my experience, each project has been different, but I've always respected the integrity of the song for the artist. Feedback is essential, and I want to provide you with the attention and service your music deserves.

    Jeff is an incredibly talented musician/producer and a pleasure to work with. His musical ability is unparalleled, and no matter the genre he's got you covered. Jeff is an amazing asset to any project, and I highly recommend him!

    Jeff continuously proves to be a credit to his craft. His production skills are top notch, and he is so easy to work with. He puts so much of himself into his projects and always professionally pushes the artists into a better product. Get yourself a Libey. Your life will be better.

    I have had the pleasure on working with Jeff in several live band and recording projects. His attention to detail and his ear for getting “that sound” in the guitar realm is world-class. He is a horse in the studio as a player and a great technician as an engineer, whether you are recording a demo in a living room, or a full album in the studio.

    Our band had an awesome experience recording with Jeff. He is incredibly patient and accommodating, while he offers great professional guidance like a great teacher. We are an amateur band, and he made us feel, and sound, like pros. His presence during recording was confident and calming, and he always adds a lot of professional insight and education, so we really understand what we are doing and the options we have to accomplish what we want. We look forward to completing several tracks with Jeff for a full length CD. When we hit it big, we definitely intend to give Jeff some free balcony tix

    I’ve had the privilege of working with Jeff Libey on a variety of projects.
    Jeff has an ear for music. He knows just what a tune could use, and has the skills to make it sound just the way it should. He is also an outstanding musician and, to top it off, is one of the nicest most sincere human beings I’ve ever met.
    I can’t recommend him enough!

    Having worked with Jeff on multiple projects, it’s been incredible to see the exponential growth is his skills as producer / engineer/ arranger. Take 10 minutes to listen to The Failers’ “All The Dirt and All The Doubt”, “Think You’re A Drag”, and “Slacks” - in that order - and hear how quickly and effortlessly Jeff has evolved in the studio. He takes his craft seriously, and you can hear it in every note

  7. Review by Jeff Washer

    Jeff is an incredible talent on both sides of the mixing board. As a producer and recording engineer, he creates extremely polished music. He has an amazing ear, and the proof is in his final productions. As a musician, his contributions include guitar, bass, keys, songwriting, song arrangement and more- all of which are at a highly pro-level.

    I have been writing and recording with Jeff in the studio for the past few years. He has pushed me to become my best and has helped me create the finest music I have ever recorded. Utilize Jeff for your projects. You will not be disappointed.

    Jeff has a mastery of studio recording and arrangement that can only be achieved by someone with an obsessive attention to detail and ears developed over thirty years of playing, performing and commitment to one’s craft.

    I’ve been fortunate enough to play guitars on several projects with regional Indy band, the Failers and I’m blown away at the quality of our songs, the arrangements and our overall “sound”. Jeff was able to repeatedly turn our musical vision into a reality.

    I can’t recommend Jeff enough and can’t wait to record with him again.

  9. Review by Tim Wilsbach

    Jeff is my secret weapon. He co-produced, recorded, mixed and mastered my last ten track record ( Wils Bach Indianapolangeles on all the streamers) and a few singles since then. His talent is off the charts as an engineer, as a mixer and as a producer.

    Every track I send him he just absolutely kills. He also happens to be one of the easiest, nicest people you could ever work with. Cannot recommend him enough.

    I could gush about what an amazing guitar player he is too...but you get the idea. The dude is talented, hire him.
