    It has been an honor and a blessing to work with George de León Jr. He is an amazing producer and musician! Super creative and always goes above and beyond with every single project! George is very professional and diligent with his work. I have been working with him for about ten years and now I am very happy to have him as my music director and producer. -Vale

    George de Leó. Jr. is one of the most talented producers, sound engineer and musician I know and have worked with. He has been my music director since 2019 and has produced and mixed all of my songs since then. One stop for everything, he does everything right. Super professional and responsible. It has been a blessing to be able to work with him and a great learning experience ... JM

Interview with George de León Jr.

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I produced an album for Latin group Son By 4 in 2014 that was my first Latin Grammy Nomination. I am particularly proud of that record because it was recorded in my tiny wood house, with no professional equipment, and ridiculous limitations. It is my way of saying "I don't need gear, just good songs and my ears".

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Always working on different projects... Check out my website for recent credits.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: There are a lot of highly recommended professionals here.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: We need both. I record on a bunch of Analog Gear, and do the Mixing ITB. I just love the easy recalls. Also, I can work anywhere in the world (literally), as long as I have my laptop.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: I will make your song better.

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

  12. A: I just love music. The fact that I get to make a living out of it is simply a blessing.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: Lots of questions... More than happy to answer all of them.

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: Some people seem to thing the computer does all the work, and the gear plays itself...

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: Where do you see your song? What are your musical preferences? What are you listening to lately?

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

  20. A: Look for someone who understands where you plan on going with your project. The fact that he/she has reputable credits does not mean it will work on your project.

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

  22. A: My hands and my ears. The only variable in my studio is ME.

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: I've been doing this since I was 16. So, 15 years as of today. From the very first guitar session I had, I've never stopped working. I was that prepared. Spent my whole childhood learning my craft.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: I have a mix of Country, Worship and Latin that is quite interesting.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: A huge list of country artists. I just love their songs and their sound.

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

  30. A: LISTEN and FEEL. I get lots of arrangements and productions that have a bunch of stuff thrown in "just because". Music MUST make you feel stuff. It does not benefit from random stuff.

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

  32. A: It varies on a daily basis. Today i might be working on a Reggaetón track, tomorrow it might be a Worship song, and the day after tomorrow I could be recording Country. Or a jingle... Or Bachata... Or Vallenato... You get the idea.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: My ability to interpret what the song needs, and take it where it needs to be.

  35. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  36. A: I will simply make it better. That is my promise to you. I have years of experience in a wide range of genres.

  37. Q: What's your typical work process?

  38. A: It depends on what I'm working on. (complicated question)

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: My studio was designed to work for my work method. I am surrounded by my guitars, and my live room is filled with acustic instruments.

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

  42. A: A bunch of people. On guitar, I love everything Dan Warner did (RIP), as well as Tim Pierce and Mike Landau. Production-wise, everything Dan Huff touches is GOLD. Mixers that inspire me are CLA, Justin Niebank, Jeff Juliano, Reid-Shippen, just to name a few...

  43. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  44. A: I work daily in Guitar sessions, Producing and Mixing.
