Francesco Mazza on SoundBetter

Producer, Guitarist and Mixer, Collaborator on Latin Grammy-winning album and on records by many other nominees. I want to bring out the genuineness of each artist.

Hello! My name is Francesco Mazza, I was born in 1986 in Italy in the city of Como and when I was ten years old I came to live in Buenos Aires. I studied Musical Production at the Argentine Catholic University. I started working for three years at Disney, editing and cleaning the voice-overs for Art Attack and several other children's programs. This job gave me a lot of experience in perfecting voices to the maximum to make them sound impeccable. Those same techniques and level of detail are what I use today for my productions.

In recent years I worked with Argentinean artists Athenas and Tobias Buteler on productions for several Catholic music albums and we played concerts throughout America. We toured for more than 4 years in more than fourteen countries.

I currently work with many independent artists who trust in my experience and my abilities to turn their musical dreams into reality.

I have had the privilege to collaborate on a Latin Grammy-winning album (Juan Delgado) and on records by many other nominees (Athenas). I want to bring out the genuineness of each artist.

My wish is that more music comes to light and that this process is as genuine as possible.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

    Profesional, detallista, elegante y gran persona. Con Francesco he tenido el gusto de trabajar en literalmente cientos de tracks de todo tipo; hemos hecho tours juntos con Athenas en más de 100 ciudades en 13 países. Su calidad como productor, guitarrista, ingeniero, mixer (y preparador de café!) ha llevado nuestra carrera al siguiente nivel una y otra vez, así como su hospitalidad ha hecho que cada proyecto se convierta en un gran recuerdo en el corazón. Trabajamos juntos mil veces, y trabajaremos mil más!

    Francesco fue el productor de mi álbum “Todo es tuyo” el cuál fue muy exitoso y que cuenta con mi canción más escuchada con más de 50 millones de reproducciones en las plataformas digitales, eso habla de su gran trabajo y sensibilidad musical. Además me ha acompañado a lo largo de los años en numerosas giras por toda América y lo sigue haciendo. No solo es talentoso sino que además es una gran persona! :)

    Fran is an incredible musician and producer. Guest appearance and live performance with Athenas on EWTN Radio's Fe hecha canción program in 2018 was one for the ages! Look forward to each new release that comes out of Fran's studio to feature on the program. Definitely check him out.
