With years of experience and a passion for music, I am committed to bringing creativity and expertise to your tracks. I will work closely with you to ensure that your vision for the song is realized. When you partner with me, you can expect a high level of professionalism and attention to detail.
I also put a big focus on the quality of my recordings; I record in a acoustically treated studio and I use the following gear:
- AKG C414 condenser microphones
- Electro Voice RE20 dynamic microphones
- AEA R84A ribbon microphones
- Universal Audio 4-710d preamps
- Universal Audio Apollo Twin audio interface
I play soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet, flute, piccolo, alto flute, bass flute and wooden flutes. I also record: Trumpet, flugelhorn, trombone, french horn and tuba.
If you have a specific melody or idea, I can record exactly what you ask for, or I can also contribute my own ideas along the way. If you don't have anything specific in mind, no worries, you can leave it completely up to me to create a melody or an improvised solo for your track. I can also compose, arrange and record horn sections with any combination of horns.
I can also deliver your tracks really fast if you’re in a hurry.
All my work is one time fee/work for hire, which means you own the rights and royalties of the recording.
