Duck the bass produces fresh songs with commercial appeal. If you give her a reference she will capture the vibe and sound of the reference, while complimenting and enhancing your song. She always finds these cool little sounds that I call “ear candy.” I love how she processed my guitar tracks and mixed them into the songs. Everything she does is high quality and her mixes are ready for radio or film and tv.
