Torstein Jarwson (TJ) on SoundBetter

I can make a full production from just a bare-bones song that you have. I am a singer/songwriter, guitarist and use virtual instruments on my keyboard. I can turn your ideas into radio-ready hits. My main genre is Rock, but i am willing to take on a challenge in other genres as well. I am flexible and like good music regardless of genre.

I specialize in producing entire tracks from scratch, as well as mixing and mastering. Recorded in a top-notch home studio. Listen to the audioexamples to get an idea of what i can do.
Making great music is what drives me, and i will listen and play on the same team as you. Making your vision come true is my goal. I will work with you to get it just right and the sound/ style you want.
You can for example record a demo, playing/singing on your laptop or cell phone voice memo (w/ a click track). Then I build the production around your voice and playing. I'll arrange, record, perform and mix the entire track from scratch.

    AAA-grade mixing and mastering on two of my contemporary musical pieces; very clean sound, and the levels were just right for playback on all devices. Very professional! I highly recommend enlisting the services of Torstein!
