There is no greater feeling than creating new music with an up and coming artist! There is also no greater love I have in this world than the love I have for music! The marriage of them both allows me to manifest the best possible outcome when working with clients.
I want to provide a sound for my clients that’s not only heard, but more importantly felt. I pride myself on approaching each client on an individual basis. Which means I won’t treat what I do like an assembly line. I taylor make each beat, mix and master of a project to that specific artist and the sound we’re trying to achieve. Not only that, I pride myself on being with the artist every step of the way in the promotion of the project as well. I know how important it is as an artist to be heard and it’s my job as the engineer/producer to ensure that the music sounds great. It would be my pleasure to work on your next project!
