Eric Julio Carranza on SoundBetter

I am influenced by all music I've ever heard in my life. My goal is to always provide sounds to serve the song in the best way possible. Tasteful textures, riffs and melodies, or whatever your track needs. I also offer remote producing and mixing.

    Eric is super professional, works well under a time crunch, communicates about deliverables really well, has good ideas about approach, gives good feedback and ideas without losing track of the vibe you’re going for, has a good arsenal of equipment, and has a general charismatic attitude that is both refreshing and a joy to work with.

    I loved working with Eric. he has a natural ability to feel what the track needs and lets the music breathe when it needs to. I had him play electric guitar on my songs and he gave it more life easily acclimating to what the songs required. 10 stars. Gratitude to you Eric!

    I have worked with Eric for 10 years, and his talent and work ethic never cease to amaze me. For UnitedHealth Group, a Fortune 6 brand, I hired Eric to compose a series of exclusive license tracks for our enterprise-wide hold music and video usage library. Based on that series exceeding our high brand standards, Eric was commissioned to compose 4 soundtracks for a national campaign video series. His musical knowledge, instrument range, professionalism, collaborative approach and ability to take direction to match the emotive spirit needed to engage the audience are second to none.

    I hired Eric to play guitar on 3 tunes on my upcoming record. I cannot even begin to describe how pleased I was with everything. He was incredibly professional. He was quick and most of all, the tracks were incredible. He went above and beyond what I asked for. Everything from the tone, the texture, the feel, the groove was nothing short of perfect. Thank you Eric for making my songs come to life. We WILL be working together in the future again. You can stop looking for your next session guy right now. I would 100% recommend Eric.
