Austin is absolutely awesome, I can’t recommend him enough to be honest! He understood what I needed/wanted right from the start - he patiently answered any questions, was super responsive and he delivered. I am super happy with how everything turned out and am already discussing my next project with him!
This is song number 5 (I think) with Austin. He's great at knowing what to add and what not to add to help the track reach full potential. He has really great taste and brought to life another song of mine! Can't wait to release these.
Great producer! I highly recommend.
Austin once again has done a stellar job on reimagining my acoustic cover of Norweigan Wood by The Beatles into a beautiful, lush, cinematic masterpiece. This was a tasteful and wonderfully creative surprise to see how he was able to transform this song!
Our second production, mixing and mastering from Austin.
What can I say.. He listens to everything you have to say and translates it to your production. What others can't do in a back-and-forth over a long period, Austin managed to get right in ONE go..
I can't recommend him enough. An absolute pro.
Austin is extremely easy to work with, professional and friendly. Every step of the way he was communicative and enthusiasm to work on the project. I need a modern country sound and he delivered exactly that. Highly recommend!
Austin managed to capture everything that we expressed, in his first go. The soundscape he built is spectacular and all minor tweaks were provided swiftly and on point.
We have exactly the track we hoped for.
Thank you Austin.
Another great job, Austin really captured the heart of this song and brought the story of it through sonic choices. I'll be doing more songs with him in the future!
Austin did an excellent job bringing my acoustic demo to life into a fully produced track in little time at all. With some simple reference tracks and information on how I'd like it to sound, and what instrumentation I preferred, he took it and ran with it. He was timely with his tracks and very patient with me. Can't wait to work with him on future projects!
Austin is excellent. My daughter and I just worked with him a second time, and were again impressed with his ability to catch the vibe of what she was going for very quickly. Austin is extremely talented and professional!
Austin's done it yet again!! Even with busy summer traveling schedules and other things, he worked so efficiently with me and communicated promptly throughout the process. He captured the energy and vibe I envisioned so perfectly that I only needed a couple of tweaks after the first mix. So happy with the song!!
Great to work with. Very patient and will get you to where you want to go with your project. Will for sure work with Austin again for future projects! Highly recommend!
Austin is a true professional and has a great musical feel . His work is always of the highest standard
Austin is a top notch musician and producer. He went above and beyond my expectations and delivered an incredible production, incredibly quickly! He also referred me to an amazing drummer that gave the song what it needed. Hire him!!
Austin does great work on his own but he also takes direction really well, like spot-on! Fast, dependable and creative! my pleasure...
Austen is a great guitar and bass player. Always look forward to his playing!
Another great job. Austin took the stems I sent, with the ideas and direction for the track and just crafted it above and beyond what I could do. There are many elements he added to bring the track to life much more than I was able to. From the addition of instruments to mixing and mastering this was another stellar job.
As always, really impressed with Austin's work, just done my 4th song with him
Austin is always amazing to work with. He is super responsive and is a true genius musical talent. This was my 8th project with him and there will be more in the future!
Austin is super talented and a pleasure to work with.
Interview with Austin Moorhead
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Home Studio with 2 ISO booths and guitar amp ISO box, Distressor EL8X Compressor, Chandler TG2 Abbey Road Stereo Pre, WAVES complete plugins/ tons of others, Tons of Mics, Pedal Steel/ Dobro/ Acoustics/ Mandolin, Apogee Duet 2, LOTS of other stuff!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both!! I use a mix of both in almost every project I do. Sometimes you need a piece of hardware for what you're doing, but a lot of times digital plugins work better for what you need. I don't use "templates", and am always trying new things to get the sound I want for the project.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise I will do my best to find the sound YOU want, and not try to put my mark on it as a player. I listen and work with the artist/ producer and won't stop until we have exactly what you want.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I always ask for at least a couple reference tracks that you think fit the style of what you're going for.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Matches Water Purifier Fishing Pole Swiss Army Knife Gibson J45
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I love adding the "frosting" on top of the cake. By that I mean instruments like Pedal Steel and Dobro, which add a sweet layer on top of the track you've already worked hard to make. I aim for tasteful and stylistic parts and will never sound "showy". It's always about the song for me and not about the individual parts. It's ALL about the groove. Whether it's a country/ folk track or a pop/rock track, I'll find the sound/ style you want and work to make that come out.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't overuse compression/ effects, or over-complicate parts. And don't record in a vaccuum. Meaning, don't isolate parts and make them sound the best they can on their own. This will actually make the recording worse. When mixing a project, all that matters is how the tracks sound together. Also, don't be afraid to try different/ weird things. If you have a hip-hop track and think pedal steel would sound cool on it, let's do it!! That's more than one tip, but there you go....
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Country, Indie, Pop
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: As a player, I feel like my strongest asset is arranging/ coming up with the right parts for a song. If you have something that you think needs something and can't figure out what it is, I will work to find the right part to fit it. Whether that's some shiny pedal steel guitar parts on top of your track, or some dobro for a swampier sound, or rhythm acoustic guitar to glue the track together, I'll work to make your track sound the best it can. The parts/ mixes you get from me will always be top studio quality and I will work as hard/ long on a project as I need to until you're happy with it. I will do as many revisions on a project that you want until we get it right where you want it.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I'm a Session Musician offering Pedal Steel Guitar, Dobro, Mandolin, and Acoustic Guitar tracks for your projects. I'm also a mixing engineer and offer very competitive pricing for mixing full projects. I also am available to build full instrumental tracks. This includes arrangements, performing, recording, and mixing an entire song from scratch. You send me a guitar/ vocal or piano/ vocal demo of your song, and I'll take it from there. Revisions are free until you're happy with it!
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I just finished an album for Nashville based Country/ rock artist Parker McKay- EP I did the Production, Mixing, Arrangements, Guitars (Ac. and El.), Piano.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm on the road a few days a week with Warner Brothers Country Artist Jana Kramer (Pedal steel, dobro, acoustic gtr), as well as always working on lots of projects in Nashville. I do session work often as well as mixing full tracks/ albums.
