I am dedicated to your happiness. Hard work ethic and agreeable demeanor. I won't stop working until you are happy with the final product.
While obtaining my Audio Engineering degree in 2009, I got to learn from the music industry's top engineers:
- Dave Poler (Michael Jackson, Kanye West, Missy Elliot, Justin Bieber, Timbaland, Beck, Santana)
- Sean McMahon (Slipknot, Marilyn Manson)
- Doug Olson (Smashing Pumpkins, L7)
Since then I have been recording, mixing, & mastering local bands in the midwest.
My biggest inspiration is the music and production of BRAND NEW, Nirvana, Death Cab for Cutie, Tigers Jaw, Jay-Z, Lupe Fiasco, Modest Mouse, Goth Babe, Emancipator, among others.
I LOVE mixing for emo, screamo, alternative rock, grunge, hip hop, singer/songwriter, and indie rock bands.

Interview with Sound Wright
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: BOTH. Certain songs/projects demand analog gear and others don't. I love running drums to tape through an SSL 4000! Mixing 'in the box' is just so much easier. Running some outboard gear during mixing is great of course as well.

Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring my own artistic creativity. As a musician, singer, and songwriter myself I can contribute musical ideas and vision to collaborate for the best end result.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Listen to a rough cut of the song first. Jot down any initial ideas I have, then ask the artist what their vision is for the song/album. Then share any thoughts or ideas I had and see if the artist is interested in trying any of them. Start working on a quick rough mix for the artist to make sure the direction and/or ideas are going as intended. Check in to see if any adjustments or additions need to be made. Continue mixing the track, delivering drafts, and communicating with the artist for feedback.
