Crystalskin / Lidocaine Lounge on SoundBetter

Let’s face it. Music enhances the emotion behind almost everything creative. Musicians do that with timbre, texture, and tempo. Whether what you’re creating is interactive like a game or background music for a video, I can help you deep dive into exactly what you’re trying to accomplish and then make the sounds rich, compelling, and memorable.

I am the artist and producer behind Crystalskin and Lidocaine Lounge, two music projects that include upwards of thirty individual songs on music platforms such as Spotify, iTunes etc. My goal has been, and always will be, to make a difference with my music. Whether that’s to lift someone’s spirits, enhance the exhilaration of a video game, or provide the perfect backdrop to the visual elements of a video. I can write music for your songs/video games/movies or any other medium. I can remotely mix or master your music. I am also available for features!

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
