Are you looking to produce and finish your songs? I can help! With over 20 years of experience writing, arranging, and producing music, I have the ear and ability to help bring your songs to life! Easy to work with and committed to quality results. Contact me today and get discounted mixing and production rates. I look forward to working with you!
Like many of us, I fell in love with music at a young age. At 15 years old, I started a band, performing locally for several years. This passion for music led me to pursue formal education in the field. I studied audio engineering at Recording Arts Canada, Music Composition and Production at Humber College, and I worked in radio as a production engineer working with voice-over talent, producing commercials.
My music has been featured on national CBC television and I've been fortunate to have been taught by and worked with some incredible musicians including Rik Emmett (Triumph), Bob Furgo (Leonard Cohen), and others.
Before working together I'll want to understand your vision for the track, where you're at in your process, and look for other tracks that you want to try to emulate sonically.
I can be as hands-on or off as you want me to be but what I can bring to the table includes:
-Audio editing (cleaning up your tracks)
-Production additions (guitar, keys, drums, bass)
-Songwriting ideas (ideas for melody, arrangement, lyrics, etc.)
-Mixing your track
With my extensive experience and knowledge of the sound industry, I can help you to bring your musical ideas to life! Contact me with a demo of your track, let me know what your needs are, and let's start the conversation!

Interview with Dave G
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring a critical and discerning ear, in terms of mix, production, and composition, as well as my years of experience as a musician, songwriter, and engineer.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to get familiar with the project first and get the project setup in my DAW. I like to have all the requirements known so I can work without too many hiccups in the process. I like to stay communicative with the client so we're all on the same page. I work efficiently but carefully, not wanting to waste time or bark up the wrong tree for too long.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a pretty simple home studio setup, with a Windows 10 Laptop, running Reaper as my DAW currently, a Yamaha-P85 keyword, an M-Audio MIDI controller, a Focusrite Scarlet 2i2, and a bargain condenser mic I also play guitar so have a Taylor and Cherry Sunburst Les Paul laying around.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm inspired by anyone who is passionate about what they do and turn that inspiration into something new and interesting, regardless of the style or genre.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: At the moment, I'm doing a lot of audio editing and audio production for podcasts, spoken audio recordings, and the like. I take unprocessed audio and turn it into something that can compete with what you might hear on your favorite podcasting platform.
