Hey, I'm Shane and I'm a Multi-instrumentalist Producer/songwriter based in South Jersey. The past 10 years I've honed in my skills, producing my own and others music. I've worked with Grammy Nominated producers/songwriters as well are artists from around the world and I’m excited to work with you!
Whether it's an idea on a voice memo or a song you want the finishing production touch on, I'll be able to turn your idea into the song you're looking for. I believe my skills and techniques are unique and will help make your music stand out. But of course everyone says this and will swear by it but I'll let my work speak for itself.
I do lots of my work remotly and because of this communication is very important to me. We'll start by going over the vision of your song and what story you're trying to tell. From there I'll perform and record the arrangement we come up with together. I'll be in contact daily with ideas and progress. I can work very quickly so It's just as important for me to have feedback and direction from the very beginning. If you need help finding mixing and mastering engineers, or are unsure how to send your song for distribution, I can help you with that too.
I'm ready to take the ideas inside your head and make them a reality. Contact and lets get started!
Please include your budget when reaching out.

Interview with Shane Becker
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Tyler Sarfert! He's a great friend who is an amazing producer and mixer.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'm a big Justin Vernon fan so probably him
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both are needed in my opinion. For me analog gives a lot of warmth that digital can't always replicate but digital is very quick and easy and with some work can sound just as good to the common ear.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I'll give a 100% in every single project. Every client, every song, every job is just as important to me.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Besides being able to do what I love and what I'm good at it's very satisfying to hear an artist say the song that I produced exceed their dream and expectation.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Don't go with the first producer and studio you come across. It takes time to find the person who actually cares about you and your music and not just the money but it's always worth it.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Teenage Engineering Op1, opz, prophet 6 and zoom h6
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Typically I'm asking... - What's your budget for this project? - What's your timeline? - What's your goal for this production? - Who are your musical inspirations? - What Inspired this song? - What do you want this song to make you and the listener feel?
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Keep going. A lot of times a song will feel like it's hitting a wall and that it's not worth it. It's in those times that pushing forward will produce something beautiful and worth it.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Typically I work with Pop/Indie pop, Indie folk/rock and any type of experimental type of music. Though I throughly enjoy and have experience in electronic and hip hop. I also have expertise in ccm and worship music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is being able to interpret the vision inside an artist's head and turn it into a reality. This process is about you and not me so it's important for me to take the time to make that happen.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Strong melodies, Arrangement skills, Multi-instrumentation, and Unique & creative production
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Typically my sessions are remote so because of this I'll meet the client first through zoom and talk about their dream and direction for the song. From there we'll work out the arrangement and I'll put together a demo. If they're local then I'll have them come to the studio and record a rough vocal demo. If the client isn't local then they'll record the rough vocal themselves or in a local studio. After the demo is done I'll start recording the final instrumentation and production over top. I can move pretty quickly on an idea so I stay in pretty frequent communication to ensure my production ideas are meshing with the clients vision for the song. In the final step I let the artist sit with the production to make sure it's exactly what they want. I'll make the proper adjustments from there if any, and then prep the song for mixing and mastering!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have my own home studio that where I'm using an UA Apollo and UA 4710d for A/D conversion into Logic Pro and Ableton Suite along with other high quality outboard gear. The studio has some of my favorite mics, featuring AEA ribbon mics and a U47 clone. I have a great collection of instruments and amps featuring vintage Gibsons guitars, fender amps and guitars, and classic synthesizers.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Justin Vernon, Jim-e-Stack, BJ Burton, Francis and The Lights, Aaron Dessener, Kanye West, Mike Dean, Jack Antonoff
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most of the time I'm producing a song for a client. I'll take a finished song or even sometimes co-write with the client and then work out the arrangement together and then record all the instrumentation from there.
