Recording & Mix Engineer

Bryan Encalada on SoundBetter

I've worked in the music industry for over 5 years as a professional audio engineer and producer across different studios in the country and I've had the pleasure to collaborate with artist across various styles of music such as Hip Hop, Pop, Latin, House and Alternative Rock.

In 2016, I pursued music professionally and earned a music business degree with an emphasis in music production. I have lived both in the U.S and Ecuador and have been privileged to learn much from both cultures, their music, and very talented musicians across all genres. My focus is to take the vision of my clients and translate that idea into reality in the best possible way I can with experience, good taste, cutting edge technology and superior sound.
