Massimo DiStefano on SoundBetter

I'm a Nashville based musician with 10+ years of experience in live, and studio settings. When working on a session, I like to focus on the song(s) as a whole, serving the overall theme and vibe to make the songs reach their highest potential. I look forward to hearing from anyone who's ready to make some killer music!

Hi, I'm Massimo and have been in and around the music business for over a decade with various artists including, Justin Schumacher, Jack Settle, Lydia Simonds, John Angotti, Brian Connelly, and Tate Pendleton.
My roots definitely stem from a 70's, an 80's classic rock background, with a modern twist influenced by people like Ben Rector and John Mayer.
Seeing a song come to its fruition is something I take great pride and joy in, no matter the genre. I'm very happy to take demos and turn them into something the artist and listeners love. All I need is an idea for your vision of the song so we can take it to the next level.
I currently record, edit, mix, and master in the latest version of Protools and use the Behringer X Air XR18 to record. I do have access to more quality studio space as well if the sounds from my home studio are not the desired goal.
