Mikey Canoy on SoundBetter

Hello. my name is Mikey Canoy, and I am a music producer out of Richmond, VA. I often spend my time creating and performing with my band Set For Tomorrow. With over a decade of experience performing, writing and producing music, I am here to offer any help I can to help you make your music better.

With over a decade of experience, I am here to help you realize your creative vision and execute with full formulated production. I can take something as simple as a phone recording and turn it into a full production you're proud of. I love big rock and modern sounding productions, rich with saturation and punchy elements, all while maintaining an analog "feel". I can add layers, harmonies, keys and various production elements to level up the sound.

    Mikey was an absolute pleasure to work with. We travelled from Rochester, NY to work with him in his studio, and he couldn’t have given us a better experience if he tried. From being an immaculate songwriter, to a beast producer, to just being an overall great guy, this is the man you want to work with to make your track BEEFY!

    Working with Mikey has been a very inspiring experience. I use the word inspiring because not only does he have amazing recording quality, but he encourages you to do your best, and to breach out your comfort zone to create the best product possible. I’ve been to other producers, but I feel like I get a coach and a producer when I come to Mikey. It’s always all out of love, and just wanting to see the best out of others. Great guy, great product.

    Honestly working with Mikey is a dream, he really takes a demo and sends it into the stratosphere with his record label level of production. And he's so easy to work with too! Doing zoom sessions with him have felt like just screwing around with a friend and out comes a really cool song, he's always open to suggestions and really hones in what youre going for with each song. 10/10 will def work with him for many more tracks.

    After tracking in a local studio we brought our 10 track LP to Mikey for mixing/mastering. (band: Noctvrnal Cvlt album:Don't Be Afraid of the Dark) The workflow, correspondence, and efficiency was super fast, and he was able to quickly edit and dial in the exact tones and adjustments we requested. The finished product exceeded our expectations and elevated our album to the professional sound we were looking for.

    Mikey is an extraordinarily talented musician and producer. I have worked with Mikey for multiple projects across different genres and he consistently delivers beyond my expectations.

    Mikey brings unique ideas to the table that I haven’t seen anywhere in the industry. He has a talent for being able to see your vision for your project clearly and delivering something special every time.

    I highly recommend Mikey to any musician for their recording needs. Best in Richmond hands down.

    Mikey is the real deal guys! I hit him up to help me with a song idea I've been working on for YEARS and all I had was a phone recording of me playing it, and OH MY GOD. He turned my song into a full on masterpiece! I can not recommend him enough, do yourselves a favor and bring your project to him, you won't be disappointed!

    Mikey is awesome. He’s extremely knowledgeable in every aspect of the process. This was our first time doing something like this and he made the experience so easy for us. Having tracked with him made us want to jump straight into another project immediately. Hell of an experience, hell of an engineer, hell of a product.

    I have been working with Mikey for years on various projects. He has always delivered the BEST possible experience you could ever have with a producer. He provides game changing tips while not taking over the whole thing. He has done so much for me and many many others over the years and I am forever grateful for that. He works fast as hell and will not let you leave without an amazing finished product. He is an amazing dude too. Such a great guy to work with. If you’re not working with Mikey on your music, then what the fuck are you doing??? BOOK HIM

    Mikey’s mixing and mastering skills are already that of a household name engineer, and he’s still eager to learn every day and humble to get feedback from his peers and gladly accepts criticism, whenever there is some, which only proves that sky is the limit for him. Super easy-going attitude while being professional to a tee. Would highly recommend!

    Mikey is the complete package. His technical ability as an engineer and command of his tools is industry standard. He can work intuitively as a creative collaborator and has facility on guitar, bass, drums, and vocals, keys and sound design, giving him so much to contribute to an arrangement that can transform initial ideas at any stage of development into dense productions. Every session is an adventure and he has an excellent combination of discipline and personality to bring the best out of the artist while bringing exactly what is needed to the table from what he has to offer.

    My band and I worked with Mikey on our EP and had such a wonderful experience.
    Mikey is extremely professional yet easygoing and lovely to work with. He does an amazing job with recording and will really go the distance to achieve the sound you want and make sure everything is cohesive. 10/10 experience!

    I have worked on a couple of projects with Mikey. I can say with confidence that he is one of the best producers to work with. He has an extraordinary ability to connect with his clients and create a productive and creative atmosphere. Mikey is also extremely concise in terms of sonic cohesion, so if you plan to work on a lengthier body of work such as an EP or LP, Mikey is the best choice for it! Not to say he can’t also produce an amazing sounding single for you!

    I’ve worked with Mikey for years. He’s a patient engineer that really cares about every client he has. No awkward silences, no intimidation. He will hear your idea and help you and make suggestions but ultimately he will bring YOUR vision to life. There isn’t a more humble engineer to work with.

    I have been working with Mikey from personal music projects to parodies and continue coming back to work with him. The reason is how genuine he is when he does everything he can to provide you the sound you want, when you want it.
