Scott Mathson on SoundBetter

Partnered with one of Montana's oldest studios, I'm excited to share my passion for music with others. Music communicates emotion and I create mixes, produce songs, and play parts that ensure that. With an added emphasis on groove, feel, texture, and tonality.

Hey, I'm Scott Mathson, a Montana-based musician, engineer, and producer who started playing drums over 20 years ago. I've also played guitar for more than 15 years, have been singing for about just as long, and more recently have picked up banjo, keys, and more.

I've always personally enjoyed songwriting, the fulfillment that comes from live music, as well as all aspects of the recording and production process. I started my first studio in 2009.

I've been told that I put people at ease, which brings out the most vulnerable parts of the artists that I collaborate with. Music is a part of me—it's in my core—it's intuitive to me, and I naturally communicate about melodies, rhythms, lyrics, harmonies, and can go much deeper into the details if need be.

Lately I've been working on producing/releasing my own album of original songs, alongside staying busy with work, fly fishing around MT, playing gigs, and performing in choirs.

  1. Review by Mat Keller

    Scott is passionate about his work and will care about making your recording sound authentic and emotionally powerful. He doesn't cut corners. In addition to being professional and knowledgeable about recording techniques, he was always willing to try things in a different or creative/unconventional way. Whether you are needing ideas to help you arrange/produce your song or you already know what you want Scott's your guy and he can get it done! Very talented and kind person and I highly recommend his services.

  2. Review by Jimmy T.

    Scott was a crucial part of the making of my album, Budding of the Branches. His ears are second to none, and he consistently gave me valuable feedback with a great mix of both positive and constructive elements. Definitely will be working with Scott again on future projects!
