    Killian is phenomenal to work with. He understood my vision, my style, and helped bring the touches to my song I felt were missing. I’m an extremely young artist, and I appreciate his guidance. Will definitely be working with Killian on my other songs.

    Killian brought dynamics & the underlying and very important feel & groove to the song. He went above & beyond on my vocal. He built on the ideas of what had already been produced as a demo and elevated it to a Modern Pop Ballad that "moved me emotionally". Highly recommend.

    I've worked with many producers over the years, but Killian is far and away the best! No one can bring a track to life the way he can. Talent level is totally off the charts. Lucky to be working with this legend!

I love to add my own taste/vibe to the track while understanding/maintaining the artists vision. It is all about team work!

  35. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A lot of times i will also help them get their music in front of publishers/labels and managers through my contacts here in Los Angeles.

  39. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  40. A: That having more instruments and tracks means better sounding songs/mixes. Its all about doing whats best for the song! Less is sometimes more but then again sometimes MORE IS MORE!! It's all about the song!
