Producer and engineer with experience in multiple genres from folk and rock to EDM and trap.
Getting his start in his teenage years, Brendan began his career in music in the pop punk and emo scene, making demos out of his bedroom and parent's living room. As his skills and tastes expanded, he began delving into indie rock and folk, classical compositions, and eventually electronic music.
As a producer, Brendan now specializes in electronic music, able to draw on his eclectic background to create unique, genre-bending ideas and melodies. From his years working in multiple genres, he's gained an understanding of the nuances of each genre and can help turn your idea into a reality, whether it's in production, mixing or mastering.

What an impeccable job you've done! Thank you so much!
Brendan was very welcoming and easy to work with. He had an accommodating schedule and participated in creative discussions. In our 8-hr session we worked on additional production and pre-mixing for 3 songs. Brendan was very professional and talented.
Interview with Brendan Han
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Currently I am involved in three projects: singer/songwriter for indie folk band Bird & Thorn, producer in EDM duo TAMA UCXI, and producer in pop band RALLEY. They are three very different projects and I'm always bouncing ideas between them getting inspired in new and unique ways. I also have a big backlog of various projects of varying genres (indie, piano, classical, electronic) that will hopefully one day find a platform to be released on.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: As someone who has used Sound Better as a client before I think it's best to find a provider who can best see your vision. I would say find someone not just with the biggest credits, but credits that show s/he can easily understand the vibe you're going for.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I love the combination of organic and electronic sounds, so whenever I can I like to incorporate more classical or orchestral instruments into my electronic productions. I love pizzicato strings, big taiko drums, and flutes.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Right now I would love to work with Porter Robinson. He's been such a major influence within the genre of electronic music and I think he's inspired a generation of producers with his music.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: As vague and cheesy as it may sound, I think I can bring emotion to a song. I'm always searching for music and art that moves me most and when I'm working on music I try to create emotionally moving melodies and chord progressions. And then I try to mix them in a way that emphasizes that emotion.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: My musical inspirations vary from electronic producers to unknown folk bands to classical artists. Some of my biggest influences over the past few years have been Ludovico Einaudi, Porter Robinson, ODESZA, and The Head and the Heart. All quite different and all impact me in a different way.
