If you’re looking at this page you’ve probably asked me what I do as a music producer. Good news—I’ve created this page just for you. For quick answers about how we can work together, visit my services.
Artists hire me to help them make their records.
• I do everything required in the process of making a record, including development (writing & arrangement) pre-production (planning & research), engineering, composing scores and sourcing sessions musicians, post-production (additional recording & editing), and mixing.
• I work in my own boutique studio and in professional studios.
• I sometimes perform on my clients’ records. I play drums, bass, guitar, keys, auxiliary percussion, harmonica, analog synthesizers, drum machines, and other toys.
• I do consultations on anything from DIY advice to album sequencing (song order), and I can be hired for any of these services individually or as part of a production package. I do not master, which is the process of preparing the final mixes for market consumption.
A solo artist wants to make a record and doesn’t have a band. We evaluate her songs and talk about how the record should sound. After some rehearsals, I record the artist singing and playing her instrument. Then I record myself playing drums, bass, guitar or keys, and add these or other layers to her original takes. Next I write accompaniments for strings or horns and bring in session musicians to play over our tracks. After some final editing and arranging, I mix. Off to mastering!
A band rents out a studio and wants me there to help them get the most out of their sessions. We establish goals for the record, then during the sessions I facilitate communication between artist and engineer while supporting workflow. I help get the best performances and sound possible while making sure we capture everything we came to record, on time and within budget.
Hope that helps! If you have any more questions, contact me.
