Producing Your Music and Songs

Editing | Production | Mixing - I'm always happy to talk to an artist about their project and ideas.

Input, understanding and creativity takes your music from a demo stage to a masterpiece that will stand out amongst so many others!

I value your vision as an artist and am here to guide and support your work. I can set up meetings on Skype or arrange a call to talk about the track/project, your ideas and sound preferences well in advance before we start work. This makes the project more personal and will get the best out of the sessions.

Our small select group of outside musicians, producers and composers gives an endless opportunity to bring extra colors out in your music you may not have known exits if needed from grand piano, orchestral players, arrangements and so on the options are limitless!

If you are interested in having someone edit previously recorded sessions from restoration, timing issues or just general cleanup just drop me a line.

Please contact me for my project, session and hourly rates
