What's the process of creating a song?
Many people ask what a record producer does. The simple definition is it's the person who is responsible for overseeing the song creation process from start to finish. From the booking of the studios, the conception or idea, to the development of the track, the vocal performance, the recording process, the post-production, and the budget. Whatever it takes, the producer is there.
Now what makes a great producer? I say the devil's in the details. Do we use a C800 or a ELAM 251 microphone? Will throat coat squeeze a few more bars out of my raspy voice? (Mya's secret is Mayo + Vinegar... shhh don't tell anyone!) Is this song melody strong enough or can we do better? (We can always do better!) These are the things you need to know and understand as a producer to get the best from the artist.

Looking to achieve that professional sound, but on an independent budget? Good luck. No really, you're in luck.
All of the songs you heard on my production page as well as this page, are/were mixed by me.
As a producer and a mixing engineer, I understand the things that make a great song standout. I also understand the need for a modern sound. You want the vocals to sit on top of the mix, not drowned and buried. You want the kicks and snares to be crisp. You want the instruments properly spaced. You want the song to be great!
My services are simple. 50% deposit up front, final 50% upon completion. Completion is when you are satisfied.
Session files can be uploaded through my DropBox (I'll provide instructions) and payments can be made through PayPal or in-person if you are local.
With a mix, you will receive a 24-bit WAV and 256 kbps (iTunes ready) MP3 bouncedown of the unmastered mix, the mastered mix, the acapella, the instrumental, and a TV track also if necessary. Your session files will be stored for 3 months, in case you want to re-visit the mix at any point after payment.
