It's a collaborative process that starts with picking the right songs to make a cohesive and impactful statement. I encourage artists to step out of their comfort zone to explore the sounds and styles that may eventually become their own. Let's take a look at each song and consider different arrangements, tempos, keys and instrumentation. Lyrics also play such an important role that need not be overlooked. I prefer to have them printed out so we can go over them together and iron out anything that isn't making the cut.
I work in and around Austin, Tx. Orb Recording Studios is my home base for recording. They have incredible sounding rooms and choice gear.

Hiring a professional engineer is essential for every recording project. I have been engineering full time since 2004 and have developed a knack for recording surgically tight, yet enormous sounding drums and lush dreamy guitars. I also highly enjoy live tracking with a full band. Tracking / comping / editing vocals is a breeze. I promise to make it fun and efficient.
I'm also available to edit your tracks. What's the problem? I can mostly likely get you fixed up.
