Q. Why should I hire you instead of some company like SoundBetter, ItyDity, Musicbed, or SoundPros?
A. The simple answer is the format. Working with me is a one-on-one personalized experience, quality vs. quantity. There is no intermediary, and I only take on a limited number of projects a month, allowing me to remain focused on nurturing new talent. You will always have direct access to me and no waiting days between contact. You're not just another number, and your success is my success.
Q. Can you work with my budget?
A. Yes, I realize everyone has different needs, and I will do my best to accommodate your budget within reason. We can discuss your goals and develop a plan to achieve them without sacrificing product quality.
Q. But I know this person with a computer and a DAW who said they would produce, mix and master my song for $50. Why shouldn't I use them?
A. I hate to use the cliché, "You get what you pay for." But in this case, it is true. Many people with a computer and a small bedroom "studio" consider themselves "producers." Producer and engineer are words used too loosely these days, significantly affecting the quality of work and the entire music industry. I have been working on music for a long time and have honed my craft, and I firmly believe in letting my work speak for itself. Be sure to listen to the samples on the website. You might not find the exact genre you are aiming at, but you will get a good sense of the quality I turn out. I love a challenge and can't wait to turn the musical vision in your head into a reality!
Q. What separates you from the rest?
A. I take great pride in my work and am a perfectionist. Every project is personal, and the final product reflects who I am as a professional. When your song gets released, it also has my name attached. My reputation rides on this, as does my potential for future business. I will only stop once you are ecstatic with your music.
Q. How much involvement will you have in my sound?
A. I will have as much or as little as you want. We will work as a team. If you have a solid vision, I will follow your lead. If you only have a rough sketch idea for your song, we will flesh it out and turn it into a beautiful complete arrangement.
Q. Can you help me get my music online?
A. Yes! I will ensure your music gets delivered to all the streaming platforms in the proper format. I will also follow your journey as an artist once everything goes live. You have a lifelong musical partner in me!
Q. Can I work with you in person to record my vocals, guitar, or keyboard?
A. Yes! I have a perfect studio setup to work with solo artists and singer-songwriter types. My room has a phenomenal set of tools and different vocal chains to suit any vocalist, guitarist, or keyboardist who wants to track.
Q. Can you help me write a song if all I do is write lyrics and sing?
A. Yes! I am a full instrumentalist. We can collaborate to take your ideas and flesh them out into a complete song.
Q. What genres do you work in?
A. I am a music connoisseur. I love all music! And although I specialize mainly in electronic styles like pop, EDM, synth-pop, synth-wave, and electronica, I also work with solo artists, singer-songwriters, rock, metal, rap, hip-hop, R&B, country, folk, and blues. So the answer to the question is all of them!
