A truly good song sounds fantastic with simply a vocal and guitar, piano or even harmonica; while a great instrumental is all about the melody. I start with this basic foundation and really work with the artist. Once that is fine tuned we can begin the recording process.
Production is all about the journey and each step takes us to a new place that the previous step could not, and yet they are all related; interdependent if you will. Arranging adds musical diversity, signal processing provides dimension and glues it together; mixing gives it cohesion. The lyrics and melodies paint the picture, I'm here to bring out the color.
Let's talk about your project. What is your market, where is your market and how do we get there? Once we know where we are going we can map it out, figure out a budget and get you started.
It's not all ABACAB. Putting all the right stuff in all the right places gives music that undeniable lift. Sometimes a new chord is all it needs. Let me help you take your music to the next level.
Who plays what, when and how can make all the difference. And, interweaving musical ideas with great hooks adds dimension that really sells your music.
