Where the Musical Magic Happens
Any artist has a vision of what they want their song or album to sound like, but often after recording it lacks that special something they were looking for. Working with a good producer takes your project to a new level and adds that spark that makes it stand out. Listen to a song on the radio and try and dissect what the song would sound like without the studio add on's, not so great anymore is it? Anyone can press 'record', a good producer will guide you through harmonies, riffs and different ideas to fill up your song. The next time you're looking for a producer, ask yourself whether this person is an artist or just someone pressing the record button......
After writing - composing and producing music for many years as a freelance producer, I decided to open my own studio setup the way I want. With our high end recording equipment, we get any sound you need.
Artists enjoy spending time at the creative environment of a studio, but being billed by the minute compromises their time and forces a rush product to stay within their budget. I decided to put the music first and ensure that every project we make is a work of art, and I bill a flat rate so that the artists can feel relaxed and put due diligence into their art.
As a founding member of Canada's premier vocal competition (www.hiddentalentcanada.com), I have met and worked with a wide array of artists gathering inspiration over the years. I have worked on major projects and sat in on sessions with North America's biggest producers, I constantly keep abreast of trends and tips that major US labels use for today's hottest tracks.
Feel free to drop me a line and tell me about your project and needs, let's turn your idea into either a radio track or work of art your can share on YouTube.
