Work with me
I'd love to be a part of your next recording. Here are ways I can help.
I've got a ton of great guitars, amps and pedals in my studio and I love playing on records. Send me your songs and I can send you back guitar parts in whatever format you need. Acoustic and/or electric. I work in ProTools and Logic.
I've had the honor of singing BGV's on hundreds of records and it's something I love to do. Send me your songs and I'll send back harmonies, oohs, aahs, and whatever else we think the song needs.
I don't have time to produce much these days, but I'm always happy to have the conversation if you think we might be a good fit. I've got a well-stocked home studio and a network of world-class musicians and engineers. Please reach out and we'll see if I'm able to serve you.
I learned how to mix from working alongside mixing legends Vance Powell and Shane Wilson and watching and listening. While I don't claim to compare to their genius, I've picked up some tricks and have been honored to mix a few dozen records that clients loved.
I mix in ProTools but can accept Logic files as well.
My heart is wired to help artists be who they are meant to be.
I’d love to help you think through your songwriting, your goals as an artist, the challenges you’re facing and the incredible amount of choices you could make (but don’t know that you should) to get your music heard by a bigger audience. I don’t claim to have all the answers, but I believe my experience is worth sharing and I know, as an artist, how much it means to have someone help me make sense of the jumble in my head.
If your artistry and business have grown to the point of seeking partnership in a record label, booking agent or manager I can help in facilitating those meetings, as well. And I want to make sure you’re ready first.
This is usually an hour-long conversation which includes listening to songs, talking about songs, talking about goals, how to achieve them, how to market your music, what to do with your recorded music, etc... This can be done over phone, Skype, or in person in Nashville
This is a 3-12 month commitment of weekly “homework assignments” for songwriting and record listening, availability to listen and critique new songs, be “on call” with ongoing conversations as questions and opportunities arise, t0 set up writer and producer appointments, and oversee general artist growth. The end goal is for you to be ready to meet with record labels, managers and agents.
I can help you write, finish and/or edit your songs. Can be done at my studio or over Skype/Facetime.
Fee is recoupable if the songs get cut or placed.
This is what I do most in my work with record labels: Overseeing the creative and logistical process of making an album, critiquing production, mixes and mastering and helping with overall artist and market vision. Includes song curation, new song creation, co-writes and producer appointments, mix and mastering QC, invoicing and scheduling.
