Since I started back in 1988, I’ve been blessed to engineer and produce in major recording studios in Nashville, New York, Los Angeles and Europe with major artists for major labels, but to tell the truth, I’m just as proud of the work I’ve done for people you may never hear of.
The Experience of recording
See, I realized early on that helping people create music was much more than the task of getting it done, but more about the experience of doing it. When I started back in Asheville, North Carolina, I noticed that people coming to the studio to record were not only taking a week out to travel and record, but also, they were spending hard-earned money to do it. It clarified just how important the "experience" of recording was. I started making working with me EASY and FUN!
Editing, Producing and Mixing
I’ve done everything from tracking the world’s best musicians in the world’s best studios, to recording an a cappella record in a lake house to recording the world's best orchestras in Europe.
After moving to Nashville in 1996, I built my own dream studio.. actually 3 of them. I became known as a mixer in Nashville. I adapted to Digital Audio Workstations before they became so prevalent in home recording. This allowed me to become good and quick at tightening up tracks, tuning vocals, adding subtle overdubs to tracks to really make them stand out.
I’ve produced records and mixed (playlist). I love arranging vocals, songwriting, arranging…demoing songs
I’ve been sent files from all over the world to mix by myself and I’ve sat in the room with some super talented people. I love to mix. I love to Master, I love to Produce (playlist below)
How Can I help Your Music?
Since 2001, I've been everything from a musical director (where you arrange and lead the band) to a Front of House Engineer (mixing the sound), to a consultant (where you simply advise churches as to which direction to go most efficiently).
Currently, I serve part-time at Crosspointe Church in Anaheim, CA where I recruit, train and LEARN from some great volunteers. Since I've been here, we've gone from 3 volunteers on any given Sunday to 15 and growing! Our church utilizes volunteers... so it's important that they are all in the "right seats on the bus".
How Can I Help Your church?
Two of my favorite things to do are:
I have a website where I teach people to produce and mix. It's called MixCoach. I started it back in 2010 and it's going strong. My favorite moments are when I take difficult topics and break them down to easy to understand stories and illustrations... To hear the words, "I totally understand this now" are among my favorite things to hear.
