- MUSIC PRODUCTION
The following are a few examples of what I have produced for recording artists/performers. All of these were done at my home studio using Adobe Audition and various other programs and plug-ins for FX and mastering.
- SQUARE PEGS BABY
This is my latest pet project where I wanted to work with an amazing rapper named Stepchylde Tha Phoenix and irresistible folk vocalist named Anika. I've always been a fan of the rock/hip hop fusion and wanted to do something that had more kick, marketability and attitude than my solo work. I'm still working on finishing the album but here's the first single. I wrote and composed all except for Stepchylde's raps.
- BRIAN BENHAM - indie folk pop
Brian is a singer/songwriter/guitarist who had an album worth of songs that he wanted to have produced with a full band sound. I recorded his vocals and guitars to a scratch drum beat for each song then added the rest of the instruments myself. This track, "Life is Waiting", is one of my several favorites off the album and features Natalie Eickmeyer on backing vocals.
- DAVID VAUGHN - Pop/Alternative
David came to me with lyrics and melody for the lyrics and the main guitar lead for this called song "Punk". I composed, arranged and produced the rest of what you hear in this sample.
- SLICK LIFE - Hip Hop/Rap
Slick had a lyrical anthem describing his life growing up in the streets and needed the beat and music behind it to capture the darkness, the struggle and the hope. What I came up with was a blend of big kick for the attitude and orchestral sounds to a timeless dramatic feel. No samples were used. The track is called "Somethings Gotta Give (Hell in these streets).
- DELTA BLUES DOGS - Delta Blues
The guys from Delta Blues Dogs simply wanted to record what they do as a live duo. For this song "Terraplane", I miced up the guitar, vocal and harmonica and recorded it all live and then mixed and mastered.
- LEE COULTER - pop/rock
Here are a few examples of what I write and produce for myself as a solo recording artist.
"Booty Voodoo" -
- "Like They Used To" -
