Everything Music

I've devoted much of my life to writing, performing, and producing music. I grew up in a very music-oriented family. I woke every day to the sound of classical piano teaching and went to bed with a stereo playing whatever I was obsessed with at the time. Anything I did had a healthy dose of music involved, and that hasn't changed a bit.

Recording

Armed with a full and professional Pro Tools-based recording studio in my home, I can record anything that you need. Drums, bass, guitars, vocals, mixing, mastering, and anything else you can throw at me. Let me make your songs sound as clear and as big as a professional studio for a fraction of the price.

Recording rates start at $150 per 6-hour block or $200 per song. Discounted rates available if you need to book bigger blocks. Contact for booking.

Touring

Over the course of my career as a musician, I've played somewhere in the neighborhood of 500 shows over 40 states. I play my heart out and enjoy performing in every sense of the word. If I get the opportunity to do this every day, I will. If you need a touring guitarist or bassist, contact me and let me know what we're looking at.

I ask per diem to cover food and any extra expenses the band incurs, and additional pay varies based on the touring situation. Anywhere from free to $100 per week. I love touring, so hit me up and let's make it work.

Sessions

I'm available as a session musician for fill-in work or studio performances. The studio is my second home. I love providing input and making songs sound the best that they can. I've seen a healthy amount of professional studios over the last ten years, and know my way around tracking programs. I've got tips and tricks up my sleeve and can bring a fresh perspective to your songs. If you need session work, contact me with as much advance notice as possible and I'd love to be a part of it.

Session rates are typically $25 per session. Studio, performance, or otherwise. Contact for information.

Production

Does your song or record need help from an experienced musician with in-depth knowledge of song structure and a trained sonic ear? I can be as much a part of production as you'd like, whether I'm taking a side seat to the action and letting the song develop itself while directing tonal quality, or taking the helm and pulling apart your song to lock every instrument in as one well oiled machine. I've worked with big name producers and have a knack for bringing out the best sounds while encouraging artist development. Let me help you push your recording to it's utmost potential.

Production rates start at $250 per song. Contact for information.

Songwriting

I've been writing songs for as long as I can remember. I've listened to and studied nearly every genre, and love branching out to try new things. If you feel you need someone to write alongside and to help bring a new taste to your songs, or to fully collaborate on writing new ones, I'd love to fill those shoes. I have a private residence with a very relaxed atmosphere. You can write and not be distracted by obnoxious roommates or loud noises.

I generally don't charge for songwriting. I just ask that my name be included on credits or liner notes.

Consultation

Need an outside opinion on a song without a biased view? Need some advice on how to deal with a situation or what step to take next? I've been through a lot throughout my career. I can offer you my professional opinion and relate with some of my experiences. I won't tell you what to do, but I'll help you understand all angles and get resolution. Contact me for more information.

No charge unless it's mentioned and agreed upon, and generally only when the scenario requires extensive time.
