Recording & Mixing
Jazz, CLASSICAL, WORLD, POP AND INBETWEEN
Imagine a beautiful leaf growing from a branch on a majestic tree. As she grows and takes in life energy from the juices flowing through the veins of the tree, she forms her own unique shape, form and colors. When the time is right the wind takes her on a journey into the world.
Now think of the leaf as being your music.

REadying your music for its journey into the world.
The unique acoustics and top notch recording facilities of MCO Studio 2 is what I often rely on when tracking. Musicians love the sound and inspirational vibe of this historical recording studio. Are you ready to experience the magic that creates your legacy?
I can create a setting where you can feel free to be creative. Together we can define your sound. I'll make all the technicalities seem invisible so you can focus completely on what is important: your music, the emotion, its story.
After all the hard work of songwriting and capturing your best performances on tape is done, it is time to bring your music to its full sonic potential! This will turn your raw tracks into professional recordings with depth, sparkle and character.
