Working with your provided tracks,

I work with your goals in mind to make sure you are completely satisfied with the mixing experience. We can also connect remotely after the mixing stage is finishing up so you can hear and make any changes that you feel are needed. 


Although I'm located between Milwaukee and Chicago, I have also mixed for multiple artists in the Great Lakes area, between the East and West coast, and even mixing sessions for artist in Peru and Turkey.


I collaborate closely with you to elevate the substance of your compositions, actively participating in production rehearsals. Through a meticulous assessment, I analyze the current state of your songs and guide you in unlocking their utmost potential through valuable suggestions.

Our collaborative process encompasses crucial elements:

  1. Determining Optimal Musical Parameters: Identifying the ideal key, tempo, and time signature for each song.

  2. Evaluating Core Components: Scrutinizing chord progressions, melodies, counter-melodies, basslines, and motifs.

  3. Proposing Harmonious Layers: Introducing layers that intricately complement and fortify each other.

  4. Cultivating Innovative Concepts: Crafting creative ideas for introductions, verses, bridges, choruses, breakdowns, and outros.

  5. Comprehensive Discussions: Engaging in thorough discussions about arrangement, tempo adjustments, strategic additions or removals of elements, and potential key changes.

These facets represent the foundational aspects of our collaboration. As our partnership evolves, I am prepared to provide even more comprehensive support tailored to your needs. Embark on this journey with me, and together, let's refine your musical creations to their highest potential.


With this service, I connect with you over a internet link for you to hear your mixes in real time as I make final adjustments to balances, reverb tails, delays, and anything else you feel needs to be done to make your song stand out.  All you need is an internet connection with a web browser, Zoom (or other video chat app), and a microphone so we can talk as we go through this service.
