Full or additional Production
This involves the arranging, tracking and editing of all instruments and vocals. The final steps are mixing and mastering. Maybe you’ve already recorded most or part of your song or have your own beat. We can add those finishing touches to the track or produce your vocals to make your song “radio ready”.
Pete has produced and coached hundreds of vocalists. Being a vocalist himself he has a unique perspective on vocal recording and he strives to capture vocals which balance unbridled emotion with technical excellence. The winning combination is having great equipment and a producer/engineer with outstanding ears and years of experience. Listen...
This involves taking your pre-existing tracks and carefully blending them using the latest techniques of equalization, compression, and the use of ambient and special effects to create fresh industry standard mixes.
If you are a singer or aspiring artist but don’t write, or perhaps you just have some lyric or melodic ideas, we can help you develop, finish and polish them into a quality song. We also custom write songs for artists based on their personal experiences and their unique singing style. Each song is tailored to bring out the best each individual artist has to offer.
This involves putting the finishing touches on your existing mixes, making them punchy, clear and loud. Finally we meticulously balance the level, color and timing between each track of a full album. For more information...
