My Role: Mixing / Electronic Programming
Singer / Songwriter demos
|01||Questions & Answers (acoustic) – Elvira K||Producer, Engineer, Mixing|
Magic moment when I got young estonian vocalist Elvira K. in the studio to track basics featuring Vita Tenga on Acoustic Guitar.

Final arrangement of the song featuring upright bass, drums, congas, strings and horns.
|03||Drown – Kelly Waters||Producer, Engineer, ProgrammingString Arrangement, Musical Director|
Kelly’s single from 2010 – I really like the mixture of the acoustic and electronic elements on this song. Drown was one of the first songs produced for her album using a studio band and string quartet on the choruses. This song was originally arranged electronically and replaced by live instruments throughout the recording process. Mastered by Joe Lambert.
|04||If You Want Me – Kelly Waters||Producer, Engineer, Musical Director, Mixing|
Although this song was officially unfinished I really liked the feel of the track , it’s rawness and vocal harmonies. This started as an original acoustic demo afterwards I recruited several players and directed the final live recording session.

I am fan of positive hip-hop in a big way, I worked on several tracks for Brooklyn artist King Tut, fusing hip-hop stylings with Jazz aesthetics and a full band. Multi-track mixing in excess of 80 tracks.
|10||“Lost Love” – The James Casey Group||Tracking Engineer, Mixing, Mastering|
