Music Producer and Artist Development

It has been my experience as an active musician , composer , band leader and producer that music occurs in many different ways. I am fully comfortable with any role that helps music get recorded. Many times this involves observing and aiding someone else’s vision,  respecting a bands’ determination to self-produce, or most commonly being the outside voice that maintains a reasonable workflow and process in achieving a successful recording within the reality of budget and schedules. I am connected with many musicians who can bring extra sound and instruments on short notice. I have studio and university training in conducting and arranging  and am experienced in common instruments and musical ideas to adorn songs and albums. I have produced many albums in and out of my studio in addition to engineering or simply mastering them. Whether I’m supporting a band’s decision making or developing someone’s sound through their songs , it is a big part of what gets done at Little Bullhorn.
