If you clicked here on our ‘Shop’ page, you already know that your music, recordings or production needs that expert touch that only decades of experience can provide. If you’re not sure of exactly what you need, we offer a free review of your work. This not only can save you paying for services you don’t need, but can also help identify areas that could use improvement in your project.
Price based on consultation. Whether you’re a solo artist or a band, tell us what your goal is and we’ll tell you the best route to get there. If you already have a song production in the works, use our “Free Listen” button for suggestions on how to finish it the best way possible.

Upload your song here as a high quality (128kb or higher) mp3 and we will take a listen. We’re happy to give you a critique of your recording, mix or song master. Who needs this service? Anyone who can’t decide whether that mix is ‘right’. Or if their master is ‘too compressed’, or if your arrangement could be better.
What is this button not for? We’re not a label, we’re not an A&R department, we don’t know radio people and we don’t book tours. So please don’t upload your song asking for a record deal, radio play, or if we can pitch your songs to major artists. This is a tool to help you make your music as great as possible.
