THEY SAY "HUNGER MAKES A GOOD COOK!"  WHEN REFERRING TO MUSIC, I TRULY BELIEVE IN THAT STATEMENT. also, THERE IS ONLY SO MUCH FAST-FOOD GRUB WE CAN ACTUALLY eat (and be healthy). WE ALL KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO 'EAT' GOOD, so lets make good MUSIC... 

IT all STARTS WITH QUALITY INGREDIENTS, A great song, A GREAT RECORDING...

Recording

Production begins with a critical listening session at new ToneCrafters Studio (not pictured above), online or at a local Starbucks.  I like to absorb your thoughts, tastes and ideas before I press record. This approach has proven integral to creative success in the studio.

Mixing

Im a firm believer of correct gain staging for maximum headroom and clarity to corrective and strategic EQ to allow your craft to fit nicely in the mix. The appropriate compression creates energy and balance whilst creative touches of reverb, delay, and other effects to enhance musicality.

Mastering

Your masterpiece is unique to the world, no two songs are ever the same! So, your masterpiece should be approached in a unique way to bring about the professional touch it truely deserves.

CONGRATULATIONS SHERWIN!

Im pleased to announce that my client and friend Sherwin Gardner's "Greater" album debuts at #4 on the Gospel Album Billboard Chart.

Humble, blessed and stuck for a few words Sherwin recants his rough journey to the top.  "Its only because of God's grace Im alive and steadfast" is the understatement of the year so far.  Sherwin grew up in a tiny village in Brazil, Trinidad and Tobago and, when not touring round the world, you find him spreading bible-centric messages of the hope that can only be found in Jesus. Read more about our awesome project here...
