What is in a song... what magic is conjured...
Words & Music cast by thine own being.
Dancing in the firmament of life.
Is it not the divine itself
manifesting into that subtle form...what we call music & song.
So join me my friends and dance the dance of merriment and life,
the dance of the divine.
SCROLL TO NAVIGATE
The ethos of True Sound Productions is to keep the sound true and honest. True to the voice, and instruments, the way they are played, and the relationship between them.
The most important element in this being the feel of the production, to keep it natural and serve the song, thereby making it a True Sound Production.
I work closely with the artist and the musicians/band, building a relationship of trust and care, so that they can be inspired to deliver a performance that is true to the expression within them and the song being recorded.
I love producing artists that desire to keep it real, so get in touch if you want to arrange a meeting to take things further.
here are some of my previous productions & arrangements on Spotify
PRODUCTION & Arrangement
The art of production and musical arrangement for me personally is the ability to prismatically visualise sonically the finished record. It's to hear a song or set of songs and instinctively know what fits that set of chords, melodies and lyrics. From how the vocals are delivered, to hearing the accompanying bass line and drum rhythm. From every instrument involved, what parts they are playing, to how it is played, so that tastefully with feeling everything fits within the dynamic of the overall production and arrangement.
Sometimes I will know and create the exact parts for each instrument and sometimes I will want to unravel that with the artist and musicians involved in the recording. It is always for me about serving the song and vison I feel is true for that song.
When working with singer songwriters and bands, as I am an artist myself I understand the desire to stay true to oneself and therefore always listen to what the artist/band themselves are looking to achieve.
In layman's terms I see my position as producer and arranger as analogous to a that of a director on a film.
You will find a few examples to your left, to give you an idea of some of my previous productions and musical arrangements.
Mixing and mastering are vital aspects in the process of making a record. As the mix for me is so integral to how I hear and perceive the finished production I often either co-mix the session along with the chosen mix engineer or will deliver specific mix notes for each track and instrument. When it comes to mastering again like mixing this is an art unto it's self and not to be taken lightly.
I will recommend which mix engineer and mastering engineer is best suited to your project based on your budget.
Which studio to use...?
I work with a selection of recordings studios, depending on your budget and requirements, and if needs be will even turn a living space into the recording studio
(the brass section on 'SHINE' was recorded
in my living room). Whether analogue recording to tape, recording to pro-tools or logic, or a combination of the both, whether recording live in the studio or tracking, I approach every project individually.
Arrangement +MUSICAL DIRECTION
If you're looking for a musical arranger to arrange brass parts, drums rhythms or the vibe for the bass line, amongst other things and/or want my expertise in working with the musicians as a musical director to bring out the best in them for the record get in touch using the contact form above.
I look forward to hearing from you
