Every project starts with careful planning and a deep dive into your goals. What you hope to accomplish with this song determines the best direction for how we produce it. Our process is efficient… From research and creating a timeline to picking the players and finishing out demos. You’ll have the clarity you need before we ever press a button.
This is the fun part. To us, it’s not about “services” but instead pulling together all of the creative pieces needed to achieve the sound that you hear in your head. This may include… Songwriting, production, live instrumentation, recording, mixing, mastering, and more. We have an extensive network of players and audio professionals that we can loop in on each project. Plus! You get us, Andy & Jake, a dynamic duo. Jake excels at organic production, mixing, and instrumentation. Andy excels at electronic production/programming, mixing, and mastering.
Our studios are located in Brooklyn and London, but we are able to work remotely with anyone in the world.
THE GAME PLAN
After your project is done… It isn’t over. The extra benefit of working with us is our combined many years of experiences in the music industry. We want to sit down and have a consulting session with you so you’re clear on what your next best steps should be.
MUSIC FOR MEDIA
If you are a brand, agency, or filmmaker we can create the perfect soundtrack to your story. We understand the subtle blend of art and commerce and have years of experience making music that compels your viewers or potential customers to feel and/or take action.
