Why do I need a producer?


Read the column I wrote on this very topic for CASA.org.

As a producer, it’s my job to help you define the sound and vision of your album to make it the very best that it can be. Once we define a vision together, I can work with you on all the details necessary to execute the album – from coaching singers in the studio to making choices about your mix engineers.

My background as a producer comes from years of vocal training, practice, and of critical a cappella listening as a reviewer for both RARB and CASA. I have a large base of experience in all different types of a cappella music, and I can use that experience in many different production capacities to help you optimally plan and execute your album.

My rates vary depending on my level of involvement with the project, so please contact me if you’re interested in having me involved with the production of your album!
