What I Do

I am the author of Processing Creativity: The Tools, Practices And Habits Used To Make Music You’re Happy With which Tape Op says, “This is one of the best guides to making great recordings out there.” I also wrote Get More Fans: The DIY Guide To The New Music Business a book that Hypebot exclaimed, “If you had to go with just one book on DIY music biz, this would be the one.” Which is now in its eighth edition and taught at over a dozen universities.

I produce, mix and master lots of records for some great bands at my studio Found Soundation. In the past I have been lucky enough to make great records with bands like The Cure, Animal Collective, The Menzingers, “Weird” Al Yankovic, Brand New, The Misfits, Limp Bizkit, Basement, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Kevin Devine, Cavetown, Somos, Man Overboard, Leftover Crack, Transit, Morning Glory, Lifetime, Saves The Day and a ton more. I also run Podstream Studios, Times Square’s most modern podcasting & live streaming studio. 

I produce the hit podcast The New Abnormal, which regularly appears in the top ten podcasts on all of Apple Podcasts. I host Atlantic Records Inside The Album Podcast, an audio documentary series that goes further in-depth on the creative process. Episodes include Dashboard Confessional, Vance Joy, Mean Girls, Jason Mraz, Nothing.Nowhere and many more to come.  I also host the Noise Creators Podcast where I interview record producers and other music creators. I also make audio documentaries for bands in podcast form. Check out this one I made for the group Foxing.

I host the music marketing YouTube Channel Musformation where I teach musicians how to grow their fanbase from zero to 10,000 fans and consult with a wide variety of musicians on how to grow their fanbase. 

I am a marketing consultant presently doing projects with Manic Merch (the first affordable on-demand merch printer for creatives) as well as various music artists with upcoming releases.

I teach classes on recording for CreativeLive and URM Academy.
