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.”

I produce, mix and master lots of records for some great bands at my studio Cannon Found Soundation. In the past I have been lucky enough to make great records with bands like The Cure, Animal Collective, The Menzingers, The Misfits, Limp Bizkit, Basement, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Somos, Man Overboard, Leftover Crack, Transit, Morning Glory, Lifetime, Saves The Day and a ton more.

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 am a marketing consultant presently doing projects with Manic Merch (the first affordable on-demand merch printer for creatives), various music artists with upcoming releases, and I’m presently developing  more podcasts with Atlantic Records and other artists.

I am a founder of NoiseCreators, a service that connects musicians with the best producers making music today.
