Tom has been producing, mixing & mastering not only his own projects and releases for the past 10 years, but is also offering his services commercially to anybody else (see discography). He's worked on everything from pop to death metal to jazz to electronic music in a multitude of studios and situations all over the world and has developed strategies and approaches to bring out your own unique sound and identity, regardless of genre.
"Being a music producer can mean different things, depending on the situation. On some projects, it means being extremely involved in the writing, arranging, recording and engineering of the music. Sometimes it´s a matter of managing logistics, expectations, making sure everybody is on time and in top shape. It can mean everything from being "the fifth beatle" to shutting the hell up and making sure the band is able to do their thing without interference and compromise. That´s why it´s so important to establish good communication at the beginning and figuring out what exactly the artist needs on any given individual project"
"Perhaps my most valuable skill in the studio is the experience and trained ear that I´ve gained from literally mixing hundreds of songs over the years, in more genres than I can count. Not only am I at the top of my game as a mixer and am constantly looking for ways to get even better, but I can now bring this unique perspective into my work as a producer or guitar player because even before recording a part, I´ll know instinctively how it needs to sit in the mix and what needs to be done to get there. And quite honestly, while I started mixing early on in my career out of sheer necessity, I quickly discovered that it actually is one of my absolute favorite things to do: I love constructing mixes that feel huge, with the goal being that you should be able to "get" the music on first listen, but that you´ll also discover new details and layers every time you come back. I want my mixes to sound as big as possible, larger than life, as rich in details as in emotional impact on the listener"
