Introduction: Hey there, I'm a music producer based in LA. I started performing professionally as a teenager in the Pacific Northwest (saxophone in jazz combos, rock bands, and big bands) but quickly found a love and talent for producing. Whether making beats for a rapper, building a song with a singer/songwriter, or tracking a live band; making a recording sound as good as it possibly can while staying true to the artistic vision of a song is my passion! I studied music production, mixing, and mastering at Cre8 Music Academy in partnership with Westlake Studios (Michael Jackson, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, etc.). Depending on budget we can either use my studio space in Koreatown (Death Star Studios) or my home studio in Silver Lake... or a combination of the two.

I recorded for the first time ever. Levi made it super comfortable and easy. My nerves went away pretty quickly. He definitely knows what he is doing and is speedy and efficient with his work. Gives great feedback and is fun to work with! Studio feels relaxing and chill like a lounge, which I liked as well.

Levi is one of if not the best guy’s I worked with in terms of trying to get my music career started. He’s very intelligent, understanding, easy going and informative. It took him little to no time at all to respond back once I contacted him with an idea and ever since then we stayed in touch. (Pause)

Didn’t work with him YET!! But very responsive and punctual within messaging. Also, it seems he wants what’s best for your musical vision regardless if he’s apart of it!!

Working with Levi was a completely pleasurable experience from start to finish. He’s very thorough; super patient; extremely creative; and genuinely invested in his music projects. He puts passion into making music and that gets lost so much during production from time to time. I’m grateful to have worked with him and as a result am looking forward to many future projects.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is pretty dependent on the project so feel free to reach out and we can talk through the details.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I have a few questions I start with to make sure we're aligned on what is to be delivered i.e. is this a new production, and production finishing, a vocal session, vocal comp/tune, mixing, mastering etc. etc.. Usually we'll talk about the differences and purpose of each of those areas of the process. Then we will land on a couple reference songs and define what specific elements are good reference points to aim for or avoid. Then we'll typically start making either together in the studio here in LA or remotely. Checking in to make sure we're going the right direction along the way!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I studied music performance at Oregon State University and also trained at the Cre8 Music Academy here in Los Angeles in partnership with Westlake Recording Studios (Michael Jackson, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, etc.).
