Introduction: I help artists make records that break through the noise. I offer music production and recording services that make your voice heard. I specialize in vocals. That's my thing. Unless the vocals are great, the song doesn't stand a chance. All I care about is making your voice heard in the best way. Whether that's pop, hip hop, alternative, or singer-songwriter records, I've done it all. ​ I have over a decade of experience helping musicians make records they're proud of.

Working with Stephen has been a great honor. He’s incredibly experienced, talented, and dedicated to creating the best final product. Stephen’s calm, relaxed, and receptive demeanor made this very new experience for me that much more comfortable and riveting. I’m a songwriter with experience in lyricism and creating melody but I’ve no training in music theory nor in playing instruments, and Stephen was able to bring my songs to life from the ground-up. He walked me through the areas I had little experience in and did so with patience, enthusiasm, and no judgment. Stephen has an intuitive connection to music. He simply “knows” what sounds right within a specific soundscape and he knows exactly how to bring the vision of any song to life. He allows the artist as much or as little creative control as they desire and doesn’t just take over. He respects the integrity of the artist’s creation and simply facilitates. The studio space is very expansive, it’s the perfect temperature. Also, water and other necessities are provided, making the overall experience comfortable and accommodating. I will continue working with Stephen as long as he’s willing to put up with me, ha! I look forward to learning more from him as an artist, as well. Highly recommended!

Our band, Below Canada, was very new to the home recording process and Stephen mixed/mastered our songs for us. We struggled at first with sound quality issues and Stephen gave us expert advice on equipment to use and how to best record our instruments for maximum results. He worked with us during the whole recording process, then took our tracks and turned them into finely polished mixes. Any issue we ran into, Stephen came through for us in a big way and handled it without problems. We were very impressed with his vocal work as well. Stephen is a true artist of his craft and intuitively knows what the song needs in order to shine. He just gets it without you having to explain it. He has the technical chops to make the recording/mixing/mastering process painless. We are still hearing the big and small details he's added to each mix and are blown away with this entire experience. It has been a big learning experience for us and we have no doubt we picked the best person possible. We highly recommend Stephen and are going to use him for our next album as well!

Working with Helvig Productions was one of the best artistic experiences I've had. Stephen was so dedicated to our project and helped us bring our vision to life in a fun, safe, creative environment. One of the main reasons we chose to work with Helvig Productions was for Stephen's work with vocals. He was so helpful coaching during recording sessions and helping get the best out of each of member of our band, Maria and the Coins. The studio is absolutely beautiful and such a great space for recording!

Thank you! It makes me very happy to hear your experience was excellent. I LOVED making that album with you all and can't speak highly enough of your own dedication, talent, and kindness. I'm excited for you and the next things to come.

I got referred by a friend, and was really nervous about setting an app and meeting. upon calling I let Stephen know I never recorded professionally, he let me know all the steps and that there was no need to worry and from there I felt comfortable. Upon finally meeting he introduced himself and gave me a tour of the studio. Very professional guys down there at Helvig, these guys know exactly what their doing and they push you and encourage you to put out your best work! They'll even accommodate you to the best of their abilities, so that you feel the most "in your zone" while working. I would definitely would recommend. 10/10 experience!

Stephen is great! Not only does he have the gear, space, and technical knowledge to make pristine recordings, he also had the demeanor necessary to work with a variety of different personalities and get the best performances out of each artist. Through my own projects and working on projects for other groups, I have gotten to see first hand the way Stephen approaches the art of recording and his nuanced approach to soft skills that are hard to teach. No matter the project or style, check out Helvig Productions- you wont be disappointed!
