Introduction: 🏆Grammy nominated as of Nov 2021! 🏆 Hey Guys! I'm located in Charlotte, NC (All lessons done though videoconferencing unless you're in CLT) Audio production lessons -$50/hr Songwriting lessons - $50/hr ProTools Lessons - $50/hr Custom ProTools template for your voice - $300 Don't have PT yet? Download Pro Tools First for free. Recent work stats: Lute - Goldmouf Album Mix / recording engineer for 12 of 13 songs Producer on 4 songs - 100, Eye to Eye, GED, and Overnight 19 million streams on Spotify alone 11.5 million plays on Spotify + 3 million views on Lute's - "GED" video Check the YouTube comments. For the culture! 😉 I co-produced, and mixed that record. (including the live instrumentation in legendary Doppler studios) Did vocal production as well. 3 million views on Ryan Destiny's - "The Same" video a mix engineer / mastering engineer for that ***Read me*** If you're a client of mine, I'm an open book📚! I want you to win, cus if you win, we win! Ask me about publishing questions, general music industry questions, about managers, about production advice! If you've never had anybody in the industry in your corner, you don't know how great that feeling is! (First **A quick note about networking** If, by chance, I am working with people you personally respect or admire, then why spend money with someone else? The music industry is a wild place, and I remember not being in it... nobody said to me, "hey maybe you should find someone ALREADY IN the industry and work with them" ...kind of a "DUH" moment, but it changes everything lol) So, What makes me different? Please DO NOT TAKE THIS THE WRONG WAY lol... You make great songs! I'm here to help you make even better songs. I never get in your way, I only give you options. It's your song and your vision, I help you elevate it. A lot of people don't know that this (vocal producer + artist) relationship is the NORM for the greats! Examples (Artist🎙 x ENGINEER🎚): Thugger x ALEX TUMAY Lil Uzi x KESHA Rihanna x KUK HARELL Justin Beiber x POO BEAR J Cole x JURO MEZ Drake x 40 Jay Z x YOUNG GURU Travis Scott x MIKE DEAN Summer Walker x LONDON Kendrick x ALI Lute x ME (yours truly lol) ****Who am I?**** I’m J Smash and I’m passionate about audio! Especially Rap, Rnb, and Top 40s. I have 8+ years of pro experience, and have seen/done countless things that make me an asset in ANY room. (Let me tell you... It's a wild feeling when you're engineering a session next to the head of a major label). I’m always working with some cool people; Hit me up!

If you’re looking for someone that will push you past what you think, feel or see. Look no further. I’ve had 2 songwriting lessons thus far and I am learning things about myself and my learning style. He is so professional and knowledgeable that it makes writing songs easier than doing it on your own. I would definitely recommend!

I've been producing music since the late 90's but didn't really start taking it seriously until the last couple of years. I was looking for a working professional to fill some gaps in my knowledge and that's exactly what J Smash gave me. Just in the first session, I learned like 4 techniques to improve my workflow that I hadn't thought about before. Things I was doing tediously before that will just be a few clicks now. I feel like our 1 hour session is going to save me hundreds of hours from now into the future. That's pretty valuable to me. I'd recommend J Smash to anyone who's looking to improve their craft. He knows his stuff but he's not annoying about it. He just comes across as a very chill person looking to help you improve your craft.

One of the Best Engineers in the game right now. I’m so glad that I’m stumbled upon him . I sent him a message around 2 am in the morning and In 15 mins he probably responded. If you want to have your songs quality match up with the top music artists in the industry I promise you J smash gives you that and more. Feel free to communicate and ask him questions because that’s when you truly get the best of the best in J smash!

FAQs

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

    I am YOUR personal engineer for hire. One thing all the greats have in common is an in house engineer. Hire me to record, mix, and master your project with the care it deserves! Brand new Universal Audio system with the converters to get that bottom end round and the airy high. Plethora of universal audio plugins as well as some key pieces of outboard gear that I actually use. Got a big project? Consider upfront package deals. Contact for pricing

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

    After you've booked with us, expect a call to both confirm your appointment and your goals. The first call will be short and will help us get familiar with you so we can know how to best serve you, while you get to know us and our process.

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

    I'm a pro tracking and mix engineer in the music industry (let's connect!). I've worked in Hitco (ATL), Tree Sound (ATL), Dreamville (LA), and Doppler Studios (ATL) to name a few. All multi platinum facilities.
