Vince is a professional, he knows his music and his experience shows. The combination of his professionalism, knowledge and experience makes him one of the best producers out there. He takes the time to dig deeper and really connect with your music.

I got the privilege to work with Joey Auch this past spring of 2015. Not only is his production skills amazing, he also guided me and helped me further my career in the music industry. I would recommend anyone who is looking for an outstanding producer.

Vince is not only a talented and well versed engineer, but it is apparent that he truly has a deep appreciation for music. His constructive criticism and positive comments are honest and valuable. Vince is professional and respectable. I reached out to him on Thumbtack regarding setting up a consultation and received a response that same night. He is also flexible when it comes to scheduling sessions and the price per hour is very reasonable given the high quality of work that he produces.

Finding Steven through Thumbtack was perhaps the best thing that's happened to me as a musician. In working with Steven on my debut EP, I not only found a great musical collaborator, but a trusted adviser and partner in the music industry. I worked with Steven to record and produce my debut 6-song EP. Not only are his rates beyond competitive given his skill and equipment, but Steven believed in the project, took a personal interest, and leveraged his industry connections to bring in some world class talent to contribute to the record, making it of a quality beyond my expectations. Through Steven I can say that I've worked not only with the talents at 4D Audio, but with top notch session musicians fresh off international tours, and a 12-Time Grammy winning mix engineer. I can't recommend working with Steven any higher -- you can find plenty of people who will bring you in, press record, and send you on your way...Steven will help bring your music to the next level. I look forward to continuing my musical partnership with Steven for years to come.

Steven is one of the most professional people in the music industry I have ever worked with. Don't let his rates fool you. He is a top notch engineer and producer that will get you even better results than the other studios who charge far more. From the very get go I knew that I was in good hands with my project. Steven can work with any budget and make sure that you are happy with your songs. He will get the best performances out of you so that you can showcase your true talent to the world. I could not have done my EP without his help. I am so glad that I met him and worked with him on this. I can tell you right now he will be my first phone call the next time I ever want to record something in the future. This is NO B.S. Steven is the real deal and he will deliver for you. His studio and equipment are great and he has everything you could possibly need. Don't hesitate to go with him. You know you are getting a brilliant producer who will understand where you are coming from and get you to where you want to be. Feel free to call him to discuss your project and you'll be able to hear his passion over the phone and if that doesn't seal the deal then read this review again. Steven is the man and you are in good hands.
