The FOOD Audio / ToneCrafters
About this pro
When entrusting your music production to another, the probabilities of gaining a product that is what you're hoping for, much less "more" than you're hoping, is probably a small success margin. The possibilities of your vision being misunderstood or missed in the end game are a very real problem. It is a fine line to put a light on a vision or reflect an idea and capture that vision without changing the vision to something not originally intended. Calvin Venus & Tonecrafters are gifted in taking a vision or idea that is already complete or well developed and polishing it into a heightened musical presentation. Their ability to add color and texture to a music production that enhances the dimensionality of a listening experience and not move it into an entirely new event, is a rare gift. From day one, my relationship with Calvin and Tonecrafters grew from great to life long family. After spending a year working on this debut album, we have created something that CCM hasn't seen since the likes of Rich Mullins. Creating something new and fresh, yet timeless and universal ... the world will soon learn more about this talented studio master of production.Jun 14, 2017

I have to say I was pleased with the work Calvin Venus did on my first professional project REFOCUS. The mix and mastering was phenomenal. His efforts and talent took this project to the next level.
