Becoming Bristol

Super excited to have mastered the new single by Becoming Bristol! These guys are making some serious noise with their music. Mark my words, it's just a matter of time before they hit the billboards!

Friends and Family, we’re pleased to share with you our newest single “Separate Souls”. We put a lot of work into this one and we’re very proud of it. You can stream/download/listen to it basically anywhere music is sold. (link below, and in the comments).

Good hangs last night with my buddy and sick #producer Ben Johnson. Talked about everything from astronaut piss to Devin Townsend 😂😂 It was great to catch up and hear about how his #audio career has been exploding because of all his relentless dedication to adding value to those around him. Last night was yet another great example of this. 🍻 #musicproducer #musicbusiness #nailthemix #dothedamnthing #universalstudios

[Don't mess up your next big release]

My friends at Outerloop Group have a step by step program to get your music out with maximum exposure and buzz. I went through the "Release it Right" course and found it to be SUPER helpful and wanted to share it with all of you. Definitely worth a look - especially for the price (which is going up after this weekend!)

Could be the difference between getting a chart topping release and a song that gets buried in the YouTube vault for all of eternity 🤣

You can thank me later 🍻

This is a great reminder to live in the present and not let our past mistakes dictate our future. Whatever challenges you run into this week, treat them as opportunities to learn and not obstacles that prevent progress. Always live in the present.

It fills me with joy to know I captured and enhanced such a significant moment in my client's life through my artistic vision for their song.

This is why I put 200% into every, single song that comes into the studio.

While mixing and producing music may not be curing cancer, it definitely impacts people in a positive and inspiring way every day. I love this job ❤️

#ranttime I'm fired up tonight (in a good way).

Analysis paralysis is real. Stop worrying about what the best gear is, what brand plugin you should be using, or what other people will think of you or your music. Just start creating authentic art. Why you ask?

The more music you write, the better your songs will be. You also learn what works and what doesn't. These experiences build your character and allow you to grow both as a musician and person. Without taking the first step to write new music and finish what you started, you will NEVER grow in your personal life or as a musician.

So starting right now, stop making up excuses and take deliberate action to finish something you started. If you write music, finish those songs that have been sitting half written for the last 3 years and let them go. Learn from your mistakes, try new things, and challenge yourself to grow everyday.

Aim for the stars with everything you do. No one likes to fail, but if you do, at least you tried.

Late night #grind. Each day of #recording ends with an editing session to prepare the songs for recording the next day. This #workflow is great for getting the most out of every second of recording, but you can burn out quickly if you don't love what you are doing. Fortunately, I can't think of a better way to spend my time than making art with 2 of the most passionate and talented #musicians I know. New Our Cadence album coming soon.
