In this episode we go over some of the fun stuff you need to get ready before you release your music, like your band logo and your band photos. But those also touch on one very crucial topic, and that is "Your Band as a Brand" 

Throughout my years as a musician and recording engineer, I have made many mistakes, and I have watched many new bands make the same mistakes. I want to help newer bands that are starting out make the best use of their time, and reduce stress while working together. The music industry has changed drastically, and the rules and methods of the 80s and 90s no longer work.




About Nate:













I have been involved with music for the majority of my life. I started out as a student of guitar and drums before I expanded my repertoire to performing on stages. I very quickly also took up providing live sound, mixing, and  recording  services. I also work on producing heavy alternative bands. With a vast range of experience working with multiple different styles of music, I have a passion for making sure underground artists are able to provide their fans with the quality of music they deserve. I focus on making sure that the creation you hear in your head is captured and brought to life in the way you envisioned.

​The goal is to provide premium mixes and masters that allow you to showcase your art to the world and to provide amazing live videos that capture your raw energy.
