Working with Kenny was incredibly rewarding

"He's a multi-instrumentalist with high skill for all instruments. This single was really a unique project because I did not perform on it so I had to communicate what I wanted and Kenny took what I wanted and at each point he nailed it. High quality, on time, really easy to work with"

CONTACT KENNY

 

ARE YOU A SINGER SONGWRITER / SOLO ARTIST?

I specialize in producing singer-songwriters or artists without a band – to help you create exciting and unique recordings of your music that equals or surpasses industry standards. My extensive and diverse musical background, mastery of many instruments, and years of experience in the studio give you access to a vast arsenal of ideas and sounds that can help define your individuality and give you final products with quality that can usually only be attained with major label budgets/teams. Taking your stripped down songs and ideas to a full band or fully orchestrated arrangement that is unique to your personality and artistry is my specialty. I can take your song(s) from a sketch to fully mastered commercial quality release. Recording can be done in my studio, a studio in your area or I can coach you to record at home or any location that will get your best most creative performance.

STUDIO RECORDING

I can organize/book at studio session in any studio near you or come to my studio in Nashville TN.

CONSULTING

Capturing the Best Recording – Setting up Mics etc – Helping to create a Studio Space – Protools Lessons – General Recording Advice – via Zoom, Skype etc 
If you want to record yourself or create your own studio space to record, I can give you personal advice on how to get the best quality & performance. I can talk to you about room acoustics, help you set up the space, help you buy the right gear, help you figure out the best microphone placement, and how to achieve the best performance.

JUST MIXING

Already have tracks? I am known for my ‘killer mixes’. Mixing is done in my B3P studio. You can record your band yourself if you have the means and send the files remotely to me to mix. It means your band can be located anywhere in the world and be mixed by me.

MASTERING

I also do mastering. Mastering is the final step in producing a song or album. Mastering raises the overall level/volume of songs to compete in the commercial market along side other music so it doesn’t disappear next to songs that have been mastered to current standards. Mastering addresses any overall adjustments that may be needed with EQ and compression etc. In the case of an album, mastering also makes sure the songs sound uniform in volume and tonality. A mastered song is then ready for radio, video or film/tv placement.

GRAPHIC DESIGN & PHOTOGRAPHY

Sabine provides graphic design to help you produce a fully complete artist’s package and any merchandise for your independent musical career. She can also help you with your distribution, file uploading and advice.

PRICING

FREE initial consultation with no obligation – to see if we are a fit!
Upfront non refundable DEPOSIT of $250 for clients who have not worked with me previously, before any work starts for the first song.

LISTEN TO CLIENT SONGS

 

UNIQUE

Decades of working with artists not only as a producer but also a side man, has taught me to celebrate the unique qualities of an artist and their songs. When I produce a song, it is my goal to find and amplify those unique qualities. CLIENT’S SONGS

QUALITY

Amazing sounding recordings, excellent musicianship, and well-crafted songs with great arrangements are the elements of music that capture my spirit. Having come up in the days of tape and vinyl, I was fortunate to experience the discipline of studio recording. This knowledge, along with ever advancing new technologies, allows me to provide sonically stunning results. We are a Nashville Music Production service providing the industry with amazing results compared with large, expensive recording facilities.
WHAT CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY

COST

It takes a team to make great recordings, and teams can be expensive. Being a multi-instrumentalist in many genres along with being an addict of the recording arts allows me to be multiple team players for you! We also have amazing Nashville and Bay Area musicians we hire for the instruments I don’t play, so we can support local musicians.

DIVERSE PALETTE

Many bands and many styles have given me lots of ‘colors’ I can use to also help other artists with their masterpieces! Starting my musical journey on clarinet and saxophone, then receiving an electric guitar as a gift when I was 12, going acoustic when I wanted to go solo, I ended up in numerous musical arenas. With the woodwinds, I became interested in jazz and classical, and with the guitar, I went in directions of rock, funk, punk, world music and alternative. Kenny Schick Music

FLEXIBILITY

I have learned to communicate and work in any way possible to achieve successful results, whether you have little experience or have been a professional for decades. Being a producer, a solo artist, a side man, a private teacher and a session musician, I have surely learned that there is not a ‘one size fits all’  approach when it comes to creative types.

EXPERIENCE

Having started my musical journey as an artist and performer myself, I understand YOUR perspective in creating songs. Playing various instruments in a broad array of styles and being passionate about the recording arts/production for decades has just given me a lot of ‘ammunition’ to help YOU find YOUR voice and realize the potential in YOUR songs.

Contact us for more information or if you have any questions – no obligation!
