“Steven did an incredible job producing my album! He totally embraced the vision I had for it, gave me great input on ways I could make it even better, and surrounded me with the right people and tools to finally make the album I wanted.”

-Melissa Sandullo

“Steven was awesome to work with. It was my first time working with a producer and he helped shape my songs into gorgeous pieces of art. If you are a solo artist, he can provide help in solidifying lyrics, provide an all-star cast of studio players, and a great studio to get it done.”

-Brad Kleinschmidt

“Steven is an incredibly talented producer and musician. He is sure to make any project unique, fun, and top quality. One of the best in the industry at writing, collaborating, and producing! Highly recommended.”

-Josh Sadlon

We’ve worked in almost every genre with some of the largest names in the industry, had chart success on Billboard’s Top 40, helped our artists land prominent TV spots (MTV, Parks and Recreation, New Girl, CBS Evening News, etc...), and understand what goes into being a successful artist. If you’re looking to take your music to the next level, get in touch with us.

Together we’ll forge an artistically and commercially compelling sound that is relevant now and HEREAFTER.
