Hi, I’m Steven Potaczek. As a producer, I help songwriting artists create absolutely amazing recordings that successfully launch their music careers.
As a veteran music producer with a proven track record of making albums that help artists stand out and successfully reach their audiences, I understand the specific challenges you face. Through a series of simple, actionable steps, I will help take your songs from demos on your phone to commercially-compelling works of art that are ready for radio, live shows, and successful licensing.
Let's talk: book your free 30-minute introductory call or coffee with me. We will discuss your musical vision and you can ask questions about your next steps towards pursuing the album you want to make.
Let's bring your vision and
sound into vivid, wild life.
I’ve worked in practically every genre with some of the largest names in the industry (from The Band Perry to Josh Garrels), helped clients land prominent TV spots (MTV, CBS Evening News, Parks and Recreation, New Girl, etc...), and understand what goes into being a successful artist. If you’re looking to take your music to the next level, let’s talk!
“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 musicians and tools to finally make the album I wanted.”
“I had a blast working with Steven! I love the way my songs and recordings turned out. I’ve received nothing but great feedback on the finished product, and that’s in no small way a result of working with Steven!”
“When I first met Steven, I confessed how I had not enjoyed my past studio recording experiences. Steven has completely changed all that! My band enjoyed every moment with him and always felt comfortable and respected. I am more than happy to recommend HEREAFTER to you (especially if you’ve had less than great prior experiences)!”
