DRAGON'S LAIR

The Dragon's Lair is a culmination of unbound sonic capabilities accompanied by years of experience.

Whatever phase of the process you are in, the Dragon's Lair can assist you in realizing your full potential. Do you simply need guitar tracks (rhythm, overdubs, solo/fills, etc.)? Do you need to record your band and have it mixed? Are you in need of a mastering engineer? Need help with pre–release (artwork/graphic design, promo)? Or, are you simply looking to collaborate with someone in the songwriting process? If any of these questions are relevant to your process, drop me a line and let's see if together we can realize your vision.

I've worked with a variety artists, covering various genres and styles. The tools and know how to get you where you want to go are here.
