Jakobs Portfolio Bio:
As an engineer I am fascinated by the mix. It was in the early days of recording myself in my bedroom that I discovered just how much difference an engineer can imprint on a song. I read about Geoff Emerick recording The Beatles and Alan Parsons' work with Pink Floyd on Dark Side of the Moon. The thought was quickly identified that if anyone other than these talented engineers were to have worked on these classics, they very well may not have been hits!
With such a multitude of sounds and tones, it's my job to create a mix that satisfies the listener and will stand the test of time. I am all about creating masterpieces, sonic landscapes and tone monsters! I like to consider myself a 'one-stop-shop', where I can lead you from production to recording, through mixing and mastering, and into distribution. You bring the songs and I'll guide you through the whole process.
Though I enjoy almost all music genres, I feel I am most fluent with Rock, Hard Rock & Metal, Indie, Punk, Ska, Progressive Rock, Blues, Psychedelic, Folk, & some Classical. I am always interested in starting a new project, big or small. Contact me today and we'll start work tomorrow!
