your music can make an impact.
When I was 21, I was diagnosed with cancer.
I spent three months in the radiation clinic at Stanford Hospital.
Every morning I'd walk in, take off my shirt, and lie down on a cold, metal table.
“Is there anything special you want to listen to today?” a nurse would ask.
“No,” I'd always say. ”Just your favorites.”
A few seconds later, music would fill the room as a massive metal machine spun around me, spewing radiation through my chest.
While radiation healed my body, that music healed my spirit. It reminded me that I wasn't alone. That there was a world beyond cancer. And that somehow, things were going to be okay.
As an artist, you can make this kind of impact. Your music can uplift and inspire others in ways you can't possibly imagine.
Somewhere out there, there's a heartbroken teenager, lonely twenty-two year-old, or terrified cancer patient waiting to be saved by your songs.
And if this is what you're about, I'm here to help you make it happen.
meet your new mixer.
Hey, I'm Jason — a Los Angeles–based mixer who helps artists make records that uplift and inspire others.
I'm a graduate of New York University's Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, where I honed my skills through mentorships with Grammy-winning music-makers like Bob Power (The Roots, A Tribe Called Quest), Kevin Killen (David Bowie, U2), and Jim Anderson (Miles Davis, Death Cab For Cutie).
Through my website Behind The Speakers and workshops at NYU, I've taught hundreds of thousands of music-makers how to mix. My how-to articles and videos have been viewed over four million times, and can be found in publications by Berklee, TuneCore, SonicScoop, The Pro Audio Files, and Disc Makers.
You can hear my work on records featuring artists like Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Maggie Rogers, Disney Channel star Sabrina Carpenter, Riff Raff, Phoebe Ryan, Madilyn Bailey, Alice Kristiansen, Lenny White, and Grammy-winning producer Jeff Bova (Michael Jackson, Celine Dion).
