Production Proposal for Caitlin Smith

Read this first

Let's create something that you will be really proud of.

You’ve written songs you believe in, you have a vision for the sound, so now it’s time to put your music into the hands of someone else.

On your recording I bring all my resources as a session guitarist/multi-instrumentalist to help you turn your vision into an amazing sounding recording that you and your fans can enjoy for the rest of your lives.

What You Get

THE OBVIOUS STUFF

Single instruments, doubling, or orchestration

My usual process is to take your scratch or bedtrack and orchestrate a few layers over top. These might include a different acoustic rhythmic layers (some combination of ac. guitars, mandolin, resonator, banjo) and some electric guitars.

If it feels right I may double a strumming or melodic part to widen the mix. Some songs might need a melodic hook or riff. Some tunes need a great solo. I’m happy to work with you to find the right approach.

If you only need a single part – that’s fine too. I’m happy to do whatever suits the project the best.

Professional Sound

I record in a professional studio with a world class analog recording chain. The room is tuned for studio recordings. The gear list includes beautiful mics, preamps, instruments, and guitar amps.

Organized file delivery

One aspect of collaborating online that not everyone thinks about is file management. I name and deliver your files in a super organized and easy way so they’re ready to drop into your mix. 

NOT SO OBVIOUS STUFF

Atmospheric, textural sounds

If the songs warrants it, I have a large musical and technological toolbox for creating atmospheric and textural sounds that can give beautiful dimension and depth to your songs. It’s part of my sound and something many of the artists I work with really appreciate.

Revisions

Included for free are three rounds of revisions. You will receive a link to a rough mix of your song with my parts added. 

Money back guarantee

My goal is for you to be 100% happy with your recording. In the very unlikely event that we can’t get the guitar parts sounding how you want, then I will give you a full refund (prior to downloading individual files).

Here's what is NOT included

These are the things that are not included in the price, and should be completed by the producer or engineer. If needed, I offer most of these services at an extra charge.

Production

This includes adding other instruments to your song (such as drums, bass, keyboards), detailed song feedback and arranging, 

Editing

If there is an issue with the files you send me, I cannot edit them.

Mixing

I will send you a rough mix of your song with my parts added, but that is for reference only and not intended to be a polished mix.
