You’re a songwriter and a performer
You’ve spent a lot of time honing your craft and passion for creating music. You have worked incredibly hard on your music and want to make it into something tangible to share with the world. You're ready, and want to not only record your music, but to take that next step into building and growing as an artist. Whether its your first time or you're a seasoned musician with records under your belt, you need the right people behind you.
The record making process should be enjoyable and your focus during should be your creativity and passion. You don't want to have to come in and out of the mind sets of both engineer and musician to deal with technical headaches and troubleshooting. Stress in the studio shows in the final product, and a bad recording session sets you up. You need someone who’s trained and experienced to know how to be organized, solve any issues before they show up, and take down anything that may pop up while keeping the session moving and fun to be a part of.
In this ever growing and changing music world you need people you can rely on to help with your “big picture”. And not just help create it or improve on it, but to make it a reality. You should work with others who want to see you grow and grow with you! After all, your music is incredibly important to you, so shouldn’t someone spend as much time and passion bringing them to life as you did writing them?
I am a problem solver and an idea executor.
(And that’s exactly why you need an audio engineer in the first place.)
I’ve always been a problem solver, even as a kid, I would build lego sets without the instructions, and take things apart just to see how they worked. I did the same thing to my songs and even further down the rabbit hole to studying music production and audio engineering. I understand what can be done to make a good song and what we need to do to get there. Allow me to introduce myself...
My name is Zach Zyla, I am a multi-instrumentalist, multi-genre songwriter and audio engineer/producer. I enjoy being both sides of a very different coin as both an artist and engineer, it has allowed me to understand the disciplines and abilities needed for both positions. And because of that I understand the passion that goes into writing music and believe that it should be reciprocated and carried throughout the entire process. I take that same passion into all projects I work on, whether it is my own or someone else’s.
