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 and professional sounding 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 as well. Whether it's your first time or you're a seasoned musician with records under your belt, you need the right people behind you from that first note recorded to the release of the music.
The record making process should be enjoyable and your focus throughout 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 to 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 your songs to life as you did writing them?
I am a problem solver who is organized and thinking ahead and an idea executor.
(And that's exactly why you need an engineer)
Even as a kid I would build lego sets without the instructions and take things apart just to see how they worked. I would later do the same thing to my favorite songs. Then even further down the rabbit hole in studying music production and audio engineering. I understand what can be done to make a good song and how to get there. And I understand the tech/business sides. Allow me to properly 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.
