I’m a music producer, recording engineer, studio musician, and arranger. I’m interested in developing talent and producing music. Most of my time is spent with musical story tellers (Singer/Songwriters, Rappers, or Bands). My team and I often provide the sound track (musical arrangement). I offer development/production packages to uniquely talented artists. If you are interested in discussing a music project please email a request to meet at the studio.
Listen to some examples of my production on Sound Cloud. Although the best stuff is unreleased (so come by the studio and I’ll give you a sample of what I’ve been working on lately). My Sound Cloud only features music that I have produced. But you can hear examples of some great projects that have been engineered at Euphonic Sound on Music Samples.
Here is some Information about guitar, theory, vocal, and recording arts lessons.
I work in a variety of North American genres (mostly Indie Rock, Singer/Songwriter, Folk, Hip Hop). I’ve engineered or produced hundreds of recordings featuring celebrated and award winning artists, under ground legends and unknown geniuses.
At the core of my production method is collaboration. Every production involves a unique team of session musicians, arrangers, producers and engineers.
My music production/artist development team is discussed below. I also regularly call on a host of highly in-demand A bass players & drummers, as well as a variety of gifted guitar players, horn players, string players, keyboard players etc. Each artists I work with requires a team with relative sensibilities. I choose specific musicians who I feel will best compliment the artists style and sound.
The Euphonic Sound House Band is made up of the following fine musicians:
James Pew is a multi instrumentalist who specializes in guitar. James is usually the arranger on the projects he produces at Euphonic Sound. In addition to guitar, James also regularly contributes percussion, bass, keys and harmony vocals to projects recorded at Euphonic Sound.

Brownman is extremely versatile and plays well on non-Jazz material too, his sound fits perfectly in the indie rock or folk singer/songwriter or hip hop worlds.
