ABOUT

I am a singer-songwriter/producer-engineer who has completed his first album of his own material. I called my first album "Self Confidence" (2022) because I sang and played every note, on drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, harmonica, trumpet, alto sax, tenor sax, trombone, timbales, congas, and violin, and I also mixed and mastered it in my home-based studio. It's the first product from my production facilities.

Here's what I'm offering:
- I'm looking to build my portfolio, so I am willing to make records/demos/mix/master for very, very low fees. I need the experience more than I need the money.
- I'm open to doing overdubbing and producing beats for a fee. I can produce horn sections using trumpet, alto sax, tenor sax, and trombone.
- I'm open to custom commercial music production opportunities as well, including scoring.

If you're interested in hiring me, reach out to me at danielbutterfield22 [at] [dot] com and mention this profile. Visit my website at https://musicproducer.danielbutterfield.com. Hear my sound on Spotify--artist Daniel Butterfield.
