Nick Fowler, Gapp Project
“Scattering drum patterns, creeping synths, the twang of a guitar and layered backing vocals gives the track a weight that is breathtaking.”
Shayen de Silva, hhhhappy.com
“Paul is a great producer and musician.”
“A lot happened in three days and the result was two very clean and very beautiful songs which would be the opening tracks on Stamps & Coins.”

Music Production

When producing a record, an album or just a single many bands wonder why they may even need a producer or how a producer may be able to help them. At Jaminajar this is understood. What a producer does is different on each job. But one thing we do on every job is take 100 percent responsibility for the creative and technical outcome of the finished product, ensuring it is of the highest standard in every way. This does not mean we’re making our record. We’re here to serve you the artist and make your record.

First up we get the deal done so everything is clear. For your peace of mind and for the most creative working environment, all our production deals are done under a fixed price structure so there are no nasty surprises…

“It’s all about the song”

There’s no doubt in our mind that the primary reason why a recording becomes loved by many is that it’s a great song that is well performed. We quality check all of that. We help choose your best song/s if need be – even if it’s not quite complete – and help you finish it. Then we help to get the absolute best performances out of each and every musician and singer. If you’re short a musician we take care of that as well. We have access to some of Australia’s finest.

Once the recording and editing is done we mix your track/s to perfection ensuring that the artist’s message is most easily conveyed to their audience. We can also help with the final mastering of the finished recordings or refer you to a top mastering house and attend the mastering session.

When your product is “ready for prime time” we can introduce you to some of the top people in the field that you’ll need to help promote your recordings and to help manage your business affairs as your popularity grows.

In a nutshell, that’s how we do it at Jaminajar. Book your no obligation meeting with us today. You’ll get a free review of your tunes and an hour with a world class producer discussing your music.
