Hello, My name is E. Smitty, I am a Producer/Engineer, Owner/Founder of Sound Alive Studios & also a Manager/Consultant & the CEO of S.A.S. Management Worldwide. My journey with music began when I was 14, by my freshman year in college, I established my first production company & record label. In the following 5 years I would produce over 25 complete albums & sell over 150,000 physical copies of my music. In 2010 I signed a distribution deal with Universal, deals with Fat Beats & other Indie labels followed. Through out my journey, I have built a power house social media network, I've produced hundreds of records, mixed & mastered thousands and have helped countless artists and musicians achieve their dreams. My experience has made me one of the most sought after independent Producer's/Engineer's in the industry & allowed me to work with Grammy winning, Gold, Platinum & independent artists, musicians/record labels & earn major endorsements from #Focusrite & FLStudio.
As a Producer/Engineer, I believe in making authentic music that emanates from the heart and soul. I believe that the most important aspect of making music is the relationship with Artist & Producer. A producer should be able to create the exact sound to match an artists profile & artist should be able to articulate that sound to the producer. I am open to all genres, I play keys, guitar and I'm pretty versed in daws & workstations.
As a Manager/Consultant & CEO of S.A.S. Management I understand the needs & the checks & balances that are necessary to bring about a fruitful career in any field in the music industry.
These are a few of the recent artists i've produced or engineered records for ASAP Mob, ASAP Ferg, ASAP Rocky, Sadat-X, Chino XL, Kool G Rap, Lil Dap, Ben iLLa, Struggle The Blind Chemist, JT3, Elz Jenkins, Dynamic Equilibrium, Future, R. Kelly, Bobby V, Big Krit, Bo-Starks, Armageddon, Murdah Baby, iLL Al Skratch & Many more.
