Julian Coryell has been producing artists for over ten years. He co-owns a full service recording studio in Venice, CA along with drummer Mark Schulman (Pink, Cher) and engineer/mixer Erich Gobel (John Mayer, Ray Charles). Julian produces artists at his studio or other studios, depending on the artist's needs.
Julian begins all pre-productions with an in depth discussion focused on identifying what the artists goals are for the project. This discussion serves to clarify and solidify the understanding of the total project, which in turn ensures it's integrity will be maintained throughout the production process. Once the goals are understood, Julian works with each artist to identify any weak points in each song, lyrically and compositionally, and works to improve the songs until the artist has an outstanding and truly competitive composition fit for production.
As a multi-instrumentalist, Julian is able to play the majority of instruments on the record (drums, bass, electric and acoustic guitars, keyboards, piano, percussion, background vocals, etc). Whenever necessary or at the request of the artist, Julian will arrange for other musicians to perform on the record. There is no ego involved in this process. The primary goal is to create a piece of work that the artist will love for the rest of their lives, and it is from this point of view that all production and musical choices are made.
After production is complete, the artist is sent rough mixes to review and comment on prior to delivery of final mixes.
