Hourly Rate:  I work on an hourly rate in 3 hour blocks.  It is the way I have found things to be the most efficient for both parties and eliminate ear fatigue.  I always send out an MP3 of the work that day to the client and discuss the session before we move on and schedule the next block.

3 Hour Session:  Typically this will be between 3 and 5 blocks depending on whether your song is a stripped down acoustic or a full production.  This is not set in stone as sometimes there are factors that will make a project take longer like hiring instrumentalists or singers for more parts or layers etc.  Anything extra will always be on my hourly rate. 

Full Song:  This is an option I offer to those who want to pay up front for a whole song.  The advantage is that I won't be adding hours to the end of the project.  I do however cap things at two revisions one the final mix has been sent out. 

Song Evaluation:  If you would like me to evaluate your song before we begin then you can choose this option.  I will need a typed PDF of your lyrics and an MP3 of your song.  It does not have to be high quality (your iphone recording will do) but these formats are how I would like to receive them.  No exceptions.

Career consultation: If you would like some help, guidance or mentoring on your career and some advice on your songs or direction on the next steps you should take, I am happy to offer this via Skype. 

Artwork: I have designed album artwork for my own projects and projects for my clients.  I have recommendations for production companies in Canada and the US for CD duplication, t-shirts, buttons, touring etc.  Part of what I do is artist development and give back to others from what I have learned from the music industry.
