Welcome to Montesano Music
Where the Art of Songwriting finds a unique voice in the Recording Studio
If you are a singer or songwriter you should be aspiring to express the most authentic version of YOU. Don't be discouraged by all the sound-alike artists out there. The goal is to be yourself, and the truest expression of who you are. So that's where it begins. Recognize your own talents, know your gifts and develop them. You can't be all things to all people who like music, so don't even try. Your style and identity will come by your own limitations as well as your strengths. The recording process is one of the best ways to recognize and define your potential. It's also a great place to refine and perfect your songwriting!
Songwriting as an art form inspires me to create, and to share through the process of recording. As a musician first, then singer, and finally as a prolific writer and sound engineer, I know what it takes to bring all the elements together, taking a simple idea to another level through recording. Here at my studio in San Diego I can offer whatever elements you need to complete your project.

Montesano Music is dedicated to quality music productions and compositions. But more than that, I am here to assist you in finding your own unique voice through the process of collaboration. Your talent is only a part of the formula for success. You need songs that grab your audience with emotion, with great lyrics and a sound that compliments your natural voice.
