“I have never met a player who has the ability to play so much, yet have the generosity in spirit to serve the songs best and play less…who will hear “the parts” before he plays them.” –Gene Kim, producer/engineer

Elevating the Artist through development. Deane believes great recordings begin with a great song. Starting with pre-production and walking artists through each step of making a recording, he gives the artist a chance to realize the best recording they can make. In the studio, Deane is known for his concise direction and organization, providing comfortable, fun, and creative sessions for all involved. Experienced as a session/touring guitarist, a musical director, a writer, an engineer, and producer, he understands how to get the best out of everyone by trusting in their process and skills as much as his own.
