Ainjel's Experience

After spending half a life as an indie singer-songwriter, I moved to Los Angeles from Austin and started procuring work as a studio musician / vocalist. Ignited by my time in the studio and a lifetime of home recording, I began formally studying audio engineering and set off on my journey to the producer’s chair. I’ve been gratefully working full time in the real-world record production universe for the past 10 years. My journey has helped me collect a bountiful creative toolbox.
