Hi my name is Zach Hughes. I am a music producer and recording engineer. I help artists take tiny pieces of their souls and transmute them into wonderful recordings. I'm here to guide you through the recording process and nerd out about microphones, amps, monitoring, and mix faders while you focus on what you truly care about. I also offer 1-on-1 coaching to artists who are interested in learning how to produce their own music.

"The genius Zach Hughes' steadfast support (on and off the court, if you will), has transformed and inspired my life and music-making over the past few years. The recording process can be stressful and expensive; Zach can do a whole lot to alleviate some of that stress. He is a friend, an artist, and a scientist - a spreadsheet warrior and a secret visionary. I'm very grateful for him. Call him for all your recording needs."
"Making my first album with Zach was the best decision I could have made for my music. Zach is incredibly thoughtful, patient and pragmatic -- a true yin to an artist's yang. He's a forward-thinking business partner, a detail-oriented engineer, and a passionate producer. If you are looking for someone to help you achieve your creative vision and make a special record, I cannot recommend Zach Hughes enough."
"Working with Zach Hughes as a producer on my debut album was one of the most meaningful parts of my year. Not only was Zach willing to hear me out on creative ideas and guide me closer to our collective concept for my album, he also never ceased to amaze me in how willing to help he was in other spheres of my musical career. Zach is a gifted producer, loyal teammate, and all around special person to create with. I wholeheartedly recommend Zach Hughes for your next recording project. Thank you, Zach!!"
"I couldn’t be happier with my first ever time using SoundBetter because I was able to land this incredible opportunity to collaborate with Zach. The entire process was not only pleasant and professional, but every bit of exciting and inspiring as a songwriter/musician would want a creative collaboration to be. If you’re looking for someone who understands the analog sound thoroughly and you want your track to shine, look no further. Will 100% be coming back for future business!"
"I have recorded twice with Zach and it was honestly the best experience I could have asked for. Zach is such an awesome and fun producer. He listens to your vision for the music and allows you to make what you want. He also is amazing at bringing your ideas to life! I love that he tries to apply the song to his life and actually connect with it. Cannot wait for future projects with him!"
THE BROTHERS HOLK
"Me and my brothers recorded our first EP with Zach and it was a better experience than we could've imagined. Zach is incredibly knowledgeable about recording, engineering, mixing and everything else that he does. He was also super helpful in giving us advice on being a band, releasing and promoting music, and understanding streaming platforms."
