"Tom Eaton has been invaluable in bringing my music to new heights. His expertise with mixing and mastering, combined with his ability to add stunning instrumental accompaniment, has transformed the sound of my tracks from good to great. It's hard to come across someone with such a remarkable set of skills, artistry, and knowledge so I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have Tom on board. I highly recommend his services to any musician looking to take their music to the next level."

Emmy® Award-winning composer

“I have worked with some of the best recording and mastering engineers in the world in the last 30 years. The thing that separates one from another isn’t MORE knowledge or access to the shiniest equipment – – it is commitment. Tom Eaton is a great engineer by any measure. However, it is his commitment to making every single project he touches excellent that puts him at the top of the list for me. His loving and passionate work on my recording was wonderful and he gave me important creative feedback that improved the final product enormously. I am so happy to call Tom a friend but I am truly grateful to be able to collaborate with the rarest of artisans.”

Composer and Acoustic Guitarist

"Tom understands that the technical side is always and forever secondary to the music. It exists for one reason only: to enhance the emotion, the vibe, the feeling, and what's interesting in the music. He said something to me that has - across the board - raised my awareness of how best to make music. He had sent me the latest print in progress, and it was great, and I called him back and said, 'This sounds so great; what did you do? How are you treating the sound?' And he said, 'You know, I don't even think of it that way. I listen along, and it's only when something takes me out of the story that I stop, rewind, figure out what distracted me, and then fix the problem. Then continue.' That's amazing."
