Evergreen Records FAQ
What genres do you work with?
We focus on genres related to rock and pop. Basically, anything where the goal is to make the song as epic as possible. Many of our clients are in the worship, country, or indie rock scenes as it sits in the pop and rock worlds.
What are your rates?
You might have noticed we only post vague “starting point” rates online. That's because every project is special! We think it's a disservice to you to try to apply a one-size-fits-all approach to every project. Contact us and we'll spend time getting to know you and your project so we know how to best serve you!
Do you charge by the hour or project?
We charge by the project. This is to best serve you as our focus isn't on “running up the clock” but rather finding the BEST way to address your needs and goals – both for the specific project but also your career as a whole.
Do you operate a public facility for rent?
We are not a public studio facility but rather a music production company with an emphasis on post-production and mixing. We will do tracking for a project, but it's always in service of a project we are PRODUCING.
A production company is a creative team you partner with to see your project completed (aka produced). We partner with artists to bring music to life.
What's the difference between a studio and a production company?
A studio is a public facility where you pay an hourly rate for a building and an engineer.
A production company is a creative team you partner with to see your project completed (aka produced). This is what our specialty is in. We partner with artists to bring music to life.
Can we work remotely?
Yes! We have clients all over the USA. In fact, we are primarily focusing on remote post-production and mixing at this point. You can be anywhere in the country and we can share files, hop on video chat, etc.
Do you offer mastering services?
We are not a mastering studio, but have a number of mastering engineers we work with to complete projects that we produce and mix. If ALL you need is mastering, we'd be happy to refer you to a number of people who will crush your project.
Our specialty is mixing and production and all quotes will include servicing to a mastering engineer that we know will crush it unless you specify otherwise.
What is the difference between mixing and mastering?
Mixing is about taking the production (what's been tracked and edited) and adjust levels, eq, compression, effects, etc. Balance all the track volumes. Add more top end to that guitar. Put more reverb on the vocal. Blend in some vocal distortion.
Mastering is taking a final, printed mix as a whole and preparing it for release. This MIGHT be adjusting EQ for the whole song, compression, limiting, balancing the tones and volumes between all the songs on an album, etc.
Can you help me promote my music?
Unfortunately, we don't offer promotion services. BUT we do have a GIANT guide on the gameplan you should use to promote your music!
I want to get my music on playlists and the radio. Do I need anything special for that?
Playlisters and radio stations are VERY picky about what they play (I would know because I used to work in that industry). Getting song adds is your goal, I suggest creating a specific radio or playlist remix. Contact us for more information on this.
