This playlist features a collection of music I mixed at The Bridge Sound & Stage in Cambridge, MA. I also recorded, produced, or mastered a lot of these songs too. As a producer & songwriter myself, I bring that viewpoint to my engineering work. I am not shy about adding production or re-working the arrangement to help present the song in the best way possible. My clients come to me for my creative sensibilities in addition to my mixing skills.
In terms of tracking, I can & will lend my input as an artist & producer to the experience if that's what the artist wants from me. In the past I have suggested lyric changes/additions, different deliveries, layering techniques, harmonies & more to help my clients make their songs the best they can be.

Tell Me About Your Project
“We love working with Mertz and continue to board planes in order to do so. Tracking is just the base of what he provides. His ear for production, melody, and mixing has consistently helped us discover and improve our sound. He maintains professionalism, while never being afraid to share his opinion for the betterment of a project. He has been the epitome of above and beyond throughout our relationship. As artists who only produce and write with each other, he is our most trusted and valued collaborator.”

"Working with Mertz changed the way I make music."
"I studied his practice of practice. Mertz rehearsed meticulously, & continues to strive for perfection in a way I would be unfamiliar with were it not for his introduction."
