Elan Trotman in studio today.

      I’ve had the great opportunity to work with Elan in various ways over the past several years. As his recording/mixing engineer, I also record him for his feature performances on record singles.

These recordings are then sent to the artist that created the song and is then assembled with the rest of the song! It sounds just like everyone was in the studio together.

I have worked this way with him for years in between recording and mixing Elan on his own singles and albums.

ELAN TROTMAN LIVE! “Smooth & Saxy” – Danbury, CT.
