Hailing from California with roots in both L.A. and San Francisco, Matthew established himself as touring musician in for the last 20 years. After moving to Nashville in 2015 he attended S.A.E. Institute of Technology Nashville and graduated Valedictorian of his class with a degree in Music Production and Engineering.  Soon after he met President of H.O.M.E. Logan Crowell, and partnered up with him to form Record Realization a multi-faceted music production company. Through this venture, he has since built a recording studio from the ground up where Record Realization artists record with Matthew as their Producer. Matthew also creates loop libraries for companies like, Presonus, Native Instruments, and Steinberg as well as freelance editing, Producing, and engineering.  Now Back in the Bay Area, Matt is focused on creating music for TV and film as well as producing a wide variety of incredible artists in all genres.



“It was a pleasure working with Matt on my band's project. Matt is incredibly talented, creative, and versatile when it comes to producing and recording music. He had tons of great ideas to give our music an extra edge."
Katie Johnson - Eversol

“One of the best experience’s I’ve had recording. Matt McDavid has a fantastic ear and is meticulous in getting a great sound.”
- Sherrlia - The Halfhearted Misanthropes

Matthew is more than a great mastering engineer. He's an accomplished composer, sample library creator has a great set of ears and is master of so many of the things which beyond my own technical acumen. I take my mixes as far as I can and then entrust them to him to take them to the next level. This lets me focus more on the few things that I, myself can do well and takes away the stress of bringing albums to completion.

I have been consistently impressed with his work on the 3 records he's mixed and mastered for me so far. He's prompt, professional, easy-going, reliable and a great communicator.

My Studio

Based in the Heart of Sonoma California, my home studio is a fully functioning production house. Equipped with professional grade audio analog gear and top of the line digital accessories, you can relax in the tranquility of my home while we make radio-ready music together.  Every inch of my home is utilized with an experimental approach to recording as well as a large dedicated vocal booth/isolation room. Fantastic mic selection and outboard gear will make your audio shine. I look forward to welcoming you to my home! As well I have a resident studio that I manage in Sebastopol CA.  This I use for full bands, drums and any other recording needs that would need a larger space. The studio is equipped with amazing top of the line outboard gear and microphones.  There are many world percussion and sound healing instruments available here as well for whatever the mood inspires!  



Please describe your goal for this project as well as your budget and I will get back to you shortly.  Also, send a link to your music if available. Thank you!
